It's been three years since I've been to Wingo's figure drawing class, and two years since I've picked up a piece of charcoal! Needless to say, I'm a bit rusty.

I definitely miss Wingo's classes! He's one of my favorite professors of all time.

poster thumbnails

I post-ited some quick 30 second thumbnails for my poster design.

Which ones do you like best?

potential taglines:

"Run for your life."
"There's one monster you just can't escape"
"Sometimes running for your life (or as fast as you can) just isn't enough."

Working on some more visual development for my film. :)

Chocolate Art

I finished a few paintings for my first ever gallery show last weekend! It was a big collaboration called "Chocolate & Art" featuring many Los Angeles based artists. I don't have good pictures of the paintings yet, but these were taken at the show.

Von's was out of Captain Crunch the other day. Methinks the Cap'n got distracted on his way over there:

Bonus Sepia version!

Check out the other submissions for this week's theme "breakfast" over at The Sketchbook Society!

film character

I know what you're thinking. This girl looks absolutely NOTHING like the girl I posted before. My film has changed so much! But it's for the better. I just can't figure out what her name should be. She doesn't seem like a Lily anymore!

-xoxo Emilord

p.s. Guess who has two opposable thumbs and is the newest intern on Adventure Time? This girl!

p.p.s. I edited a few of her shapes to make her more appealing.

My contribution to this week's Sketchbook Society theme, Greek Mythology. I chose Artemis! I really wanted to do Diana; she's my favorite for some weird, super nerdy reasons. But since Diana's Roman Mythology I went with her Greek equivalent, Artemis! I spent waaaay too long making her and her little deer friend. Now back to my film!

2012 Sketchbook Project

I just mailed off my submission for the 2012 Sketchbook Project with the Brooklyn Art House Co-op! The theme I chose was "Encyclopedia of..." and naturally I turned it into "The Encyclopedia of Water Nymphs." I crammed it all into the last second, but it was really fun. I mailed it a day late but paid an arm and a leg to get it there quickly, so fingers crossed there are no problems!

Front and Back Cover! It looks a little like a 5 year old made it, but whatevs, I had fun with the 3D Puff Paint.

Octopus Hair!

Salty Sailor Lass

These mermies mark my first experiences with a brush pen! I'm officially in love.

Betta Battle...


Selkie Girl!

Geisha Mermaid!


So I wrote that paragraph after a huge lack of sleep, and I just realized now that I kept writing "Morrow" instead of "Merrow." My bad! I'm appalled with myself.

Hippie Mermaid!

Hehe. Mermaid Pun.

I drew sooooo many mermaids. There are a lot more if you get a chance to see the book when it goes on tour, but these were all my favorites. What's yours?
