so this poster that I made was accepted into my school's 18th annual Hokin Honors exhibit. I hate to be all in your face about it but its pretty cool.
Here are some shots of the display.
I think it looked good, its awesome this poster was included. Major props to Ivan Brunetti who wrote a recommendation for my work.
There was also my comic entitled the life & death of Bob Boardman that I made in my drawing the graphic novel class. I also shared this wall space with fellow cartoonists and classmates, Nick Drnaso, John Gregg and kevin Budnik who is not pictured in the photo above, but nonetheless was there
Its a pretty stellar show, if your around campus check it out while you still can.

But instead of doing that I took my time to procrastinate and show some pictures. YAY
So this is my cork board, I pin things that I find interesting, inspiring or funny to me. I know people have blogs or tumblers but I prefer to have something physical. The old postcard, the stickers or photographs are all physical objects that have a more permanent meaning than most things I see on the internet. I kind of prefer it that way.
This hanging on my wall is one of the drawings for wanderlust. I think a lot of people were pretty surprised to learn that the original drawing for the comic was on a 19x24 inch piece of paper. All of it was done with crow quill pen nibs, a brush and ink.
I think I procrastinated enough for one post.

So This is a set of illustration that I did as part of my editorial illustration class.
The concept was to attend an event that we have never been to, document and illustrate it in a illustrated essay.
For my event I went to an Asian market close to where I lived.
This was challenging, and I am surprised to see where they ended up as a set. Because they looked radically different from my initial sketches. Overall I am more or less satisfied with the end concept.

The final installment of wanderlust. I think this was probably the most consistent story I made. The zine has two extra pages of other content that I will not post. You will have to hunt one down to see what it is.
Also quimbys wrote a nice little write up about it, check it out----->Link
I so want to get back into the rhythm of making mini comics. Once school wraps up I will hit the drawing board.
This song has been on my mind all day. So good. spike jones at his best with that video too.
