Goodbye 2007.

This is from a little sketch I did in my notebook. I thought they looked like a fun bunch of guys to be hanging out with on New Year's. Here's hopin' to 2008 being full of those good kind of surprises, as opposed to that other kind we got a bunch of this year.

reindeer and ham

They're not new, but they aren't old either. Hope you enjoy. I'm off to Indiana.

Some light photography we were messing around with at the beach. iPods and cell phones unite!

the taxi cab

Some characters I've been working on from my sketchbook. This break is for catching up on all the stuff I wanted to do this semester and couldn't because of homework and projects.

cheese updates

Blogger is being silly and not letting me update with stuff, so I just wanted to drop a line to let ya know I'm alive. I'm going to upload my recent work/finals onto Ben's site, and embed them here, so high five all around.

3 days til break. omgomgomg.

kinetic typography

Here's a link to my kinetic typography exercise from digital video. (It's linked from youtube.) The sound clip is from the movie "Road Trip" when they're heading back to the school and one of them is trying to cram for a big exam.

Here's the actual link, too.

more postcards

I'm popping one of these in each plushie bag I sell at MegaCon this year. I think I might make a set of six. I'm also going to HAVE to make a rhino plush soon, because he is just too cute.

Today was a good day. I am finally really excited about 'the real world' and not just like 'its gonna be pretty cool to be able to paint my walls...'

High fives all around!

A bunny postcard just to say hello!

I thought I would put a few variations of these in the bags for the plushies at MegaCon. (I'm SO excited about it, I could probably burst.) Also, I'm working on some keychain monsters right now, so those are pretty sweet. I'm test-driving a mini-goobert at the moment on my own bag, he's so cute.

friends for friends

Some of my more recent commissions- Maya Gremlin for Cat, Loch Nessy for Arrolynn, Pedro for Sarah C, and Lucas for Erin (technically her madre.)
In digital video we're doing kinetic typography, so I'll post my short when I finish it Wednesday. (The clip is from Road Trip, if anybody has seen it.) I really like doing them, so I might do another soon- maybe something a bit longer, since this one is only 13 seconds. Also working on a new opening sequence to CONGO, so that should be pretty fun. I love that goofy movie so much- Tim Curry is amazing.

happy halloween!

Here's some of my favorite pumpkins I've found online (I'd show mine, but I donated it to the Hallow Halls thing for the kids, and it got smashed on Sunday. But it was awesome, a little bear with a glowing heart.) Other than that, I hope everyone enjoys their halloween celebrations- I'll be out dressed as George Washington! (Ben's going as honest Abe.)

super plush update, woot.

Business card/"freebie ads" in progress.

Just some recent plushies I made. From top to bottom: Espresso the bear, Nooni the neon cat, Olaf the cyclops, and Raspberry the bunny. I'm also working on some commissions at the moment for friends- a sea creature a la` Loch Ness for Arrolynn, a fat black housecat for Erin, and a Maya gremlin for Cat (she needed something to physically hate whilst rendering.)
I finished the gremlin today, so pictures of him soon. I'm also supposed to see about a possible commission for Sandra tonight, too, so that's very exciting. Oh, and I'll be opening up my Etsy store soon, for non-Ringling-based folk, and for when I move after this year. I'll post the link when I have that up and running (have to upgrade my paypal, etc.)

southwest project

I chose to re-design all the employee uniforms (male and female) and then the cabin seating. I'm not sure I'm totally sold on the seats... I'll see what everyone else thinks in crit, I guess. The project presentation is Thursday, and we're in pretty good shape for that. After that it's Time Life books, so that's pretty exciting. Hopefully I get something I won't end up hating by the end.

new work soon

Here's half of my part of the Southwest rebranding so far. Might shoot my lino block print later, it's pretty okay.

Updated! We went out on a plush photoshoot around campus, and took some much better photos of my plushies. Here are the fruits of said labor.
*If you're interested in adopting one of my plush pals ($10) just leave me a comment with which one you like. I also do commissions. :)

mini sketchbook dump

Some recent sketchbook pages..made out of a dummy book from Patricks bookmaking class last semester.

Oh yeah, and we're still working on Southwest...
