Anyways, here is a grainy image of my most recent work. I'm calling it done-ish. It's amazing how your favorite parts of a piece will be the areas that are the least worked on. Not the areas where you slaved on and made you feel completely terrible about your life choices. I guess its not so weird.

Its just a peek at a new large painting for my independent study. I wanted to "play" with keeping things soft and maintaining a tighter value/color structure. It turns out that its not "play" at all. But I have a new friend to help me. Juliette Aristides just put out a follow up to her Classical Drawing Atelier that should be placed next to Andrew Loomis in terms of Bible-hood. The title of her most recent amazing-ness in print form is Classical Painting Atelier.

Here is a book cover assignment that I did for Pratt. He gave me some good crits on it so I've tweaked a few things and c'est ca. It's for A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. It's a good heartbreaking read that I recommend that everyone reads at least once in their life.

Here is an illustration that I've been working on for Pratt. It's a book cover for this story about a female Polish spy on this one Nazi officer. Its full of secret-y secrets and intrigue-y suspense. I worked in pastels and now I am forever and completely in love with them. If they were a person, I would marry them.
