Sketches from Class!

When I was working from home I never seemed to have the time to just sketch. Now that I'm back in school, there are times when I am sitting and listening to a presenter and I can just draw and listen. It's really kind of nice. Here are 2 things I drew the other day.

Family Portrait 2011
Family Portrait 2011
The family portrait was really late this year, but Candace forgave me (it is a present to her) because I was applying for grad schools at the time I normally give it to her. This one came about because I knew Candace would dig the Harry Potter theme and Eva was pretending to be a witch quite a bit.

White Panda Tee
The White Panda Tee
I recently did this t-shirt design for the band/duo "The White Panda". They were awesome to work with and they have a great image/motif.

I have an MFA blog!

I just started my MFA at Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD)! The first week was very exciting and I'm looking forward to the whole 2 years. Columbus has been a great place to live so far and I can't wait to judge it in winter.

Each MFA student is expected to keep a blog of their progress while working on their projects. Mine is a graphic novel, so I'll be putting a lot of character designs and sample pages but probably not the whole actual comic.
