Digital Life Painting

Some assorted paintings from Digital Life with Cliff Neilsen last term from the models in class, I freaking adore this class, and wish I had been painting in PS from live models the whole time I've been at Art Center. There was some interested discussion with the Illustration Chair a couple weeks ago about the possibility of getting a painting workshop in the vein of Cliff's class implemented with pretty strong support among the students from Entertainment Arts there. The workshop would in all likelyhood have the same attendance requirements as the other campus workshops to let his class have more time painting the figure and everyone else more chances at working with the technology in a more direct and traditional way. But depending on what kind of technology was being brought in by students vs supplied by campus will very likely dictate some additional requirements.


Tree House

Some work I did last in the spring based on the prompt of a boat wrecked on an island with the kids having built a tree house out of the wreckage. Color palette is informed off of a desire to push it towards the conclusion of the story, starting out with an escape from a pirate ship with stolen treasure and a climactic action occurring during the flight when their escape boat gets destroyed in a storm and the two kids must struggle to remain together throughout. Will try and get the other images up soon. This is one of the projects I was trying to start pushing a narrative arc into and start working on my storytelling as conveyed by images a lot more.
