White Russian.

So here's my last piece from Lifestyles, and in turn the last piece from my first semester as a Senior! I have another thesis piece done, but I was never fully satisfied with it so it's going to stay hidden in my computer.

The assignment was to take a cocktail of our choice and illustrate it (without involving the cocktail itself- think of it more as a creative interpretation to the name of the drink). I chose my favorite alcoholic beverage, the White Russian. So now we've got a lovely Russian lady (wearing a variation of this outfit) chilling out in the snowy tundra with some wolves. This piece originally was super flat and graphic (and one of a pair- we had to illustrate the ingredients as well, but I felt that piece wasn't up to snuff), but I ended up tweaking it so that it had some cool lighting and a real sense of mood.

So all in all, I am happy with how this semester went, though I was incredibly stressed since the first day of classes and worked myself incredibly hard (and harder then I think ended up being healthy...) but I feel like my portfolio has really solidified and I've found ways that I enjoy working!

Website! is now live! It will continue to be tweaked during Winter break, but I'm really happy with how it ended up looking!

May Calendar Page.

May! Springtime, flowers, and breezy weather- what's not to love? I had to do an illustration for a calendar page in Lifestyles and was assigned this fun month. It gave me a chance to do some detailed hand lettering as well, which was (as always) a pleasure. You can find the outfit I based this one off of right here!
