Guys, guys. I confess: it's been a while since posting on here. Senior year has been real busy, and filled with a lot of kooky stuff. Also, discovering twitter and tumblr has made it difficult for me to stay faithful to just one blogging/social networking site at a time. While I work on rebuilding this place from the ground up, follow me elsewhere, if you dare:
my tumblr; where I post more art and all things like it.
my twitter; where I blurt out sometimes relevant things!
As always, to those who have not yet abandoned this ship, thank you for following me. Know that there will be more art coming your way soon!
SO finals are upon us here at MICA, and I've got quite a few tall hurdles to jump before I can continue goofing off on the internet again. Updates will be sparse here for the next two weeks, but hold tight! I'll see if I can't throw a few images up here between now and the end of the year. As always, thank you for sticking with me and my doodles; I love hearing any thoughts/crits you may have to offer on my work :-) -Shanti
Given the line "assessing risk" as a jumping off point for a fantasy illustration, I chose to expand on my series of Ivan and the Firebird pieces: this being the part of the story where Ivan comes across a castle he has to enter, which is heavily guarded by some lethargic, but lethal beasts. you can find more developing IVAN artwork by me here.
Our latest assignment in Concepts class: make an image for a travel ad to a place of your choice. The hustle and bustle of market places are always fascinating to me; how could I not choose India? Now, onto mini thesis!
Hey watchers and casual perusers, ever wonder what my sketches look like? What? No? Well, too bad! listen to this anyway:
through a wonderful idea conceived by my fellow artist Rachael Hunt, I have now assembled a jumble of sketches, scribbles and unpolished ideas together into a flikr slideshow. Feel free to browse it anytime, as it'll grow whenever I add new images to the stream. Much better, I think, than clogging this blog with undeveloped work. Thanks for sitting tight guys! That's it for now.
P.S.- like how many times I subliminally linked to it? What? No? Get outta here!
a work in progress to an assignment involving the reinterpretation of a fictional book cover. The title of mine was "Freedom: a novel" by Jonathan Franzen. Never read the book before, but had an art director/classmate who did; hope this does the story justice!
