MUST BE SOME TOROS IN THE ATMOSPHERE.

I'm mildly embarrassed about that title, but I couldn't think of anything better.

Theseus and the Minotaur.


For my Illustration Concepts II class, we had to put a spin on an old myth or folk tale. This is Theseus as a matador, after conquering a massive minotaur. Obviously, Theseus is cool enough to get away with just a bloody nose, a mussed collar and a model-scowl. In my previous post, you can see a sketch for the other myth I was considering (human/cyborg Hermaphroditus).

In other news, the awesome Charm City Roller Girls and their art director, Katy Clark, are using my "Let Them Eat Skate" illustration for an upcoming poster. I'll upload the final poster after I see it at this weekend's bout, which I will be attending as a first-time viewer. Check out the Charm City Roller Girls website for more details and Flickr for some completely insane photos of the girls in action.

Lastly, two of my pieces were accepted by the Society of Illustrators Student Competition. The Interrobang group shot and the Virgin Suicides cover (second image) will be in the exhibition and catalog this year. This was my first time entering and I don't really know what to say about this, so I'll leave it alone for now, for fear of sounding like an idiot. Congratulations to everyone that got in (see: MICA peers; all institutions).
