A coworker hired me to create a portrait of her hockey-crazed son. The first attempt didn't turn out, apparently it wasn't the best photo to work from. I wasn't sure how I was going to color this; I wanted to ink it, but I didn't trust my markers to last through coloring the large spaces. I ended up using pastel pencils for the background graphic. She was very excited about this, I got paid, and everyone went home happy.
This is me, modeling my very favorite hoodie. I bought the plain orange garment at Target, and airbrushed the koi and lotus after being inspired by some sweet tattoo art. It is so nice being able to put custom. vibrant, one-of-a-kind images on my clothing!

Toy Study

My it has been a while. School has been eating my life, but now it's over and I can devote some time to sketching and creating again. Here is a study of a plastic Jinx the cat toy, courtesy of JohnK (see sidebar for link). Hopefully I didn't obliterate the underlying structure by over-detailing. Probably shouldn't have shaded but ehhh, I got caught up in the heat of the moment and couldn't stop myself. Hopefully john can find the time to give this a once over and some pointers.
