This is the final illustration which I created using the design for the Mexican wrestler from the previous post. The concept I was given for this illustration was that a team of scientists had been combining the wrestler’s DNA with the DNA of various sea creatures in an underwater lab.
This is a character design I did for Structural Drawing class. We were supposed to design a mexican wrestler. Then we were supposed to take the mexican wrestler we designed and transform him into a half man half sea creature monster. Yes this is what I am going to college to do.
These are some book covers for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald that I created for Advertising and Packaging Illustration last semester. I was trying to create a minimalist representation of a baby with an old man’s personality. I created two versions, one with a face and one without a face, but I’m not sure which I prefer.
A Gerald tissue box that I created last semester for Advertising and Packaging Illustration. The tissue is his tears! If you’re not familiar with Gerald he is a recurring character from my webcomic, Lemon Inc.
More stuff from last semester. This was a project for digital paint class. We were supposed to create a poster for the Ontario Library Association’s annual Super Conference that we would enter into a contest to be chosen as the official poster. The theme this year was “Think it, do it.” I chose to use blueprints to express that idea. I didn’t win but apparently I was the runner up!
I remembered that there’s some stuff from last semester that I never posted anywhere online. This was a project for Digital Paint class where we were given black and white lineart which was drawn by Omar Dogan and we were supposed to clean it up and colour it using methods which he teaches in a series of videos which we were given. I’m super happy with how the colouring turned out.
Omg I love this artistOh, cool! I wasn’t familiar with them but I’ve followed them now!
Q:hiiiiii. I followed you here from the #Seneca tag. I was wondering if I could ask you a couple of questions? I might move to Canada soon and I have to study something and Im having a REALLY TRULY HARD TIME figuring out what place is best and what courses to take? even doe I love Illustration, im kinda focusing on studying something that'll help me get fulltime jobs in Canada so I was wondering if you knew how good the Interactive Media Design program is? Can I ask you some questions?
Hi! Sorry about the late response. It was the last week of the semester so I had a lot of homework to do. Sure, I would be happy to answer any questions which you have about Seneca or Canada or whatever! Unfortunately I don’t know anything about the Interactive Media Design program and honestly hadn’t even heard of it before you sent me this ask.
However, I can tell you anything you want to know about the Independent Illustration program and the Art Fundamentals program and I know a bit about the Animation program as well. I get wanting to get fulltime jobs. The Animation industry is more based around long-term jobs but even those jobs don’t last forever. Once a show is done, you’ve got to go and find another job. Seneca also has a Graphic Design program and I believe that there are a lot of fulltime jobs for in-house graphic designers in Canada so maybe you should look into that.
Feel free to ask me any other questions that you have!
If you couldn’t make it to TAAFI, I’m going to be exhibiting at the Indy Comics Showcase at Back Space Toronto on College Street on the 26th! I’ll have Lemon Inc. books and Mystery Path mini comics as well as buttons and free bookmarks. Amanda Sandland, Shane Kirshenblatt and my brother Chris Lai will also be there and you should come to check out their comics and stuff too!
