    Nope. I really only had one drawing class and one scenic painting class. I work in the theatre as a scenic artist. Most of my experiences comes from painting sets for theatre productions and working for different companies :)

    The next post I will find some pictures from work :)

    Amazing. So when you say theatre, you are talking about backgrounds for plays, etc?

    Yes! Backgrounds, sets (platforms and walls the actors walk on and interact with), some furniture and certain props. I paint a lot of it, depends on the play or musical :)

    Hey sorry for the long wait. Grad school is taking up a lot of time. But on the plus side I've been in a prop class so I have some pieces to add on here! I hope you guys enjoy! :D

    First is a foam carving of a lion door knocker. Started with an 8"x8"x2" Piece of foam. Never carved foam this detailed before. turned out alright. The face is a little squished in but I still like it haha

    Then we had to take a cheap hard cover book and make into something neat with maybe secret compartments and such. I nerded out and was inspired to do a Legend of Zelda style book Here is the outside of it

    The inside looked like this! :)

    I made a little fairy in the bottle and behind it I burned the edges and added the triforce symbol!

    Another project we did was we had to make a Venetian mask from scratch. I found a cool image of a steam punk bunny I used as inspiration. here is the final product!

    Okay this is something I can't NOT share! My lab class that I'm teaching has currently been working on a "voodoo doll" project. Basically they learn basic sewing skills and how to be creative with decorating it. I had some time during their work days so I made one myself along with them! I'm tickled pink with how well and cute this turned out!

    He's about 8" tall and about 2" chest width. I found a cheerleading pom pom for his hair, spray painted his pants on and used little straws and hot glue to make the swords! :)

    This summer has been busy but I just wanted to post my favorite project which was for our Production of Disney's Newsies.
    I was given an image from the designer and had to recreate it on a 3 foot by 6 foot canvas. It took 22 hours of work over the course of 4 days, only 9 colors and lots of internal screaming lol :) Here is the final product next to my given image! :D Enjoy!

    Thank you! :D I'm so happy you guys enjoy my work. I'll do my best to post more, but grad school will start up again soon. Crossing my fingers I'll have time :)

    I so wanna say yes I'll do it, but I already have a long list of side projects and then with school. If you tell me what you'd like, in the next year or two, I might get to it :D lol

    Ooo I came across this gem while organizing my photos. I posted it on the forum for one of the drawing challenges earlier this year. I figured I could share it here too! :chopper::usopp::luffy: IMG_20170105_000730.jpg
