****NEW STUFF IN POST 23!!
So my old sketchbook is here. It's been over a year, and in that sketchbook I noted that I wanted to apply to grad school. well, i did, and got into an MFA program at academy of art in san francisco. i opted for the online program, as i am a full-time graphic designer, so didn't have the time/resources to move out there (i live in ct). SO, i'm creating this new sketchbook to chronicle my progress. I started in fall 2009, but most of these (except 2) are from this summer's class (head drawing with william maughan). i'll try to post some of my older stuff later. anyway, i'd love to hear some comments, and try to build up some friends in the conceptart.org community, as i come here so often to view pants-shittingly awesome artwork.
enjoy, let me know what you think! (feel free to note my enormous issues with proportions)
from my chiaroscuro class in the fall:
this chunk from this summer. all pastel pencil on midtone paper (except the pastel painting on the bottom)
here's the charcoal under-drawing for the pastel below
my first ever pastel (first ever real color thing i've ever done also, eeek!)
aaand a fun little doggy i drew in painter 11 for my girlfriend's mom :-)
