Let's begin

So I have just go back from a very long break from school and life. Rach and I were traveling through Italy for a painting and drawing course through Sheridan, and then we were in Hawai'i with her family on vacation, I know, rough life!

We're back now and ready to get to work,
I will be posting more here and updating my site in a few months, I'm getting back into the swing of things, we just moved as well before we left two months ago, so it's also crazy here trying to set up a new studio and find everything amidst the mountain of boxes!

The grad show was great, lots of people both nights, and a great cap to the end of our career at Sheridan. Oh speaking of which, I made some custom 'thank you' cards for some art directors that had come into our classes to give some critiques, and teachers who have helped and inspired me along the way.
Also I am posting below some of my sketchbook stuff from italy, I may go in and rework some stuff when I'm bored or don't have anything to do.

Here's the details of the 'thank you' cards:

I cut each 'thankyou' out by hand and wrote a personal message within.

I then took a color that was in the illustration on the other cover and silk screened it on the inside so it would come through the negative space of the letters.

The other cover

I'm happy with how they turned out, I hope that everyone who received one enjoyed it!

Oh and here's some sketches:

That's all for now, I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!
