Overheard The White Stripe’s “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” at work one day which inspired a sketch…   Then an edited sketch/traced copy for painting…   Here’s a nice sneak peak in a fancy angle for funsies…   And here is the final result. Worked to keep the painting as sweet and sophisticated as […]

A Deep Slow Panic

A Deep Slow Panic

So those who know me understand that since the tender sweet summer of my 14th year going on 15, I’ve had a pretty bad crush on everything AFI. Though it has possibly wavered in presence throughout the years, has always been lurking around my aura to some unhealthy degree. Like, I bought 7 copies of Decemberunderground […]

What I used to do at work when I had time

I was going to title this “What I do at work when I have time” but alas, slow summer days are gone. Anyways. If there is a day where I find myself not so busy I use my time to collect inspiration on Pinterest and end up sketching one thing or another. Usually it is type […]

Darker, Now

So the BF has been wanting us to do a project together, possibly of the graphic novel variety. The subject matter would be somewhere within the horror or mystery genres.  I am into it, especially when he pointed out 30 Days of Night as an inspiration. I’ve also been doing character drawings for an ongoing […]

Lovely Creature Pt. 4

Lovely Creature Pt. 4

Welcome to the epic conclusion of the Lovely Creature project!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh! Anyways. Here is the ending which depicts our creature being captured by the desert and suggestively dying, or as I have interpreted it, turning to some sinister side to never come back. Enjoy!   This is the final spread so I wanted to go […]

Lovely Creature Pt. 3

My book for The Sketchbook Project has long been submitted now. I’m pretty excited about getting updates about it as it travels the country with thousands of other books. In the meantime, here is the middle to almost end of the book. This is the part where creatures/strangers appear and it gets kinda creepy and […]

Lovely Creature Pt. 2

  My book for The Sketchbook Project is now done. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out though it was not as I originally imagined! Lots of sticky collaging involved, which made my drafting table look kinda like this:   Oh well. Here are some spreads from the beginning to middle of the book. […]

So since I must send back my sketchbook to The Sketchbook Project  by January 15th, I needs to be getting serious about working on it. My goal for this month is to finish which hopefully I’ll be able to do in between all the holiday madness. Anywho here is some progress (please excuse my fingers). Die […]

Dalvero Drawings

So since it’s been almost a full year (!) since I attended classes at Dalvero Academy, and since I’ve been making myself crazy with personal projects and making the Pets thing happen, I figured now is a good time to post some drawings from the class. I took a five week figure drawing course and […]

November Update

Since I failed to post anyyyything on here last week I feel I must update you on my status as of late. Last Friday was my Mama’s birthday. As a present, I did a pen and watercolor portrait of the two puppies cause I found a wicked cool red frame and had to fill it […]
