Shitay Metaphors

2nd year Core Concepts class was 50% narrative illustration and 50% metaphorical illustration. I'm much better at narrative... and rather mediocre at metaphor. It's a really big learning curve, and really important to know for sure, but not that enjoyable (for me at least).

Based on "work & play"

A mock editorial illustration talking about Emotional intelligence and the 5 different areas of it

After Effects AKA I'm not an animator

My final 'animation' for my Electronic Media class. I am a terrible animator and anyone who can makes things move well by drawings gets 100% of my respect. It's a totally different way of thinking.

Despite that I had a lot of fun putting the whole thing together, After Effects is a really neat program. 
(Didn't have fun animating though fyi)

And here's the cat (created in Illustrator and photoshop). I really like the cat. Actually the 3D stuff in Illustrator is nifty when you use it to create stupid characters.
