This started out as a fairly loose and quick color sketch of Pigeon. I think I may have spent a little more time than I wanted to on it - in total about 2 hours. I didn't want to kill the freshness, looseness - spontaneity of it and I wanted to work in complements - I think I succeeded. Enjoy!

Finally finished these pieces. Again, they were done with sumi ink and gesso on craft paper. I'm happy with these images and with these materials but in the future I might mount the craft paper to a board/wood because the paper really wrinkles with the addition of the water based mediums.

This past Friday I went to the Gage Academy Student Exhibition with Seattle celebrity and art model extrodinaire Pigeon as well as my two illustrious colleagues Alecia Rossano and Peter Moerhle. Gage's philosophy of art education is based on the classic atelier system which had it's heyday in France during the 1800's before it was usurped by Impressionism. The atelier system never quite died; pockets of this educational system remain and are firmly entrenched, especially here in Seattle.

Here's a couple of images I took at the Emerald City Comic Con. DigiPen had a booth there to advertise and I was there to represent. Unfortunately, the only real highlights were what I took pix of . . . seeing an original Milt Caniff was awesome! Also, I finally got to meet Alberto Ruiz. There is a link to his blog in my links section . . . you must check his stuff out especially if you love the female form!
Here's some quick digital thumbs/viz dev of an Elk for a potential summer project that the faculty here at DigiPen might work on. If all goes according to plan we may be animating a 30 second short as a tool for crosstraining and fodder for marketing and competition. Keep your fingers crossed.

Here's a panoramic shot of SafeCo Field. This was my first ball game here in Seattle. The home team beat up on Chicago. I attended the game with my colleagues Gordon and Jazno. Jazno took the pix and composited them in Photoshop. Check Jazno out at http://jazno.com
