I'm back at home, away from a nice big scanner and most of my stuff, so here's some older stuff that I've worked on but didn't have a blog to post them on at the time. All of these are from my junior year

Count Chocula Remake

WPA poster remke

And finally, an old idea but also a preview for my next semester thesis: Werewhale

Put it up on th big board

So I installed google analytics the other day and have since been checking it all too often, it has also inspired me to try and collect and catalog all of my site hits. So far: Maryland, Delaware, and New York. Interestingly enough, not Kentucky, my home state, where my parents live and apparently spend all of their time not loving me and not coming to my blog.

I've got the CD cover, now all I need is the talent

I recently watched Nerdcore Rising, if I were I were a Nerdcore rapper my name would be MC CMYK and this would be my CD cover, "MC CMYK" is a side project of my other fictitious band "Cotton Gin N' Tonic"

I got flatbed scanners, values and tones

I will be attempting to parody every line of Beck's "Where It's At" in these sketch updates

Harry Potter must die

My submission for Alyssa Nasser's Harry Potter Zine. If I were J.K. Rowling I would have had Harry Potter die in the last book, the first chapter of the first book is "The boy who lived," how much better would it have been if the last chapter of the last book was "The boy who died?" A lot. Who am I kidding, if I were J.K. Rowling I'd just take another money bath.

Were all just monkeys on a crazy dirt spaceship

Heres a little something from my thesis work, a spot illustration for an article about the manned exploration of space, I'm still not quite sure where I fall on that subject but this spot explores the risk of manned space travel. I'm thinking the title of this piece is "It's cold as hell" after the line from Elton John's "Rocket Man." This piece has a companion that I'll be posting soon after I've made some helpful corrections suggested by one of my teachers, Daniel Krall, check out his stuff at www.danielkrall.com

Sketches and scans, just clap your hands

I apparently used the x-ray function on the scanner since you can see through to the other side of the pages, this is on purpose, it is 100% more efficient to look at images this way. These people are Chip Wass, my guest critic for my thesis mid-term and Taylor Fischer, affectionately called "T-Lore" Fischer as she is proficient in lore, you can look at here arts here: http://taylorfischer.blogspot.com

This is a more comical version of Chip Wass, in this picture he is named "Cherp Waz"

And finally here's a drawing of my good friend Kristin Nohe, check out her stuff here: Kristin Nohe's blog

J. Robert Oppenheimer may have been one of the only people to ever utter the phrase "what has science done?" unironically

This is a piece of from my senior thesis, which deals with science and the discussion and promotion thereof
