Killustration 6 is a thesis group of six MICA students. This blog will be used for posting useful links for each other to use as resources and inspiration, as well as posting our latest sketches, work etc. for feedback.
I am so glad it's over. I have all the illustrations painted, scanned, and made a nice color mock up. I made one for my mom for christmas. I did a very different cover, but I think it works so much better. !! I told Sarah my idea for next semester which is a few smaller projects, one being some vintage postcards as mailers. (prob 4) Im still thinking.... NO BOOKS, cuz I have the Illustrated Book next semester lol.
What are every one's schedule for the Spring? Cept for Ash cuz she' OUTTA HERE.
Hey guys! I just finished printing my diagram illustration, so here's how it turned out...
I printed it on a ton of different kinds of paper, different colors, etc.. even on matte duralar which looks pretty awesome in person but isn't too special when scanned. Anyway, I'm really happy with how it came out and and going to miss letterpressing a lot :(
I don't know why this took so freaking long...but because it did, I'm not going to morning class tomorrow. I'm still also struggling with a 4th idea for space. I had "coming out of warp in front of the sun" but that's kinda complicated and doesn't make for a good image. I would VERY VERY much like your ideas cuz my brain can't come up with anything cool.
Also the line work for these is colored partially and only on the space sharks, so imagine the rest with that.
So I'm going back and some of my old art for my new website I'm planning on launching very soon. The new ones are the ones with more colored line work and texture. What are your thoughts on this?
Also, I've recently been considering changing my "name" back to sarah sorden, instead of sarahsloth. because it's more professional. But the sloth is more memorable. But it also has negative connotations (laziness, slowness etc).
For messy room, decided to push the jungle thing. Sorry if it's a little hard to read.
For falling up, haven't finished the b/g or anything but let me know if you guys like the positions of them or have any suggestions, especially about the girl/her stylization because I was struggling with it....always struggling with people.
Hey ladies....I ran across this trailer...apparently this movie already came out...I'm always way behind with all moves...but actually browsing lends me to discover things. But because its 3d/animated it reminded me of Aehee and Ashley's projects they're currently working on. Just wanted to throw the trailer in here. Inspiration and what not :]
I won't be in to class tomorrow cuz I have a doctor's apt I have to get to in DC. But here are my sketches.
HERE'S THE TEXT
Getting tangled in seaweed This can be very inconvenient, especially when you have somewhere to be. A good tool for dealing with this pesky aquatic plant is a good old fashioned knife. If you forgot yours, try to grab a sawfish. Clawed Crustations The sound of the ocean can sometimes be heard from putting your ear to a conch shell. However, a danger lies in this activity. Sometimes there is still a creature living in the shell and it will come out and pinch you! Also beware of other forms of attack by clawed crustations - kid being pinched on noses and butts.
Sea Zombies (only has one sketch) Sunken ships provide a wonderful ecosystem for aquatic life to flourish. Unfortunately, they also come with zombie crews. These crews can range in numbers, depending on who was on deck when the ship sunk. Unlike land zombies, the sea zombies do not seek brains. They only hunger for bellybutton lint. Empty it out before you enter the water.
Nessy The elusive sea queen hides from the public, but for those who frequent Lock Ness for it's wonderful diving, Nessy can be quite dangerous if not handled properly. Being the only lock ness monster in the lake, she has grown lonely, and situations have been known to turn very ugly when you deny her invitations for tea.
