Method to the Madness?

Here is a sneak peek into my working conditions. Things can get quite messy when I'm in the middle of a project. Or three. I will post the project you see here when I finish it. Maybe in a week or so?

Sexy Girls and Video Games- A Winning Combination!

I was holding off unveiling this until the series was complete, but since you've already seen the Guitar Hero painting halfway done (I'm gonna finish it one day, I swear!), I figure I might as well show you the first completed piece.

I think the premise of this series is pretty obvious; I wanted to paint the ultimate modern male fantasy. They are also a cute, playful take on traditional pin up art, and an ode to classic video gaming as well. Work has begun on a third painting, and progress should be posted soon.

Boy, Does Time Fly....

Sorry I haven't updated in a while. Things have been pretty busy. I've got 3 gig posters to finish, as well as projects for 6 classes, so nothing really looks too complete right now. I'll try and post some sketches soon though, and in a couple weeks, you should be seeing a lot more finished work.

Self Promotion

My current assignment in my Advertising class is to design a multi-fold mailer. I am using this opportunity to create a self promotional brochure. I've spent the better part of today putting this piece together, and I think it's coming together nicely. It's still got a long way to go, but I should be ahead of the game for once when class meets on Monday.

Guitar Hero, Not Quite Done.

After near-continuous painting for roughly 21 hours straight, I'm sad to say it's still not done. My hands are shaky from the caffeine and my eyes blurry from lack of sleep, but I must press onward. I'll get a decent painting out of this one yet!

Guitar Hero Progress 2

You're seeing my progress on this painting in real time. It's 9:30pm now and I've got until 8 tomorrow morning to get this thing painted. Stick around to witness a miracle in action, or watch me crash and burn. Either way, it should be interesting.

Guitar Hero Progress

Here's that looming project I was talking about earlier. Now that I have finally nailed the composition down, I've got roughly 28 hours to paint it. Wish me luck!

Final Vinyl

Here it is, the final Crosley Record Player ad. I'm not quite satisfied with it, but it will have to do for now. I've got bigger and more important projects looming, so I'll try not to stress too much about this one. However, you can expect better posts in the very near future, dear readers.

Vinyl Junkie 2

Here's ad #2 in my 3-part Portable Turntable ad campaign. The whole set is due on Monday, so I better get cracking on the 3rd.

Ad and Graph

Here is a look at both the sketch, and the (near) final version of a print ad for my Advertising and Graphic Design class. I wanted to get real hip with this assignment, so I chose to do ads for Crosley brand portable turntables. I tried my hand at a cool, Adrian Tomine style, which I suppose wasn't a huge stretch from what my usual style, but I think it works pretty well. There are 2 more ads in this series, and they shall be posted as soon as I get em done.
