When I moved into my apartment, there were just pennies all over my room. I have no idea why.

The Agent

While I had a studio space, this was hanging on my wall. I drew this to have something to hang on my wall, if I'm being perfectly honest (sorry about the quality, no scanner).

I'd like to get better at caricature.

Brass Rhino/Radio City

From Entrepreneurship (if there's one thing that class has taught me so far, it's how to spell 'entrepreneurship').

I just can't get over how delightful this video is. Admit it. You knew it was going to be good when you saw all those ladies lifting up their skirts. I like to think of it as a companion to the classic FOTC ditty, Sugar Lumps.

it wouldn't be illustration without...

...Edward Cullen and friends. Work from last semester. A supposed editorial illustration for an article we were given about one woman's search for the Balkan roots of vampire mythology. Oh how far we have come from this:
