Surface Design Exploration: Cowboy Wallpaper

One of my teachers recently suggested that I try some surface design.  I decided to give it a go and made some cowboy themed wallpaper for boys.  It took me a while to figure out how to make a repeat pattern, but I found a great video on youtube here. I had a lot of fun making this and hope to make more mock designs soon on other things such as pajamas, bed spreads, and more.

Illustration Department Triennial

This past Thursday was the opening reception for RISD's Illustration Department Triennial show at Woods-Gerry Gallery.  I was very pleased to see that one of my watercolors was chosen as part of the show.  It is a self portrait of me in my lacrosse goalie gear.

Comics- Ligne Claire

For my comics class assignment we had to create a comic in ligne claire style.  'Ligne claire' means 'clean line' in French and was made popular by HergĂ©, creator of Tintin.  In this style only line is used to show the story with no hatching, value, or color.

Here are a few panels from my comic.  Enjoy!
