oh hello.

my dearest best friend/room mate sophia is shooting her thesis film tomorrow in mildford pa. these pieces are going to be in the background of some shots; one of the characters is an artist who paints creepy portraits. so she asked me to crank out a few. here are some:

this sketchbook with the ribbon tie was dirt cheap at muji.
i think it needs to be filled with portraits.

more really old crappy work. this is when i first started using brush and ink; you can tell because the line weights are so funky.

if you haven't read the phantom tollbooth by now, you probably should.

the assignment was to put a mythological creature in my hometown environment. i was born in kuwait but have spent most of my life in trenton, new jersey. trenton kind of sucks but in a really endearing way. anyway, cerberus, the three headed dog, is guarding this terrible bridge in trenton that says "trenton makes the world takes". there is a train blocking the second half of the phrase, which i kind of regret including. but at the same time, i didn't want that sign to be the focus of the piece. i miss this piece-- i should be getting it back soon.

opium & slave trade. it's fun playing around with a limited palate.

this one is about deadly bacteria that lives in water,
adobe photoshop doesn't like photomerging my two scans of this piece,
and i wasn't very good at it either.

the best thing to do on valentines day is wake up hungover and start blogging. i read that in cosmo.

i guess i should start with work from 2008.
