First Ever Wooden Marionette

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This marionette came from my love of the animal called the Red Panda. And since I was always a bit intrigued with fashion I made clothing that would somewhat resemble the animals characteristics and color scheme. I elongated  legs because in high school i remember seeing some clothe line design drawings and that all the models had longer than normal legs. In my pictures I tried to position my model so that it looked as though it were in a photo shoot, acting in a carefree manner and yet “sexy” way. Continue reading

Creation Myth Comic Strip

This comic panel deals with the creation story of the Tungusic tribe that resides in Northeast Asia/ Siberia region. They don’t have much in art but they do have clothing, so most of my artwork is based off old Asian art and the fashion of their time.

Non Sequential

For the composition of this piece I decided to have it sit in the center and have it so that the flow of my objects would carry you to the other objects no matter where one starts. In order to show depth I had very light shading and line work. As for the objects that were to appear closer they got thicker and darker lines as well as more variation in the gradients of my shading. To eliminate the emptiness from both the top and the bottom, the shadow of the non-sequential was added to take away the white space that would have been there, and the word “LIFE” was added not only to fill the top background but as a word with meaning. The gradient background was added to enhance not only the bold letters but to make the gradients within the non-sequential more vibrant. Continue reading

Self Reflection

For this Self-Portrait I drew what was seen through a window at dusk. The light difference inside to outside allowed for a double vision of imagery to be displayed onto the glass panes of the window. In order to show that these are two separate yet  distinguishable images, I used hash shading going from upper right to lower left for me inside reflections and upper left to lower right for the outside. I was going for an effect that when both images collided a dark crosshatching would form but, I decided against that for majority of it because I didn’t want the details to be lost. Sadly while drawing this no people graced me with there presence by walking either behind me nor outside the window so no other human figures are present. The floating “arbitrary” forms that surround me are my main thought proccesses while creating this work. I was thinking about how little time I feel I have for how I work, always have some random song in my head; this time it was “I love Rock and Roll” by Joan Jett The Blackhearts, my dance routines because a big showcase is coming soon for us, and a different art piece represented by the eye as it’s a little off putting. The eye is not only placed onto my head for its symbolism of my project but of the fact that I’m optimistic and am looking up to see where I can eventually lead myself.
