Claremont Plein air paintings

Spent yesterday with my professor Gary Geraths up in Claremont painting. Such a beautiful and peaceful place... We're practically next door neighbors, so we're already planing another painting trip!

Into the Illusion Forest...

From my thesis project! I'm doing visual development for a 3D animated film.

A story about a girl who wonders into a mysterious forest, only to have what she finds inside used to corrupt the people she loves.

Tigers, Lions, and llamas!

A couple weeks ago, I was invited to come and draw at the Wildlife Way Station! Used pen a bit of marker for most of these... This was my second time being there, and I hope to be able to go again in the future. Such an awesome and cool place!

Theater Designs!

I was given a decade to research, and create any project I wanted around it. I was given the 1920's, so I decided to create some designs for a broadway play, but with an Egyptian theme to reflect the King Tut craze that went on during the time! A fun project since I love Egyptian history!

Designed some column, seats, people, and even the over all atmosphere!

And my sketches

Lunch Hour

Wanted to try and make something 'happy'. I think the biggest thing I miss the most about my high school are the uniforms...

My First Big Emergency Kit Toy Design

A little toy design project I worked on with two other people based off of the "My First Doctor's Kit" by Fisher Price. Helped come up with what toys should be included, and made 3D models based off the concept drawings.

Spring Break paintings and what-not

A few things I was able to do in between doing homework during spring break. My dining room back at home, my room at my apartment, and my roommate Mindy sitting at her laptop like always.

Moleskin Adventures

A collection of environment and people life drawings from around my home, school, or wherever I happen to be at at the time; a sketchbook diary. My goal is to fill this whole Moleskin up by the end of the semester. I love the sizes of these things, they're just so convenient!
