Hello!

"I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses."





I currently am an Illustration sophomore at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

I quite enjoy macabre things & cemeteries, horror, movies, music, and coffee. The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde is my favorite book, and the Victorian Era is a large source of inspiration. In the future, I see myself working on book illustrations, posters and album artwork for musicians, concept art and character design, as well as freelancing. My dream job is to work for Tim Burton, even if it was only on one film.

As of late, I am focusing on character development and storytelling, as well as trying to come up with portfolio pieces.

U

niversity time is almost here again!  It's crazy that a month from now, I'll be back to the ol' make-art-until-your-fingers-bleed life again.  I'm kind of excited, though for this quarter's classes; I'm dropping my minor, so now I can take a ceramics elective!  I adore making ceramics, although I'm not mighty good at it, so it'll be nice for some one-on-one instruction in a small class.  I'm just happy because I managed to snag the last seat in the class without having to reorganize my entire schedule hehehe~  And I'll of course be taking another Illustration class, as well as an English elective that includes works from Thoreau, Emerson, and Whitman; Transcendentalism was my favorite unit ever taught in any English course that I've taken, period.  And I have an apartment-styled dorm this year, so I can actually cook for myself //yay no cafeteria food
O
nto other topics, I'm going to try, once again, to get my page cleaned up!  I want to put a lot of my old, ugly art into storage, and redesign my frontpage a little.  If anyone knows of a good, easy way to do pretty custom coding, please let me know.  I'd love to have a nice, new photo format going on.  And I have to edit the text in Photoshop or something - the text I installed isn't compatible with my MacBook, so I have to figure it out.  It looks ugly and huge when I look at it on my MacBook, so I need to do something about it.

I
n order to challenge my work, too, I think I'm going to try some of those "redraw this" challenges.  Or one of those 30 days challenges.  Or something.  Does anyone know of any good challenges that I can try?  I worked on a new promo piece to try to get commissions for album art, and I did submit it and then immediately take it down, but I think I'm going to try to animate it.  Is making everything in it's own frame in Photoshop the easiest method?  I also haven't forgotten about the anatomy tutorial and kiriban prize!  I'll slowly get back in gear and get those up before I go back to university for sure!
