Its finals week, which with only two classes requires a lot more discipline to fight early winter break mode. Here's my final from my conceptual illustration class, we made a zine with the theme "myths of the future." Mine came from how orange the night sky looks in San Jose and what that kind of progression looks like in the futureeeeee.

I painted this self portrait. To me it perfectly expresses that best point in the artistic process, where you achieve that balance of pride and satisfaction at reaching a new level and determination to improve even further.

I am surrounded by amazing people who inspire me and help me grow. So much to learn and do.

More small paintings.

Some self-portraits, a plein air, and some speedy guys from reference. There's this Nathan Fowkes post where he mentioned his practice of studying color and composition every day. I think about that when I do these, and it makes it a lot easier to work on my gaps in knowledge, and have fun with something I really struggle with. 

Always learning! 

Semester's almost over, and things keep speeding along! Gotta keep balanced footing to make it through!
