Thesis!

So I guess I'll post what I've been working on for my thesis project so far.

My thesis is called Suburban Myths. Suburbia is a pretty mundane, isolating environment that leads people to get mindlessly wrapped up in their own repetitive, short-sighted little worlds. It's a lifestyle that values normalcy and keeping up appearances. For my project I am doing a series of illustrations that reveal the strange, mutated underbelly of suburbia - all the weird things that are going on beneath the glossy, well-manicured surface! Here's the first four:









I'm not 100% satisfied with what I've got so far. I feel a bit unfocused and like I'm sort of still experimenting stylistically. But it's a start and there are things I like about each piece. I'd like to push things a bit more with the next ones, though.

If you have any critiques or suggestions I would like to hear them!
