117B: Advanced Visual Development

Our final Advanced Visual Development Project was to create inspirational story beats for a short story from a list of authors.  I chose Ray Bradbury's "The Toynbee Convector"!  Great read!  Special thanks to John and Kevin for being models!

Distance Learning Program with Nathan Fox!

Hi! Last month I finished working on a comic I did for a Distance Learning Program with Nathan Fox! We had to make a 4+ page comic with a limited palette and "mystery" and "discovery" themes surrounding a possession of an unspecified "Stormy Dorris."

Here it is! It's a bit sad, but that's where your imagination comes in :-)

#Inktober day 2! "Chicken Noodle sOops" ������ I was really excited to discover another can of chicken noodle soup the other day, but the lid was stuck. And when it became unstuck it sprayed all across the room. And then I did not have much of a soup. This piece depicts that sad evening. #sketch #sketchbook #KuretakeInktober #pigmainktober #kuretake #pen #ink #drawibg #art #artist #instaart #instadaily #illustration #oops #life #daily #soup #doodle #chicken #October

5th Element Reboot Project

This week we finished our 5th Element Reboot Project!

We started with pages of sketches and ideations.  I painted a 5th Element guitar store.  Here are a few of my concept drawings:

We gathered reference, and mostly focused on a Moebius-styled scene:

And put it all together!:

I made a gif of my progress!:

I plan to fix this up more later, so I can include it in my portfolio!

Playlist: Jenny Lewis, Feist, Broken Bells, Doug Paisley, Weezer (new album! CourtesyTim!), Elizabeth & the Catapult, The Weather Station, Little Joy, Santana, Keane, Michael Johns
