Because my final junior illustration assignment was a "secret santa" and/or my peers wrote in ideas for my final project, I have a whole bag full of ideas written with attention paid to what I could do well or would like to do. One of these was to do 5 dog expressions, which seemed really out of nowhere at first. The more I thought about it the more it seemed like a really fun exercise. Still not sure about these colors, but I did this relatively quickly to get warmed up for next semester.

Teenage Heaven and Hell

Clearly one of the more graphic pieces I've made while at MICA, I really enjoyed doing this one. I kind of put my courtesies aside and let myself do what I wanted, because let's face it, being a teenager is not innocent and not entirely nice, and even if it is, you would call them "glory days" because they don't last very long.

This was my final for my junior illustration class, the assignment being to create 2 images in square format, one of teenage heaven, and one of teenage hell. I decided to make mine into a sort of diptych, but if it was printed in a booklet they would reflect one another. I also decided I wanted to use a color scheme that I never used.
