Goldfish, Lip Gloss and Addiction

For this project we were given a class photo from a 1970's yearbook. We had to write a story and create an illustration for it, however we were not allowed to include the person from the photograph. My story was about a girl who had no friends except her goldfish and became addicted to lip gloss as a desperate attempt to fit in.

Sketch #1 and Sketch #2- I really liked the first one with the glasses on the desk, sadly it was the first one that was rejected. Sketch #2 I thought was blah.
 This was the Sketch that Taxali chose for my final. It was my second choice and I figured I could do more with it and stay true to my original sketch.

This was my ink drawing for my final. I wanted to do it without digital help, however when I began to paint it with water colour, I really messed it up. Thank Jesus I scanned it before I painted on it, but it meant finishing the colour digitally. 
In the end I was pleased with the final, but I only got 72%. Oh well, c'est la vie!

Bjork Portrait

Sketch for portrait assignment for Taxali's class. This was the final. Not entirely happy with it. I liked the birds in the sketch and the spacing better. The colour is more vibrant in person, my camera and photoshop skills couldn't match it.

I heart animals

Poster I did for my graphic design class last semester. We had to make an event poster so I chose to do The Royal Winter Fair so I could draw some animals. I was very happy with how it turned out, which is rare.

It is time

Decided today I would start a blog for my illustration. I hope this can be a place to display and get feedback about my work. I'm currently in my second year at OCAD taking illustration in the Faculty of Design.
