Sationary show/ Portfolio day

Last week was a pretty big week. On Monday a bunch of senior illustration students (including myself) got to attend the Stationary/Surtex show at the Javits center in Manhattan. It's a licensing show for artists and other companies. It was an ubber long day, but we saw a lot of really awesome stuff there and it was a good introduction to how licensing works. The public wasn't allowed to take photos inside the show, so I took a few pictures of the lobby area of the Javits Center.

Tuesday was our Portfolio Day. It's where the Illustration seniors invite art directors to come check out our portfolios. There's food and everything :) The only bad thing is that it was rainy and gross the whole day.

Thanks to everyone who made it out to see us!

Here's a few pictures from Portfolio Day:

pattern part 2

Here's another pattern I created...gotta love pattern:) I want to look into getting some of my patterns printed on fabric. That would be sooooooo AWESOME!


I completely forgot to post a pattern I created a few weeks ago. I heart it with my life. It's inspired by my honey jar self-portrait (my profile picture). I LOVE HONEY...not so much bees, just honey.

This is the last piece I did for Jon Krause. It's a poster against the fear of frogs (aka Ranidaphobia) . This is the version of the painting without the type. It's a new cereal called Frogo's...a wholesome breakfast your family will LEAP for!

The Medicated Child

Jon Krause is the third and final teacher for the personal viewpoints class. This piece is for an article about overly medicated children. Jon's been introducing me to some new techniques (which I am lovin' p.s.). He taught me how to use the frisket correctly and also told me about making stamps and using those for texture and pattern. i decided to try them both out in this piece. I made two pill stamps out of pink eraser to create the background pattern. I'm surprised I didn't cut my self because small pieces of erazer plus small box cutter equals danger zone .
