It's been a long time since I've posted.. (don't I always start off this way?). I FINALLY started grad school!! Sooo I've been busy being well... a grad student. My schedule isn't too busy but it is very very dense, I only have class on Tues (9am-12)/Wed(10am-10pm)/Thurs(1.5 to 9pm), but of course I'm expected to be working on my days off. Tuesday is a short class, Computer Illustration portfolio-- which is also my favorite at the moment. It's only from 9am-Noon, but so much information is packed into that small span of time. The class is primarily a re-intro to photoshop, but having not had a formal introduction to Photoshop it's nice to refresh on what I know. The teacher is Matthew Richmond and he runs a Design Company that uses a lot of illustration and exciting designs . He literally knows ... basically all there is to know about pho'tochop...orr definitely enough to get everyone started on a professional level. The variety of talent in the class is really amazing and I'm looking forward to growing artistically with my classmates. Below are some sketchs, all of them done during critiques.... don't get me wrong, I pay attention during crits! And give my own advice when I feel its necessary, but I can't seem to keep myself from drawing during lectures and crits. Old habit I guess?

This last drawing was actually partially for an illustration I made about what it was like to be stung by a jellyfish, its like part ant bite, bee sting(though i haven't been stung yet), skinned knee and burn x10 in one tiny location... it's a type of pain you really have to experience to understand, and I don't recommend it to anyone.
