Moose Transportation

Sorry for lack of posts lately, senior year is in full swing! I promise a ton of work (and a ton of thesis work) is on its way! But for now, here's a watercolor painting of a few forest animals hitching a ride with a moose.

Cactus Cats!

For my synergism in illustration class we had to do some research on mythical creatures. I chose the cactus cat, a cat who lives in the American southwest. The critter is said to be covered in needle-like hair and has a bone extending from its arm which it uses to cut cacti open (in a spiral pattern) and it drinks the cactus juice. Because the cactus juice is fermented, the cat walks around in the desert, drunk, howling. Cowboys created the creature to explain weird noises they would hear at night. I decided it would be an entertaining image if they had a "cactus bar."

Self Portrait

An assignment for class, a self portrait in black and white of you shouting. It was used as a poster for "Call for Entrees." This was incredibly fun, and I forgot how much I love ink. I'm itching to add color to this....
