Catcher in the Rye
The Picture of Dorian Grey
Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde
Ok. The time I've been waiting for for four years finally arrived! This Thursday was the opening of our senior illustration show. I must say it was a big success and a great showing of a variety of works. Now it's time to move on to the real world and put my skills to use. These paintings are all roughly 24x31 oils on masonite. I decided to do illustrations based on classical literature because I felt the subject was rich in imagery and substance. It was nice to paint so much and fairly big. It was also nice to have a consistent style and one that I enjoyed immensely. The process was long and tedious but seeing the final products up on the wall made all the hard work worth it. I would like to thank all my amazing peers here at school for providing infinite inspiration to me, you guys are truly amazing and I wish you the best from the bottom of my heart. To everyone else thank you for visiting my blog and I truly hope you enjoy these works! Please feel free to drop me a comment. Prints are definitely available for purchase. I DID IT!!!

Like I said in a previous post, I've been drawing in my sketchbook like a mad man. I don't know where this is all coming from or what's inspiring me do draw this much, especially in a time like this when i should probably be working on other stuff. I guess I just need a release from everything going on right now, like trying to find a job and getting thesis ready. This style is fun and it allows me to design as well as draw and I'm enjoying myself. Anyways I hope you guys like these and drop a line if you feel like it.

Hey this was a lot of fun!! I actually started with a more realistic and rendered drawing, but decided that sucked and that I needed to stylize the piece. I'm pretty happy with the results and I think the illustrator element really adds something to the design. Let me know what you guys think, feedback is always appreciated.

Ok, so I took a break from the portrait series but I still had fun with this one. Mucha was a big inspiration for the type of woman I chose. This is pretty simple but I liked the drawing so I wanted to keep it as much as possible. Check out the story behind this piece at Blogarians, it's a heart breaker. Anyways, I hope you guys like it and feel free to drop me a line.
Ok so heres a version without the diagram. I also darkened the background and added a pattern. Let me know what you guys think. I personally will probably still go for the one with the diagram, but thats just me.
