2009 Picture of the Day: Year End Roundup
In addition to about 50 assignments a year, for the past 8 years I have been trying to do a painting for myself every day. I don't always have the time but this year I was able to do quite a few. As always, this has been an effort to develop my own voice and abilities, and I think this was a year that I actually made some real progress towards that end. So here's my year end round up of personal work: Its not everything but most of it from the past year. If you keep telling people the same thing, ie "Work hard and eventually you will have a breakthrough"...eventually you might even listen to yourself.

2009 was a year of highs and lows, real excitement and total frustration- but I feel very optomistic that 2010 is going to be a very good year!

One thing different this year, I did alter the time limit of 30 minutes that I had been working under, when doing paintings outside of the studio. However, everything here was completed in one session.
CCA Senior Thesis: Brynn Metheney's Moare River
Another outstanding recent graduate of the CCA illustration program is Brynn Metheney. Brynn's field of interest is concept art, and for her senior project she deesigned an ecosystem, The Morae River,  complete with flora and fauna.

According to Brynn, "The Morae River is an exploration of a fictional river and it's ecosystems. I wanted to put the animal and plant species I was creating into a context where they could further evolve and shape their environment as organisms do here on earth. "

Brynn's project has been evolving along with her skills and confidence as an illustrator. She has had to be somewhat independent as our program is not direcly focused on concept art, but we try to support the students to develop towards their own interests.  Brynn has also been my teaching assistant for the last year- and she is going to be missed by the entire department. I wish her the best of luck as she sets out to look for work as a concept artist.
