Weird watercolors. Sorry for the long lapse in posts! These images are from a long-term project I’m working on - a children’s book about a sea captain who makes soup in her sleep. I’m really just learning watercolor so I’m enthralled with discovering new techniques, etc.

An ink line drawing from a series of sketches I’m doing about a short story called Mrs. Midnight. I’m taking a class about creating a style guide for animation :) In this scene the main character Danny, a washed-up journalist in modern-day London has a run-in with his alter-ego from Victorian London in an alley. The image is supposed to show the two worlds bleeding together..

This is a sketch of an 19th century theater using ballpoint pen, watercolor, and pencil lines (no paths but inverted in Photoshop). I made this for a class in visual development for animation by Assaf Horowitz at CDA. We were assigned stories and had to create a visual style for a hypothetical animation about the story. In this scene a cross-dressing vaudevillian character called Mrs. Midnight is about to perform for a drunken audience and things will go badly :) i was trying to make this scene look surreal and ghostly, as the performer has discovered a path to immortality through eating animal brains haha. The theater is supposed to look vaguely baroque. #ballpoint #pen #drawing #sketches #ink #animation #concept #design #instartist #art #illustration #narrative #art #storytelling

Here are some sketches of a concept for a fancy jacuzzi with water wall designed by my illustrious friend Chris Nelson. He is smart, hilarious, multi-talented, and a millionaire. Consequently, he wants to build a huge $150,000 hot tub in the pool area of his loft building downtown haha. So I sketched up this concept using ballpoint pen and colored pencil, and shaded it in photoshop as is my usual strategy at work. One interesting challenge was to represent the board-formed concrete elements, which may or may not be very readable. But cool idea anyways!

Here’s one of about a dozen small gifs I made for the WET mobile website (it’s where I work!). I started with an illustrator drawing by a talented co-worker Jennie Lee. Then I brought it into After Effects and hand-keyed the curves :) This was essentially a short fun project but I might do some more down the road.

Here’s a quick iPhone capture of a little experiment with bubbles and projection that I’ve been working on. The Kinect data is captured using Daniel Schiffman’s kinect library: shiffman.net/p5/kinect/ The projections were created in Processing from scratch.
