Wanna be linked up to the main page?

If you have a personal blog that you will be using to post artwork and illustration related material, let me know so I can put your name umer the link list. I can use personal website too, I will just need to know the web address and the spelling of your first and last name. Write a reply to this post and I will make sure it gets done!
This is a great way to stay motivated and look at what everyone is doing.

Have a great summer and see some of you next fall. For those of you graduating, congratulations and keep in touch! And to everyone, keep doing art through the summer, and DEFINATELY post it for all to see.

Da Vinci Code

So I'm a dork. I listened to Da Vinci Code on my ipod and doodled this picture. I thought it would be fun to scan and colour. Here is a before and after version. Anybody else read it? I guess this is kind of my vision of Sophie, except she would be less cartoony in real life...and darker hair...and older looking.

Comic stuff...

Here is a sample I did for how I am planning to color this comic project thing, what do y'all think?
I hope I'm uploading it right.


The Imagination Station....

Is anybody going to enter sketch pages for the Society of Illustrators competition? I'm trying to pick something cool out but most of my stuff are scribbles.
In case you guys don't know, the Society is having a student sketchbook page competition. Our department can only choose 20 illustrations so if you want a page of yours to be considered turn it in to Molly. Eat your heart out Drew :)

Outtie 5000 y'all

AltPick Competition

I entered this past quarterly competition for AltPick. If any of you are interested in seeing some great professional and student work from all over the country(you can register for free if you aren't already) you can view all the entries. There are a lot of different catagories, whether you're into animation, photography, digital, or traditional illustration. I think some of it kind of crosses into the draphic design realm, but oh well.

Oh, and one more thing...People need to start writing and posting on here! Seriously people. This is a blog, not a funeral!
