I really need to stop getting on StumbleUpon in the library...

I just stumbled on the coolest website ever. I have no idea who created this, but I kind of want to marry them. It's this awesome drawing board with all sorts of amazing effects. This was my first attempt at trying all the different pen effects. More to come, I'm sure, since I'm currently procrastinating the hell out of this history essay...

Pearls and Clavicles

So yesterday I made a status asking people who wanted to be drawn, because I need new portrait material. A bunch of people liked it, and although I had initially promised it to only the first person, I'm thinking now that I'm gonna do a sort of composite with a bunch of figures. If you liked my status, stay tuned... :)

It's been kind of a slow week. I was extremely lazy with this new piece, so it took me way longer to finish than it should have. I can't believe that last year I was cranking out quality pieces every week. I miss that.


Pearls and clavicles are two of my favorite things to draw. So I combined them.
Also, for some reason when I look at this I think of the song "Vienna" by Billy Joel. Not entirely sure why, but it's a great song so, hey, whatever.

Hopefully I'll get some more drawing done this weekend and can post again before Monday. We'll see....

Happy 11/11/11!!

This was my Monday

Now that midterms are over (THANK GOD) I'm hoping to be able to update this a bit more regularly. It's tough finding time for art when you're not an art student, but I find I'm much happier when I'm still creating. Also, I'm pursuing a dual major program that would enable me to sort of half major in art, which would be siiiiick. 

Oh I also went though and added all of the media used in each piece.

Happy November!
