This is a sketch done a few weeks back for a contest to design this year's Young Playwrights Festival poster for Baltimore's Centerstage Theater. It didn't win (congrats, Becca!) but I like it a lot so I'd like to try turning it into something I could add to my portfolio. Any ideas?

Here is my second piece for thesis, a spot illustration for one of the chapters in the book. This is from the part when Mary explores Misselthwaite on a rainy day and discovers a lot of dusty old portraits spanning the house's past, including one of a parrot and a little girl who reminds Mary of herself.
Here, finally, is the first finished garden piece, which I just found out has been accepted into MICA's juried undergraduate show! If you're in the area come see it on view from October 28th-through the beginning of November (I'll get the closing date up soon. They don't have it on the website).

Sorry I've been so bad about documenting my thesis! Here's a photo of the first piece about 1/3 of the way through, taken a few weeks back.
Oh, how simple things were back then!
I actually just finished this piece today (finally! omg...) and scanned it but I want to try photographing it too before I post it online.

Some of the bigger pieces have annoying lines down one side because the scanner I was using had a glitch. I'll try to rescan those soon but I figured I'd better just put them up now since it's taken so long already.
These are basically in chronological order. You can see how I loosened up as times went on.

Hey all! We finally started using color in my Narrative Color class! Here is a movie poster-type-thing for one of my favorite movies growing up, 1996's Matilda.
We were limited to a "ketchup and mustard" pallet of cadmium red, yellow ochre, black, and white. Here are all the basic colors and shades you can get with only these four pigments.
Pretty cool, huh? (It looks like Thanksgiving!)
For fun, though, I did a version of the background a little bit more blue, just to get the real old-fashioned chalkboard color feel into it.
