So I'm trying something a little new for the blog for the new year. I've done some product drawings for magazines as freelance work, but I realized it might be a nice way to link fashion and illustration, which is what this blog mostly focuses on. Here are some quick sketches of a few things I got for Christmas that have all quickly become my holiday necessities.

Another final down! This time the assignment was to design a skateboard. I hand painted the board in black acrylic around the type so you could see the woodgrain.
The board is for a friend and the type was inspired by the Wetboys, a group of skaters from Denver.

One of my finals for this semester was to either take something large and make it very small or take something small and make it very large. I though I was being smart by making something small, smart also meaning lazy. But no. My masochistic tendencies came out once again and I dove head first into creating an entire mini dream office full of all my favorite things; mid century accents, Need Supply's Human Being Journal, a mini version of Jessica Hische's Type Rug and lots o' cacti. I really hate myself for doing this to myself (yes those are individual floor boards), but all in all I'm pretty siked about the outcome. Enjoy my misery!
