New business card design.

A Mary Blair inspired landscape working off of the previous landscape. 

The assignment for this one was to go a much simple route and incorporate some cartoon modern elements into it. Mary Blair was one of my biggest inspirations for this. For those of you who don’t know her work she did concepts for movies such as Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. Google her and you’ll fine excellent examples of her work.

I learned I like to work in this style a lot. It gave me a different perspective on landscapes. It also taught me I don’t need to go super realistic to be beautiful. There’s beauty in simplicity.

Working on studying landscape painting for an assignment.

Work In Progress

Quick value study of landscape painting for an assignment. We needed to super impose at least 3 elements into it that included something from life, and two of the landscape master.

I chose Squires Castle: media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/medi… (This is not my picture, but I did go to the castle and do several thumbnails of it, and take reference shots.)
And two paintings by Church; Twilight in The Wilderness, and Storm in The Mountains. (Both located and studied at The Cleveland Museum of Art)

Still Life of a “The Nightmare Before Christmas” snow globe.

For my digital painting, and concept design class.
