Mossy (detail) — March 6, 2014
I’m on the radar again, which is awesome and i feel wonderfully loved!
Here’s me being stoked that you all exist and think I’m OK enough to follow!
Candylipstick posted a random selfie and I was feeling mopey and thought drawing cool hair would be fun and it was.
But I felt weird because I was just very casually like, “I’m going to draw this person I kind of know from the internet.” And then I remember I probably did the same thing at some point. To the same person. Right? That happened, didn’t it?
Anyway, I call this “cool hair shapes.”
Troubles in the land of the lady with the lizard skin
Today I woke up with swollen, puffy eyes and a lingering feeling of some sort of immune system disturbance. I don’t feel sick, but my immune system is reacting to something, either allergies or a bug of some sort. But swollen eyes are a totally new thing to me, and today was my first day at Starbucks! Ah!
But I calmed down and went about my morning routine, adding the new step of spraying some sunscreen onto my arms.
During critique in rendering later that day I noticed little red spots all over my arms and silently felt a wash of doom and foreboding: I was terribly ill, and I wouldn’t be able to go to work (which would of course be bad, bad, bad on your FIRST DAY). There were about twenty on the under side of my arms, which are very pale, and probably just as many on the top (where a lifetime of freckles obscured them). They didn’t hurt or itch, but they were very apparent. I pulled up my sleeves and there weren’t any on the part of my arms where I hadn’t applied sunscreen or exposed myself to the sun.
It took ten minutes of silent terror before I convinced myself that it was just a reaction to sunscreen (which I’ve already gone through in the past few weeks) and I probably have seasonal allergies I didn’t know about until I moved to Orange County.
Anyway, my first day of work was fine. But I might be dying a red, silent, blotchy death.
Reminiscing about the jelly fish bbs I met last summer.
Flowers and aliens and ghosts and space junk - original watercolor and mixed media art from yet another California-based artist.
For one thing, I’m not taking commissions. I just got a job and Starbucks and I’ll finally have regular money again. It helps that my school schedule (though still herculean) is much more manageable. So I’m not broke and I’ll have no time! But! When I do art for pleasure it always goes right up for sale on my etsy.
Well, the new things I posted this year are up for sale over there. SO GO CHECK IT OUT GOSH.
Thursdays are my exhausting days. *request time*
I wake up at seven, start class at nine, and toil on until 10 pm (or earlier at the mercy of my western art teacher). But I have two one-hour breaks in there, and I want to start doing something productive and fun during those breaks!
Today I’m going to bring my tablet and my laptop with me to school, so fill my inbox with requests and I’ll get back into practice with digital art by drawing stuff!
(If I forget to do this because I have died of exhaustion between rendering and portrait painting please forgive me and remember me as I was - still kind of flakey.)
What do you want me to draw?
