Summer is ending guys! Nooooo. I have spent so much time at the beach this year. Living in sunny southern California has it’s perks and it’s actually pretty rare that I GO to the beach even though it’s so close. I usually just go, read a book and take a nap. Then get horribly burnt. Yay!
This is inspired by my friend and co-worker Staci. She’s a sassy ginger. I just imagine her reading a book on baking while baking in the sun, she’s prolific like that.
Oh look a Makeup Monday. I am not a total failure on the makeup front. I loved how this turned out. Honestly it’s pretty subtle just wandering around on the street, though I suppose a close encounter would get a “hey ma’am your eyeliner is bangin!” Obviously by another chick who like, really likes makeup.
I used the Sephora Collection Color Spectrum palette. It’s kind of a shit palette to be honest with you. Pretty colors, but they pretty much have no pigment when you finally get them to your eyes. I applied most of these wet so that I got color out of them. I over-lined my lips which I have deduced makes me look weird. I have a tiny mouth. I’ll just deal with it from now on. That is all. Carry on.
You know what’s great about painting a yellow Vespa? Actually HAVING a yellow Vespa for reference. I love riding it. I don’t have a car! I go to and from work or really anywhere else locally I need to be. Its a ton of fun, you know unless it’s raining, then it’s significantly less fun.
I started this little painting last night and got sick of it after a while. It’s technically unfinished and I think it might stay that way. I just don’t feel like painting on it anymore. Close enough…
I ended up with this Moleskine watercolor sketchbook. It’s honestly not my fave, though I do love that brand. They didn’t have any open samples at the store and instead of being practical and opening the plastic on one, I bought the sketchbook all willy-nilly. I do like watercolors, but am not crazy about toothy watercolor paper, especially in a sketchbook. The paper feels clunky and absorbs too much ink and color. I like when the ink kind of pools on your paper and can be built up without leaving defined lines. So I am not all that pleased with how this ink sketch turned out. You can see my red lines and I don’t much care for that. Also my paper is not yellow. These are the dangers of working in incandescent light.
Anywhosen. India ink and water. I will try and do another ink sketch tomorrow on different paper.
I like video games, but mostly the adventure types; Skyrim, Zelda, mostly Skyrim. My husband likes games A LOT, he plays them nearly erryday. I don’t really mind, I have drawings to do or cats to annoy- you know, important things.
He recently started playing Destiny and to my severe annoyance- he can’t pause the game. “I’ll die!” he says, which is presumably true since it takes place online… even though you’re not playing with anyone. Things like kitchen fires, cat attacks, laundry, and cooking be dammed.
So I just have to say-
WHAT THE HELL BUNGIE!! ARE YOU TRYING TO END MARRIAGES!?!!
I’ve been super busy lately. I took a little break from posting yesterday and it was nice. I did start something, but didn’t end up finishing it. I had a doctors appointment which took half the day and after it was over I was just not into doing anything. I do however have a lot of sketches in my book. So here is a little compilation of doodles from a page. Some good, some bad, some meh. Just keep drawing just keep drawing, drawing drawing drawing.
I used to be into punk. True story. In high school I had pink spiky hair and I thought I was THE coolest listening to Operation Ivy, sporting ripped jeans, chucks, and safety pins on my Jansport backpack. Which all things considered was kind of hilarious. Kids are dumb, myself included. Ah well, here is a punk inspired girl. I don’t even know if she’d be considered punk… maybe sexy modern nouveau punk. I’m going to call her that anyway and there is nothing you can do ’bout it.
I just went to a lovely wedding in Las Vegas over the weekend. I am not a big fan of Vegas as a place, actually scratch that, if there is one place on earth I would be pleased as punch to not visit again it would be Las Vegas. I am however a fan of love, and friends, and weddings. So there we have it! To Vegas I went and attended a very sweet wedding with some very sweet people. Congratulations!
Figured I would update the proper blog. I have been updating Instagram, tumblr and twitter while I was gone. So here is one for the site. It’s nothing crazy. Little lady with a little pose. And back to the grind!
Penny REALLY likes to wake us up in the mornings. You’d think the panic that she displays at her (nearly) empty food bowl would be somewhat eased by the fact that she’s still alive. Unfortunately it has not passed through her sesame seed sized brain that we wont let her starve. It’s annoying. She wails each morning with increasing (fur)vor until one of us gets up- or is able to hurl a pillow at her with tomahawk missile precision. It’s especially annoying when she gets on your chest and buh-geows in your face at close range. She has extreme fart breath, occasionally I’ve been unlucky enough to take a Penny yawn to the face. I have strong gag reflexes.
She doesn’t have dental issues. I got her pearlies inspected, she just has extreme fart breath. Good thing she is sweet lady and that we love her. She’s a character.
10 minute photoshop drawrin’
Adam was watching really terrible TV last night, lets just say I had some time to doodle. These are some very pretty co-workers and fellow Imagineers. I added some fluff to them ;P I mean c’mon, I have a site called the chubby mermaid!
I cropped the bejesus out of this thing. I didn’t want to draw a background. LAZY!
