Collage Show

So, the lovely Miss Victoria Belisle ( http://victoriambelisle.blogspot.com/ ) and I have teamed up for a very interesting project - series of collages based on old cabinet photo portraits. The pictures we've found are all from around 1890 to around 1915, and we've been having quite a bit of fun making up stories and connections for them and theming the collages around the personalities.

Both of our pieces will eventually be mounted in a show at Montserrat's Bear Gallery, although the specific date is still pending. More information to come!

In the meantime, here's a small preview of some of my contributions to the project:

Excerpts from 100 Themes

In Character Creation, we have an ongoing project of making a character to utilize in 100 illustrations based on a list of prompts. My character is a female gunslinger named Bonnie trying to track down the men who killed her older brother. These are a few of my favourites so far.

All of the illustrations are brown in on illustration board in 4"x4" squares.

Bonnie herself.

#1 - Introduction


#17 - Blood

#23 - Cat

House Gremlin

Here is another assignment from Character Creation. We had to invent monsters, so I made a house gremlin - a little rodent sized creature that does all sorts of nasty things around the house, including poking needles into the ears of sleeping children. But, he's afraid of teddy bears so, really, how scary can he be?

Mostly pencil on bristol board, with water colour in the turnaround.

Random Character Creation

Here are a few random sketches and such from my Character Creation class:

Bertie Wooster (pencil on illustration board)

redesign of Harley Quinn (ink and watercolour on illustration board)

a few pencil sketches of facial expressions - they were mean to be self portraits, of sorts

More Natural Science!

More from Natural Science Illustration.

pencil sketch of a snowy owl

coloured pencil and graphite

Some pieces from Natural Science Illustration

As the title says, these are a few drawings from the Natural Science Illustration course I'm taking this semester. The top two are pencil, and the bottom one is pencil and watercolour on bristol board.
