new semester

the semester has begun, and my first assignment for illustration A is a drawing based on an article about the migling of sports terms in everyday language. hoorah! here were my two roughs i showed today.

the one above is based on the term "saved by the bell,"

and this was the one she really liked. "chalk talk," you can kind of tell

the kind of influence calvin and hobbes has had on meh.

What i really want to do is bust out a new style for the illustration, something

to catch the eye, or more like wrestle it to submission.... we'll see how that goes.

maybe too much lucha libre...nah.

OoO and i went to L.A. last friday as a kind of last hurrah before school, here are some pics from the trip, i went to check out some graffiti spots but wasnt too sucessful, but i cant say it wasnt a fun day.

meow...right after sushi

fire in the hole!

rock on dead guy, i love you too.

well i have more but i'll save em for a post later this week. :)

this should be rare, a post with no pics. its just too late to scan and not wake anyone. anyway i was looking at this blog and two things popped into my head: A) it wasnt the best idea to try and commit to a blog right before finals due to the heavy workload and B) only ten posts! thats crap, i have tons more stuff to show than that. So from now on it will be hopefully a minimum weekly post, or i will be very sad.

On another note, GO SEE ....PAN'S LABRINTH! awesome is the only word i can think of.
Lately I've felt kinda out of it for a lot of reasons but also in the last few days i found some sources for inspiration in all directions. muy bueno para la salud.

ooh ok, ill post a picture i took instead. chamelions rock. that is all

My new comic for "SCRAP"
Overall I like it and I think its good for a first try.
The great thing about finishing it was that it opened up a lot
of new ideas and directions and now I think I'll enjoy my
break a little easier. Please tell me what cha think,
any crits are much appreciated.

the end.

oh and fun fact: imago is defined as the fully developed and reproductive form of an insect.
