BROCK SAMSON AND DOROTHY PARKER.

How I Roll.


This was a quick picture that I snapped while working on my most recent Narrative Illustration assignment. I had to illustrate a Dorothy Parker poem and I really liked how it was going. I needed to take a photo before something went horribly wrong. Surprisingly, the end piece turned out all right. Maybe I'll post it later. Oh, and you all should check out my Narrative Illustration professor's blog. His name is Daniel Krall and he says really weird but strangely constructive things during critiques. Good stuff.

Anyway... You probably can't tell from the picture, but I usually work sitting on my bed, with Internet at the ready and some sort of DVD playing at the same time. In this case, it's Venture Bros. Season Two (new season this Summer! Glee!) Obviously, I'm more comfortable when I'm not focusing on one thing at a time.

GOTHS AND JAFFA CAKES.

Things have been crazy and exhausting since I last updated. Assignments and work have been pouring in (Christ, it's like I'm in school or something), I made an epic journey to NYC and did a little dirty dancing with my favorite faux pundit (please note I left out all the best parts), and I am finding myself in an incredible area of uncertainty, both in my professional and personal life (MY BRAIN! MY SOUL!). Thank goodness Spring Break is here. I should also note that all of my sketchbook people have been becoming increasingly sleepy-eyed. A reflection on my real life fatigue? Probably. Okay, enough talky talk, because I have pictures:

Seventeen.


That's a drawing I did in my sketchbook to practice with pen and ink. Mmm, sinister goths.

Postcard.


There was some special deal going on at Overnight Prints, so I made this drawing to turn into a postcard. The original is in my sketchbook, but the text was added in Photoshop. The bile yellow background is actually a very lovely green on paper.

Oh, and my mother mailed me five boxes of Jaffa Cakes to help me power through the rest of my work. Awesome.
