End of Semester Five

Another half a year has come and gone and I felt it was time for some changes in appearance around here. I thought it to be a pretty relaxed semester, but I know some people worked really hard and others still are really starting to come into their own. Good job everyone. I'm gonna go drink myself through winter.

Hello Lulu

An illustration for a kid's book, Hello Lulu. The story is about a little girl and her family; my version takes place aboard a space station with Lulu as an experimental robot prototype. This is Lulu's teddy bear.

Another Bulbous Tree

I wanted to try to make this one a little more lively than the first. I'm not sure I like how all of it came out, but I feel I was onto something.

I was in the mood for putting up something more colorful. The only recent image I had was this paint doodle of a pyramid.

The Frying Pan again.

Savoring the last few weeks before it will be too cold at the piers to do anything without your fingers going numb.

Mr. Hyde Concepts

For Illustrator's Heritage, we're going to be creating a black and white linear illustration for either Dracula or the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I've picked the latter tale, and although I'm not really thinking in terms of setting yet, these are two sketches of Mr. Hyde. The top is a Kevin O'Neill influenced crazed zombie-ape-man type, while the bottom is a horrible scientific experiment gone wrong in the form of a featureless killing machine a-la McFarlane's Creech.

Has to do with something you I guess you had to be there for?

This stump is so tall, you wonder why they cut down part of it at all. Also, there is a fuse box or something on it with some outlets. Dunno why, or why they picked a tree.
Also, as of about a week ago, five pieces of mine are hanging up in a Starbucks in Westfield. It's not much, but I suppose it still counts as my first exhibition independent of a school. I didn't get anything good enough done to have any new work hanging up, but my mom was very adamant about actually betting if I'd get some real painting done before the end of the Summer, so there's still a chance I'll get something in color done before school's back on.

This morning I had to go into the city to drop off something for my sister. Waking up early and begrudgingly accepting the errand wasn't all bad; I got to run to the Museum of Natural History for a bit, which seemed monstrously crowded for a Monday afternoon. I had time for these sketches and a stroll before I had to return home (and before the crowds got to me). Yes children, people enjoy drawing. No parents, that is not a "Buffalo," it is a Musk Ox. It says so right there.
In other news, I was looking for straight razors in the basement and stumbled upon my grandfather's old Nikon F2, along with several zoom and macro lenses, a motor drive, three electronic flashes, a few filters, and a "Pocket Guide to Practical Photography." Considering I had foolishly forgotten he had even given it to me, it was quite a pleasant surprise, and I'm going to see if I can snap anything of worth with it.

On top is a boat in Montauk, I couldn't read the name, but I think it said "Jason & Danielle." The bottom is a rental sailboat from the Lavallette Yacht Club at the Jersey shore.

Things about town.

Hofheimer Grotto

One of my favorite sitting spots in my sleepy little town. It was created by Nathan Hofheimer, a very wealthy German investor. Hofheimer retired to the United States, purchased 350 acres of land in Warren, New Jersey, and built a copper mine. When it closed down, Nathan had a grotto built over the mine.

Frying Pan

This floating bar & grill made me realize that if you get enough people in one area, it's really, really loud.

Old doodles I never really found time for. Better late than never, I suppose.
