Driving in Saudi Arabia

Beyond the Bricks

 

New illustration for the Reporter. The article is about women and their fight against the restrictions on women’s driving rights in Saudi Arabia. Looking ahead to a better future in which all women are allowed to drive, the girl in the illustration is saying goodbye to the past and moving on forward.

No Shave November

Anti-Beard Pro-Beard

 

 

Two illustrations for The Reporter Magazine, RIT’s school newspaper. Painted in Photoshop, 8″ x 7″. The top illustration is for an anti-no shave november article, and the bottom for an opposing pro-no shave november article. First time painting beards I think! (about time).

Finally finished, color was the most fun part! Anyways, it was fun to explore something different than what I’ve been doing as of late (mainly trying to get a good marriage of digital and traditional).

Animals & Bikes

Mural final

 

 

There it is! All finished and the animals are all ready to bike on. Had a lot of fun painting those animals, I think mostly because I never draw animals. Anyways happy Wednesday y’all!

 

And the pop ups continue…

Color Composition

 

 

Color Comp for the next pop up spread. The story is about a squirrel scout named Sheldon who is bullied for being extremely tall. In this scene he meets some monsters who share his outcast status. (and height). Future friends. Planning on adding some more interesting details (feels too empty right now) but hoping this one really pops. HA HA.

Mural Sketchin’

Sketch

 

 

Sketch for an upcoming project. Our assignment was to come up with an idea for a mural. I, of course, wanted to go with a more kid friendly approach and what better way to teach kids about Rochester’s great biking community than with animals on bikes??

 

Excited to create this piece! (Unfortunately not actually creating a real mural)
