This is a 4th of July themed piece I did a couple of months ago.  I used watercolor for the sky and the rest is FW acrylic ink.

The below images are actually a rough draft for my final for Expressive Typography.  The final is centered around the idea of mythology, and originally the illustration were going to replace several of the letters in the word mythology.  The word would be typed over and over, and the illustrations would indicate the mythology of different cultures.  My teacher loves graphic and simple solutions though, so we ended up taking the project in another direction (simple black and white icons inside of the letter O instead of illustrations), but I still really like this version.
Most of the illustrations fit into my little 6"x9" sketchbook, and are done with a ballpoint pen.  The symmetrical illustrations such as the elephant I drew half of and then mirrored in photoshop to create a full, perfectly symmetrical illustration.  

A Midsummer Night's Dream

This project was for my Image and Idea class.  
The assignment was to pick a movie or play and create a new poster for it.

Statue Series

This is my final project for my Illustrative Storytelling class.  The assignment was to pick a subject and create 6 illustrations that show the passage of time.  The statues are painted from different angles and with changes in lighting, and there is also the addition of butterflies, which increase in number as the series goes on.
This project was done with FW acrylic inks on BFK reeves watercolor paper.  The sizes for these images vary, but most of them are about 10"x15"
