DEDICATION Iâ€™d like to dedicate this to Jebus. I drew him once, and he had thorns on his head. And bleeding. But I never forget his birthday.

Illustration I is a course in which only black and white can be used, with an emphasis on technique and skill. Essentially, the basics.
Coin The coin project was to determine everyoneâ€™s level in 4 areas: cross-hatching, stippling, line work, and shading. Each coin was broken up into quadrants, and a specific technique was applied to each.
Product Illustration This project is one of two in which two objects were selected and each rendered as realistically as possible. Only one technique could be used on each. This key chain uses stippling.

Psychological Evaluation This project was based on our own psychological journey through a story. It was cool. One scene was that of a cup dangling from a long vine. When I touched it, it shattered right before my eyes.
As hard as she looked, she could find it nowhere... In this assignment, every student had to pull our a random tag line from a bin, and illustrate it. Perspective was used to emphasize the rabbit on the ceiling fan, showing how close it was, yet still far away.
Lilâ€™stratorâ€™s Avatar This project is one of two in which two objects were selected and each rendered as realistically as possible. Only one technique could be used on each. This is key chain uses stippling.
Cartooning is a course in which characters were developed, as well as reinforcement of color theory and different styles of cartooning.
Caricatures These exercises caricatured famous political figures using a brush pen. Features were exaggerated to simply the faces, but still leaving each recognizable.
Marker Exercises These exercises were to practice and utilize the marker as well as reinforce color theory. The three shown here are complementary, primary, and monochromatic.
Marker Exercises These marker exercises were done within a short period of time (15-20 minutes, or even less). As the exercises progressed, colored pencils were added.
Portrait Quiz Students were to take a photograph of themselves, only showing a portion of the face, and were to use it to render with marker in a short amount of time. A complimentary color scheme of reds and greens were used.
Character Development Throughout the course of Cartooning, each student was to develop a character; a hero or a villain. Archetypes were discussed, and character sketches were created.
Trading Card Image / Conflict With the developed hero (or villain), students were to create a trading card image (top) and a scene where his/her character were fighting.

Illustration Studio is an independent class students may take to build their portfolio. Everything was left open, even medium.
Pirate Series - Pirate Girl This illustration was originally done as an avatar for the Facebook group Skuuurvink! However, it was expanded into a series, as follows in the next pages.
Pirate Series - Piggy This illustration became the second addition to the pirate series, with big henchmen pig serving as a clue to as how the first girl ended up in the box.
Pirate Series - Robot Pirate This illustration became the third and final addition to the pirate series. A cold and calculating looking pirate serves as the villain to this story.
Hair Series - Process For this assignment, an illustrator was chosen and his/her style emulated in some way (such as color, line quality, etc.). The illustrator chosen was McBess, and the theme of hair was used to unify the five characters together.
Hair Series - Process Since McBessâ€™s style consists predominantly of black and white ink work, the rapidiograph was used. As this would later be incorporated as part of a package design, frames were added to unify the set.
Hair Series The final ink work of the hair series, done in 5x7. The backgrounds were further developed to emulate McBessâ€™s style further, as well as to provide each character with his/her own environment.
