I did a cover for Thomas Pynchon's postmodern opus Gravity's Rainbow. (even though I heheh, haven' finished reading it quite yet. But you should pick it up, its great.) I used gouache for the first time in a long time and found it quite nice. I did the lettering by hand too which is probably why they are so messy (oh well, apologies.)
A "Poster" for David Cronenburg's Videodrome. Not one person in my class had seen the movie. You probably haven't either. Its probably for the best when one considers the side effects it can have upon the mind.
This is a real quick watercolor drawing I did several weeks ago for a postcard assignment. It's got a few too many of the same values going on and the lettering is rather lamentable but there wasn't much light in the catacombs to paint by (Yuck Yuck Yuck)
The tale of Orpheus is a classic Greek tragedy of descent into the underworld. For me, it was a descent into madness. The project involved countless hours of minute scribbling until my hand knotted into arthritis and I could scribble no longer. Some are more finished than others, But I would like to fix them up soon. Also I will learn to play the lyre. Chicks dig the lyre.
Not sure about the color, just something I need to further consider
I love books, don' t you love books? I love books. Books is good stuff. You know what is a book? The Wasp Factory is a book, and I designed a cover for it in my hand letters class. Because it's so strange and unsettling I decided to make the letters out of matchsticks. In other news, working with matchsticks is a pain in he ass.
Its an odd little tome, a bildungsroman of sorts set amid the misty banks of Scotland. Extremely polarizing, but probably a must read if juvenile delinquency and uncanny castration are your thing.
