It’s over!

Well there were no stickers. That’s okay.. they’ll be there for the end reception at least. The show was great, lots and lots of people. Nobody I invited bothered to come which was a little disappointing and our Grad Portfolio teacher didn’t show either.. or if he did it was a half hour before the show ended. Actually none of the Illustration faculty was there, except for the Chair, whom was a little late. But at least he was -there-.

But yes. Big turn out, everyone’s work looked amazing in the gallery and I got dressed up and had one hell of a time. It was really fun to talk to everyone and mingle. I don’t get out to social functions very often so I really enjoyed myself. We went out for dinner afterwards, and that was a little awkward. My sister doesn’t really fit in with my friends so.. she was kind of distant.. but other than that – great night!

I may take pictures of the gallery later and post them, but for now I’m exhausted.



Well it’s the big day today! The day of the grad show! And guess what…?

I didn’t get enough sleep. Not nearly enough. I was up late penning an invoice sample for my prof and I have a critique in an hour at a cafe. Least I can get breakfast there. Bleh..

I really hope tonight goes smoothly though.  And I pray I find a box of stickers in my PO box this morning.

Also I sketched up this image to be on my portfolio box and on my pedestal at the show. I loves it so. I was doodling something similar in Psych the other day.

He’s so confused about what’s going on.. while the bird FEASTS. Also it matches the setup of my stickers. ❤

It is far too early..

I barely slept. 4 hours.. tops. Nightmares coupled with stomach pain and restlessness contributed to a shitty night. Tonight is the opening of the Student show, I’ve got the night off from work, so I guess I’m gonna go. I hope Josh wins something. Hell if I win something it’d be killer for my resume.

I bought the domain by the way. Nothing really up yet.

It’s still pretty exciting. Let’s see.. my letterhead is designed.. I asked for the help of a few GD majors at school and they took a look.. I made some changes to the type but it’s looking good. Web class in an hour, so I’ll at least be getting more work done on the site. Flash is such a bitch. I sketched some lab guy with gloves and two halves of saw-scissors in his hands. I’ll post him later when I have some time.

Now, it is time for breakfast.

And so we begin…

Well, in an effort to get things rolling with the webdesign, I thought I could at least get my blog up and running. The main site is still in the works but I should get all the coding done within the next few weeks, definitely before the grad show at the end of April. This blog will be where I post some of my projects I’m currently working on, including developmental stages and napkin drawings. As far as things lately..

 I ordered 250 stickers off of, I don’t have the design saved as a .jpeg yet but when I get around to it, I’ll post it here.

Had a critique this morning on Junker, my newest illustration for Grad Portfolio, it went swimmingly. Working on business card designs and finding a suitable portfolio case to display my work. Then I have to go through the hell of getting plexi for the show and hoping that all of my work prints on time.

In other news, here are some really lame in progress bits of my new guy, Stumples. Stumples, WIP 2

Stumples WIP 4

So stage one is pretty basic, and moving on I’m adding more depth and wotnot, and of course at the request of John M., more maggots.. “as if he were choking on them”. Gorgeous.

I want to finish him up and get to work on a revision of the Caterbeast, who is also featured on my stickers.

So much to do so little time to do it, guess I’ll just relax during the rest of my ridiculous shift at the campus bookstore and try to sort out how I’m going to afford all of this printing.
