The finished version of a sketch I've been watching gather dust; I love how it turned out.

See, sometimes my nights are filled with more than just dreams. Ideas careen and crash into my skull and force their way out in the middle of the night. Sometimes it's story ideas, sometimes it's changes to a current project or sometimes it's semi-prophetic block quotes. I used to just ignore them or laugh and roll over to return to sleep. Now I'm getting the feeling that some of these ideas are much more precious than a few more minutes under the sheets. So although the never ending list continues to grow at an alarming rate, at least I know I'll never be bored because I'm backlogged with projects till the apocalypse and beyond.

I posted a sketch of the top guy awhile ago and I finally finished him up. The second guy is based on a conversation I was eavesdropping into. These were a blast to do and maybe someday I'll produce more strange snippets of conversations (I can already feel some ideas leaking onto the list).

I'm in the process of re-evaluating this blahg's existence and purpose... In the mean time, whatever!

Here's some older sketches!

BFA week four

Typrojeckt Progress & Test Booklet!

This week from the Hobbit Hole! The first two pages from the Typrojeckt P&T Booklet. The first one is a watercolor and ink piece based on Olicana Smooth and it says 'making soy milk'. The second page is an ink and water piece that says 'reading' and 'homework' in my own handwriting and then 'Typographic time out' based on St Friska.

The Typographic Progress and Test Booklet is my little sketch/idea book I made for myself to fill up with color/font/style tests for my BFA project (more information coming soon). Plus I get to draw fonts and do typographic watercolors as homework! Yes!

oh, and I guess I'll mention the shmicroblahg that appeared in the right sidebar over the weekend. I'll be updating this section with photos of art or food or whatevs from my phone. Maybe every once and awhile I'll mass my micros together for a mega micro blog, but now I'm thinking too much.

Concert at The Cave - Iji

Here's the live audio for Iji when they played at The Hobbit Hole not too long ago.

Anyway, things are going great on my end, not much to post about though (I suppose I could take pictures of my cooking or bread... or my sketchbook for art class...), but enough about me, how are you? I hope you're doing well!

Have a great day!

Going the Distance

And so it begins! Here's one of the progress bars I've made myself to tally the process of my 9 months project that is the Graphic Design BFA Exhibition.

I'm not going to spill the beans about the project to you interneters just quite yet. I'll be posting process photos as they come and I'll reveal my secret plans bit by bit.
I'm betting my place is going to look no cleaner than this over the course of the project.

But here's how I feel about it:

Adventures of a M.O.D.E.L at a Marathon

Here's the article Tiffany wrote (for the Inlander!) about the 24 hour comic challenge! She persevered along with the rest of us and only left once to get her dog, Mr. Rufus.

Here's some more Jeremy for you because we could all use a little more Jeremy in our lives ;)

Colored Water

Been playing around with some watercolors in preparation for a couple upcoming projects.

Here's the original of the Ahvohcahdoe sketch and the bad chuck inks.

I don't think I posted it, but awhile ago Allen missed the bus and the Spokane comicon so I did a sketch for him. Later I did a digital version, so here's that:

Here's the digital version of the Avacado sketch.

man, I can feel school building up already. I'm thinking life is going to trump blog, but I'll post any interesting school work I've got or anything I've got the free time to play with.

24 Hour Comic Challenge!

I survived, last one to finish, 26 pages in 22 hours. Can't wait for next year!

Big thanks to Jeremy Whittington for letting me borrow his fresh Copics to ink all of my pages.

And it keeps going

So, last night (9 hours after the Comic Book Challenge ended) there was a Concert at the Cave! The Hobbit Hole was lucky enough to host the final show for Iji and Mega Bog's summer tour, and Harpo's last show for a good long while. Between those bands an awesome female fronted punk/hardcore band name Agatha played! The cave was rocked.

So, local band Harpo played their last show because this morning their guitarist Mitch (look up) took off for a trip with his good friend Captain Bones (Krista). They're hoping to eventually land at Chris Clavin's commune in Indiana. Best of luck! We love you and we'll miss you kids.

Interestingly enough, over the summer Mitch, Krista & Tony (Harpo's bass player) took me to see Iji and Mega Bog's summer tour kick off in Seattle! Beautiful, right? Totally. Know what else is beautiful? My neighbors came over to see the end of the show and give me two gallons of fresh pressed apple cider from their weekend adventure. I love life!

Someday there will be more goodies from this show to upload. For I think it's time to re-adjust to sleep and school.
