A Rompo is a mythological creature from Indian and African areas.  It has a head of a rabbit, legs of a bear, arms of a badger, and ears of a human.  pretty weird.  oh yeah, and they supposedly eat humans nomb nomb.

This is for our (most likely) last project in my illustration class.  we are working with 3 other people, and we had to choose similar animal types and create a childrens book out of it.  we decided on mythological creatures.  we were assigned letters of the alphabet, and then we chose groups.  Our group just happened to get the letters A B F and R.  Which spells out B.A.R.F if you like.  so we will most likely do something along those lines.  more sketches and concepts to come.  I'm pretty excited about this project!

A linocut print I did in my Printmaking class.  We had to illustrate our reaction to a poem

Whatif by Shel Silverstein

Last night, while I lay thinking here,
some Whatifs crawled inside my ear
and pranced and partied all night long
and sang their same old Whatif song:
Whatif I'm dumb in school?
Whatif they've closed the swimming pool?
Whatif I get beat up?
Whatif there's poison in my cup?
Whatif I start to cry?
Whatif I get sick and die?
Whatif I flunk that test?
Whatif green hair grows on my chest?
Whatif nobody likes me?
Whatif a bolt of lightning strikes me?
Whatif I don't grow talle?
Whatif my head starts getting smaller?
Whatif the fish won't bite?
Whatif the wind tears up my kite?
Whatif they start a war?
Whatif my parents get divorced?
Whatif the bus is late?
Whatif my teeth don't grow in straight?
Whatif I tear my pants?
Whatif I never learn to dance?
Everything seems well, and then
the nighttime Whatifs strike again!
