I like classy sluts.

Do you?

I think you should.

more sketches

Oh, hi.

Not much to say.
Doodle. Foodle.

OH HEY IT'S SAL CATALANO! Everyone's favorite hero that looks like Frasier Crane. Also one of my favorite teachers. I swear it's not just because he looks like Frasier. I swear.

I see purple people.

8x10, acrylic.
Finally finished this assignment for general illustration. The right side was cut off a bit by the scanner though...
We had to take a boring article which someone wrote about teenagers. "Oh no! 13 and 14 year olds are doing drugs, alcohol, having sex and smoking cigarettes! Oh those poor corrupted souls...this is what we should do to keep our children healthy and pure..." etc. etc. You know the deal.
So us, illustrators, make an interesting image about the teenage brain so people could look at it and think "Hey! That's a cool picture, now I just gotta read this article!"

Well, anyhow I'm glad this is done. My next assignment is to make an illustration based on a story about a guy who wakes up one morning to find out he turned into a human-sized cockroach.
Also I seem to have a new approach to this semester. I'm actually putting a lot of effort and care into my work. Compared to the last few semesters I feel like the majority of my work has been half-assed and quickly done.

Of course now that all I'm really doing is working, I don't feel like a rebellious teenage college student anymore, but more so like a middle-aged woman doing her job. Oh dear, I feel so old.

Innocence Causes Agony

Just finished editing this. For one of my classes we had to portray corruption of the financial economy on Wall street.

Here are some close ups-
All india ink, and some minor photoshop editing to get rid of the white-out clumps.
I'm pretty happy with this piece. I spent 8+ hours on it the night before it was due. No joke.

I'm pretty good at finishing things last minute. But I should really manage my time better.

Also much thanks to Meg and Marissa posing as dead people for me so I could get good reference and facial expressions! Yay!

Hey, it's March!

I finally scanned in a lot of my things. Over 40 images that I'll spread between posts...

But for now, enjoy these quickies. No, they're not masterpieces, but hopefully they'll be amusing to your eyes.

Over my winter break, there was a little underwear fiesta going on at Union Square. This doesn't surprise me.
My biggest regret is not bringing my camera...

Hey! Wind-up dolls! I like them. I also like this song- Wind-up Doll by Little Peggy March
It's a very cute 1960s kind of makes me like wind-up dolls. You should to.

Also, I'm dumb and don't know how to post youtube videos to this blog. If anyone knows, tell me how...
