A character lineup of one design take on my two main characters in different stages in their adventure.

paintinnnns dump

here's some more paintings in various states of completion:

A sailor on a ship exploring the Arctic loses his nose. My concept for the thesis film has to do with the search for the Northwest Passage, and some pretty crazy stuff went down up there, legit.
Aaaand here's an icy-looking sea captain as well.

Apparently everything I do is Arctic themed, I don't know. This one's gotta get finished some day, it is a present for my good friend, former roommate and fellow fourth-year animation student, Frank Madden. Just two monsters having an interesting discourse at sea, guys.

so I do actually exist

I figure I better post a painting I was working on in the summer. It isn't finished yet, but since we're getting into the swing of our thesis films now I don't expect much time to nitpick in the near future.

Smerdyakov is the most frustratingly unknowable character in Dostoevsky's Brothers Karamazov. Every other character in the novel unfolds psychologically before you in such a remarkably believable and fascinatingly human way, and then there's this gap where Smerdyakov is working unknown things in the dark in his head and Dostoevsky never fills it in. He's an attractively repellant character to me and it really got to me that he never explains his actions in the novel--which is the whole point, I think. So here's some Russian Lit fanart of a real twisted, morally despicable coward wooing a lady with his guitar skills, I guess.

Also I do lots of art, I'll post more of it sometime.
