I painted this for someone, and I really wish I had a second copy of my own because it took me WEEKS to complete (I was pretty busy with school, too). I was so proud of all the detail work, especially in the section on the right. The painting is a compilation of 13 different … Continue reading Album Art Compilation
This piece was a semester long project for my senior year art class (Markings, Methods, and Materials). I asked 100 people to follow a simple set of drawing instructions, and at the end of the semester (literally the night before the due date), I compiled them all to display different interpretations of the same words. … Continue reading Control Project

After living in this apartment for almost a month, the time has finally arrived for me to identify these Flaws, … Continue reading Design Flaws in my Summer Apartment
Last fall, I took a class called "Medical Imaging: Theory and Implementation", one of the graduate level classes offered as a capstone for my specific concentration within my biomedical engineering major. The course, taught by a really cool professor named Dr. Parker (he's done a lot of REALLY dope and novel research in several medical … Continue reading The Science I Will Do
