Flaming Peppers

Designs for an imaginary snowboard company, Flaming Peppers, for 2D. I hate pepper-themes.
It was also a color study. Hence the two colors.
I actually didn't like my original design [the red one], so I did two completely [COMPLETELY] different designs, but my class took a look at all 3 and liked this one the best... Which shocked me and kinda made me sad, but I continued with this design to see what happened. Voila.

Blurry, but I'm not too distraught about it....
This project is a work in progress.

Of course the momentous 100th post has to be something terrible... xD

Catching up on documenting a semester of work....

Media I Stop Motion from Alexandra Fritz on Vimeo.

The title says it all. Here's a claymation I did for my Media I class last semester.

I'm incredibly far behind on my documentation!

All of these images are really huge if you click on them: I have them print-ready.
What I did was leave the lens of my camera open for about 10-15 seconds, turn off all the lights so the room was pitch black, then shine a flashlight on my own face as I moved around the room. It was a fun process; not the most incredible photos, but I had fun taking them.

I have A LOT of work to catch up on posting, including an enormous 12-image project from my 2D class a couple weeks ago. So you have that to look forward to. Or not look forward to. Whatever.

Just some portraits of some beautiful people

First two: Elaina Lordan. My favoritest bitching partner.
Last two: The Fleals. My favoritest partner for everything except bitching because that job belongs to Elaina.

Raft of Medusa(?)

So this is THE MCAD Drawing 2 assignment. They project a master drawing on the screen, blurry, and bring it into focus as you go on with the drawing, at which point you discover the projection is upside down, and then you realize it's the Raft of Medusa, and then you look at your drawing and you are filled with grief.
[Note: My image is a flipped version of the actual image because I was looking at it on a slide project. And upside down. And blurry. But it was fun!]

Pretend this didn't happen.

Experimenting with a new material on a huge drawing is an awful thing.
Damn you Drawing 2!!!

For 2D class. The assignment was to make a notan composition using only white paper, black paper, and black tape.

Drawing 2: Post 2

Planar analysis of figure.
Done in graphite pencil and Indian ink.
Killed me.

[NOTE: Full pixels are really huge because these are ready to print]
Another big 2D project. This is my favorite class this semester because we do the most work in it.
I probably shoulda/coulda/woulda spent more time on this, but I wanted to plow through and get a lot done today, so here it is. Step 1 of the assignment was to gather photos on a certain theme from a short list of potential objects given to us (I chose toys which I developed more specifically into Barbies). Step 2 was to trace the objects and scan the 3 best tracings into the computer. Step 4 was to trace those tracings in Illustrator.
Then, the final step was to create 4 images using those tracings based on four words given to us in class, which went thus:
Image 1: Tension
Image 2: Isolation
Image 3: Force
Image 4: Distraction

Remember when I used to do this more?

Here's a link to an illustrator I've been liking lately:


Another oversized image....
For my Media I class. The assignment was to show a change over time for the all school Space-Time project.
And Jackie is just a little pretty. JUST A LITTLE.
Actual print size: 11x17"

Collage for 2D

2nd to last one for 2D: a collage on a photo from my documenting process of the discolored walls.

Stencils 'n Stuff

Another part of my 2D project. This one's a series of stenciled-on spray paint designs based on some of the distinct shapes I saw in the discolorations... so. Yeah.

Another one for 2D

This painting is 2x3', on cardboard. I hate the way it looks in a photo simply because the photo cannot capture how much I love the way it is in real life.
Based on a texture I found on a decayed wall; just like all of this work.

Thursday, September 10, 2009


Another one for my 2D class project on wall decay...
Actual print on 13x19" paper--- but with a lot of white border, keep in mind...
