Pacino and Strummer

2 realistic portraits in graphite.
Joe Strummer, 1st attempt at realism (not too satisfied with this, especially because his hair looks highlighted)

Al Pacino, 1st attempt (i like this one much more)
both are graphite on printer paper, i messed with the levels in photoshop to up the contrast.

Are You Afraid?

My final editorial design project, paired with Alison Schantz as my designer. i really liked how these illustrations turned out, they are both pencil and digital.

Bound in Leather

5x7," mixed media
i actually used tattoo ink to paint some of this, it works really well on moleskine and doesn't make the paper buckle like acrylic or watercolor.
i've been pretty sick for the past few weeks, which explains my lack of updates. this piece i churned out in a few hours to meet a deadline for a show it's going to be in.
