On the first day of my Concepts II class, my teacher handed us each a blank story book. We wrote the beginning of a story, and passed it to someone else. Every week we each have to illustrate what has been written, then turn the page and write next part of the story for the person who has it next week to illustrate. This past week was spring break, and whichever book we had, we got to finally do the cover for! I had a book that was about Nikola Tesla looking for love. Here is what I came up with.

and here is my silly sketchbook piece [corresponding to the story, of course]
for some reason it won't let me show you the rotated scan.

It has been a while since I have updated, but here are some projects I have done recently for concepts.

Pattern Workshop

Mood board for wrapping paper project, I was assigned the baby shower theme.

Here is the design I came up with. I kind of like it without color.

My design as a pattern. I need to really work on this, it needs a lot more movement. I am going to change the actual style of repeat that it is, and work on the colors, while also making the words bigger.

Another form of gift wrap, without repeat patterning, of course.
