Paper Doll Group 2.

Here's my second group of paper dolls for Lifestyles, based on three more "street fashion" outfits that can be seen here, here, and here. I was going for spring oriented clothing- hopefully they fit the bill!

Another thesis piece has been completed! This is an editorial for the episode of This American Life titled "Frenemies", which deals with the issues of friends who actually aren't all that great of friends at all- with stories about estranged siblings, broken friendships, and people who look out more for themselves then their "allies". I struggled with this piece- initially it was supposed to be done in gouache but after having some issues using it in this piece I ended up having to scrap it and restart it digitally. It was a lot of work to do but I'm satisfied with my result.

Paper Doll Group 1.

My first group of paper dolls for Lifestyles, based on three "street fashion" outfits that can be seen here, here, and here. They're all dressed and ready to take on a brisk fall day, don't you agree?

So far senior year has been really tough, but I'm happy with most of the pieces I am making, so that's positive! I basically live in my senior studio now and have turned it into my own personal art nest... Expect updates soon with photos of my new home away from home!

Paper Dolls.

In my Lifestyles class with Dan Krall we had to make paper dolls that we will dress in "street fashion" outfits or clothing we find from runway shows. These are the bases I drew, which will be clothed in the coming weeks.

In Dog We Trust.

Well my plan of posting a few things before the summer ended failed miserably! My final year at MICA has begun and now I'm starting to put together my thesis. For my first semester I am doing editorial illustrations based on episodes of This American Life, an NPR radio program. For this my first assignment I tackled "In Dog We Trust", which has stories of how pets affect our lives and how they become an influential part of our families- so I ended up drawing two women worshiping a corgi that is sitting atop a mountain of dog treats.
