Did I mention the awards?

Since I've graduated from college I've won a few awards from my work on Scroll, BYU-Idaho's school newspaper. The most recent and probably the most exciting was a first place prize for a comic strip I did last year. Somewhere on the website, it says that the first place winners are to win up to $1000 in prizes. Of course I didn't see a cent of it, but it was exciting for awhile thinking I might recieve something. I can't remember exactly what the other awards were for so check them out for yourself below:
Student Society of News Design
SPJ: Mark of Excellence Award
2006 ACP Cartooning Award

The Search Begins

I'm posting a picture from my lame sketchbook. I mentioned ealier that I'm making illustrations for a "search & find" kind of book. I want a character that can stand out, but not too much. Anyways, so far I'm come up with this character who I call Timmy. I'd like the book to be called "Timmy in Time" or something to that affect. The first few pages I'm working on are Prehistoric people and dinosaurs. It will be awhile before I can post those illustrations. I'm working on finishing details for it and then I'll transfer it to some watercolor paper. I'll wait til I get a light box to transfer the image. I think I might get one for Christmas. The light box will make transferring images a lot easier. No more graphite transfers and no more mess!

Happy Holidays!

In honor of the Christmas Season I'm posting a Christmas illustration that I recently fixed. Before, the background was lighter and there was no snow. It looked really weird. So now, I made the background darker and added snow. I hope you like it!

My Blogger Life Begins...

Welcome to the small, small world of MeMyselfandI. I've been reluctant to start a blog because I really don't think that many people care to hear what I have to say. So in case there are a few that care what I have to say, this blog is for you. I don't have much to say right now. My summer job is over and I'm back in Ontario Oregon for kicks and giggles. Actually I'm working on illustrations that may or may not help me start a career. I'll write more later. This is just a taste.
