An image I owe a friend that I'm finally starting to work on. Digital sketch, more to come.

Silly Postcard

A silly postcard for my brother, and also a quick attempt at acrylics.

Another sketch!

I was trying to do a realistic portrait from imagination, and then just drew my hand instead. Unfinished thanks to horrible hand cramping and some lovely thunderstorms that utterly destroyed my light.

Sorry folks, I know I should be putting finished stuff up here, but it seems I am only capable of taking something halfway and then abandoning it. Who knew I needed deadlines so badly?

My return!

I feel like, having graduated, all that jazz, I should be updating with more than a sketch of my cat. Alas, this is all the people who read my blog shall recieve. All two of you.

more wips!

The last one I'm painting with oils, and now I'm rethinking I may have to repaint the other two.  The oils are so lovely on top of sculpy.  We'll see how it works out on top of acrylic.

Horror Lady

Another Work in Progress piece.  Doing those polka dots on her dress is going to be fun.

Maybe finished?

I don't know yet.  The top one is going to kill my printer, I'll probably have to lighten it up to get it to print right.  Setting these aside to go back to working on the sculptures.

The other mostly finished ones

There, 7 out of eleven, not including the cover (finished, but not posted) and Title page w/ title page spot.

Mostly finished illustrations!

An image from Chapter five and the chapter image from Chapter Six.  I need to make a proper book template and start to layout where the text would go, so people know how these work.  I think they are done, with some exceptions to the random grey spots which require more gibbering around with Photoshop.

Thesis Update, again!

The 3-d things I've been at work on.  And lost a tiny chunk of my knuckle to. 

The top one is plasticine, the bottom two are sculpy.

Thesis update!

Companion pieces to my sculpy figurines for commencement.   Not done, obviously, and I'm dumping the second one and redoing it utterly.  And I spent so long on those damned tiles.

Bwana Samaki, last chapter!

Last chapter, digital sketch.  End of chapter sketch, as opposed to the rest, because chapter 11 is really, really short.   

Bwana Samaki

Round two!  The book is, btw, Bwana Samaki by Stephanie Stuve-Bodeen, and not in print.

Bwana Samaki

Digital sketches, round one.  Don't mind the Lorem Ipsum text placement.  It's called, the book is unavailable, and it's easier to use placement text than to type it out.

A mockup for the wrap-around cover for Bwana Samaki, by Stephanie Stuve-Bodeen.

Don't worry, the bottom text will not be whatever it currently is.  It'll be handdone, similar to the top.
