This is another personal piece I finished more recently.  Like the last piece posted, this one was also cropped a bit by the scanner.  I may re-scan or take photos of them and add those pictures to this post and the one previous.

This is a personal piece on wood panel.  Over the passed couple of months I've decided to delve into personal work and just enjoy the creative process.  I'm hoping to learn a lot more about colour and composition through trial and error, as well.

The piece was a bit larger than the scanner I used, so it's somewhat cropped from the original piece. (a bit on the left and the bottom)  I hope to be able to scan it again soon.

This is a cover illustration for electronic media class.  We were to choose a novel and illustrate the cover.  We will also design the layout with the illustration included.  The novel I chose was The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne.  It's a story about a puritan woman named Hester who has an affair while her husband is away.  She was then forced to always wear a capital letter A on her dress.

I wanted to choose a different approach to previous illustrated covers of this novel and not focus on just Hester and her child born from the affair.  I wanted to focus on the actual lust instead.  The scarlet letter A is in a white circle symbolizing her pregnancy and adultery.
