I just got back from a 9 day excursion to Philidelphia, Deleware, Washington DC and New York. It was really fun and I got to see lots of great Illustration. I'll soon post some pics from the trip. In the mean time I's gots ta start catching up on me homework so I'd thought I'd start with this.

Pixar People

The good people at Pixar came and visited BYU again. It's always nice to have them come and hear what they have to say and present. The pizza and the free paraphernalia was nice too.

Too Slow Joe

Cruddy scan of a character I did for a class assignment. Good old gouache. I was driving up the canyon and saw this guy where they were doing road work. Of course he was the only one working.
