I'm flinging these up here before I go off to work; they should be on the website by tonight.

These are patterns for my Artistic License final project. More later.


Into the Woods

Another finish from Cover to Cover, this one for A Midsummer Night's Dream.

I like this piece and I really loved doing the tree. It's an authentic olive tree, since the play takes place in Athens. They're really gorgeous, rugged things.

RISD's illustration portfolio review is in exactly one week, so I've been reworking my website and designing mailers and business cards. Pretty soon I may be a real, live grown up. Watch out.


Object Lesson

Just a little to show, from way back in the fall.

This is an articulated (gasp!) anteater, made from Super Sculpey. The limbs are attached with metal fabric snaps, which allows them to rotate on an axis. It's an interesting application and was sort of a stepping stone to these guys:

These are toys with interchangeable magnetic limbs. I like the shape and funtionality of these guys, but the paint gets me down. Luckily my final project for licensing (lasting for the next six weeks) will be expanding on this line with (at least?) four more animals. Look! Sketches!

I'll be redoing the kangaroo, anteater, polar bear (although he may become a panda), and giraffe. Opinions on the other creatures would be super appreciated. (The class had votes for the kiwi, the turtle, the iguana, and the hare, for the record.)
