Spot Illustrations

Here are a few spot illustrations for Editorial painting that I had to do a week ago, they're based on facts  and statistics from Harpers Magazine.

Factor by which the rate of dolphin death during this period exceeds the average: 4

Number of native-born Italians living in Manhattan’s Little Italy, according to the 2010 Census: 0
Of native-born Chinese: 3,127

Keep on Keepin' on

A little ink drawing I did the other evening, decided to scan it in and throw some color in it. It's titled Keep on Ramblin'

Dungeon Master

This one took a couple days, about a day for the line work, and a day for color shadow and that jazz. Was a challenge over at trying to build the courage to post on their website, it's intimidating.

Hot Hot Heat

   Have a pretty nice amount of things to post been drawing as much as I can over summer, have some sketches and a piece that I started and finished today, I'm planning on posting more often (said that before) but this time I will try my best and will be doing more work. first up are some sketches that i've been working on in the past month and some over my vacation.

"Ink, paper"
Was looking up images of a wolf on my phone and found this guy, sparked interest so I drew him, took about 40 minutes.

"Ink, paper"
When swimming on vacation we found a frog in the pool so we helped him out of the pool and named him pickles, then I remembered one of my friends worked at a golf course and how occasionally they would hit frogs with the weed whipper on accident because they were hidden in the weeds.
"Graphite, paper"
Just a doodle of an assassin.

"Graphite, pen, marker, paper"
Just started scribbling while at Pizza hut and it eventually turned into this.

"Graphite, paper"
The sisters, two images from a model website.

"Ink, digital"
This came up when i was looking at greek mythology and demons (I was up really late). I stumbled onto a demon called murmur who's symbol was a vulture, so I figured I would do a little illustration on it.

Traditional paintings

     Finishing out the year here at CCS and i've got some stuff to post. these are traditional pieces from different classes. I'll be posting some more of my digital work from Intro to Image making I.

"Flattery is alright so long as you don't inhale"
Graphite on paper

One of my favorite pieces of the year that I had created. We had to break a selected quote down and conceptualize on the quote for a little under two weeks, then go onto ideations and the finish.

"Someone you love but don't trust"
Oil with acrylic under painting

I enjoy the idea behind this painting a lot, few things that I wouldn't mind changing but I learned a great deal about oil paint from this piece.

Oil Life painting

Probably my strongest oil piece from this year, it was a life painting in Nancy Mitters Advanced Figure class. It was an excellent class learning a lot about color, and color theory.


I had taken a lot on what I learned from Nancy's class and Erik Olson's Illustration Tech II class. Painting a lot of thick layers and playing with a palette knife on the scarf. Painting of my friend Angelina Roncelli giving it to her for her birthday.
