Done with the hand! Also throwing in another piece i did a while back. 100% unhappy with how the guy came out, most definitely change him later on if i use this for anything. But for now, enjoy :)

Those Darn Lefty's

Working on an editorial assignment right now for an article about left handed individuals (of which I happen to be). It talks a lot of the stigma that goes along with being left handed, and for my illustration I decided it would be interesting to add a religious undertone (since much of the negative reputation is religion-based). These two are the WIP's i have so far. I still havent decided if i want the background to be pure white, or to have something going on. I think i may end up adding more vines in the foreground, and more fading into the back, to give a sense that this person is inevitably trapped within a field of bramble bushes (or something to that effect). Either way, its getting there!

Holy scholarship money batman!

Just found out last night that one of my pieces won the 5000$ "in Memory of Arthur Zankel Award!" I am absolutely speechless guys, really! I was thrilled just having my pieces in the show, but this is beyond exciting! For those who are curious, it was my "Wounded knee" piece here:

I still don't think it's quite sunk in yet. There were so many incredible pieces in that show, i didn't expect to get much more than the amazing opportunity to show my work :) I will say though, without everyones unconditional support i probably would not have improved so much <3

Art-wise, i am working on a couple things now, expect some updates in the next week or two :)
