I have a show at Occidental College later this month. Can you guess the theme? Did you say "mythological creatures"? If you did then you're right!

I don't usually put up rough, ugly, crazy sketches like this, but I feel guilty for not updating in forever, so you get a sneak peak at my process...whatever that may be.

Right now I'm focused on creatures of the mostly Greek in origin. Later there will be fairies! I like to delight and indulge my inner seven year old with the skills of my outer 24 year old sometimes.

There's a lot of mental static on these pages. I do a lot of thinking/drawing/scribbling when I figure stuff out for pieces. I know a lot of it probably doesn't make sense to you, but that's okay. I'm the only one who sees it most of the time anyway.

I've had a lot of these guys rattling around in my brains for a while. Like Mr. Poseidon.

Mermaids! Yes!

More soon.

I would love to see Medusa in your style. I think its really refreshing to see your rough sketches, though I agree, I never really feel up to sharing them. It is also nice to see an update! Can't wait to see more!

Sweet, Brigette! Your Poseidon looks like a real badass.

Awesome mythological creatures Brigette!
the third 3 one from top to bottom is my favorite. I love the goddess holding herself in the sun. That would be a very appealing and unique piece to design.
