First assignment for Concepts II. It's an illustration of this place called Feather Island, where all the inhabitants are women and the upper class women have feathers instead of hair. Watercolor, gouache, 16.5 x 20in.

Second go at the wild swans story for Illustrative Print. This time I used a bigger block and printed it using the press instead of by hand. The cutting got a lot easier the more I did it. Relief block print, 12 x 18in.

First assignment for my Lifestyle class which is a fashion illustration course. The assignment was to choose a location and find existing designer clothes that draw inspiration from the place. I chose the Museum of Natural History and looked at Jean Paul Gaultier's couture collections for the past five years. Having the four illustrations due at the same time was a challenge, but I'm pretty happy with the results. Watercolor, ink, 8 x 13in
