Figure work

I've been horrible in updating this. For the longest time I've been wanting to put my old artwork up here to show what I was doing before, but it's all formatted 4 by 6 with black borders and I need to crop them. They'll be up eventually. This new spring semester is promising! My classes are all benefiting me in one way or the other, and history of illustration reminds me of ap art history with lutness (but not as fun necessarily). I feel overly prepared for Intro to Illustration...I have to take it to graduate eventhough I've been taking Illustration 1 last semester and this semester lol. Greenberg shows us different contemporary illustrators like Marcos Chin, Sam Weber and Anita Kunz and asks who's familiar with their work. Barely any of the freshman raise their hands but I guess thats how it is at first. Familiarizing yourself comes later.

Here's some figure work to tide you people over. I think I work best with vine charcoal which is funny because everyone hated it in high school and preferred charcoal pencils. I was so ignant.




















P.S. I hate it when people look at your sketchbook, give it back with a half smile and say nothing. WHAT IS THAT?
