Lamar Dodd School of Art Paint Tube

This is what the UGA school of visu­al arts used to look like. It was real­ly far from the dorms and close to down­town Athens. I some­times dream I’m back in school and lost on cam­pus, rid­ing busses to nowhere, tun­nel­ing under the school of art, wan­der­ing around down­town and on giant hill­sides peer­ing down into a mas­sive white sta­di­um with hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple look­ing at me. This is an imag­i­nary pop art sculp­ture I designed a long time ago.

This is an illus­tra­tion of a nerd show­ing off his think­ing cap. Google is my think­ing cap. “Not a word, not a word, not a word now. Qui­et, dona­tions, you want me to make a dona­tion to the coast guard youth auxiliary?”

Blue Mosquito

Blue Mosquito
Blue Mos­qui­to

This is an illus­tra­tion of a blue mos­qui­to that I did a long time ago. I updat­ed it using my iPad Pro. The changes seem insub­stan­tial but they add much char­ac­ter to the design. I added thick­er and more detailed legs and added hairs to his tho­rax and anten­na. I also updat­ed his wing detail and changed his bug­gy eyes. The thing that the iPad does so well is let me pull free­hand lines like I would with a pen or brush. This is far faster and eas­i­er than draw­ing them with the curve tool in pho­to­shop or try­ing to draw them on a wacom intu­os in pho­to­shop with brush smooth­ing turned on. 


Jester Monster

Pig Eating Bat Soup

I can’t believe we live in a world where peo­ple under­stand what infec­tious dis­ease is and how it spreads and how cat­a­stroph­i­cal­ly dam­ag­ing it can be to the very foun­da­tions of human civ­i­liza­tion but we let ran­dom sick peo­ple get on planes and spread dead­ly pan­demics around the world in a mat­ter of hours. We need to make some seri­ous changes to how inter­na­tion­al trav­el and nation­al bor­ders and immi­gra­tion all work. Shut­ting down the world econ­o­my after it has cir­cled the globe 5 times is too lit­tle too late.
