Society of Illustrators

Every year the Society of Illustrators in New York holds an art show of student work. Since I was still a student for part of 2011, I got to apply and my piece got in! It was just a little painted sketch that I did of myself waiting for the Bart train one day. It will be exhibiting May 9- June 2, although I'm not sure where yet.

Rikki Tikki Tavi

These past 5 weeks or so I have been participating in a mentorship program called Motivarti where someone from the animation industry mentors you while you do projects. My mentor is Scott Wantanabe, a concept artist at Disney and also a SJSU alumni. 

I have been doing work for the old Rikki Tikki Tavi story, about a Mongoose in India. Here is one my pieces.  I was trying to do something different by focusing on the foliage design, and then I ended up turning it into a little scene.
