Recent Makeups

Two updates in one day? Unbelievable.

This week I did two makeups for my friend's thesis film. In the world he's creating, most everyone has some kind of scar or injury, so I'll definitely be getting a lot of practice!

The first is a gravedigger character with a scarred face, tired eyes, and dirt stains. The second, a big arm wound (sans blood in this photo) with the rest of the arm discolored as a result of a virus. Both makeups are done with 3rd Degree silicone and Skin Illustrator makeup.

Halloween / Artist Ball 2008

This year for RISD's Artist Ball, my friend Nick and I finally went through with a costume idea we've had for a very long time...

So here we are, as Buzz and Woody from Toy Story!

Kate was Tiger Lily from Peter Pan, which worked out well because then the two of us were a cowboy and an indian.

Here are a couple photos of the Transformers pumpkin that I carved. Autobots on one side, Deceptacons on the other!

Transform, and roll out!

Oh, and once again, please click the little button on the left that says "follow blog" so that you can see when I update!

A Post, Finally

Hey everyone.

I know I don't update this as often as I should, but thanks for bearing with me. I've added the "Follow Blog" feature, so please follow this blog and then you'll know when I actually get around to updating! I've got a few new things to share, so there should be some more posts during the next few weeks.

Anyway, here's some illustrations that I did for "What's Your Story?" with Mary Jane Begin (it's an illustration course focusing on narrative work). Our assignment was to make three images that tell the beginning, middle, and end of a pre-existing text. I chose to use the song "Big Iron" by Marty Robbins, which is a classic cowboy ballad about a gunslinger riding into a town to kill an outlaw. I'd also been wanting to draw reptiles, so... yeah, here it is.

"To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day
Hardly spoke to folks around him, didn't have too much to say"

"Texas Red had not cleared leather 'fore a bullet fairly ripped
And the Ranger's aim was deadly with the big iron on his hip"

"He might have went on living, but he made one fatal slip
When he tried to match the Ranger with the big iron on his hip"

Stay tuned, folks. More to come soon. I promise.
