Walk'n with Walken

So I have to start off this post by saying that my wife finds Christopher Walken super creepy! I can remember the first movie that I saw him in... Batman Returns. He played Max Shrek a wealthy business man. I loved that movie and from then on I have been a fan of Mr Walken.

This painting was once again done for the Advanced Illustration class at UVU taught by Richard Hull. Painted in Photoshop CS5. I think this one could use a little more cow bell whad'ya think?

Gallery of Terror!

Every fall semester the Illustration department at UVU hosts the annual Gallery of Terror. It's a fun opportunity for the students to paint or draw something with a little halloween theme... (Col-erase pencil, Photoshop and Painter)

Nine Ball Corner Pocket

As some of you know I'm currently a student at Utah Valley University. We (the students) are really lucky to have such an amazing faculty here. I have a deep respect all of my instructors at UVU they are amazing artists. Also I'm really impressed with the wide variety of classes that are available to the Illustration majors. Sure there are the basic fundamental drawing and painting classes but we have some really cool classes like Concept Design. This class focuses on creating designs for environments, vehicles and props for video games and movies.

This logo was created for this class. For this assignment we were to come up with a fictitious company name and design a logo for our company. I submitted a couple of ideas along with my classmates. The class narrowed it down to a couple of really good names and then we voted on them. My idea was chosen and along with that I got the privilege of designing the final logo.

Freaking...Incredible!

I can remember several years ago seeing a trailer for this bizarre movie about this dorky kid in moon boots and large head of hair. I thought Napoleon Dynamite was hilarious. I know that movie was not everyones cup of tea but I loved it. To be honest I think that there is a little Napoleon in all of us.

This was painted for my advanced Illustration class at UVU taught by Richard Hull. For this class we get to choose our projects for the semester. The only catch is that they have to all have some kind of theme or connection. My theme was "hit" movies. I painted Spider-Man first and now Mr. Dynamite. If you like this or any of my other paintings on this blog please leave a comment I'd love to hear from you!
