Our first assignment in Computer Applications was to Illustrate a fortune out of a fortune cookie, which I thought was a pretty fun way for everyone to get their own concept to illustrate.
My fortune was, "Take that chance you've been considering."
I always enjoy using bright unusual colors in my illustrations. However, one of my roommates told me that while she loved the fun flesh tones I used on the boy, they also happened to be the color of bruises. I decided that this means either that this boy lives in the Magical Land of Colorful Shadows, or he has Tried This Before.)

This was the second in-class assignment for my Illustration 1 class. The assignment was to do a sill life of food, either with a theme of healthy or unhealthy. Obviously, I chose to paint healthy food.
This is the reference photo:
I chose to change the colors, etc., slightly in the painting for a different, and I think better, overall look.
This was the first in class assignment for my Illustration 1 class. The assignment was to do a still life in black and white illustrating the concept of the commercialization of Christmas.
Here we have a manger, but instead of the Christ child it is filled with wrapped gift packages and candy. There is only one animal present with the manger, and it is a lifeless piggy bank.

This painting was done for an LDS Stake girls camp. I was a Youth Leader and one of my responsibilities was creating posters relating to our camp theme, "Put on the Whole Armor of God" and our camp hymn, "Whos on the Lords side, Who?" I think they expected something a little more slapdash and "cute", because they seemed really pleased and surprised when I delivered the finished pieces.
