Some Avengers just didn't make the cut!

The geek cred is going through the roof at the moment...

Marvel DC Crossover

Everyone likes a super lady. Will possibly add Batwoman in the back....

Nick Character Design Class

At Nick, I had the awesome opportunity to participate in a character design class taught by Joel Fajnor. What everyone ended up with in class was something that was either dog like or cat like, complete with turns and expressions. To show off the evolution of my particular pooch, the earliest versions will be towards the top, and the finished product will be at the bottom.
I think I'll give the guy a coat of color soon enough :)

Vector Art

I did this a while ago during my quest to get better at illustrator and vector art, so here they are now - released from the vault of forgotten things in forgotten folders! The design is mine, and it was meant to be applicable to a grid-style online/mobile game.

Thank You Cards!

Had a great (and super busy) time interning at Nickelodeon! Here are some thank you cards I made for my couple of supervisors, as well as a card I made for my fellow intern :)

Just Having Fun :)


I've been meaning to do this for a while. I love 16 bit games, so pixel art has always been something I'd like to try. Of course, the first thing I'd doodle is my dog, Blanca. The wagging thing is just a test of the software (I used Pixen to make the sprite and animate it). It's not as intuitive as I would have hoped, but I am sure I could get the hang of it.

Super Pug!

Whenever I try to draw cute, it often just turns out to be quirky.

Super Ladies

Another "just for fun" thing I somehow worked into a school project. Not my characters, of course. Wondy = DC, She Hulk = Marvel. They are cut-outs because they were pasted into a collage.

Space Babe

I can't believe I actually turned this in as homework a year ago.... the things you can get away with... Maybe one of these days I should actually finish it.

Trying Something New...

Well, I've finally come to realize that I may have to know how to use Illustrator for a job, so I decided to do some tutorials to get acquainted with Illustrator. It made me realize how much it can actually do (and how little I knew about it). The results of a well-executed piece can be pretty clean and nice!

The tutorials I did are from this website:

6 Parts of Myself Painting

In Baron Storey's class, there is an assignment that focuses on creating 6 characters that are each a part of you, and putting them into an environment where they would all meet. So I guess this is what it looks like in my head! It is still a work in progress (notice the white spots), but I like it too much to not post something. It is india ink and watercolor on watercolor paper. Also included is a horrible phone photo of the line work I started with.

Charcoal Reversals!

This is a self portrait done in charcoal a VERY long time ago (I had blond streaks in my hair!), but I still enjoy it. The word I was trying to convey was "idyllic".

And this is me blatantly copying a famous photograph by Lewis Hine. This was done before the portrait to get the "reversal blood" flowing.

Marcovaldo: The Garden of Stubborn Cats

Inspired by the 101 Dalmatians style, here's my latest project for BFA!

A little plein air

Just to show that I do, on occasion, get out, here is a small painting I did at a park I didn't even know existed next to my house.
