purchase a print: [link]

nightmare of a piece-- started this over the summer with an ENTIRELY different composition/idea. i was originally thinking about the interior of a straight up LA bus with gold clouds filtering in through the windows but then i grew bored. i let it sit around for a few months then started taking it to one of my professors every week for a month or so...and this is what happened.

i'm just going for a concept art portfolio-- all traces or hints at 'steampunk' are completely incidental...

I'm amazed at the odds I see another student within the thousands of updates on DA that happen in just minutes, otherwise I spend why too much time on the internet :)

I admired you then and I admire you even more now :D
How's life?

Woah! What is like working for Google, what type of projects are you working on?

I just graduated last spring, but it was followed up by a family crises, so I'm only now sitting down and expanding my portfolio for work in my areas of intrest :) Otherwise I'm looking for freelance work in Illustration and Portraiture.

google is awesome-- i finished nemo recently [link]

sorry about your family. good luck with the portfolio, building it is probably the hardest part of finding work (but also the most fun)!

Woah, I think my brain just fried a little.

Jen, this is my favorite Google Anniversary piece and I am thrilled to know that you had a hand in it, or did you personally make it? :)

I stumbled on this while listening to 'Golden Virginia' by jj, who incidentally I'd never heard before. It was an interesting combination! I really like those painterly clouds next to all the art-nouveau detailing on the dirigible/bus. Wish this was real so I could hang out inside it all day :)

Very nice, and if you want to avoid "Steampunk" you can always claim your art is "Airship Chic".
