This is too funny. October 17, Katie, our friend Paul and I are running in the Men's Health Urbanathalon. It's a race around downtown but with lots of obstacles (tires, stairs, hurdles, jumping over taxi cabs etc.) So I wanted to make our team a t-shirt for it. Paul went to Iowa, and we are gamecocks, obviously, so this is the t-shirt design I have drawn so far. It's so funny, but has made me realized how strange our mascot looks.
Both of these mascots are birds, yet the Hawkeye is strong, wears clothes, and has a human-like figure. Cocky, on the other hand, is basically wearing a mu-mu, has ladies legs (in black leggings?), has slippers for feet, and doesn't wear pants? He was obviously modeled after Mickey mouse or some character because the original one they use on the website has white cartoon gloves also. I think it's time for a redesign USC.
But back to the design--I will put our team name on it most likely, but had started working on a cloud of smoke behind them. It's not right though, something's off....suggestions? I'll post the final when it's done.

So I've started working on a new painting for friends. They wanted something really big and colorful, so this is what I'm working with so far. The canvas is 60" x 36", I've been obsessed with crazy patterns lately so I've started laying out the background pattern of this weird geometric block staircase thing, inspired by a print by Will Bryant (love this guys work).
I am not sure about colors yet, I think I may want to use different ones than above, but eventually I want to paint a person similar to the photo above, but in my style and perhaps in black and white, over the whole entire pattern. I do not think I will cover the whole canvas with the geometric pattern either.... Still working on the whole idea. Thoughts?

Saturday morning there was the Windy City Comicon right by my house so Mickey, Vanessa and I went...no really. haha. It was pretty cool, I have so much respect for the artists just sitting there illustrating full-on scenes and characters with no references, awesome.
and I bought this cheesey hello kitty as Wonderwoman. haha

Here are some pics I took after unpacking everything in my new studio. It's not completely set up, but you can get the idea. There's still a lot I need to do, but I really like the space so far:
my desk and closet:
waiting to get a small table to go with those red chairs
my bed (with temporary curtains for now)
front door, and my bike
YES i bought the CTA shower curtain. haha
and someone brought me flowers for my new place! :)
