Just kidding, this is my last post for the weekend :p

Finished poster for my friend Courtney Hood's film Capture.  She documents children with different types of cancer, and how they're just little kids who want to play and have fun.  Each kid was given a camera to film their view of the world.

Learn more about the movie here :)

The Hiss of Hot Summer

Sketch #1 for the Southern View article "This Hiss of Hot Summer".  Woman picks up a snake instead of  a hose to water her garden, oh nooo!

Last post for the weekend, heading up to Jersey on Friday, but will be back Sunday :)  Peace, Arielle.

Here's my postcard mailer image so far!

     I was walking home from class the other day, and decided to take a shortcut through a church courtyard.  I was worried about picking an image to use for my mailers, and couldn't decide what I wanted to make.  My mind was racing trying to think of something, when I passed a column and saw a giant green lizard looking at me.  I froze and stared at him, and he immediately jumped onto my sketchbook.  That's when I realized that he was just what I was looking for.  He looked back up at me, and jumped away into a bush, just as quickly as he appeared.

A calling?  Maybe.  Inspiring?  Yes.  Sometimes it comes in the strangest places :)

Oh Wait, There's More!

And if you order before midnight tonight.....!

     Here's some jazz I've been working on today; a poster for SCAD's production of Dog Sees God, a play based on Charles Schultz's Peanuts characters.  Here's 3 variants of my sketch so far:

Unfortunately, my blogger background is white, so we'll have to use our imaginations to picture borders around these bad boys.  I hear the weather's supposed to be thundery tomorrow, pretty excited.

Sending Easter Eggs to loved ones and my Namesake to Mars

Lots of stuff going on this week; exams, mailers, visits, concerts, interviews, posters, sketches, deadlines, deadlines!  You know, the usual.  Oh, and Easter.  But not to worry, some deep breathes, pencils, and ink will allow everything to fall into place :) 

So while procrastinating, I made some Easter cards to send off to my family.

Haha ignore that ridiculous selection tool business around the edges, just wanted to give you an idea of how they look without my painty desk getting in the way :p

As another means of avoiding work, I shipped the name Arielle Katarina off  to Mars!  You can do the same with your name here, for a microchip that'll be sent on a rover to the red planet later on this year:   Found it via Twitter, pretty cool NASA, getting involved with social media.

Also, I got a chance to skype with illustrator Sterling Hundley today in class, via Doug Chayka.  He had a lot of positive things to say about becoming a freelance illustrator, but without any of the bullshit.  We all know it's tough at first, but everyone goes through it.  All the steps he advised to take seemed totally do-able, and made me feel much more confident in myself.  Besides life advice, he also does incredible work.  Check out his art here

Well that's all I got for ya today, time to get back to work.  Happy April 20th.

Animator for a Day

Well, sort of!  This week I did a background for the opening sequence of my friend Jose's animatic.  Something different to do, but fun.  Here's the process!

My cloud painting with a touch of digital

Jose's drawing 

Clouds edited into perspective

Clouds dropped into place!  Will be much brighter of course in the animatic, I left the teal background of the drawing in so it looks really warm and blue  :p
