Zombie and Art Dude face off

This is the first computer generated art I've made that I actually like, a huge step for me. It's part of an info-graphic poster about what art supplies to use to kill zombies should zombies suddenly happen. 'Cause they could, y'know.

Blank Canvas

Stay tuned, dear friends.

Phase two: background colours blocked in.

And foreground subjects! There's Bob and Charlie, hanging out in their favorite corner of the tank.

Overhead Sketches

Our introductory assignment for interpretive illustration this year is to overhear a segment (three-four lines) of exchanged conversation between two strangers and interpret that into a picture. It's fun, but very difficult. Too many people know how to use appropriate indoor voices and it's easy to mishear what they say. I thought these two through a lot but I'm gunna try to develop one more image for both of these conversation pieces. Edit: after uploading these I looked at the digital copy of the first picture and added glasses to the ape-teacher.

"I'm not stupid, y'know?"
"My teacher wrote to me."
"He abused his wife."

"A little fucked up."
"But then!"
"A plate of nachos."

Lake Ontario

I biked to the comics store, bought my Wednesday comics. Then I biked to the beach. I sketched in acrylics on a weenie 6x8 canvas board and I art-creeped some guy who was swimming in the yucky water.

Dr. Sketchy themed session: Tank Girl

Last night I went to my first Dr. Sketchy life drawing session and it OWNED. I'm seriously wishing I had read some Tank Girl comics before attending, but it was fun regardless. Here are some ballpoint highlights:
