This is my sketch for a mock article in my editorial illustration class entitled “Cat Diaries”
It is pretty funny. The article gives and example diary entry that starts out …
“Day 983 of my captivity . . . “
It goes on to describe daily life through a cat’s eyes.

So I am trying to design a child version of the best mascot ever, Aubie, the Auburn Tiger. It has been tricky working on this because there are certain trademarked features of the adult Aubie that have to be present in the child Aubie.
So this is the real, official Aubie >
Below are my sketches of the kid Aubie.

So I am re-designing the cover for an existing book by Roald Dahl called “The Giraffe the Pelly and Me”
It is a super-cute book about the “ladderless window cleaning company” that consists of a monkey, a pelican, and a giraffe. The meet a young boy and eventually get a lifetime gig of cleaning windows for the Duke at the Hampshire mansion.

limerick illustration which I had originally done in black and white for a class. I decided to reuse this same line drawing to try my hand at electronic illustration because I wanted to see it in color.
The Limerick to remind you is Edward Lears,
“There was a young lady whose bonnet
Came united when the birds sat upon it
But she said “I don’t care…
All the birds in the air…..
Are welcome to sit on my bonnet!”
Which version do you prefer?
According to the Native American Iroquois Tribe, The Earth was created when a woman was thrown down from the heavens. The animals below made her a place to live by spreading mud from the depths of the ocean onto the shell of a great Zaratan. Since then, the island has grown and grown to the size of North America as we know it today.
Made out of cut paper and tissue streamers with my own handmade textures.
I plan to clone out the hand-written text because it is a little sloppy. I might replace it with digital text.

As a last project for Materials and Techniques I, we had to pull three words out of an envelope. I got “Hot”, “Fish”, and “Crown”. I had to illustrate these 3 words with collage materials. This is what I came up with. I hope she makes you laugh .

Also, The day of the interview, I did a few more patterns to sneak into the portfolio I left with them. I have yet to photograph the handmade pattern I put on the front of the book but will include that once I get it back.
I also wanted to share some character designs I have been working on for my Intro to Illu class. I am pretty happy with how they look but if I have time I may resolve them a bit more. They are done by painting acrylic over tissue paper for some texture and the costumes I have been creating digitally in photoshop. The assignment was to create six characters for a circus. I was thinking along the lines of a flea circus and decided to do a circus of dogs. I have the ringmaster which is supposed to look like my friend’s german shephard. I have the acrobat. I have the elephant/english bulldog. The clown is drawn after my friend’s corgi puppy. There is the schnauzer bearded lady. And finally, my dog, Frankie is the ballerina/tight rope walker. It is not included here but the acrobat’s swing is a bone with ropes tied to it. :-P
