pull me inside out

final and sketches. the initial sketch has a male figure, but that was too masculine for the assignment, so i redrew as a female. BUT no one can tell it's a female, so i'll probably end up redrawing a third time... :{

Comic done for HATCH/Static Fish publication at my school.
It's based off of someone I knew last term, he never slept and this term he's disappeared. I wonder where he went and if he's okay.

Anyway, I am pretty displeased that when I ink with brush it looks totally different than when I ink with a pen. I am not sure which direction to take.

Oh my goodness, I am very excited to attend the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival.

Marc Boutavant

Yesterday my Children's Book Illustration class went to the Society of Illustrators to check out the current exhibit of... children's book illustrations! Wow!

My absolute favorite artist at the show was Marc Boutavant:

gotta have a disgruntled bear!

His website is here @HeartAgency
The images are fromMary Ann hoberman's site, Children's Illustration blog, RIFLE blog, and Stella1's photostream. I NEED to get my hands on my own copy of his books though...

Our class assignment was to pick out illustrations we liked and mark down the book publisher, then we find the contact/submission process of those houses. I'm still learning about the children's book industry, but I know for comics that someday I would love for my work to be mature enough to be published by Fantagraphics or Drawn and Quarterly.

Good morning!!!!!

one of eight tiny illustrations for my publishing/zine class. will post the others later along with photos of all the books I've been making! This is by far one of my favorite classes all term.

the bunny's names are Otis (hat) and Ceaser (smaller one), although i guess it doesn't really matter what they are named..? a friend of mine asked if they were me and my sister and I'm fine with that, too :) anyway I think they live on the moon or something.
