In one of my illustration classes we are learning about and making different kinds of illustration- such as editorial illustration. This is my first attempt at such a thing really. We had to pick an article out of a stack of magazines to illustrate. I picked an article in the National Geographic about a Siberian medical train.
For my Illustration class us right-handers had to draw with our left hand really quick, and produced all these scribbles which we threw into a pile. We then had to pick 3 that weren’t our own, and combine them into one illustration. I made this… a dragon disguised as a flower? Is he about to eat that butterfly, or just have a happy moment? Hmmm….. But, for some reason, his name is Frederick and I love him.
This is a watercolor illustration I did the last part of last semester for my Alternative Mediums class. I love dragons… and this is a city dragon/dragon city? In space?
He is a character that I thought of a few years ago, and who has made a few appearances in my art since then. I love him, and I’ve always been surprised by the almost affection people have shown him.
I have plans for after graduation this summer. One of them is a webcomic for Edwin. I have fought with ideas of stories and books, but the comic idea is the current favorite, and where it seems that I want to start.
I think Edwin is something significant. I wonder what he’ll be up to next.
Here is a finished project and a sketchbook assignment for my Color Theory class.
I seem to love dragons lately. I made 3 separate little paintings in “frames,” then attached them to my “wall” with tape.
And sometimes it seems I watch and know more Korean celebrities than my own countries’. Hey, I love Asian film.
I saw an opportunity to draw something from Harry Potter, so I took it. We had to do a monochromatic still-life in watercolor. It was nice timing: Fall is coming, which equals Halloween, which equals the general season in which I love to watch Harry Potter.
… for my Color Theory class. I drew Pip, a lil character that I like to draw once in a while. He’s always wanted to taste coffee.
Done with ink pens and watercolor.
