Trike Filp by Chase-Falkenhagen
Trike Filp

Page from a children's book I was hired to illustrate that's due out this Thanksgiving (2014). I'm authorized to showcase this work in my portfolio, but you are not authorized to use this copy written work in any form. Thanks. 
Rabbit Head by Chase-Falkenhagen
Rabbit Head

Made out of mattress foam, fleece, sculpting wire for the ears (Got the inspiration from Adam Savage's Dr. Octopus costume from an episode of Tested) and lots of hot glue. The ears are made out of high-gauge sculpting wire, so the are flexible and you can bend them to shape (ie, if you want the ears to fold out 1/2 way up, they will stay that way).

Lightweight, but fairly large (roughly measures front to back ~22 inches, top to bottom ~13 inches, side to side at it's largest is around 10.5 inches and the ears are ~ 20 inches long) You can see out of the eyes, but you will find yourself turning your head a bit as they ARE on the sides. I was able to walk up stairs and us the computer at my office while wearing it and later that night walked a solid 20 blocks in the dark down a fairly busy sidewalk without tripping or running into people. Fair warning, I did get a slight headache from turning my eyes to the side for such a long period of time, but then again, it's not really something you want to wear at your desk all day anyways!

So how do you wear it? The "hood" is permanently attached and you tuck the fabric (an extra 8 inches or so to prevent it from popping out) down the back of a jacket. I have a pretty big head and am the model in this photo. I'm 5' 11" and I had no issues with it tipping off or sliding due to the foam inside being tight enough to stay put, but soft enough to no squeeze my head. The inside is also lined with cotton, t-shirt like material to make sure it's nice and soft. 

The eyes are made out of canning jar lids, but just the threaded part. The rest is a light mesh (cost me 15 cents at a local hardware store) that lets me see out easily, but blocks others from seeing my actual eye behind it.

I noticed you're a graphic designer, how is that going for you? I'm thinking about majoring in graphic design so I'd love to hear what you have to say about it! Great art btw!

I've seen a lot of artists going into graphic design programs that think they will be doing "art". If you're into creating original content for say, album covers or apparel design (graphic t-shirts) or things of that nature, graphic design isn't necessarily the best field to pursue. Currently the bulk of job postings for graphic designers are looking wanting people that know Web Design, specifically HTML, Javascript, CSS, and some form of E-Commerce. They is also a huge need for UI/UX and App Developers, which over the past decade is, in my opinion, what the term "graphic designer" has evolved to mean - someone who has an eye for design, but can do a lot of code. There are always places that need layout experts and branding designers (logos, signage, letterhead, etc.) but so many people think they know how to use Photoshop now that they would prefer to do it themselves, even if it's not that good. If you want to make logos, posters, and X-Box packaging, you'd better be damn good or know the right people because those jobs are surprisingly hard to come by. If you can make an app or write up a script that will help load products faster and easier, then you'll be golden. 

What sort of things are you into or interested in? What about graphic design appeals to you to make you want to pursue it as an option?

I saw your portrait tutorial, and I think it's going to be very helpful. I've been trying to draw portraits for a long time, but my attempts have been rather unsuccessful. I'm going to keep trying though!
P.S. It's cool to see another Washingtonian around here. (:
