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 […]

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 […]

Leah’s Flowers

  For Christmas I did a watercolor painting to give to my baby second cousin Leah. This was her first Christmas! She is the joy of my mother’s entire side of the family. Especially since after her, I’m the youngest member of the group and I certainly do not look cute wearing big hair bows […]

Sunflower & Santa

  So, let me tell you. The madness has begun. My mother does her Christmas shopping from September to November so that she has all of December for wrapping presents. I would just like to share what our guest bedroom looks like right now. Also you will notice I have added that slightly blurry warm […]

Eyeses

So here is technically what I am counting as the last drawing for October:   Still trying to mix in some things I am learning in watercolor class, but in my own way. I think sometimes there are too many techniques I want to try and they don’t mix, or I go a bit dark […]

Watercolor Class Landscapes

These were done during the second class, finished them up at home. My teacher is kind of a master at wet on wet and making everything look crazy effortless and building up transparent layers. The backgrounds on these are actually in acrylic, a handy trick I never knew about before. After the acrylic dries it […]

Water Portrait

Am totally late for my “illustration of the week” gig. Last week was very busy! In a good way. But it did not leave much time for personal projects such as finishing this!:   Very loose portrait idea. Inspired by this exercise I started in watercolor class but have yet to finish:   This was […]

Owlature

Although Pandas are my number one favorite animal of all time ever, I do have a soft spot for owls. I think the fact that there are so many owl necklaces, prints, patterns, catch-all dishes for God’s sake, etc speaks of just how interesting and fun they are to interpret creatively. Here are my babies: […]
