Too much work! Not enough blogging!
Here's a fun one:
Found this while going through some stuff I did during my first (and only) year at LCAD. It was an assignment from the Intro. Illustration class where we had to cross an animal and some form of machine...but we had to reference both from life, ie-bring our chosen subjects in to class and spend time drawing each one (which can put a limit on the subjects to choose from). Spending a class drawing snails and taking apart an old Walkman was a lot of fun...probably my favorite class that year :)
