Leopard and Bushpig


We went to the Natural History Museum to draw one of the dioramas today, and I chose the leopard and the bushpig. Throughout the time I was drawing, families kept coming up to the diorama, and no matter what language they were speaking it was "Blah blah blah blah bushpig." I was really starting to like the word "bushpig" after a few hours.

Frankenstein at Magnolia Bakery

Another Frankenstein drawing! This time we were supposed to put Frankenstein (or Dr. Frankenstein) in a modern NY setting. I chose to put him across from Magnolia Bakery, celebrating his birthday alone with a cupcake.

Self Portrait

So for my painting class, we were supposed to create an illustration of ourselves as any animal we wanted! I chose a gibbon (because who doesn't love a gibbon?) who is eating dumplings (my favorite food) and clearing away a spot in his mess of a room to draw. He stole my glasses and my pen, too...Now for this week, we are making an oil painting of the same composition.

Wolves and Model Sketches

For this project we had to pick an animal and draw it in three different styles. I picked a wolf, and here it is in cubism, German expressionism, and cave painting:




And here are drawings of a couple models:

Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

Last Friday I went to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens with my drawing class where we were supposed to sketch different plants to use for a single composition later. Here are my sketches, my thumbnails, and then the final drawing. I realized everything I've been drawing this semester has been kind of creepy or black and white (there're a lot of snakes and spiders and Frankenstein the works) so it was fun to do something colorful and pretty instead!

Aroma Coffee

Here's an animatic of a commercial for "Aroma Coffee" based off of the reportage from the coffee shops.
