Andy 2.0

This is the final vectorized version of Andy McMahon done in Adobe Illustrator CS5. Interestingly enough, I like some aspects of this one better and some aspects of the other one better...but overall I'm very pleased with this project in both formats.

"All The World's A Cage...

...and we are animals pounding at the glass."

I chose to do this quote from an ETID song for my final in John Jay's figure drawing class this past semester. This piece was done in gouache, acrylic, and coloured pencil on a black gessoed piece of arche's cold-press watercolour paper. Probably one of my favorites to date. I had a lot of fun doing it and enjoyed letting myself experiment.

Check me out at Drawgasmic 2010!

This piece will be on exhibition and for sale during the one day only Drawgasmic bonanza, with about 400+ other artists worldwide including professionals, students, and everyone in between. I am promoting as best as I can... he, he, he. I am quite excited! This is my first art show, ever. I never had the opportunity to be part of an art show in high school (we didn't have any exhibitions, ever) and I didn't make it into the FIT Illustration House thing, so this is really exciting for me.

The piece, entitled "If I Only Had the Paint, the Paper, ...the Courage" is very personal to me, and is about how I have all these ideas floating around in my head, but I doubt myself and beat myself up instead of just putting the paintbrush to the paper. Even with this exhibition, which was open-themed, I had trouble coming up with what to do... so I decided to get my frustration out by painting it.

Blah blah blah please support me and my fellow artists! :)

Owl City & Lights

Lights/Owl City at Terminal 5 NYC on Apr. 24th 2010. More pictures to come... these two just really stood out to me. :o)

Golden Girls

Okay, so my "job" is to drive this old man named Ted to visit his wife in the nursing home (who has Alzheimer's) for 15$ an hour. Ted is 93, but incredibly spritely and rather amazing... I feel guilty for receiving payment, he's like a second grandfather to me... and uh. These are some of the incredible treasures I encounter at Greenwood House. And yes, that second one... she really says that. Often.

I can't wait to have my scanner back and scan in some of the better sketches I did over break. I didn't do as much art as I would've liked to.... but c'est la vie. I was too busy playing photographer! And I had so much fun. Needless to say, I've had my break, I'm ready to get back to FIT and do some art!

Fun for children of all ages! My product ad done for my Adobe Illustrator class. Probably my favorite project from that class. More Illustrator projects to be posted soon. Enjoy :)

Passion Pittttt

Lately I've been sticking my fingers into about as many pies as possible. Most recently I've been playing photographer and messing with my new DSLR, a Canon Rebel XS. Nothing superfancy, but probably one of the smarter investments I've made in my lifetime... it was my Christmas present even though I paid for more than half of it, but I don't mind. I guess I have expensive taste. Anyway, I went to see Passion Pit at Terminal 5 in NYC on Jan. 9th with my friend Jessica and I snuck my camera in with me. The security guards threatened to throw me out because I didn't have a "permit"... you know, since my camera is fancy. But I'm rather stubborn. So I used it anyway.

(Terminal Five had the most fabulous breath-taking light show I have EVER witnessed.)

There are many more of these but that's an awful lot to focus on and upload and for you viewers to click and such so i just figured I'd give you a little taste. (:

I like playing photographer. I like Passion Pit. I like Terminal Five. I like you, too.
