Handmade Sketchbook

So I made a sketchbook recently to save some money with some papers I had laying around my place, since I used my last sketchbook halfway to write in my contact list. I am not much of a book maker myself, and am taking a class with Shawn Williams this summer doing an indy study making a picture book. So why not experiment!

Below is a page I did where I am playing around with layering and drawing without reference. I am not quite there yet to do without reference but I have come far from when I was heavily dependent on it to now how I loosely use it. This was all drawn without pencil.

WIP - Letting Go

Click on image to enlarge

So I am working on 3 personal pieces before hitting the rest of the 15 pages of my comic I wrote and am illustrating. This is an in progress shot of one aspect of the final image.

I will post one image later, and a few thumbnails as teasers. I will post those pieces at the end of the month, and possibly more personal pieces if I find time.

It's "O-Fishel"! - New York here I come

I did not want to mention this until I got all the financial aid worked out to announce that this September I will be attending SVA's MFA Illustration as a Visual Essay Program.

I will have an apartment with my friend Rachel in either Brooklyn or Queens in Mid/Late July, but I will not intitially move into the city till mid-August.

See some of you NY folk soon!

"Two weeks down... and I got this feeling."

I was asked by Harrisburg, PA's best pop punk band, Handguns to design several shirt designs to choose from to use as they go on tour this summer. I am pretty stoked about it.

Their myspace layout was designed by Demisphere Design.
