She Sang Hymns out of Tune

For my illustration final we had to make an illustration based off of a song the instructor chose, and he chose "She Sang Hymns out of Tune" by Harry Nilsson.  You can listen to it here.  It's a sweet little song, but it's pretty melancholic to me.  I interpreted it to mean that this girl has passed away, and the one singing the song misses her.  Also if you give me an excuse to draw stars I will draw stars on everything.  That's just how I am.

Flashback Friday 03: You're Next Shift!!

For class we had to illustrate anthropomorphic animals, and so I took a beaver, a bear, and a wolf and put them in Hockey gear.  It's a concept I wouldn't mind re-doing sometime in a more stylized, cutesier style.  I think a children's book about a hockey playing beaver would be adorable.

Flashback Friday 01: Mid-Flight Fishing

This is a piece from my Sophomore year at CCAD, and we were prompted to do an illustration based on a prompt, and mine was "Blimp".  Here I have my thumbnails, sketch, refined sketch, and final.


For my Children's Illustration Market class we had to pick an animal and create a poster that had facts about the animal worked into the piece.  I chose the Serval Cat because they're absolutely beautiful.
