An old piece done back for art school. We had to create an illustration for a magazine titled article about lying. Honestly one of my most technical pieces I’ve done in pastels. It’s easier when things are rendered with lighting. But sharp edges with flat colors? It was a challenge.
This illustration was published in a local Charleston, SC magazine in 2009. I did this at the very end of my senior year of college. It was a spot illustration for an article about building a water treatment plant. One side of the argument was preserving nature, while the other side argued for better drinking water.
An old piece back from my college days. Not all of my artwork makes it into my portfolio. That is suppose to be a selection of my best work. Sometimes rainbow shark here makes it in there, sometimes not.
I liked this assignment though. We were required to do an illustration with a shark, but had to use a warm color theme.
Done for this week’s Illustration Friday theme of ocean. I’ve been following Illustration Friday forever now and never have done a piece for them. Guess I can’t say that any more. Also I’ve always wanted to do a circular piece.
A self portrait. A friend gifted me a scarf and a Venetian mask when she returned from a study abroad in Italy. One night I decided to play with the two of them and this was eventually born. One of my first ventures into mix media process of water colors, color pencils, and acrylic washes.
