Popcicle Stick Manatee

The Biggest Popcicle Manatee EVER!

This is a project from the Art Institute that I did for my form and space class.  We had to take a photograph of an animal that we drew out of a bucket, and make it using Popsicle sticks.  I could not believe how well it came out considering the shape and form of such a large sea creature I picked.  I began with forming the shapes of the body, and made cylinders in several different circumferences.  Once I got a body, I just thought of creative ways to add the limbs and face!  Voila, popsicle stick manatee!!!

A Day At The Zoo

The Zoo - Colored Pencil Sketches

This is a grouping of sketches I did for an assignment that required us to draw free hand, images from the zoo.  I really liked drawing these, because they were my real first attempt at drawing animals.  I had a few problems, and got a great laugh out of my first professor at Baker College.  She thought my rhino looked like it was starving to death, I agree!  I love the giraffe, and gator.  I think they have real personality coming through the pencil lines.

An Electrifying Idea – A Pig Story

Black Pen on Velum Paper Mounted on Foam Core and Black Board

This electrifying idea was part of an assignment to create 50 icon drawings of random things.  We were then to take those 50 drawings and  choose 10 and then concept a story and show it in a creative way.  I choose my pig, fish, snake, toaster, apartment building, city scape, sun, a brain, a tree and flowers.

My Initials Illustration

Initials Project – Illustrative Concept Design

This project was a part of my illustrative concept design class work.  It is pencil on white board and the originals are 4×6.  The assignment was to take our initials and give them action.  R is being rolled, L is lazing down the river, and P is popping out of a cake.  We assembled our drawings into a little book of initials, and we bound it ourselves.  This was my first experience in applied drawing.  My professors always say I have a quirky and unique vision in my illustrations.
