This is my illustration for our Fable project. I chose the Icelandic myth telling the story of when the King of the Danes sent a wizard to Iceland on a scouting mission for invasion, but the wizard encountered the "landvættir", the protectors of the land. You can read the story here. Anyways, it's painted with gouache paint, a medium I'm still getting used to and not sure if I like or not...

These are two color thumbnails painted in gouache as well, for our next assignment, an editorial illustration. The final will be a little different, but with the same idea (future president Obama overlooking his new land on Pride Rock (from Lion King) (that's not an explosion on the right side, they're supposed to be clouds :P).

I had a nice thanksgiving, turkey and all. Only a few weeks left until Christmas break...
Finals are creeping up on us!

En Plein Air Painting

Hey. So Ed and I along with Raegan, Oscar and Poppy went Plein Air painting on thursday at Dolores Park. It was awesome! I did two pieces in oils. It was such a beautiful day, warm and sunny, and Dolores park has such a great view of SF. It was so much fun we're going again next thursday, possibly the beach this time. Anyone who wants to join us is welcome!
