Pop quiz

Hey guys, this is Jeremy

1.)What have you been doing post-graduation (art-wise or life-wise) and what are your plans for the next few months?
I went down to Florida for the Illustration Academy, a 7 week intensive program run by professional (and famous!) illustrators like Mark English, Jon Foster, Sterling Hundley and a load of others. It definitely changed my life in more ways than one, and I don't say that lightly. Now that I'm back, I have been working full time at Big Huge Games, and it's going pretty good. I plan on moving into a place of my own in Baltimore, and out of my parent's house very soon so I can kick start my freelancing. Currently working on a Tor painting for Irene Gallo, and I'm hoping it leads to other assignments from her in the future! Once I get settled, I plan on doing the whole postcard thing despite Judith's hatred for them :)

2.)Where have you moved to (be specific: ex."hampden") ? Are you happy/excited/frustrated/ disappointed by your new location? Is there something about this new place you wanna advertise, or warn us about? (Ex. great Tex-Mex food, bad public transportation)
Right now I'm living in my parent's house in Cockeysville, but I'm trying to get my own place in the Mount Vernon area. I don't think there's anything I can really say about Mt. Vernon that you all don't already know.

3.)Is there something you have created since you graduated you would like to share? (it doesn't have to be an illustration)
I put some of the stuff I worked on while I was down in Florida up on my blog.

4.)Which specific color have you been using/thinking about the most lately?
I've been using the color teal a lot lately. It's been my favorite color for a while now, but I've only recently been putting it into pictures. Actually, I'm wearing a teal shirt as I write this entry, but that shouldn't surprise anyone.

5.)Tell us something about you that has changed since we last met.
Maybe I can update this answer later when I have something more profound to say, but lately I've been going art book crazy. I can't get enough art books, online or at the bookstore. I have a pretty weak collection right now.

I suggest making sure have enough shelf space before you expand your art book collection. I'm facing that very problem right now.

Yarr, I need some art books - my collection is woeful. I just wish they weren't so damn expensive!
