Tooth Mouse

For my traditional illustration class we are working on 3D models based on "odd superstitions". My model is from the Haitian superstition of the "tooth mouse". Instead of a tooth fairy, they tell tales of a mouse who leaves money and takes lost teeth.

Here is a turn-around for the model. It will be suspended from a string hanging from some sort of armature.
A friend suggested it should be holding a tooth so I will probably add that on later.

It's a Stag Party Up in Here


Done with watercolor and ink.
I finally finished the work for my application for the California Academy of Sciences Biological Illustration Internship (what a mouthful).

Final Zozobra Poster

I finished the final poster for Will Shuster's Burning of Zozobra. I tried to get it to look like the background was beaded.

Sea Slug

I'm working on a sea slug for a potential internship. It still has some work to go.

My dad likes to tell a story about having a childhood pet slug named Skippy. That never happened.

Late Night Ad Graph

It's been a long night but I finished the layout for the ad graph mailer.

This will go into a slit into the basket. It is made of seed paper.
