The colors managed to get all washed out here somehow, the original is a lot warmer. An experiment with implied narrative. I'm happy with this one! I was looking at Cecilia Beaux and my good friend Sargent when I did this.
Here's a detail of it too- my favorite model, who also happens to be my roommate, Cait.

A triptych. Kindness vs. envy. To the right is Kindness, the left is envy. Acrylic again.

an illustration of a short story, six words: tick tock tick tock tick tick. the concept was biological clocks, slowing it down or stopping it. this is acrylic, and a little ink.

an assignment to create a poster for a concert. i picked neko case's fox confessor brings the flood tour. the album is mostly based on russian folk tales about animals. sounds weird, i know, but the resulting music is really beautiful. i looked at colors and patterns from pysanky for reference.

this was a free assignment for my painting class, i decided to tackle a couple large scale figure paintings, and really try to push the color. i'm not as happy with this painting as i was with the other. i might go back in and make some changes to the background.
hello all! i created this blog to keep you updated on my artistic doings at MICA. check back every couple weeks. i'll try to be better about photographing everything, from sketch to finish. i'll start by posting some of my work from last semester that i'll be submitting for this years competitive scholarships.
