Live in the Sunshine, Swim in the Sea
Last summer, I stayed with my grandmother in a beach house for a week in June. While I has reading, writing, and generally enjoying the lovely atmosphere of the coast, I came across this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson: "Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air." I just thought it was so beautiful, and I wanted to somehow incorporate it into a drawing.
Rose Queen
I used to play a particular card game all the time with my family, and it was called Sleeping Queens. The goal was to use various kings (Bubblegum King, Hat King, Chess King, all with glorious illustrations) to wake up the poor bespelled damsels. The real fun came in when we employed knights to steal the queens from others, dragons to stop the knights, potions to return queens to the sleeper area, and wands to block the potions. Anyway, I always wanted to design my own queens and kings for it, and possibly create a modified version of the game. This is the preliminary design I made for the Rose Queen.
Sea Dweller
*Sorry about the resolution! I gave this to a friend, and can't get any better pictures.

This particular maiden came out of my Pottery 2 class. My plan was to use raku glaze so her scales would light up with the fantastic metallic colors. Unfortunately, due to humidity (or, perhaps, malice from the kiln gods. Very capricious deities, those) the glaze came out matte, brown, and bubbly. Awful, in short. So I ended up painting the whole thing with nail polish, and I rather like the result.
Mural Scale Design
Last August, as part of a volunteer project, I got to design and paint a mural for the 160 sqaure foot wall of a elementary school library. Their mascot was a leopard, so I researched the African rain forest and found some wildlife I could include in the picture. This is the scale design I used, first for the planning stage and then, in tandem with a projector, as guidelines for the painting. It was an absolutely incredible process, and I had so much fun.
