Shadow Box

We had to recreate a book cover using cut paper in a shadow box. I chose The Great Gatsby.

My color professor put my Munny and my Shadow Box in the student open studio exhibit. My friend’s box is on the left. She is also amazing.


And then my perspective drawing teacher scanned and enlarged my drawing (middle) and hung it in the drawing room.20150424_181744e

I feel pretty good.

Color Theory – Munny

New semester = new projects!

This Semester I am in Color Theory and our first project was to create a character with a color theme and paint it onto this little guy. I chose a split complimentary of blue-violet, orange, and blue-green.DiverSketch

Another late principles post. We had to take a survey about a sense and we chose sound. Then we had to make a poster about it. I made the whole thing out of cut paper.

Final Painting

My final painting of the semester and probably ever.

I used the popsicles from my design principles project for the background.

Mark Making Tool

I’m finally posting a design project!  This was my first project in my design principles class.  We had to make a mark making device and a series of marks created form our marks. I went through 3 prototypes.

We had to bind our sketches in a book.  I didn’t have room on the tables for all the pages…

Painting Part 4

This was a collage painting, taking images from different paper sources and putting them together in a composition.

The next painting had to be a flattened portrait.  I don’t know if I really like it though because it looks just like the picture and why would you paint something you can just make in photoshop? My feelings about that are kind of mixed.20141028_184715e 20141030_185609e 20141104_184512e

And then I thought I was finished but realized I forgot the eyebrow… I couldn’t figure out why the face looked so blank.20141105_173112e
