A quick study of a photo. I tried painting in one layer using a more 'Sargeant' approach, which I've always struggled with, because I get impatient. I'll try to do a lot more this summer.

The Chair

This was one of the first assignments in BFA, back in summer of 2012, which I kind of forgot about. We were given a week to create a 30-second film entitled "The Chair." Those were the only guidelines, so this is the ridiculous thing I came up with...

New business card. Eh? What do you think?

Maya's Notebook - Opening Shot

My BFA class was recently given the assignment to create a trailer for the book, "Maya's Notebook," by Isabel Allende. This is the opening shot I did for my group's trailer..

I wanted to create the illusion that as the image pans, it looks as if the camera is looking upward, rather than just panning up, which is why I used this warped perspective.
