Illustration Friday: Sleep

After a very very long semester, I couldn't help but to contribute to this week's incredibly accurate topic over on Illustration Friday.

Bump in the Night

As school is taking up the very vast majority of my time, it's only fitting to reflect that here. All the hard work that goes into schoolwork should be justified by more than just presenting your work in class!
Here's my favorite project of late, whose official name, I believe, would translate from Hebrew into "peepholes." Very sophisticated.

This assignment, given in my Interactive Design course this semester, was to create something with three peepholes, with the option of interpreting the term as loosely as an art student could dream. I, being very Shana self, went for a literal interpretation. 

I set to work, very late into the night, with Monsters Inc. as my background noise, building a little paper bedroom in a box.

Creeping by the window
It was pretty funny to see my little cardboard bedroom sitting next to all the architectural structures my classmates had set up, but that's me! While the outside (not pictured - yet!) needs some work, I really love the view from each of the angles peeking into the bedroom. Although I do feel bad for scaring this little guy so many times.

I'm sorry, Blog!

I've been miserably neglecting this blog, and though it hasn't been getting much traction, my number one fan (you know who you are!) has been nudging me to put up more artwork for her to peruse in her free time. So, without further ado, here's what I've been up to lately:

Kiss the Girl

My favorite books

Hard at work

Thank you, everyone I know on Facebook, I stole your smiles.

Nineteen Years Later

Once upon a time, I thought my little sister didn't want to read. In order to bribe her to get reading, I promised her a drawing every time she finished a Harry Potter book, thinking it would take her a nice long while before she made too much progress for me to keep up with. I was very, very mistaken. In just over a year, the nine year old had completely finished the series, and was impatiently waiting for her drawings. Finally, I got around to the last drawing, so here it is!

And voila, the last of seven drawings!

Congratulations to my baby sister on becoming the biggest bookworm I know, and a very happy 10th birthday!

Television Sketches

These days, I seem to be sitting around mostly, waiting for school to start, or for something interesting to happen. Naturally, I end up watching plenty of television. Presently, catching up on seasons upon seasons of Buffy. The problem is that Buffy, like most TV shows for that matter, doesn't occupy my mind as much as I need it to. Keeping my hands busy tends to work, and my favorite way of keeping my hands busy is drawing. Thus, my most common activity becomes watching television and sketching away.

 Maybe all the punching and staking and romance in Buffy affects my drawings more than I realized.
Occasionally, when lacking inspiration, I'll end up drawing (hey, a pun!) on the episodes I'm watching. It's fun to try and catch moments or snippets from the screen, especially when the actors are all just so darn pretty! Veronica Mars and Grey's anatomy inspired a whole slew of mouth sketches, sort of a study. 

I think lips and hands are my new favorite parts of the human anatomy to draw. 
Not noses, though, noses are just bizarre.

The best kind of lifeline there is.
