Old Wives' Tale zine

One of my finals was the make a zine about anything. I chose 10 different Old Wives' Tales (kind of like an urban legend or folkloric belief). Here are the better ones from the batch. I basically just have a peculiarly strong affinity for bellybands.

"If you knit your hair into a garment, it will bind the recipient to you."

"If your cheeks feel on fire, someone is talking about you."

"If a bird tries to come into your window, there will be a death in the family."

Empty pool (revised, now with a leaf!)

I've been chipping away at this for awhile, but I finally feel it's at a presentable stage. You can view the previous stage here.

All done in photoshop.
Blogger kind of messed up the color.

where i end and you begin

I was assigned to do an album cover for a specific song. Predictably I chose Radiohead. I'm having fun playing with the masking effects of duralar. . I think I'll use it more here shortly.

sketch deuce

These were fun. I tried to have a every aspect shared between the pages, sort of like opposites.

Four page comic: Urban Golem

So I used the same theme for two of my finals. For narrative we were assigned a four page comic. It was hard condensing this into four pages, so the storyline seems kind of unclear and rushed. But I had fun doing it. My goal was to just keep the pencil moving and not to over render it, which I'm happy that I stuck to.

I wanted to use a style similar to how I draw my thumbnails. Quick and sticking to relatively few, flat tones.

side note: I'm not a fan of destorying historic buildings, I just had to come up with something to tie it together -.-
