When you find yourself the villain in the story you have written..

The first assignment for Drawing II was to create a study of any object. For this broad topic it seems that common choice is shoes, but I love my Vans and they were what I decided would be the most fun out of the all the objects I was deciding between. I set them up on the chair in my room for the weekend, and my little light down by them for greater contrast! I used nero lead, which I really like since it will go quite dark, but it is a little harder to erase out highlights. These are a few shots of my process!

Someone on my floor had those little magnetic beads, so Jackson decided to do a bunch of fake piercings with them - you just have to put one on each side of your ear, mouth, etc.! I really like the ears but he refuses to actually get them done.

Nordic Skiing Comic

I am back at UMaine, the first classes of the spring semester begin today! Over winter break I drew a nordic ski-related comic for my boyfriend Jackson who competed in high school. This is based on one of his last ski races that he told me about. I used comic strip boards and double sided Blick markers!
