'Appy 'Alloween

This was a lil in-class assignment where we were given four columns of partial horror movie titles and asked to put one from each column together and make an illustration around it before class ended. So here is "Attack of the overflowing toilet from beyond outer space the musical."

What clogged the toilet? HUMAN FLESH!
But in all seriousness...there really isn't enough of the musical element in this.

Luck of the Cricket

For our professional practices class, we were each given a superstition to create an illustration around. Mine was "a cricket in the house means good luck." Originally the cricket was sitting on the mantel next to a portrait of a lucky family. My teacher suggested that the cricket should be the one who owns the house and have the wall covered in images of his lucky family. So here it is, looking like something out of a bug infested Wes Anderson movie.

We then took the images and designed them into a deck of cards and created a box with type to put them in. Mine was based off a cigar box to go with the wood in the picture frames and fireplace...not to mention the cricket is smoking a stogie.

"Let em hear ya in the produce section!"

So my first semester of senior year is half over but you'd never know it judging by the amount of final products that have shown their faces on here (I think we're at a grand total of one line drawing). There are actually four finished pieces sitting on my desk right now...
but the endless onslaught of work (and this pesky sleeping thing I keep doing) manages to keep them from getting scanned, touched up and posted. Rest assured that they will show up soon along with some 3-D work, sketches and maybe even some new branding (this blog could use a facelift). So check back soon, the posts should keep on chuggin in.
