Studio Bond Website Updates

Website Updates Include:

  • Updated portfolio with most recent work & higher quality images.  This included photographing my charcoal drawing series under better lighting conditions than before and resizing them.
  • Updated Categories for easier navigation.  Categories relate to Concept Art, unless otherwise specified (ie: Personal & Educational Projects).  This is the blue drop-down menu at the upper-right corner of the header.  Portfolio is all-inclusive, whereas the categories below are divided by subject.
  • Updated About page.
  • Created new pages: What is Concept Art? and Why Concept Art? The later was the essay I submitted to the Academy of Art University for acceptance into the MFA: Illustration program.
  • Updated Widgets – removed distracting elements of website and included more social network options through which to share art and blog entries.
  • Prints Now Available for Purchase – with the aid of my site manager, selected prints are now available for order at Imagekind.  If you would like to purchase a piece that is not available for print, contact me, and I will make it available if possible.
  • Announced that I am available for commissions.

Future Updates:

  • As I work through my studio courses, beginning this January 31st, 2010, I’ll be adding and replacing artwork as I create them to reflect the most current level of my skill.  These will probably be posted in chunks between major assignments or semesters.  Commissions may also be included in my portfolio.
  • I may make my .pdf portfolio available for download.  Currently it’s available upon request.
  • I may make my new CV available for download.  Currently it’s available upon request.
  • I plan to document the process of earning my MFA in illustration, as well as post tutorials along the way, here in my blog.

Any particular requests for site updates?  What would you like to see here?  What would make the site more useful to you, easier to navigate, or get in touch with me?  Thanks for reading!

Alex Bond grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, studied Psychology at Reed College in Portland Oregon, and completed a thesis project on Internet RPGs before discovering it was a lot more fun to draw cool things for the entertainment industry herself.  She returned to the Bay Area in to earn her MFA in Illustration at the Academy of Art University and pursue a career in art.  Her splendid knowledge about people, creatures, and history; her mad research skills; and excellent team playing nature are assets on any project.

Alex is passionate about the potential of digital art and interactive entertainment, and is deeply interested in the growth of both mediums. She believes art in the application of games serves to immerse the audience in a character’s point of view and is constantly searching for ways to enrich these mediums. She brings a unique and diversified perspective to her career as a digital concept artist, matte painter and compositing artist combined with regular jaunts out of the studio to practice traditional plein air painting.
