LAW-KEY's portraits

Portraits we had to do for Lauchie Ried's Drawing and Painting class.. GOSH these were such a pain in the buttox. Lately, I've been getting so annoyed when I look at myself in the mirror because I feel like I gotta do a portrait all of a sudden. Each portrait we had to do a certain colour study. In total we did 4 portraits, the 4th one is pretty bad haha so I decided to save you from your eyes bleeding.  

Greyscale study

Burnt Umber and Ultramarine
 study of warm and cool tones
the eyes were SO FREAKY haha I had to censor it. 

Portrait study - using all colours and such 
murrr....... not really satisfied with this
ran out of time : [

A OKAY's Ink drawing

Observational drawing assignment we had to do for Nickolas Aoki's class : )

Creative Life Store: Post- Secret Series

So for the final project in Gary Taxali's class, we were asked to do a Creative Life Store, inspired by the beautiful losers? ( i think that's right) So basically we were to make a series of pieces about anything, usually something personal or expresses a bit of who you are. 
I took a different approach to this, and decided to illustrate Post Secrets. Being inspired by Christian Northeast's illustrations of people's prayers, I thought it would be fun to do the same. I also wanted to work a little more on my concept development. For these pieces I did some pyrography (wood-burning) and I loved it! My linework needs some work, but overall I'm puuurrdyy happy about these pieces : D 

The following image quality is pretty crappy- I made quick snap shot before i left for school. 

Warning: the following content may offend some.. or make you feel a little nastay. I chose these post secrets in particular because they got my juices flowing, some were funny and some were just plain crazzzay/weird-- which is what i like : P hahaha 

"I tasted my own menstrual blood"

"When I'm alone in a public washroom, I like to stand  4 feet away from the urinal"

"My wife says she's seen smaller, but I think she's just being kind.."

"I got tired of being pregnant, so I broke my water two weeks early so the baby would be born."

Man and the Machine

Man and the Machine - Acrylic exploration

Here's another project done in Harvey's class! 
This time we had to explore acrylics-  which was  nothing really new to us, considering we are already doing a painting course with acrylics, but the project was still fun! I decided to paint an old sketch i had from a similar project last semester. I'm sort of okay with this piece. I have the urge to re-do it though. Whether i will or not is a total mystery haha : P. My concept is kind of a play between the old and the new. except the new is the old, and the old is the new. WHOAA ( sorry for the lack of explanation, i'm feeling particularly lazy today)
