Exhibit

Some of my artwork is currently hanging on the walls at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, NY. Design director Diane Teglassia-Hymes did a great job setting up the display... it's pretty cool to see my art on the walls like this!

Birds!

I figured it was time I got around to posting more of the art I did for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology! This isn't everything, but it's a good sample of the work I did while I was there.

Match Trick

I made a gif! Exciting! I'm currently having a lot of Lawrence of Arabia feelings. Sometimes stories/characters hit me like a freight train and I just have to draw it out of my system. Like, literally draw.

Inktober Camel

I went to New York Comic Con last Thursday and it was awesome! I got to watch Juanjo Guarnido draw and ink Blacksad, so that was amazing. And I got to meet --and make a fool of myself in front of-- most of my favorite comic book illustrators (particularly Francis Manapul and Cliff Chiang). Overall it was a very, very great experience. I look forward to going again next year :)



I got home and immediately wanted to try inking something again. The previous weekend I went to the Bronx Zoo and fell a little bit in love with the camels, which are delightfully weird animals. So between that and a recent viewing of Lawrence of Arabia (don't even get me started on gloriousness of the Blu Ray), this happened.

Inktober

There's an October inking challenge over on Twitter and I thought I'd try it. I've never really worked in ink before (only experimented with it a couple of times for class in college, but I don't really count that), so it was... kind of horrifying. I ended up tweaking it a bit and adding shading in Photoshop, but still... it wasn't awful!! The drawing is sort of based on a silly movie I watched this afternoon called How to Steal a Million starring Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole (because I enjoy looking at beautiful people).

Gotham Academy

Today's Sketch Dailies. I'm feeling really burnt out lately, I've got too many projects going on at once. It was nice to just take a short break this afternoon to draw something for fun... recharge my batteries a little bit. I shouldn't complain about having too much work... that's a good problem to have!



Also, I thought I'd share this from the other day. Took a 5 minute break and quickly sketched Lawrence and Ali (and a camel) from Lawrence of Arabia, which I've decided is my favorite film. I can't think of a more perfectly acted, engrossing character study. It also has one of the greatest scripts ever written and might be the most beautiful film ever made. Anyway, I was pretty happy with how these likenesses came out, considering I drew them so quickly.

Poison Ivy

A belated sketch dailies... a redesign of Batman villain Poison Ivy. I've had no time to draw for myself lately, so this was a good break.
