Batman Bathroom Commission

See the full album at 
Done as a request/commission for a friend. One wall has the Gotham city skyline including the bridge, GCPD building, ACE chemicals, Wayne enterprises tower, the cathedral, Ferris wheel, Zoo, and botanical gardens. The police building has the Bat symbol coming from it leading onto the next wall. Above the door is a silhouette of Batman and Red Robin. 
oh... and yes... it is GLOW IN THE DARK!

Done for a friend who is (obviously) a huge batman fan and a great cosplay artist! Check out his cosplay at Just a Fan Cosplay ttps://www.facebook.com/justafancosplay

Random school doodles!

I doodled this zentangle for about an hour a week for the past 11 weeks while sitting in my modern art class. This is the final result of a whole school quarter of doodling!


left my mark at school today. the while in the lounge is a giant chalkboard. couldn't resist


Final work from the Character and Object Design class

For my character and object design class we had to create a character line-up, two creature designs, vehicle designs, and object/prop designs. We also had to include three expression sheets for one of our characters; one of facial expressions, hand studies, and a full body expression sheet. 

We had to base it off of Mary Shelley's Frankenstien. So here's my designed for the story of frankenstien!

Modern Art Final Project - Afremov recreation

My newest painting! I did this painting as my final project for my modern art class. It's my rendition/recreation of a Leonid Afremov painting. (no I did not design this, just imitated for the assignment). We had to create a piece of work inspired by an artist, movement, or art style. He is definitely one of my favorite living artists so I had to! He paints with oils and a palette knife, I used acrylics with a standard flat brush on a 30x30 canvas. 
Check out Afremov's work at https://www.facebook.com/leonidafremovofficialpage

1 Peter 1:8 Ink Drawing


Another Zentangle drawing! Inspired by a recent bible study with a good friend. The words around the cross say:

"Although you have not seen Him, your love Him. Even though you do not see Him, you believe in Him and are filled with and inexpressible and glorious joy!
- 1 Peter 1:8
