Art Portfolio ---> Bridget Faye

This tumblr is for the purpose of displaying my senior art portfolio to satisfy my graduation requirement in the Art Department of UC Santa Cruz. I work in many different mediums, including drawing, painting, metalworking/sculpture, photography, and digital video. This is a sample of my work accumulated from my time spent earning my degree at UCSC.

GIF made from photos I took at tonight’s Frank Turner concert. That face…. I think this is what I will need to cheer me up from now on.

I drew this portrait in my very first UCSC art course. This drawing is basically what convinced me that I might be able to make it as an Art major.

Playing with the zoom function on my camera. This is the same dragon kite, at no zoom vs. full zoom.

Video I made a while back for a class, now slightly re-edited. I enjoyed putting this one together quite a bit.

Color and B&W versions of the same photo, taken at Burning Man. I love that the two versions have very different feels.

Series of ink washes/drawings of various animals, on paper I stained with black tea. Used a variety of pen nubs and brushwork for different effects.

Hat or…?

Short, silly film I made one night when sleep was not forthcoming.

This is Wee Box Robot. More metal fabrication. His arms are hinged so that they can move around and help him balance. 

1:46am

My Mighty Dragon. Another metal fabrication project. His mouth is hinged so it can open and close, and his stomach is hollow so you can actually keep things inside of him. A perfect guardian of treasures.

The skeleton was welded together in metal shop. Then I skinned it with and old pair of jeans, and painted several layers of black over it, followed by an acrylic tint that changes the color of the dragon from purple to black to green, depending on the angle and light.

Pictures of my first metal fabrication project, a chicken-footed house inspired by the Russian fairy-tale character of Baba Yaga.
