Above is a graphite pencil and charcoal drawing .
Alex Grey was focused on the anatomy of the human body and was interested in the belief of ones third eye. He payed close attention to detail and symbolized the life's journey; mind, body, and soul to illumination through external elements.

James Jean

Alright, If you want to check out more of James Jeans work I recommend the following:

Process Recess

This is his blog, where he posts images of projects he is working on and sometimes comments briefly on his process. Prepare yourself to lose an hour or two going through the blog archive.

This site also has his store where you can buy his book, prints of various projects, and if you have a ton of extra cash you can buy some of his original art.


Professional Website

This is his online portfolio. Shows all his published work, as well as a lot of unpublished stuff from his sketchbooks.


Polite Winter

This site is basically an illustrated story/conversation going back and fourth between James, and Kenichi Hoshine. It hasn't been updated in a long while, but it's got some really interesting stuff.


enjoy.

Yoshitaka Amano

Here's a few links to Amano's works.
Amano's World/
The Art of Yoshitaka Amano

And here's a link to the video I showed in class:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZ-14-4dNZ8

I think the whole movie is uploaded on youtube, just follow the parentheses order. The movie, Angel's Egg, contains little dialog and very small amount of vigorous actions. It makes up for that using Amano's drawing abilities as well as the kind of quirky story.

LAURIE HOGIN, Jenny Olson

Below are some of the images I presented in class. Also, I've posted the link to Laurie Hogin's website. ENJOY! I highly recommend reading through some of her writings, it will help you to better understand her work.
