34 Going On 12

(an immature 12) One post since 2014. This makes two. I would say I feel like a failure for not keeping up with this or that, but that’s not entirely right. I’ve been keeping up with other things — taking care of myself and my surroundings. Simply, unwrecking my world. I moved and that has improvedContinue reading “34 Going On 12”

The Sketchbook Project 2014

This thing has to be postmarked in three days. THREE DAYS. I’ve been making progress — more progress in the last week than I made in 6 months — and I still have a bit to go. 9 pages, I believe. My biggest issues with this project (or any creative project) are fear, poor planning,Continue reading “The Sketchbook Project 2014”

Sketchbook Project 2014…

Every year I do the Sketchbook Project offered by the Art House Co-Op in Brooklyn, NY. And every year I don’t send a damn thing in.  Well, last year I did.  I think.  It’s just that I get so excited about it and then completely drop the ball because of a variety of factors: fear,Continue reading “Sketchbook Project 2014…”

World of Art Showcase: Raleigh

From November 1st to November 3rd Raleigh’s convention center hosted the World of Art Showcase, sponsored by our favorite art store, Jerry’s Artarama.  In trying to think of how to describe the event, all I can hear in my head is “Wow”.  That’s about all I’ve been able to express about it during and after.Continue reading “World of Art Showcase: Raleigh”

At the moment, there are only 4 ACEOs in my Etsy shop.  Halloween themed ones because, well, Halloween is awesome (as ifContinue reading “Etsy shop update…”

Sketching at the NCMA…

Courtesy of Jerry’s Artarama of Raleigh, NC.  For those that follow, you know how difficult it can be for me to step outside my front door. I felt that if I didn’t take this opportunity that was provided by both Jerry’s Artarama and the North Carolina Museum of Art, I would forever regret it.  So,Continue reading “Sketching at the NCMA…”

Illustration Friday: “Eye Glasses”

Sweet jayzus, it’s been a long time since my eyes graced the theme for Illustration Friday. This week the topic is “Eye Glasses”.  I feel that this illustration needs a story, so I’m going to tell you one. When I was a little It, I developed a passionate madness for a gorgeous, gorgeous man lovedContinue reading “Illustration Friday: “Eye Glasses””

Stu-stu-studio…

Alright, so I have bits of my work area set up and I even started working on doing something with 2 corkboard bulletin things I’ve had for…7 years (“Hello, Hoarders?  This is It. We should talk.”). At this moment I’m debating whether not I will share photos of the work area considering that it’s stillContinue reading “Stu-stu-studio…”
