Latest Coloring page

I drew this on the back of the box I packed Ang's Nostromo jacket in. I scanned it in in B&W so there would be a colorable version for her and all you loonies out there. I colored mine with Prismacolor markers and a red colored pencil. What will you use to color yours?

Some School stuff I never posted

Here are some projects I did in school last semester that I forgot to put on the blog at the time. They were both done in my Narrative Illustration class, taught by Bethanne Andersen. The Peter Pan cover represents an assignment consisting of 15 illustration comps, 1 final illustration, plus front and back covers. This was my favorite piece from the series. I played around with some coloring on it, I might post some of those experiments later. The Richard III poster went through several phases, with this being the final. I designed it with screenprinting in mind, hence the simple line work and color scheme. I wasn't trying to replicate the work of Coop or Kozik on this poster, but I did have their posters in mind when conceiving of the layout.

Ang's Birthday Present

My major side project over the past several months has been recreating the crew jacket of the Nostromo (from the original Alien movie) for Angela's birthday. It was pretty tough finding the correct jacket (vintage RAF mk3 Cold Weather jacket, in case you are looking) and getting it shipped over from the UK, but it was worth it. The patches are available online, and then I found some pink bias tape for the collar piping, and hand drew and cut a stencil for the back lettering, using stills from the film as reference. I also dyed the jacket with blue pigment to try to cut back on the olive of the green and get it a little darker and a little grayer. She liked it, so I was happy.
