Here are some character designs that I have been working on for variations of my thesis story. His working name is Thaddeus, and he lives alone in an abandoned logging town. The initial character variations were all inspired from drawing random shapes, and picking out facial features from the abstract shapes.

So it has been a long hall, but I finally finished my Push/Pull exaggerated for animation class. It was the second part of a semester long project, and it was a lot of fun to work on despite the ups and downs. Feel free to comment. Enjoy!

I am working on this new logo for DFA. I am trying to make something sleek and futuristic. Not quite done yet, but this is the WIP. This was my first time seriously working in Adobe Illustrator, so I definitely stumbled through this one, but it was fun and I love the benefits of vector images.

I went to boston with a few friends from my Israel trip, and we wandered around the museum of science for a while. It was really a fun day. Lots of walking in the arctic winds of Boston. One of the Exhibits at the museum was about M.C. Escher, which was pretty awesome. They had recreated some of his impossible shapes, and had some really cool optical illusions to look at. One of the coolest thing at the museum is this 2000 year old sequoia tree cross-section. You can look closely and see every single ring from every year the tree was growing. There are little lights going across the radius of the trunk that represent certain important dates in history. The light in the latter (blurry) picture is placed on the ring that represents the year that Leonardo Da Vinci painted The Last Supper, which I thought was awesome.
In other news, I had a pretty low key new year. I had the magical idea of starting a drawing in 2010 and finishing it in 2011 without picking the pen up from the paper. The results are as follows. I was slightly amused...
