Thumbnails for the Yale Record Nautical Issue

I’ve got a new phone, the Motorola Moto X. If anything about it particularly strikes me, I will write a short review after a few more days/weeks with it.


I have finally, finally taken a first step towards working on one of the projects I had for the summer (other than German). Above you can see some thumbnails for a magazine cover illustration I need to submit a first draft of by June 10th.

This is one of those things I just find ridiculously difficult – drawing scenes and placing people in them. The only good compositions I have are ones that draw heavily from existing Golden Age illustration. I know that developing the mental camera takes a ton of time and practice, but continually running into this wall is disheartening.

I’m looking forward to starting this one my AD approves it though! I’ll most likely be doing that in Germany since I want to use the time I have left in New Haven for work that requires uninterrupted focus.
