toys are fun

I made this for my illustration class for a toy design + packaging idea.

The sailboat says:

"this is a simple gift for you.
cause all my life I want to explore the ocean blue,
go further, deeper and build my life on whats true.
everyday will be an adventure whether on land or sea
and I want my best friend to always be beside me."

two birdies for the price of one


I made this plushie a week or so ago to send to my dear friend Stanley. First I made the girl side but didn't feel like making a side identical to it so I decided to make the other side a boy bird :)

It was a lot of fun to make, I think I'll explore making more things with felt.

the latests happenings

These are a few hearts I made for a piece I did in my social art class. I made a bunch of hearts and handed them out one by one in a brown bag with a postcard. The instructions were for that person to give the heart away to someone and then fill out the postcard which asked "who did you give your heart to? why?" and mail it to me/put it in my mailbox.

This is my last illustration project. It's for my brother :) I wanted to give it to him in person... but I don't think I can wait that long (!!!) sooo... I'm going to be creative and figure something else out. The colors are a little off and there are a few things I need to tweak, but here it is currently.

These oct-o-pie friends are something I'm currently working on for class,  I'll have more about them posted later :)

Thursdays thoughts

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.
  Though it cost all you have, get understanding.

Esteem her, and she will exalt you;
  embrace her, and she will honor you.
