Oh yeah I have a blog...

I finally graduated with a BFA in Drawing. Sort of bittersweet since I have four more years at CalArts. I have been looking for a summer job. It is an odd situation when you have a college degree that pretty much doesn't matter at all in the job market. Oh well, I enjoyed my stay at CU Denver.

I'm posting the ever popular guinea pig portraits! My teacher John Hull just kept telling me "more" guinea pigs. My whole independent study was just that....guinea pigs :D Out of that great experience I created my comic zine Fight or Flight. My study was during a painting class where I did portraits of my friends.



Richard and Nancy

The paint guru Lisa!


My friend Sean with his many acrylic jars...
As a farewell gift to John Hull, he was moving to Charleston, I made him a guinea pig. Lots of inside jokes in this piece.

The newest of the drawing is my guinea pig portrait I gave to the Flight of the Conchords when they played at the Ellie Caulkins. True bliss I have to say because I got to give it to them.

The very sweet and tall Jemaine Clement!


The also very tall and sweet Bret.

And because I am lazy....my thesis art...the one with the pandas can be found at my new deviantart account. I mainly got one because all the CalArts peeps update that thing like crazy. I think when I probably post my thesis art on this blog, I will discuss that I hope people don't consider my art "furry art." I just think people as guinea pigs is silly and fun.

Thanks for reading ^^

Pictures, pictures, pictures. Wow, that's a handsome dude there, Melon. (Jemaine Clement.)

What a peek into what your life was like at Denver U. Congratulations on your Bach's. It isn't worthless because you're not in a geographic area that would find it mind-blowing. Now, go to NYC, for instance, or Vancouver B.C.--

But you're coming here, to SoCal. I have a feeling that you'll belong here. I'll keep an eye out for you!
