Tea Party Queen

My first assignment for my Illustration Portfolio class. Based off of this article. This bitch is crazy/terrifying.

Obviously, it's a twist on the famous Titanic scene, with Sarah Palin holding up the Tea Party's overnight celebrity, Christine O'Donnell. The men in the background are a play off of the 1773 Boston Tea Party, where they are throwing cash overboard rather than tea. If the GOP supports her campaign, they'll just be throwing away money because she is virtually unelectable.

Morning Commute

This is kinda old. The assignment was to illustrate our idea of "breakfast". I rarely wake up early enough to eat breakfast, so this shows how rushed I am in the morning. The breakfast being my mug of coffee, of course.
