Art Critiques

Based off a thumbanil crit between my teacher Mark Tocchet and fellow student Doug Krueger.

Just Hangin' Out With Rachel Lesser

BTW, these are all based on real conversations gone awry.


Beware. I take stereotypes and maul them.

I'm horrible. Hyuk hyuk.

And I finally had an epiphany of what direction I want my art to go in... and mediums to use. Holy freaking crap. Big thanks to looking at Jimmy Tierney's process and newfound teacher Tim Gough for showing me channels and working with just line and stuff.

Posters all the time

Yeah, a text update to just tell you all what's to come because I'm pretty excited.
So, school's begun and it's already relentless. School assignments both being posters; one's a band poster (I'm doing Neutral Milk Hotel even though they don't exist anymore), and a poster for the free library fest (which my new teacher Tim Gough did the real poster for).

But what I'm super excited about: My friend Lauren Monaco over at NYU contacted me to do another band poster-- this time for MAN MAN, one of my favorite bands, on March 4th. Fucking killer. Hopefully this'll be much better than the Atlas Sound one, especially since I'm actively being taught about poster art making.

So I'll probably be updating with the Neutral Milk Hotel thumbnails soon cause I really like them.

I think this is the first band poster I've done.
Lauren wanted it to be a mind fuck essentially; a 'bad trip', and everything to be completely filled. Whew.
Bird god and cherub godlings are afoot.

And of course blogger rapes the shit out of the color and resolution. A lot of the crispness is lost. Sigh.

And word from Lance, he definitely received my pin-up and it will be published in the Seduction of the Innocent book sometime in April. It's currently going through the editorial process-- how exciting, amirite? There is supposed to be a lil blurb about me (and all of the other respective artists) towards the end I think. Heh. I'm such a no name.
