Updates n Such

Well believe it or not I have quite a few things going on. I've been really lazy about updating so let me try to remember it all. I'll start off with this -

So this is one of my finished screen prints (my professor took the photo and for some reason decided it looked best with a warm saturation). This particular photo is going to be sent to a college in China (I'll update with the name and location) and printed, matted, framed, and hung there. This is for a sister city art exchange that my college participates in. The other good news about this particular print is that it won first in Graphics in the school art competition. So all and all I am pretty excited.

Also I did some design work for a local artist whom I really admire. Kim Laurenti who is really amazing. It is a little poster (her concept) of her sculptures she sells on Etsy called Mooks. Click the image for a link to her store to buy one!

Besides that I am going to be getting more of my figure work photographed and build a new portfolio. Also I am doing more Wacom tablet work.

This is kind of an experimental piece. I think I found some nice techniques for the modeling, but besides that I don't really know how I feel about this. The face looks odd to me.

I guess finally I will state that I will be attending Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota Florida in the fall. So I am gearing up for that. I am constantly looking at student work and there is so much talent there. It is going to be hard to compete.

Anyways, I'll try and update more. I wish I had more subscribers.
