Moving out..

Blogspot's recent crazy where our images disappeared from our posts has left me feeling incredibly insecure. So I am moving out to Tumblr instead.

New blog:

Goodbye Blogger!

Crash Holiday

Some cover art for Crash Holiday. These are just one of the three ideas, but I feel they are the strongest. Still in progress.. almost finished.

99 Red Balloons

A piece I am working on for Canteen Gallery, and their upcoming group show. The theme, of the show, is the song "99 Luft Balloons." A couple of people that I went to Art Center with are also in this show, such as, Eunice San Miguel, Shannon Freshwater and Connie Wong.

I tried to illustrate the paranoia that existed in the story. Red balloons are being carried by clouds shaped like missiles in the air. Their collective paranoia which only exist in their imagination I tried to show through merged thought bubbles that imitate black smoke after a firey devastation. And their bodies made out of hands are to show their concern for their sense of security.

I don't know what I am going to title it, yet.

I just found out I misunderstood and it's not about the song, but an open concept that must include the theme of 99 red balloons.

1st page..

Gate fold..

Inside Gate Fold (4-fold spread)..

Last page..

Wrap Magazine. I did the illustration, Miguel Inuretta did the text, and Kurt Anderson did the writing. This term's magazine is about history repeating. Our page is about the idea of time/ history as a constant process of "blooming" and "withering."
We thought the best representation of this idea was the dandelion. The option of color was not available for this issue, and we were also challenged with the gate-fold format of the magazine (how page one transitions into page two, etc.) Overall, I like how it turned out.

Hair and nails.

This is an assignment for my fine art class, Rethinking Art, with Tom Laduke (he looks like Moby/ Billy Corgan.) The assignment was to create an unconventional self-portrait. This is a collection of nervousness, doubt, worry, etc. The nest is made entirely out of my hair. I didn't use anything to hold it together, just a whole lot of patience. And the nails are from some of the people who I specifically worry about.
I'm sorry about the lighting, I planned on taking a photo of it with the gallery lighting during class but when I came back they were moved.. and I am only so tall.

I had a lot of fun with this. When I have the time, I want to make a more accomplished version of it.

This is the right lung of the Marta portrait piece. I just like the composition here.

Disease so far

Based on this article I read about how you can find evidence of cardiovascular disease through hair. Still in progress.. and my camera sucks a little bit. I can't seem to get that little grease area out of the lens.

Someday I will have better photos. Someday..
