Here's one of the images I used to complete an assignment "A house, a tree, clouds and a horizon line" for Yuko Shimizu's Principles of Illustration class. This one is cut paper. I have a small collection of various papers with different colors, textures, and patterns that I used to make this.
Another assignment for Sam Weber's. I chose to illustrate the mechanical hounds from Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The hounds are described to have spider legs, a syringe, and a flamethrower (I'm pretty sure). It's been a while since I read the book. The top is a sketch to just work out the idea and experiment with a tighter wash for the head while using a bold, expressive mark for the fur and body. I plan to refine the final piece.
I also picture the final as a wrap around book cover with the head on the front and body on the back of the book.
The top three images are studies for the final at the bottom. This was for Sam Weber's ink techniques class. I wanted to experiment with contrast and dry brush techniques. The middle two images are bamboo studies where I tried to use a more expressive mark.

So these are more old pictures from last year. This was for a sculpture project called Drawing Machine. I replicated the crankshaft of an engine that has paw print stamps on the ends of the pistons. Ideally, you turn the crank and the machine stamps a pile of paper.

Another assignment for Sam Weber's ink technique class. This is possibly one of my favorite images that I've made this year. In the sketches there are crabs harvesting beans and climbing on a giant bean. I'll be sure to scan those in.
