P.S. I had an older post about how I was hired by the Michigan Daily to do illustrations once a week for a section called 'On the Cheap'. I usually draw out the image, ink it, then scan and color it in photoshop. Unless I watercolor it first. The newspaper doesn't print in color, so I make the image black and white before I e-mail it to them so I get the contrast I want. Here are a few of the newer images that were published.
Is amaing. Just want to say. I discovered her when I was leafing through the book Over and Over, which is all about hand drawn patterns. Her work is gorgeously detailed, I especially love her pen and ink drawings of feathers. Check out her amazing portfolio at http://www.thequietrevolution.co.uk/

These are some illustrations that I did for the book 'Rabbit's Costume' written by Lizz Martin, an English major here at U of M. Unfortunately I still have trouble understanding image size/resolution, so the book printed out very pixelated. The illustrations were made using pen and ink on denril, scanning them, and coloring in photoshop. The overall style is very simplistic, which I feel I need to work on a lot more in order to be successful.

Egon Schiele makes my life. I'm doing studies of a couple of his paintings in my watercolor class, I'll post them once they are finished. I love his use of color, as well as the way he draws and distorts the figure. The first study is one of Max Oppenheimer, the second has yet to be decided upon.
