Hey, Here’s This:

I’ve been occupied. Sorry.

So here’s some stuff from my sketchbook:

My pen ran out of ink.

Some random page.

Close up of Antlerpus.

Imagination Flower.

I have a sick relationship with baked goods.

I have a lot of free time.

Like, tons.

Ok. I’ll be back later.

Bye.

This Is Limbo

So there I was, crusin around beautiful crime when I stumbled upon a unique artist:

Now this is my kinda art.

They do everything from 2D-3D and installation work.

I couldn’t find their name, probably because I was just fascinated with the work and didn’t look hard enough. All I found was their flickr account: thisislimbo

I’m pretty sure if my soul looked like anything, it would be these hooded characters that appear all through out their work.

Their medium of choice is cardboard, water color, string/yarn, and packing tape.

There is also this little bird character that appears in a lot of their work.

This was piece was made before the disaster in Haiti. Apparently they were tearing up a street and thisislimbo found it a perfect spot to make art.

They also include the phrase “know hope” in most of their pieces.

This is my favorite piece.

I dont have the link to their flickr account, but I’m sure if you search for thisislimbo, they will come up.

Go check them out.

Poor art student< Patterns< Macro Photography

Today interwebs, I wanna talk about patterns.

I’m in love with patterns and textures of all shapes and sizes.

This hair like, line one is in similar fashion of pen and ink work I do.

That’s probably why I think it’s so boss.

Unfortunately I could not find a full image of the completed print, but I thought this was beautiful.

More line patterness.

This photo is actually a macro image is of a dyed slice of an angler fish ovary. Odd, but bamf.

Continuing with the macro images, this is of a discus fish’s scales. It looks like someone put soda between thin, textured plastic or glass plates. Which is probably why I like it.

Any guess as to what that is?

A human sweat gland.

This hot piece of human tissue is the villi of your stomach.

And that, my friends, was patterns and macro photography. Sponsored by: no one. Cause I’m a broke ass art student, and nobody sponsors those.

And While I’m at it…

Oh yeah, I’ve also been busting my ass with FYI21:

Inside looking out. Text message courtesy of textsfromlastnight.com Come on, it’s not like I’m the alcoholic who comes up with this shit. My drunken witticisms are much clever.

Inside looking out.

THREAD AND PAPER-HANCE.

And on an unrelated note, here’s some pen and ink work I’ve done.

(That’s right, I’m uploading this stuff all in one shot.  So DEAL)

The white frame is incredibly distracting, yes I know this. Once finals are all over and my life calms the fuck down, I plan to fix it. Don’t you worry.

LION-HANCE!!

And this is how I almost killed myself. Hand-drawn exploded view of a Rollicord TLR camera.

This drawing officially makes me king of pen and ink.

Wanna know how I did it with out a computer? LOTS OF TRACING PAPER. I think I single handedly slaughtered a small nature reserve with all the tracing paper I used (and recycled!!!) I’ll plant some trees later to make up for it.

First Semester < or = Eight pounds of Clay

I’m feeling insane.

Here, let me prove it to you:

That’s Thomas. I sculpted him in my 3D Anatomy class. Sadly, I didn’t get very far. So I added a sweet bikini.

This is the back of him. I vaguely remember doodling a tramp stamp on this picture…guess it’s gone.

We did a second sculpture. They kept calling it an ecorche. I kept calling it a ferrero rocher.

Yeah, the back view is pretty smexy.

Now, here are some arty shots that make it look not as hideous to look at!

I have no explanation for this one.

Clean clay just got a little sexier…didn’t it?

And that’s what I learned in 3D Anatomy for illustrators.
