Lack of Motivation

For my thesis at SVA MFA Illustration I am creating a series of short stories, and making a single conceptual image for each. When I say short I mean 500-2000 words short. Anyway, here is a set pieces about my sisters lack of motivation. Out of the 25 sketches I sent my advisor, I really liked four of the sketches and went straight to finish. After discussing the pieces my advisor, we came to agree that they aren't there yet in concept, though they are nice images in whole.

We Sell Tiny Tigers!

Hey everybody! I'm being selfish and putting my own work up. That's right, MY work. There's no I in team but there is ME if you move the letters around a bit...

...ok. As some of you may know, in Tomer's class we have to pick a topic and do 4 Illustrations for it. I went with the Man Eating Tigers in India in the early 1900's. Here's the first one:

And here's a crazy gif I made with it and the two color palettes I was playing around with. It's like it's 3d or somethin'!

Check out and/or follow my blog:

If you want to read more about the tigers:

And since I feel bad about being selfish, I'll share a cool site with you guys! If you haven't checked out the New York Public Library Digital Gallery, you really should. It has a TON of old photos and drawings that haven't seen the light of day in years. You can search the craziest things and you'll get images for them. Here are some cool examples:

Man, beginning of the third week...take it easy Father Time!

So before I got really gross and, for the most part, inappropriate, I did consider a career in Children's Book Illustration, but its a tough place to navigate. Personally, I like to believe all children are minions of evil and shouldn't be given too much credit when it comes to being innocent, but eh, we all have our own ideas on that topic.

Anyway, I'm no longer interested (MAYBE), but I came across an amazing blog for those of you who may still be! Curious Pages explores children's books that straddle the line between safe and controversial; the ones most of us go back to now and have that double take moment... know, like when you first REALLY understood that Spice Girl's song you always sang as a baby.

I felt like I needed to contribute somethingggg

So, I myself enjoy people watching. A lot. These images below are all from my current sketchbook. All of the drawings (individually) are pretty quick direct 45seconds-2min drawings with a ballpoint pen. Yeah I tried to be all fancy and set up lighting for the images, I know I'm retarded. Boobs. Also be kind and text "yele" to 501501 on your cell phones to donate 5 bucks to all those people who are in a crap ton of heartache over in Haiti. They need it. And if your curiouso check out Urban Sketchers (which I am a member of :]) to check out a fund raiser they did using location drawing on a poster to raise awareness.

-P.S. everyone should be reminded the Society of Illustrators student competition deadline is like January 27th so get on it!
