Robin Hood: Two Page Spread

My assignment for Book Illustration this week was to illustrate a two page spread using one of the characters we created.  I went with the Robin character who is at summer camp and who steals from the boys' camp across the lake.  This piece depicts a scene that would take place in this alternate version of Robin Hood.

Second Semester Thesis

So... for my second semester thesis project, I'm developing a series of activities/games/flash cards/etc. for kids.  My idea was to focus in on one of the cities I created a map for last semester.  So this is a Japanese game called Gomoku.   It's basically tic tac toe but five in a row.  It's been really fun working on it. Here's the game so far:

Robin Hood Characters

For my Book Illustration class I had to choose a familiar character from a known story and re-imagine that character in five different ways.  I chose Robin Hood.  Here they are:
Robin who wears a Hood: He's a Bill Gates-esque character who is very computer savvy; Stealing money from large corporations and giving money to the poor; 

Robin: Spending her summer at Shearwood Forest Camp; Camp's best archer; stealing food and other goods from the boy's camp across the lake

 Rob: mobster; stealing money from corrupt banks; giving money to those in need
Robbie: a noble raccoon who steals food from the gluttonous humans; giving it to his animal friends

Robyn: Mission Impossibe-esque heroine; Using high tech gadgets to sneak into the homes of corrupt business tycoons; Giving money to those in need
