The things I tell myself.
Brush and ink.
If my life were a graphic novel, the top spread would be a follow up confession to the same character who would receive the “i really miss you” vomit. And the second is something I want to make into a greeting card, because you could send it back to me and I would totally accept that, yes, I am an asshole too.
Pen, ink, and marker.
AND OH MY GOD YOU GUYS, AFTER WHAT FELT LIKE YEARS SINCE IT WAS RELEASED INTO THEATERS (July 3rd), I FINALLY GOT TO SEE THE NEW “AMAZING SPIDER-MAN” MOVIE. I have all of these feelings, and I love Spider-man, and OMG Andrew Garfield and his butt, and I’m just going to word-vomit it all out, and I will post about this later in the week. [/dork]
If my life were a graphic novel, this would be my word-vomit confession to one character.
Pen and marker.
Started a new sketchbook. This will keep me busy on the side, though I already have several pages to share. I’m excited for this format too!
I smudged my phone number on the first page, so if you were wondering, yes, it was intentional.
Pen and ink (plus white acrylic for the first page).
What are you scared of the most?
In The Place That You Wish Was A Ghost
First time ever really painting, so this style and everything is new to me. It’s a self portrait formed from personal experiences. And why not capture myself when I’m blonde, right? Maybe I’ll try to paint more in my spare time?
Acrylic on 16”x19” canvas.
I feel a bit strange posting something that’s rather personal, but art is personal and emotive anyway. These things have been on my mind lately.
Drawing at Galley Espresso, yet again. This time it is a self portrait with some of my random belongings on the table. I have a few more sketches that I did today, but I’ll post them later.
I am not really one for self-portraits mainly because I think it comes off as being quite vain, but I feel like I should continue doing them to get to know myself better.
I finally got this scanned. The scan is a lot nicer and clearer than the photograph and isn’t covered in a yellow tint. And you can actually see details! I’m still really happy with how this turned out. And I know most of you have seen this already, but for my own archive and reasons, I wanted to have the scan up rather than just the photographs I have of it.

Acrylic paint (mainly in washes; people kept asking if I used watercolor), colored pencil, and marker. I listened to a lot of Los Campesinos! while I painted it, and even some of my vinyl records.
My completed project for class. It’s a photo of it. I can scan it later, but probably not until I get it back. It’s 18”x24”, but without the one inch border, it’s only 16”x20” (which is what I cropped it to be, since the background is to be white anyway). It’s a self portrait project which covers composition and how a figure in a blank space interacts with negative space. We were allowed to use any medium we wanted and could only use one prop if we chose to. I stylized it a bit, and decided to use one of my jar plants, basil (which in actual reality, just began sprouting!). And that pink thing on my left arm is my tattoo; it’s a koi fish with lotus blossoms!

And back to my indoor garden, everything is growing except for my rosemary, parsley, chives, and cilantro because they take longer to germinate and sprout. I want to move on to planting some strawberries…because I have many interests and many things that I want to be good at.
