I seem to be incapable of making a pencil drawing look decent once in my computer...Here is a drawing of my best friend's rabbit, Mr. Leeroy Bun. I feel so fortunate to have so many interesting and talented people in my life. Nothing says "I love you" like beautiful handmade gifties. <3

I've been trying to get back into the swing of things with my art. I'm working on a few pieces at the moment, but they are for Christmas gifties, so I won't be able to post anything about them until after the holidays.

A very dear friend of mine passed away this night, October 20th, after a long illness. I started this portrait of him a few weeks ago, when I honestly thought the grief would keep me from painting at all.

Ok. I haven't gone any further with my painting. I'm in the process of coming up with my contract for another independent study for the fall, so hopefully I'll be on the right track soon. In the meantime, here is a pencil sketch of my friend, G.

As promised, something new. This was done for the illustration portion of my portfolio (which needs a lot of work). It's watercolor on paper, with an overlay of Prismacolor pencils. It didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped, but overall, I'm happy with the outcome. And of course, there were lessons learned along the way.

I've been very busy with my summer independent studies, so I have to apologize for all the old work I'm posting. I promise to start posting new works soon. =D

These are a couple of years old, back from when I first began working on painted portraits. I was still using acrylic at the time, and now that I've picked up working with oils, I don't know how I ever pulled these off. Acrylic just dries too fast!

Two illustrations for use on a rack card mock-up. These were hand-drawn in very basic shapes then scanned into Adobe Illustrator to be sectioned into pieces. These pieces were then copied over to Adobe Photoshop, where I airbrushed in all the color and detail.
To start with, here are a few older drawings that were done while taking an Illustration class a couple of years ago. They were all completed using Prismacolor markers on marker paper with an overlay of Prismacolor pencil.
