west grace

i had a bit of spare time, so i went to the top floor of a parking garage and drew stuff.
30 minutes into this, i realized the person at the bottom right table was a good friend of mine, called her, and reminded her that i am her creepiest friend.

because i just can't let go, and these drawings are excellent to build on, i'm doing a series of screenprints of my rooftop drawings from europe. this was the first version of #1, a three layer print. i've changed some things now, but i still like how this turned out.

cast lineup

concept drawing is tied for my favorite class this semester. we had to design a cast of 5 characters based on a folktale selected by my professor. this was REALLY FUN and i'm super bummed that this is going to be my only semester to do this kind of work.
