The Trocadero- This is a music venue in Philadelphia known for its beautiful exteriors and interiors. I was inspired to start drawings buildings when my friend Sean Metcalf did a drawing of the Troc. I thought what better way to start off a series of building drawings then to start with something that your inspired by. Not only by Seans version but the fact I attend shows there 2-5 times a year.
SHE & HIM- For some reason when drawing Matt it was almost nothing to do. I did maybe 2 drawings till I got it right, but for some reason I drew Zooey NINE TIMES! I think that this is the closest to a likeness of her I can get. I found out about this band from Paste Magazine. They are album of the year. Who knew. Plus I didn't know it but Zooey, before being a indie rock queen, was an actress in many movies I have watched much of recently, and prefers doing music over movies.
Cancer- In Wired Magizine, they put out an article about how Cancer researchers should stop working on a cure for cancer, and focus on a more realistic goal of trying to prevent, and detect cancer early. 90% of people survive stage 1 and 2 of cancer due to early detection and screenings, while 10% of people survive stage 3 and 4 due to the severity of the cancer and how far it has and hasn't spread.
Delivering the Promise of Non-Profits- Wither it is to save polar bears, or to build green spaces in cities, there are people out there trying to build a commerce to invest into projects that benefit people as a whole. Many of these organizations stand true to their word, but how can we trust that these business' will stay true to their value of why they are doing what they are doing. This illustration is literal/conceptual in the way I am showing the duality of an industrial area that has a voice of someone who wants to build something new. Look as its also delievering its message too!
On a side note, I did send my grad school papers, portfolio, ect... around noon today. I got a tracking number so I can see where it is. I just hope it gets there tomorrow.
