Just Peachy Oil Pastels

For the next official project from my 2d design class, I got to work with oil pastels. I know I talked about a doing a surrealist piece in my last post, but I still need to take a few more pictures of it so I'll do another post about it after this one. For this... Continue Reading →

Mustaches On the Mind

So for this project, I learned how to use a new medium which I've never used before: charcoal! This piece was done on gray-toned charcoal paper with white and black charcoal pencils.

The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty." -Mother Teresa "We have come dangerously close to... Continue Reading →

Happy Hallows-giving

So I decided to do a Halloween drawing...a few days after Halloween. I have been really swamped with work recently and unfortunately I haven't had much time to do any personal drawing, or post this project. By this time, It's the middle of November, almost time for a completely different holiday, Thanksgiving. I have also... Continue Reading →

Summer 2017

As I suspected, I did not have time to write over the summer, so I've decided to summarize everything I've been working on in the summer and early fall. I had a great time this summer, but it went by so fast! I did a lot of summer homework and volunteering at my local zoo... Continue Reading →
