"Ouzo the Clown"

There are two explanations for this piece. The first would be that after a lifetime of children's birthday parties and faded dreams, Ouzo the Clown has given up on life. He was raised to be a great performer, but now only has the delusional dreams of a drunkard to keep him company in the back alleys of Jersey. He will never know the taste of fame or fortune...only the taste of cheap booze...and failure.

A simpler explanation would be that I had to illustrate the word "Delusion" for styles and concepts class and I wanted to experiment with a different way of doing a thought bubble.

Hopefully, this piece is a sign of things to come. I actually limited myself to a color scheme (something I really need to put more effort into) and attempted an interesting lighting situation. I might like it. Perhaps you will too.

Realistic Threats for Any Urban Environment

In design class, we needed to create a series of symbols for some subject. After a while of sketching, I decided to base mine around the age old relationship between gigantic monsters and the cities they love to destroy. So here they are doing what they do best...destroying junk. And so I present to you: Realistic threats for any urban environment.

Stack a bear

This is my image for the second week of "Sketch to Death." The words were "Two" and "Umbrella" and the rest is history.

Well, as you (the three people that check this blog with any regularity) can see, this thing hasn't been getting many updates lately. There are a few ways to solve this problem, but it's really hard for a college student to get an intern so here's how this is gonna go:

1. The blog will no longer be reserved for final pieces of work. I think it would be a good idea to start posting works in progress so you can see how these things come together. And if you're excited about this due to a sick love of sketches, may I suggest...
2. A NEW BLOG?!?! Yes a new blog called (for now) Sketch to Death which is reserved for weekly sketching. It is comprised of (for now) five friends from CCAD who will draw two words out of a fishbowl every sunday and by the end of the week, must complete a sketch around these words.

Hopefully, I'll be getting some images up here very soon and with more regularity...

...and if not, this post will be a constant reminder of how easy it is to lie on the internet.
