Pretty Little Liars #1 "Beer Baths Are Good For the Pores"

Pretty Little Liars #1 "Beer Baths Are Good For the Pores"

So after the Gossip Girl project someone suggested that I check out Pretty Little Liars for the next one. So here's the first of an undetermined number of illustrations based on the book. Teenage sexual tension between Emily and Maya leads to hooking up in a photo booth at a party only to be discovered by Emily's boyfriend, awkward teenage emotion ensues.
I've realized that recently my colors may have been becoming a bit overwhelming so I think I may need to tone it down a bit.

Embarrassing Moment #3 "Hot Spot"

Embarrassing Moment #3 "Hot Spot"

An embarrassing moment story illustrated this one based by "Hot Spot" Traumarama! from April 2011 issue of Seventeen Magazine. So girl is at a pool party, doesn't want to get out of the pool to use the bathroom, so she doesn't. Boy she's crushing on swims over and notices the warm spot, boy proceeds to shout out to all attending the party that he is staying in that area of the pool because it's warm.

Or if you don't like that story, it's just a nice summer pool party illustration.

Gossip Girl

Here's a little project that I gave myself over the past couple of weeks. I'm not sure I should put this out there but I'm a huge fan of the show and I decided to read the first novel in the Gossip Girl series and create a cover illustration and a couple of potential interior spots for it. While working on the project I described the book to someone as "Waiting for Godot for the Teen Vogue crowd", which is a description I'm going to stick by.

I think I really want to do more covers for Teen/YA books, so if anyone has any suggestions that'd be great.

You know you love me, XOXO
