Sick-day so no new artwork today, but here's this little cuttlefish (or cuddlefish) plushie I made as a gift earlier, seeing as he recently arrived at his new home in Scotland. Very cuddly, adorable, and cephalopod-esque.

Working on a gryphon today in etching class. I had to bite this in acid and re-apply the hardground to finish the image because I had an issue with the first coat flaking, you can see those already-bitten lines in light brown here.

First, made several rough thumbnails to get down the pacing/panel layout. This is the one I mostly used.
Then I made "nice thumbnails" for critique in class:
With some tweaking this is going to be on it's way to becoming a finished comic. PS Also click on any to see it larger.

My first etching, of a Mannerist-type Sphinx, from the first day of Printmaking, getting bitten in the acid bath. Sorry for the bad cell pics, I'll bring a real camera in the future.
The plate, post biting and cleaning the ground off, next to some of my preliminary sketches.

I just moved into my new apartment in NYC, and this is Desmond, the kitten that belongs to one of my roommates. He is very cute but very able-to-move-while-I'm-drawing-him.
Tomorrow I start my sophomore year at SVA, so I'll have regular updates from that assuming all goes well.
