"Disenchanted Princess"

Here's an illustration a part of an idea for an artist book I want to put together in the future, once all my current projects go away. 

"Maddie Story - Spread 1"

This is a part of a children's story dummy I've been working on for the last couple months.  It's supposedly the first spread of the story.  The story is about a girl named Maddie who finds a gigantic stuffed animal in a forest and is so smitten with it, she tries to figure out a way to get it home.  I'm not sure how, or if, this illustration will fit in with everything else once the story progresses, so I may redo or change it in the future.  But this is it for now.

I'll color these both soon.  These are just the black and white pencil versions.

See ya! 

Okay, well it's 2014, and I'm finally updating this blog.  Sorry, blog.  Here are a few drawings in progress I've been working on since last year.  They are a part of a series of drawings I've been doing since my sophomore year of college.

The first drawing is of my half uncle David.  The second is of my great grandfather Ralph, grandfather Lloyd, grandmother Meryl, uncle Paul, and mom.  The third is of my mom.

I'd like to have one of these done by the summer, but I can't say with confidence I will - never know how life is going to switch your goals up.  Once I do, though, I'll provide a bit more information about this series and what it means (to me).
