Student Repeated Symmetry Studies
Just wanted to show some of my studio art class symmetry studies. These student collage studies are interesting examples of cut out and drawn symmetrical and near symmetrical designs repeated to create kaleidoscopic patterns.

Rendering Different Eras
Thought I'd elaborate just a little more about the process that goes into this documentary graphic novel. Rendering eerie environments is always a lot of fun and this project is particularly so because I'm drawing from sketches I did while visiting the Crescent Hotel and from old photos and other researched documents. Throughout the book I illustrate exteriors and interiors as it is now (top right and bottom right), as it was during the turn of the century (bottom left), and as it was as the cancer hospital of the late nineteen thirties (top left). We will also visit the abandoned, lurid halls of the hospital/hotel as it lay dormant in the nineteen forties. This is a good story and it is a dark story that needs to be told. I've chosen to tell it in the format I know best.

The above images are not finished. This is a work in progress but is scheduled to be completed by October of this year (just in time for Halloween).
