Sketchbook Project Tour 2012

I submitted my sketchbook to Art House Co op, I kinda miss it already, but very excited for the people in different cities across the states to see it. I developed a lot as an artist during the duration of this project. In the beginning I would draw people tiny with a pen. A mechanical pencil was used one evening when I forgot to bring a pen and the outcomes were very satisfying. Here is the website. project http://www.arthousecoop.com/users/torianne00

I love vectors

I absolutely miss my computer Illustration class so much. The last assignment was to do a promotional piece. My concept behind this piece is to make vegetable look awesome and fun to eat. I feel this describes me rather accurately. Bright colors and lots of love and cuteness. Enjoy!

Portrait Night!!!

First portrait night of the semester! 

 Something a little extra, I had a lovely day catching up with a good friend, Danielle, awesome photographer, here is her blog http://danielleashphotography.blogspot.com/

Open Mic Night

Every wednesday night is open mic night at the local cafe downtown, Pastry Art. 
My two roommates

The lady who sat in front of my was kind enough to let me draw her in such close proximity. She had a very happy atmosphere about her.

Late Night Starbucks

One of my favorite things to do is going to cafes and sketch, even better yet, with awesome company.
Check her stuff out on  http://friendsfromspace.tumblr.com/
Update: So i scanned it and just noticed i lost a lot of line quality, hence why I'm keeping the other photo i took from my phone up

Winter Break

Winter break is sadly over, but it has been quiet enjoyable and very relaxing. I had a lovely trip visiting my boyfriend in Maryland for the holidays. Here are some doodles from my trip. I'm rediscovering my love for graphite.


I also went to New York City with my boyfriend and visited the metropolitan museum. Cold weather is absolutely foreign to me. 

This was on my flight back to the sunshine state
and this was during my two hour wait for connecting flights. Very nice girl and her family too. I love meeting and talking to people while out and about. 
First sketch of the semester, a preliminary sketch for figure painting.
