Junior "Thesis" @SVA! Marie Antoinette

I finally got around to scanning my Junior "thesis"/Junior project from back in April!

Our theme was "Kings and Queens" and these were our guidelines:

"The most important rule this year is that your character (or characters) MUST BE REAL!  They must have drawn breath!  Therefore legendary, mythic or imaginary characters are not to be used.  However, they do not have to be actual monarchs.  If you wish, you can design projects around those who are the kings and queens of their field: Edison as the king of inventors, Elvis as the king of Rock and Roll, Sarah Bernhardt as the queen of the stage, etc."

We had the entire academic year to complete eight finished works.  I went with a really obscure queen, Marie may have heard about her before, probably not though...

Medium: Dip pen and ink.

Draw Machine: Segundo CapĂ­tulo

A few classmates/friends of mine started a drawing group over the past summer with weekly drawing challenges..with the goal of not getting rusty over 'vacation'. First week's challenge was to illustrate a song or other miscellaneous musical composition.
I decided to go with: 

Song: For Today I Am A Boy by Antony & the Johnsons

I'll be updating this blog regularly from here on out with my Draw Machine submissions as well as other miscellaneous work!

Steve DeFrank + some more personal work

I took Steve DeFrank's drawing class Spring 2012 and I'll be taking it again this coming semester.  Something tells me I'll be doing more of this type of work...cathartic for sure.
