To Kill a Mockingbird

Beastly final assignment: three weeks, three illustrations on a classic novel picked out of a hat, 11 x 14, anything we want beyond that basically.

Gouache, acrylic, and graphite over a textured surface.

Woo hoo for one more semester under the belt.

Cold Turkey. Har har har, get it?

My first experience with gouache, which was mildly stressful.
Awh precious little eskimo family.

Brandon Bakus pointed out to me that I make art with bald eagles a lot. It's true, but it's ok, because bald eagles are complete badasses.

Done in acrylic. ALSO- if you haven't heard, using wet paper towels and then tracing paper as a palette will keep your paint wet for practically forever.

My most recent Ill assignment was to illustrate an emotion of our choice through two images: the first being an environment without any figures or animals, and the second being a figure in an environment. The emotion I chose was defeated. Hence we have a sickly looking dude in a desert-esque place, and a still life of a dead bouquet of flowers. Defeated? Maybe.

Both images were done first as a base gouache painting, with acrylic and graphite as the successive layers.

Leaves began to change while I slept last night.

Fall knows me.

My fingertips too are turning gold.

Is it beauty, or contamination?
The color is enchanting, but that leaf is dead.
