These paintings were for Iconography class. We were to illustrate a childhood memory. I remembered playing old-school nintendo, and also going to the corner store with my allowance to buy candy. Sugary goodness...

I'm taking a book-making class this semester, which is a nice change of pace from drawing/painting. This is the first project from book class. Bit of a learning curve in terms of production; I majorly underestimated the amount of time it takes to put a book together - especially with content. And figuring out the pagination and trying to do all that manually brought back bad memories of my old job - blargh.
Anyways, here is my very first book! All hand-made, the cover is silkscreened. Inside was created digitally. Book is bound with a pamphlet stitch.

phew... long time no posting. This week has been busy... I've been painting frantically for the past three days. Why do I always procrastinate? Below is one of the three paintings I did this week, it was for Illustration Essentials class. This is in acrylics; the next project is watercolors, which should be interesting because I haven't used watercolors that much. Looking forward to it.
it's kinda weird staring at your own face for so long... a little awkward. Especially when working on it in class time. I wish I had played around with the portrait a bit more, mine is pretty boring compared to other people's (facial expression, colors, etc.). Next time gadget...
These illustrations were for Iconography class. We were to interpret a short piece of text, so I chose some song lyrics. Something along the lines of "have you ever played hockey by the light of the moon? shinny on a sunday afternoon". I'm pretty happy with how these turned out, especially the ice-ish gradient in the background. These prints will be up in an Illustration Show at school, opening next week.
