Reality Not Included Submission

This past Fall, a group of students and alumni from Brigham Young University's animation and illustration programs put together an anthology/book/collection/thing showcasing their art, titled Reality Not Included. A lot of it is composed of comics, but there are some single pieces in there too. I was fortunate enough to be a part of it. Here's my little contribution.

Yeah, it's based on a series of photos I took of myself. What else ya gonna go without a willing model around? I'd had a completely different idea for the project at the outset. That got changed a couple weeks before the deadline. Then this came out. It went through a fair amount of tweaking to get here, but I'm pretty satisfied with it.

Oh, and we're doing another volume. So we'll see what happens next.

"The Character of Color" Self-Portrait

Here it is. You can see all of the pieces together (sort of) by visiting my website here.

Photos of the show as it was exhibited will be uploaded in the near future. How near exactly, I'm not sure. Definitely before never, and most probably not before lunchtime tomorrow.

Head Paintings

These are my favored picks from this last semester's head painting class. Each is a 2 to 3 hour head study in oil.

The Color of Character: Residents of N206

These are the first part of my semester long illustration project, where I wanted to portray each of my eight roommates from this last school year. Every one was set up in a pose reminiscent or telling of their personality, and their respective color washing comes from my interpretation of their personalities as based on color psychology.

Look What I Found!

I finished this editorial piece about comparing baby and dog IQ's almost a year ago, and I realized that it was never put up on my blog here. It was just sitting in a large stack of past projects. I apologize for that gross oversight. Here you go!

Art Meets Dentisry... Sort Of

This is a piece I did during an Art Jam activity last week, and which I'm submitting for the Annual Vending Machine Show. I thought to myself "Hey, why don't I draw something about a dentist?" How it turned out creepy from there I'm not sure. Maybe it's just that time of year.

Caught (Like Father, Like Son)

These two pieces, which actually sit atop each other similar to what you see, were my submission into BYU's Nature and Nurture: Narratives of the Family Student Juried Show. I won't explain anything else about them. The message should be fairly readable.

I will admit that the color is a little off between the two, but these were photos taken after it was framed, so whatya gonna do?

Special thanks to my sister, Beth Summers for taking the reference photos I needed, and to her husband, Brad, and son, Will, for being my models. You are now immortalized in art. So you're welcome.
