So I'm still down here at the Illustration Academy working my ass off, and it's been an incredible time so far.  Here is a small update of what I've been up to, work wise.  Sorry for the crappy photos.  I'll try and get these scanned soon.

This assignment, given by Jon Foster, was a portrait of a fictional literary character.  I chose to do one of Hester Prynne from Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter.  (acrylic and oil on board, 11x16.5")





and the drawing


This assignment, which was given by Gary Kelley, was to have us illustrate anything of our choosing that dealt with a given color.  We each picked a random color out of a bag, and whatever color we got would be our next assignment for that week.  I, unfortunately, picked the color orange, which was the one I wanted the least.  I had so many images in my head for the other colors, and absolutely none for orange.  Needless to say, I had some trouble coming up with a concept for this one, but I guess I'm happy with where it ended up.  I love koi fish.  (acrylic and oil on board, 12x18")



This one was given by C.F. Payne.  The assignment was a conversation of some kind between two people.  It had to be from the sternum up (I sorta tip-toed around that one), and the conversation had to be pretty easily understood through the narrative.  (watercolor, acrylic, and colored pencil on board, 13x13").

This is an exceptionally awful photo of the piece.




And a couple of 15 minute pastel figure drawings.

thanks! yea, I've been using reference for all the figures since I've been here at the academy. It's highly encouraged (almost mandatory) to shoot reference for everything. It's helping out a lot though.

Jeremy! Brilliant work! Genius! Wow!

Did you get my e-mail? And what's this I read about you being in Florida?! Any chance you'd let me come with my video camera and shoot a short film about you and your work? I'm totally serious. Have camera, will travel.

hey man, i just recently got your email, but haven't gotten a chance to respond yet. I've been extremely busy since I've been down here for the illustration academy. I'm not sure I'll have the time to do the short film because I only have 6 more days and we still have our last assignment due the very last day of academy, and then the partying begins before my flight back home hahah. but i'm extremely flattered that you'd want to shoot a film about my work!

:O

Wow, what an incredible set of work here! I'm in love with all of it!

Your koi piece is my favourite - the colours are incredible, I love the warm shadows! Your approach to doing the water also seems simple but elegant.

Thanks heaps, I got a lot from these :) Look forward to seeing more!

Really nice update, my favorite piece is the one with the fish and how brilliant is the lady screaming at the cop, although there are some things that kind of bother me. Her right arm is too simple in contrast to the other skin tones, I think it needs a bit more work and it's a bit weird that her left hand is bigger then the right, even though it's further away from us, for the rest great job. You really got the scales of the fish right, the way the light reflects off them.
