h2o plein air

so the last few days i have been trying to start the summer projects up. i took my set of h20color paints and paper with me. first i took the opportunity to goto the beach and relax with friends in santa cruz on the 26th of may.

below is a painting of of beach houses and was my 2nd attempt.
next is my last attempt in santa cruz. the light house as some of you may have seen. i was just having fun with the colors and found that the sand made for some really cool texture. most important was that you can brush it off after and it will act like a mask. look at the section around the lighthouse and you can see the mask effect.
and this one was done today, the 29th of may. it is overlooking south fremont. i passed it on the freeway and always wondered what the view was like from there

another belated post. this is from fall 2007. at the conclusion of barron storey's illustration class we had to create a zine. this is my spread from it. the topic was truth/lies. i put a lot of work, emotion, and heart into this piece. i also like purple.

belated maquette

so here is a belated maquette that i made last summer. it was lots of fun but i was not thinking when i made it. i had no drawings to work off of so it was on the fly. i had a lot of reference for it but there was no turn around i drew for it which would have made it easier and quicker to make. but it was for fun and got me playing with the medium more.

here is my character design for my vis dev class. i dont have strong aspirations to be a character designer however i did enjoy this assignment. the character's name is ben, he is slightly mentally ill with polks disease. he is a locksmith-in-training and will end up in a halfway house rather than becoming a full on locksmith.
