Keynesian Economics Final(s)

So I did a final for one of my sketches and because I wasn't so sure of the message got across (the fact that it's about Keynesian Economics) I decided to make a second, slightly more literal illustration about the matter. There IS a tardis in both, but the in second illustration it got almost completely darkened out...oh well. I kinda like both in their own way, and I got to try out digital painting again. YAY....?

Happy Birthday Ruchi!!

Here's you're birthday card. sorry it's a bit belated.

This has also been uploaded to a new blog, "The Scrabbles Singles Society", I share with Meg. It's all about cards, Doctor Who, Lost, and Scrabble.

Flight of the Conchords Poster Contest.....FAIL

SO, this is my FOTC poster fail:

I finished fixing my FOTC poster, that I created a long time ago for Hand Letters Class,
and then I decided to make another FOTC poster. Both would've been submitted to their contest which ended today.

Unfortunately, though it's probably my fault for procrastinating (but I find I make better work when I have less time for a project, or at least my motivation's higher) I missed the deadline.
I went on there at 11:55 p.m. only to find out that I couldn't upload it.
The deadline was 11:59 a.m. not 11:59 p.m.

Actually, I'm not sure if it's entirely my fault because I'm pretty sure I'd read p.m. in the rules, and other people actually posted the same issues.

I thought about submitting my posters to the ineligible art poster section, but then I'm thinking, I'll just save them for next time around. I'm not terribly disappointed since at least it got me working on things today, and my second poster is my favorite since I whipped it out around 6:00 p.m....so total amount of time is 6 hours...which is not so bad.

Some of the patterns and images were provided by the FOTC contest, like the squiggly starts and clouds, FOTC logo, and blue,yellow circle designs. Apart from textures, the rest are my drawings.

All in all, a good day's work.

Happy Belated Valentines Day.

This is has been a very productive day for posting.
The comic is for illustrophilia and the other picture is for parapagus.

sketches about Keynesian Economics

New sketches for an illustration project about Keynesian Economics. I'm trying to not be literal, but maybe I'm not literal enough....I'll just have to wait and see what my teacher thinks. The idea I'm addressing is the use of this theory that was outdated for a certain period of time, but is now being used to solve this economic crisis because.....it's all anyone can come up with right now.
The last 20 minutes of This American Life's "The New Boss" explains Keynesian Economics very clearly and I found it very helpful.
Oh, and there....might/might not be a Tardis in my sketches. lol.

Final for the Far far Away assignment

So I decided to paint this on canvas....and halfway through I realized....I can't paint. I have this problem with creating forms without lines. Or if I have lines I avoid painting them out, or if I do paint them out, I unconciously paint them back in.
it's a mix of traditional and digital. I miss the lines, but I think the lighting is better....maybe...?
I just know I'm done. ugh.
but my favorite part. The Tardis.

Colored Sketch for Far Far Away assignment

So I colored the sketch for Chana. Maybe one day I'll do the Alifbay comic. Anyways, tried to limit my palette and be as clear as possible since I know my drawings have a tendency of merging into itself.....So, can anyone find the TARDIS inside?????
