Another page from my version of Puss in Boots. In the original, Puss meets an shape shifting ogre, who turns himself into a lion. To better fit the western theme, I switched it up and made the lion a rattlesnake.

Just put the finishing touches on this one today. The idea was a magazine cover depicting “Robot Dawn,” so of course, my first thought was robot dog.  The future looks bright, if you ask me. ;)

For my senior studio project I’ve been working on my own rendition of the classic fairytale, Puss in Boots. I’ll have a mock up of the entire book printed for my senior show in May, but for now, here’s the front and back cover!  Painted entirely in Adobe Photoshop.

One of the bigger projects I’ve been working on this semester, is my own version of the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood. When it’s completely finished, I’ll have a mock up of the book, with finished drawings for all the interiors, and several finished works as well. Here’s the front and back cover! In my version, I have transformed Little Red into a little red fox (one of my all-time favorite animals).
