I've been a participant in the Italian Street Painting Festival since 1999-Present. Below is the past three years of work I produced to raise money for children to have after-school art programs. Below is some of chalk pieces I created. Each composition is 6ft x 8ft. (copyrights to original artists for his/her artwork)
Contracted Freelance Job - Web Design Graphics(Shop Ad, Animated Banner, Forum Ad) Powerhouse wanted very simplistic designs with a straightforward appearance. Edited (in PhotoshopCS) purchased photography from istock.com to create these final designs.
Barron Storey has an assignment in his class where you are to create characters, a story, build a set and a final illustration. These characters were supposed to represent insecurities from your own personal life. This assignment was very exciting and really made me think out of the box. I was involved every step of the way!
Setting: Run down "freak" circus city.
Characters (shown below): Element character Water (represents love, caring), Wanderer (Dwarf - who lives in the forest, does not have any friends, anti-social), Gazelle (Animal creature - who is half human half animal, always gets preyed upon).
Here are some rough character poses and expressions for my final 30 second animated film. These were created for a school assignment in SJSU's 115 animation course (Spring 2008) My film revolves around the idea of a little girl at the beach who battles the ocean. She is determined to beat the ocean and build a sand castle near the ocean's edge. However, the conflict is when the ocean keeps washing her sand castle away. She tries to out-smart the ocean by building a wall in front of her cherished sand castle. Unfortunately, in her triumph over the ocean, she jumps around so excited not watching her feet stomp all over her sand castled *cries*
Character Personality: Spunky, Hard-headed, Determined, Driven, Aggressive, Spoiled, Loud.
