Tic Tac Attac

"Microscopic Placebos" is this week's drawing challenge. This is an image that sprung to mind. I didn't really know what to think of the challenge topic, so I didn't.

The Belittled

I finally learned how to upload my film! This is my third year film at CalArts, entitled "The Belittled." It's about an oblivious photographer who finds himself in a surreal landscape. Ed Juan stepped up to the plate to help me finish this before the Open Show deadline when I was ready to give up (I was working on it with no sleep for two days straight without food or rest, and ran into countless technical issues). So I'm forever grateful for that. Thanks Ed!

Out of the Box

This one of a few illustrations I did to a poem I wrote. I will let you know when it's out.

Chick 'n' Run

Not too long ago, I decided I wanted to be a storyboard artist. Something told me that I should do lots of random drawings, and never bother putting anything to actual storyboards. Then a little cricket told me that this logic is flawed, and I killed him.

This is a storyboard assignment Austin and I came up for each other: "Turn this cliche into something interesting: The Hunter Becomes the Hunted."

More Deformed Sorcerers

What started as something to motivate me to draw every week has garnered some interest among friends! Check out Rob Thompson's blog for his sorcerers.

We're just expanding on the same theme this week, this time exploring things we wouldn't think of off-hand, like unusual shapes and concepts. I try to incorporate some stories in these little drawings, but I think I can push it more. Right now, the "stories" are more evident in the characters' personalities (mostly by their facial expressions), but I will look to putting them in situations and better illustrate who they are by what they do.
