Me-ya Maya

video
Three things.
1)If any one out there has every dappled in Maya, you probably understand why this short clip is so special to me.
2)If you HAVEN'T ever worked with the program, consider yourself lucky.
3) If you're considering trying Maya and you aren't a naturally patient person. don't.

Ender's Game


This is a painting I did for my internship the summer of 2010. David Gaadt instructed me to recreate a cover for the book "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card (which Gaadt had actually done originally.) I was, of course, honored and may be a little apprehensive at first about trying to accomplish a version that met his standard but I feel this may be one of my favorite pieces I have done for a cover. Oh, and the colors from the scan are much more muddy than the original BUT here it is any way

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

My thesis depicts current Philadelphia Phillies players. Looking at the recent baseball cards by Topps made me realize how magical the cards of the past were and how sentimental these little collections were to some. What I wanted out of my illustrations was to link the disconnect from the past to the present and give that nostalgic feeling to those who so charished these cards when they were younger as well as appeal to the present generation. The poses are synonymous to the great baseball players of the past. These rockstars of the day include Bob Feller and Mickey Mantel, just to name a few. For inspiration I looked to Kadir Nelson the beautiful way he handles fabric as well as Gil Elvgren for essence of the time era and color. As for my biggest inspiration of all, I left that up to baseball itself. I hope that you get that feeling of being at the game, routing for your team, and enjoying the thrill of the great American pastime.

Snooki


This obviously has nothing to do with my thesis. Almost done... going to paint a pickle textile with hot pink background and finish some other things. I'm sending this to the Princess of the Jersey Shore herself.
