Excellent Track Record

Sketched this on the train ride home after hearing over and over on NPR about the fall of the Lehman Brothers corporation and how it was slightly similar to Enron ... this was all stream of conscious, so none of it really made sense till after I was finished.

... kinda funny how things throughout your day affect your sketches.

Day In, Day Out + my favorite letter P + Doodles

Started a new piece called, 'Day In, Day Out' from one of my previous sketches... I'm about 70% finished. It's acrylic and ink, on 14"x17" Bristol. I'm really happy to get to put more intestines in my work, those are always fun to draw... I also used glazing for the first time in FOREVER since college, but with acrylic this time (which I've never been too successful with, but I really like how it's working).

I've been experimenting the last few weeks on test paintings, to try to (once again) try to get the drawings to be 90% finished before I tweak on the computer. Below are three results of that, one of them hasn't even been touched by the computer! :) (I liked it too much to finish past the point I was at... can you tell which one??) I've just really missed the feel of painted work and wanted to change things up a big, and get down some thick paint, instead of the watercolor-like stuff I've done previously. Makes me feel rather bold actually...!

And last, but not least, I want to scan more of my typographical oriented stuff and put up here more often... so here is a really nice letter P that I drew on the train ride home tonight. (and a fish lady... I thought it was funny at the time, but now I guess Isee its a bit more creepy...)

A Motherload of all posts: New (ish) pieces

I finally got around to not being lazy and decided I'd post up some work I did over the past two months and update everyone. (yes! I'm still alive!)

Velvet Love.
This one's pretty small, about 15" x 15" started with acrylic+ink and then finished on the computer. I really love how the tattoo turned out.

Oh Yeah.
Just another sequel to my "Oh Me, Oh My" piece. It's all acrylic, no digital in this one. Measures about 25" x 16". I've been trying to stray away from finishing/creating work on the computer only because I'd like to have a wider range of gallery work to show.

Also, the above is a preview of a skin I submitted to Infectious. Please vote for it if you like it!

Anyway, this last month has been just a crazy awesome enjoying of life and non-internet related stuff. Went to a bunch of really fun NYC free concerts and movies, went down to Miami for a weekend, moved into a new studio apt, and my awesomely fantabulous boyfriend, Nate Bear, is now living with me! He's looking for a job, so if anyone knows of anything graphic designerly or illustration based work that fits his style, he'd love to hear from you.

I hope everyone's summer was as awesome as mine was... and if it hasn't been, make sure to end it with a bang! (I still can't believe how fast it flew by!)

<3 Happy Summer!
