The Jungle Books
by Rudyard Kipling

These are a few illustrations for a project I'm working on with a friend. For a class project he's re-branding the Penguin Books logo and design. It was fun to re-read the jungle books in a perspective other than the well-known Disney version. There's a lot of heart in Kipling's words and messages that I can appreciate now reading them as an adult.

class: illustration for publishing
term: 5.5
summer 08

this was a series of illustrations on a childhood memory. in my elementary school days, we lived in glendale on a little street where there were lots of kids and a small park a couple blocks away. one of the best times of my life. played mini softball in front yards, barbie convertibles, peach pie in the summer, pink and white roller skates, sidewalk chalk, sonic the hedgehog, gex, dressing up cats and kittens, monster dogs, mysterious houses, log cabins, walking to the liquour store that gave us old magazines for free, bubble tape, rainbow brite, summer crushes, pinatas.. lots of memories. this series started because of a neighbor's clubhouse they had in their backyard. i've always wanted a treehouse but we never got one. my dad worked a job in wholesale so we always had a bunch of cardboard boxes in the garage that we played with. it's funny how expansive a child's imagination can go..

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed"

-Albert Einsten

This was a book project for Advanced Illustration Design with David Tillinghast. We were given the topic of "mystery" and were to create a book around a "mystery" topic of our choice. I've been curious/fascinated/confused about the universe and how it came to be. There are many theories and beliefs and I wanted to take those views and mix it with how I think the world may have come to be.. but, it's always changing. Science is always changing, we are always changing, my thoughts and I are constantly changing.. but the game of (attempting to) solve mysteries is always fun.

Some projects from last term...

These 3 projects were illustrating stories we listened to in class and interpreted through images. The stories were about dystopia in America and the human condition

The Hollow Men by Thomas Wolfe

The Swimmer by John Cheever (this is only a snippet of the original)

The 548 by John Cheever

I love the energy of the city and the people. I love the interactions and random happenings and colors and smells and vibrancy
