During the iteration process, I definitely played with color palette and composition of how the woman should be seen as.

Hate on Kim Jung Un

medium: watercolor and ink

The assignment was to fullfill a political or famous figure who is hated. The work I did was Kim Jung Un. I wanted the imagery to read as a cold hearted leader with heart out of his chest, nuke bomb tattoo on his torn off shirt to show off his regime, backdrop of communist symbol that reflects the government, and the smoke as ulimate background of North Korea stands by. This experimentation brought me to illustrate Kim Jung Un’s personality in a rough stylized way. Some what like Edward Gorey.


Sick Pill

Medium: gouache, photoshop, and indesign

For my Drawing and painting 1 class, I did painting based on the New York op ed article the Wrong pill can play with your mind by Jamie Lowe. I wanted to do a graphic shape of the pill and painted illustration within it as a design solution. As my solution I depicting the less obvious and more symbolic message, I showed the double sidedness of taking medication that works for others, but not for all.


Unknowing and knowing

Medium: acrylic and photoshop

The painting was based on The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. The project was meant to learn about interpreting a still life object and personification of the raven as if it was powerful raging fire in context of unknowing smoke that represented the dead and knowing hand of man holding the lantern. This was as petrifying to the man who believing that woman, Lenore came back to have revenge on him.

Safe or Save

Medium: transfer paper and acrylic

My painting divulges the truth of plastic consumption in relationship to environmental pollution. My current painting references the projected effects plastics will have on our ecosystem. The vernacular of the painting mentions imagery commonly seen in American advertising for example the plastic bottle displayed within an idyllic setting. The toned palette of black, greys, and limited color palette denotes the devastating effects the petroleum industry has imbued onto our planet.
