Season's Greetings

Happy Holidays! Yay! This was for Allan's class. We had to make a holiday illustration based on a quote. I chose "Christmas isn't a season, it's a feeling." Cute warm and fuzzy times! :D

Hurry Up, Mr. B!

Cover re-do for my most favorite game, Bioshock. Too bad I'm gonna be in Japan when the new one comes out. >:(

Keepin' it creepin'.

Footware Aficionado Cover

I did this for my GD 1 class. The assignment was to create a magazine cover, so I chose Footware Aficionado, as I really enjoy their art direction. (c) Abby Boeh 2009

Thanks to Nick Iluzada for all his input.

Go Green!

This was my submission for the (mandatory) poster competition put on by the MICA Illustration Department and the Baltimore Office of Sustainability. It was supposed to evoke the spirit of Baltimore and show that everything you do to help the environment benefits everyone in tons of ways! I personally try to recycle things and turn off the lights and whatnot. If it saves me money, why not!

Anywho, I missed cartooning hella lots, so I was pretty fond of this poster, and though it didn't win anything, my pal Nick Iluzada did, and my bfffff Cailin Nealon got runner up! Swell!

YES! Props to my girl Sam for this great idea!


Some work from this semester.

These images are from my Concepts I class with Allan Comport.

An editorial piece for the novel Inherent Vice by Thomas Pynchon. I did it in gouache and the colors got a little weird and then I tried to fiddle with the levels in Photoshop and... well, you know. Shrug. Freakin' Daniel Krall's piece totally blows the ones from our Concepts I class out of the water. Sigh.

A piece to go with an article about wines for different occasions to go with a pamphlet for the movie Sideways. Apparently there are appropriate wines for doing exercise. Who knew?

These are from my Eros class with Jose Villarrubia.

A piece to go with this article from Savage Love, a sex advice column.

A piece involving romance. What's more romantic than football players in locker rooms?

A poster for our school's guest speaker Annie Sprinkle. The print one has red glitter on the nipple tassels. :)

Lastly, a pinup of Wonder Woman. Yeah!

Soooooo. This is what I turn in for grades. What is wrong with me.

This was for Allan Comport's Illustration Concepts I class. The assignment was to illustrate the word "killjoy." So obvious first idea was killing unicorns? I don't know.

SOME STUFF!!! I got really excited by Project Rooftop and Jemma Salume this summer when I had some free time, so I decided to try my hand at it. Also I reread Paradise Kiss by Ai Yazawa and wanted so badly to draw fashion things. Therefore this post is happening.
Sketch for Wonder Woman which I plan to finish one day. Obligatory Sailor Moon.
Power Girl Vampirella, girl Robin, and Wolverbean. Supes!

From the JCrew catalogue.

So there you have it!

Scooby Gang Redesigns

I was being a TA for Greg Houston ( who is a badass, at MICA's Pre-College program, and one of the assignments was to redesign a classic team of four into a pro-wrestling team. I got really excited and decided to try the assignment out, but I got so wrapped up in redesigning the characters that the whole pro-wrestling bit went out the window.

Fred and Daph are the worst. I mean, just look at them. The worst.

So I also re-watched the live-action Scooby Doo movie (the first one, which is awesome btw) and Fred says the EXACT WORDS of this picture above to Velma. I secretly am totally rooting for them to get together because Daphne is kind of useless anyway. All in all I really REALLY love drawing Fred. A lot. Too much, maybe.

Star Trek! (and other less important things)

So me and my bro are really into Star Trek. And we talk about it all the time. Seriously, we make references to Romulans any chance we get. Stupid Romulans. I think this might be my father's influence. I have heard rumblings that growing up in Kansas is very boring, and to stay entertained, my dad would marathon it in his basement with the A/C turned all the way up and pretend he was in space. Just saying.

I'm feeling better about comics than I have all year. Most comics now, I feel, are kind of TERRIBLE. The same old same old over and over, and even the good ones fall to cliche and poor writing (or poor development, maybe). Especially being at MICA, where everyone is influenced by all the same artists, authors, ideas, and peers, it's nearly impossible to break away from the norm. Being away from that all summer has renewed my faith in comic-kind. Don't let me down, world!

PS] I love Beyonce.

Summer Stuff Part 2

HAHAHA HOO BOY. Brian Ralph had us do a comic in another artist's style, and who else would I pick but my super faves, Hellboy and Scott Pilgrim (there's a movie coming out, check it)! Yeah, so this is a page right out of Hellboy. If you pretend that I'm Brian Lee O'Malley, it's totally cool, right? Also, I did a character study before-hand so I could make sure I knew which end of the brush to use (it's the end with the bristles) which I thought turned out pretty ok, so here it is for your viewing pleasure!

Summer Stuff Part 1

Here's my final comic for Brian Ralph's class this summer! You can't see the rest of my comics until I can sneak into the studio and get at the big scanner!

Anyway, I only had time to color the first page (and shoddily at that, oh ho ho), but angry tiny nerds are great. (SECRET: THE COOL KIDS ARE BASED OFF OF MIKA NAKANO AND BRIAN RALPH TEE HEE.)

Character Design

These are for my Sequential/Character Design summer class with Brian Ralph. The top is a rabidly riteous pilot and the bottom is my odd couple, Black Scarf and Yolene. When my scanner stops fritzing out, I'll post my comics and transformation assignment. :D

My deck of old west funtimes playing cards done for Daniel Krall's Illustration II class. I like shamans and sad dudes in jail.

Marie Antoinette's bed chambers before and after the revolution to convey "ordered" and "chaotic." Or "decadent" and "humble," although it doesn't fit those as well. This was for Daniel Krall's Illustration II class.

So many hours spent on this... /dies

Probably the greatest drawing I have done to date.

Frazetta Copy

I cry 100o tears. Frickin' Photobucket deleted this for being copyright infringement or something... D:

Okay, just to reiterate: this is a Frazetta MASTER COPY done in Photoshop entirely by me to learn to paint for John Malloy's Advanced Photoshop Techniques class. And sexy ladies are awesome and Frank Frazetta is the man.
