illustration friday - "phobia" number two


nosocomephobia: fear of hospitals

this one was done with oil pastels on black construction paper, made by drawing everything but the lines, leaving the paper uncolored to indicate the outlines. i'm really enjoying this "art in elementary education" class. i'm using materials that i normally wouldn't, and seeing how far you can push children's art supplies.

illustration friday - "phobia"


pyrophobia: fear of fire

this is also from my art in elementary education class. julia has been teasing me because i've been doing much of my homework with crayons lately. this particular image was made by placing crayon shavings in between two pieces of wax paper, then putting a newspaper over it and heating it with a warm iron. note: you cannot do this project if you have thermophobia--fear of heat.

illustration friday - "change"

i just started an "art in elementary education" class this week, and our first assignment was to make an abstract work with crayons. this is what happened with mine. i kind of stumbled into the warm-changing-to-cool-colors thing by accident and decided to keep going with it. i don't know, it's kind of nice i think.

"subway glances", another missed connection

subway1 subway2 i decided to do a whole comic of this one. now that i've done two of them, i may go ahead and do a longer series of missed connection comics. we'll see. i just started a watercolor class, so i may start incorporating some color in my comics pretty soon as well.

illustration friday - "farm"

sorry i've been so absent lately. i've been busy the past couple of weeks, since i decided to transfer schools so late in the summer. so i had to really scramble to get everything done. now everything is in order, so i should be posting fairly regularly again. well, except i'm taking 20.5 credits this semester, and i'm getting married in a month. so maybe not that regularly.
