From July 1999 to September 2003 (right out of High School) I studied multimedia production and design. I lost quite a few of my old projects due to faulty storage. Luickly I was able to salvage some works. On this page you will find a handful of these projects and concepts behind them.

Shirley Manson (Cosmogirl) - Illustration Final

At the time I created this, Garbage was a very influential band in my life. Shirley Manson did a photo spread for Cosmogirl magazine and for our illustration final, I chose this image to sketch in Adobe Illustrator.

Oakley Ad - Illustration Midterm

For our illustration midterm, we were to replicate a magazine ad in Adobe Illustrator. I chose this Oakley ad to showcase more advanced blending techniques. I thought to not make the O in the URL exact just to show that it was my own work.

Human Physique Study - Illustrator Class Project

During our course study, we were to craft a project where we traced a black and white image of the human physique. While the majority of the class took to the curviture of the female form, I chose the harsh lines of the male form to create a postcard advertisement for a ficticious volleyball team.

Club Montepulciano Advertisement - Side Project

I was inspired to create this postcard advertisement on my own for a ficticious nightclub. This was created using Adobe Photoshop.

Tuscon Jaycees Brochure - Side Project

I was approached by a roommate, who was a member of the Jaycees, to assist in redesigning their brochure from a dated plain text version. Using both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, I drafted several versions and ultimately this was the version she liked the most.
