I forgot to post this idea submitted to the UCF anthology cover "competition". Take from it what you will.

Not a Good Likeness


Having so much trouble capturing a good likeness of Kerouac, posing him in such a way that I have no direct photo reference. Took a picture of myself then tried to build his face on top of mine ... really not that simple. This piece may be done by tomorrow, but no guarantees.

Know who it looks like, the detective from Twin Peaks.

Style Study


After laboring far too long over meticulous watercolor paintings that never ended up looking as I wanted them to, I've decided to go nuts.
And to change the way I work. Things will be different from here on.

2 Thumbs


Two thumbs for degree project pieces,
a portrait of Burroughs alluding to his "cut-up" style of writing,

and a portrait of Kerouac depicting his marathon typing.

"Why no color?" asks Wojciech.

Obama Tree-head

Everyone in Illustration 4 is required to submit to the Mass Art Democracy Show's call for entries. The specifications are:

Work submitted must be of political or social nature containing content or a message that relates to topical or current issues, trends or events.

I'm going with a globally minded Obama, dreaming of leafy goodness.
(This is only a sketch. The finished piece will be cranked out in the next few days.)


It's a little absurd, but so am I.
