Is it wrong?

Is it wrong of me to just not care about drawing animals? I'm much more intrigued by human figure, and the only real animal that appeals to me is the bird. What do you guys think? Should I force myself to draw animals more?

NEW T-shirt design

This is the t-shirt design I'm getting printed this weekend. Finalized. :)
Comments welcome

I did this in class. It's one of my more successful pieces. There is a lot to learn about the dimensions of the face, even when a strong light source is presented. Some of the shadows along the cheeks were enhanced to keep the image from going flat.

Also - to update on my life.
Things are better now. The things I was upset over have fallen into the background, and I have a greater respect and understanding for the way things are. To put it simple: Salute!

This strapping young fella is hosting a coloring contest on his blog and I thought I'd give it a stab as a warm up to a project I am about to work on.

Comments please

Design poster I did for my class. It's inspired by the style of Jonathan Hickman. Check him out over at www.pronea.com ! Careful though, he bites.

I did this a month ago. I see the forearm in the foreground is a little rubbery, but I think it's pretty strong proportionally :)

A more than possible new design for my next t-shirt :)
I have to very carefully consider the colors though...

Criticism encouraged.

Finding the words

There are many things I could say to gain sympathy from you, the reader, in my regard, however that is not the point of this post. I simply wish to convey to you my thoughts on my current mind set. So to continue ...
When people are in your life for a substantial amount of time, and then suddenly aren't anymore, a great reformatting is undertaken of our entire structure of life. We go through various stages to deal with the loss. Whether it be in death or a break up, we progress in each of these stages and begin to slowly adapt our lives to the change in small steps. Gradually, we become aware that person is no longer there, overcome the first stage of denial, and then drone onward into anger. It is in this time frame that some people lose their nerve, have emotional or even psychotic breakdowns and are sometimes left stranded indefinitely with no hope of moving on into further stages of acceptance. From this state we come into bargaining for our lost one to come back to us, either verbally, through prayer, or in a quiet debate with our conscience. The fourth stage: depression (the stage in which I currently reside) is by far the most indefinite of the five because unlike all others, it feeds on itself quite aggressively. I'm currently depressed over the loss of someone dear to me and as such am even more depressed over being depressed.

(I took a long pause here and wrote several paragraphs that I decided to delete)

I need to be honest with myself.
I feel betrayed.
I feel lied to and cast aside.
I am burning with rage at the moment thinking about all that has happened, and yet... I am unable to act. There is a force holding me down, telling me to rise above it all, and yet, my inability chokes me. I am struggling to understand, and consequently am failing to live.
As I am quite sure this stage of deep regret will pass I can only focus on the days before me. Counting down the minutes until I am both out of school and 21... May 22, mark your calenders : )

So where to now?
To my drawing board?
To my canvas?
To my pen and paper?

Revelations are what I'm in need of. I need to see the bigger picture -- to put this life into perspective. After all we are all just floating on a watery rock, traveling endlessly around a massive ball of fire. How much does one man's coping really matter in the grand scheme of things? My religious side tells me that it matters a lot, but my human side tells me there are people starving in my very town and my worries are minute. Regardless... I would still like this feeling to end. End and carry me into a state of acceptance.

New Design for GD

I did this as an "Identity" piece for my Introductory Graphic Design class. It is inspired by an artist named Jonathan Hickman (www.pronea.com).
Please tell me what you think.
I know it's reminiscent of sperm/egg and a jellyfish.

This is the 3rd t-shirt design for my company Entropy Design.
Sizes range from S-XL and are currently set at $15 each :)

The distorted word "Entropy" is reaching out to the geese which are trying to escape the inevitable.
I think its a strong design, tell me what you think!!
