Some more sketches from the academy. Great times here, my mind is being blown every day! Here are some sketches, one for fun, some gestures for a final piece (with James Jean copies in there), and the early sketch for the painting below.
I had a great time in NY! I went for a Society of Illustrators function. After reviewing my work and other terrific student illustrators I was awarded the 2008 Zankel Scholarship from a panel of illustrators and AD's. I feel very lucky since the other artists (Sam, Cassandra, and David) are extremely talented. There should be an official announcement on the Society website soon.
