I did indeed complete the paitning for my Mums christmas present. AND I made her a necklace for her stocking. I took photos of the silhouettes that are on her bedroom wall of myself and my brothers heads when we were little,. scaled them and printed them to fit on this neat little pendant I bought at Michaels a few months back. Martha Stewart brand! Not a big fan but she does have some pretty darned neat stuff!
Now I'm working on faceups.....seriously not easy stuff. Such tiny little eyebrows!
Alright, so heres the painting, aaand I'm including thee photo I used for reference.

Christmas..... yugh

So it's christmas eve...I still don't have the painting for my Mum done for tomorrow..Soo hopefully I'll be posting that in the morning before its wrapped after being completed! Heh....
In other news, I am jobless again. Seasonal staff hired on in December is kind of sad when everyone else was hired on in September....means those with three months experience get kept on an not so much Ahwell, at least they seemed sincere in offering me a reference. Didn;t even have to ask!
So I'll be job hunting again in the new year.... in the meantime I'll be trying to catch up on some art type things. And avoiding people....well not all people, but right now there are five people staying at my house. soon to be six. Family. I love all of them..... but at the same time. I do not lile sitting through racist comments, slurs, and inappropriate jokes...that I get snarled at when I make any effort to correct. So apparently I have no sense of humour because I don'tthink joking about peoples cultures is funny....yeah. Or that telling your Italian boyfriend that 'we's white folks round here' is 'cute'.
Soooo anyways, I should get to painting....had to finish this little book first though. Simple christmas gift type thingy for someone in the states.

Theoretically.... now just theoretically here... When you're working a job, and get paid, you should if there are no bills to pay be able to spend your money howeveryou see fit. Or say when you receive a check as a presents... said money should go towards some kind of present to make you happy no? So I receved such a gift.... and I spent it, on three seperate purchases. Of course my parents love to check my bank account. I then get drilled on what I'm buying and paying for with paypal.... told 'not to waste all my money' like my brother did over paypal. Kay...yeah, my brother wracked up a huge visa bill in his youth. But guess what!! I'm not my brother, I', also not 16, I'm not going to order something I don't have the immediate funds to pay for! Hence the paypal.... I next get paid on the 1st. That combined with my last check...I had plans for. Very specific purchasing plans, for lovely expensive items that will please me to add to my collection.I get the 'no more spending money on the internet!' I....would like to have my bank account to myself thanks. I have no problem with mom having access to it, seeing what I'm doing on it even. But harp about everything I do? No... thank you. Now... all the shifts working a painfull job I get nothing to look forward to showing for it.... and theres my grumping for the day.

Cafe Crazy

In some ways I feel like clay cafe is a cop out....And yet, I love it! You can plan something simple, go in pint it on a plate, and be done! Voila, insta cermic peice. So far I have made a teapot and cup for my Papa, 4 coasters for my sister in law, 8 other coasters 4 for each aunt on my Mums side aaaand of course my Skull I made with Mandi. Next i will endeavour to do a portrait of my neice. A little nervercking painting ceramis is nooothing like other painting....Well, maybe acrylics ifyou're usingthem literally from the bottle nd not blending... but >,> I'm going to try blending colours Skintones oh my!! Oh maybe everythng should just be in black and white?
OH!! And I also made my neice a piggybank I am in love with, it's a black and white pig with pink stars....I'd take pictures, eventually. For now? Here is my long overdue Skull lamp..... and a random watercolour that's part of a secret santa exchange with Dolls.

Pages of fail

So I should take a bookmaking cours...okay, notI'm capable of reading the books on how to make booksand following the directions on my own even! What I NEED is some proper tools. A bone thingy, and scoringness and...yess...well, and maybe patience as well.
So basically I am doing a secret santa with the BJD world....So I made (or tried to make) aSD doll sized book. It's sort of cute...? I feel like I should try again and maybe I will but oyyy, making christmas presents is hard! Buying things is just so much easier except I have no money. ...

