Thesis work and more

I am incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to show this work in the same space as all of my friends in the Illustration department; I have never seen so much talent and dedication in one room. I am humbled to have received one of two first prizes, the other one awarded to Katelyn Lewis. Very honorable mentions were received by
Nicole Buglak, Chris Gauvain, Adrienne Langer, Graham Palme, and Dan Fishel.

Oh yea, and I got a poster done recently for Chaz Flud's ballet about the Jersey Devil. It was a new experience to have to work in print templates and take the company's own color profiles into account. Everything got sent out to print yesterday, and I can't wait to see what the stack of posters and postcards is going to look like. I also have a small (ed. of about 19) run of original linoleum prints that I'm debating selling at the opening. I need to take the time to set up an Etsy store in the near future.

I am not contained between my hat and boots

Ink and watercolor in the sketchbook. Got 4 pages left in my sketchbook, trying to fill them up so I can start a fresh one. End of spring break seems like a good time to finish a book.

Also, I just discovered Librivox.org. They organize books that are in public domain, then volunteers record readings of these books and return the free audiobooks to the web. I'm listening to Leaves of Grass right now, and I'm about to download Ulysses.

I love coffee and coffee loves tea

Just a quick something or another. I don't use walnut ink nearly enough.

green 001 + 002

Couple of experiments to procrastinate. Who knows, could become a series until I get it right. Ink & watercolor.
