Alphabet of Strange Girls

For my final printmaking credit before I graduate (to complete my concentration), I am taking a book/paper making class.  And who knew making books and paper could be so much fun?!  Definitely a craft that I am glad to have learned while still at MICA.  And for our main project for the semester, we're each making an artist book.  I have decided to create an Edward Gorey inspired alphabet book of strange girls.  The plan thus far is to lithograph the illustrations and letterpress the text.  It's going to be a lot of work, but I'm excited.  Here are examples of sketches that I'm working with:

Faux-losophy Thesis Update!

I made some changes to the t-shirt designs that I posted recently.  Below are the three final designs that I will be printing for this semester in three different color options.

YPF Poster

Here's an illustration I did for Center Stage's Young Playwrights Festival - where students all over Maryland are allowed to submit their own play to be produced by Center Stage.  This is a call for entries poster with room left for the information to be inserted.  My concept here was to simply inspire the imaginations of young people with a fantastical scene.  I'm assuming we'll find out whose poster was chosen in class tomorrow.  Even if my poster wasn't chosen, this was still a fun piece to make.