Ten days

So I have officially made my room livable for some semblance of human habitatoion. Yay! I really wish I had two rooms though. apartement, Yes... a three bedroom apartement one room for me, one for a roomie perhaps and the third would allow me to have a studio! I need space just to store my art supplies let alone to use them. I really only have space to do sketches right now, small drawings where I can sit in the living room. So I am at least determined to continue that one! I have twenty pages left empty in my Harlow if I can do teo a day it'll be done by next week. Yay! Then onto other things, I ahve christmas presents I need to make, and buy.... My Mum wants a painting of my neice. So I figure I can try and get that done..maybe - water colour or acrylic I am not sure.... Every eight hours or so I'm trying to put a coat of stain on my donkey...So far I fail at staining wood and it looks horribly uneven. Sand off and try again I guess? Haven't gotten back to clay cafe to finish my skull...Really need to get that done soon, tomorrow maybe...

Oh Productivity

I actually feel productive today. I got up before noon! I went into town, I painted a skull-lamp at Clay Cafe and spent some time with Mandi-darling. Our socializing aspect however of art makings sort of failed. :P Mostly because we were very focused on making pretty things!
And when you make one thing...really don't you feel like making more? So I got a couple other sketches in my old Harlow sketchbook done. Soon it will be filled and I will move on to other things! Like mosaic tables, coasters! the plate set I want or...maybe even....creaitng a body of work?

And I haven't even finished the digital version >,> So, lets just all pretend this is brand new and fabulous.

I ant to drawwww

I find myself thinkng of the things I ant to draw rather then th eprojects I need to be getting done for classes. Isn't that just the way of it?
Instea dof listening in clss today (course it was a bit of a waste of time in some sense) I drew todays entry. Just a pencil sketch right now, of twin boys. Kit and Kishi Demox. Character belonging to an online rp partner. This >,> will likely be getitng pasted into my sketchbook for the trading. But shhh, it's not cheating. I'm also trying to do a digital colouring, Yay!....and this is what I have so far

Thursday, July 16, 2009


Yeah So...I've failed at posting anything for some time. I'll get something up in a few days or so. I have been drawing actually! Just not stuff I want to put here because its for sketchbook exchanges. And then theres papers and projects and what have you.

I'm calling this my weekend post

Yep...okay, I fully intended getting things done this weekend! But I've spent most of my time in gutting my room and trying to organise and find places for things. It's amazing what you'll find tucked around your room all over the place! I have umpteen thousand pens!
So for the weekend...a dead chicken. A sketch from one of my photos at the Hunterian. I picked up my sketchbook from harlwo recently and realized I still had planned drawings that weren't done! So until it's full...My daily drawings I think are going to be what I planend to draw into those raggy pages. Then it will be done and pretty and I'll move on.

And I jsut want to be done!I want to be done and I want to be working. I want a job..I should apply for a job. But then can I handle a job and these wretched classes at the same time? With my procrastination problem?'s my drawing for today-ish...Job Angel? Hahh, looks kind of sad to me. Liek my prospects!

A preggers Oona. Hah, I love how completely disproportionate she is. So in light of this tomorrow I must work on Anatomy....Oh, and yes, Dante down in the corner. Obviously after Oona goes "I'm having your kid"

Friday, June 26, 2009

Just a sketch for today. Or for now at least.
Dante and Oona. Oona being my character...Sadly in this image she looks like a crackho..I'm hoping some colour will improve that.
Aaaand, then a colour version in marker. Not much of an improvement. This just is not Oona.

Thursday's boredom

No class today, Aaaand stuck home facing a mountain of cleaning in my room. So! Instead.
This is an attempt of sorts at my character Yelena and Keeper, Rali.
Okay, and so technically she looks kind of dominant... but then I think she is!
Prismacolour markers... scanned the line drawing first thoguh so I'm going to try a digital version.
