the love of my life

February 10, 2010

i really enjoy the company of my cat, stormy. he’s a 3-year-old scottish fold and comes equipped with the most utterly vacuous expressions on his little face. this crosshatching is based on a photo i snapped of him while he was nestled atop my chest.


paint by number

February 10, 2010

i’ve always been enamored with paint by number kits, and wanted to create one of my own. this was so fun to do, and is left open to interpretation as to which colors should be used in the color key.

self portraits (college)

February 10, 2010

let’s just indulge my vanity for a moment, shall we?

these are some self portraits done during my college years. a few painted ones (i’d say only the yellow/maroon one bears a resemblance), 2 line drawings and 1 ink drawing.

self renderings

February 10, 2010

a selection of self-portraits from high school (not my best years, admittedly). 1 technical pen stippling portrait (took for-e-ver), 1 linoelum block 3-color print (where i narrowly missed slicing my hand apart), and 1 doodle from my portfolio cover.
