A little excercise in rendering that I thought i'd share.

In other news, I just spent 260 dollars on a sweater and jacket :( :( :(

Theatre poster assignment for class.
I chose to depict the book "Perfume" by Patrick Suskind.
The story revolves around the character of Jean Baptiste Grenouille, a man born with the most powerful sense of smell ever possessed by a human being, but with no individual odor of his own (a fact other people find disquieting). Jean Baptiste apprentices himself to a perfumer and becomes obsessed with procuring the perfect scent that will make people love him. In the process, he creates perfumes that powerfully manipulate human emotions, murdering 25 girls to take their scent.
I wanted to use the hair as a direct visual metaphor for Grenouille's complete intoxication from the scent of his victims while keeping his figure slightly menacing and creepy.

Most weary seem’d the sea, weary the oar,
Weary the wandering fields of barren foam.
Then some one said, “We will return no more;”
And all at once they sang, “Our island home
Is far beyond the wave; we will no longer roam.”

Lord Alfred Tennyson,
"The lotus Eaters"

ps- I was checking my stats today, and I found out that the number one search engine phrase that leads people to my blog is "Old titties." Number two: "Older titties." AWESOME!!

Jack Torrance

Jack from Stephen King's novel "The shining."
I tried to go with a slightly more subtle approach with this image rather than the (what I felt to be) hit you-over-the-head bluntness of the hallway peice . Jack is eventually driven mad by his own demons as well as those in the hotel, so the items on the desk are supposed to allude to the skeletons in his closet and foreshadow the events which take place later in the novel.
I tried to make his face appear haggard and defeated despite his relatively young age.
Anyways, enough jibber jabber. Here it is:

Some characters that have been kicking around in my head for a while. I'll probably never see this one thrrough, but I thought I'd post it nonetheless.

A random calgary transit sketch.

Two for flinching

Ahhhh, it feels good to be posting something finished again.
A super quick editorial illusrtation about manic depressives having electrodes implanted into their brains to regulate mood.
I only had a week to do this one, Eep 0__o.

Part one in a series for class. We had to do a character portrait of a protagonist, so I decided to do Danny from "The Shining."
Part two coming soon!

A super quick sketchbook painting (loosely) based on the life and times of John Henry Patterson, a British railway surveyor who killed two man eating lions in the Tsavo region.

Bleh. My productivity has been next to nothing this summer, but here's some stuff that I've managed to squeeze out between six-day work weeks and boozery.

(Gouache & photoshop).

Some environment thumbs for class. I won't get too deep into it now, but the concept is basically a suspended shanty town built under these megalithic abandoned underpasses in the not too distant future. Gah, I need to push this more, methinks...needs more clutter.
The size you see them is the size I drew them at.
