Stag beetle pattern. This took a long time, and I went through at least 5 micron pens to make it. If you look closely you can see lighter areas where I started to run out of ink, but I think it adds to the charm. One of the few things I have made that I hang on my wall.

Event poster I made for the central PA AIGA chapter. This was a fun project because it was a perfect excuse to get out all of my paints, spray mount, micron pens and acrylics- the smell of college! First, I layered music paper and clear acrylic onto a board. Then, I painted the pastoral scene onto it. Separately, I painted scraps of paper, cut and layered them together with spray mount. Finally, I cut out the letters with my exacto knife and glued them in place. Lettering on the bottom right was done in photoshop.
