This was for Lifestyle Illustration. The assignment was to create a spread depicting a tourist destination. We had to use multiple images illustrating landmarks, attractions, and cuisine, and dress the tourists in designer clothing from Style.com. It was a real challenge and a lot of work, but I'm quite pleased with the result!

My love of Scooby-Doo hasn't really diminished since I was a kid. I figured I couldn't be alone in this, so I decided to update the Scooby Gang to appeal to now-grown-up fans such as myself.
I latched onto Daphne and Velma specifically. Velma has always been my favorite, but I think Daphne always seems to get the short end of the stick, personality-wise. In recent years she's been portrayed as being one of the more physically adept of the group, however, so I decided to run with that and make her a tough-as-nails hitman/bodyguard for the group, and specifically Velma.
Velma's awesome, but has certainly never displayed much physical prowess. Hence, the Brains and the Muscle, with Daphne having to cover for Velma while she carries out her harebrained hacking schemes.
I'll get to the men eventually, but I like what's going on with these two right now.

This is for a Maps assignment in Junior Illustration. Sometimes an art student just has to draw some blood and guts.
Kali Ciesemier is another of my uber-talented and inspiring teachers here at MICA this semester. For our first Lifestyle Assignment, we were told to choose unusual jobs and illustrate that job to look fashionable and attractive using designer clothes.
"Gumologist," or a gum taste tester
Tanning butler, who is employed by resorts to rub sunscreen on guests

This semester I'm super excited to have a class taught by none other than the fantastic Sam Bosma, especially since I'm such a fan of his art! Our assignment was pretty open-ended: make three pieces illustrating a hierarchy (sort of in the manner of Jack-Queen-King playing cards). I chose pirate bullfighters because of course I did.
