I can believe it has almost been a year since i have posted last. One assignment & project after another, it got harder to stay on top of updating you on my artwork and what "current" project I was working on  a year ago.  I will start by sharing my first assignment in of this new semester at UVU in advance illustration with Howard Fullmer.  This assignment was titled "cult of Personality"

This piece was for my digital painting 1 class with Howard fullmer. We had to play off of the story of  "the 3 bears" and illustrate in a unique way. I decided to do a play off of the Chicago Bears players, Brandon Marshall, Jay Cutler, and Brian Urlacher. I approached this illustration a little bit different than I was used to.

This was another assignment given in by Will Terry's digital painting class. I had a lot of fun coming up with this idea and painting it. One rule that I will always remember from Will, is to always have a strong sketch before you start painting. I spent a lot of time coming up with a strong idea and sketch for this assignment that when it came to laying in the color, It was very easy to know what colors and what my values were.

I was also able to get this illustration into the Utah Valley University Student show that happens in the spring. I was so pleased with how it all turned out!

This project was in also in my conceptual illustration class. we had to take a news article and illustrate a idea in a non-offensive way. During the time this article was given, the Boy Scouts of America was in the spotlight, excepting Homosexuals as part of their organization. This illustration I enjoyed a lot, I was able to see how to illustrate a serious matter and tie it with fun concepts.

This project was a lot of fun to do. totally different style that what I normally do. The guidelines for this assignment was to only use hard edges and flat shapes to illustrate a story.
