Dave makes posters

Here are two posters I did for different classes. The first one is a self promotion piece that would be sold out of Juxtapoz magazine. I have no idea what the image is supposed to mean but I like to think it sums up my work pretty well.
The second one is a poster for going green. I wanted to combine the ideas of carpooling and bike riding as easy ways to make your morning commute more eco-friendly. All this poster really taught me was how much I hate going green advertising and how difficult it is to do it without literally coloring something green.

I'm pretty glad to finally be getting some non-sketch work on here. Only three weeks left in the school year so a surge of stuff should find itself on here soon.

Crustacean of the Opera

Another sketch-to-death assignment. This week's words were "crab" and "mask."

There's a bunch of these things that I haven't actually posted on this blog, so I may take the time to do one massive recap post sometime soon. Also, the end of the school year is coming up pretty soon and then I'll have the time to put up actual projects.

"The Downfall of El Manlymanstan"

Another week, another sketch-to-death assignment. This week's words were "burliness" and "Optometrist."

Nothing mentally breaks a big, burly dude like nerd accessories. When he goes to the orthodontist next week, he'll be nothing more than a puddle of nancy-ness. Never again will he grace the halls of 'The Really Quite Manly Federation of Really Quite Manly Men Wrestler Men.'
