Leopard Seal Maid

November 10, 2014

Mermaid Monday! It’s a thing. Sketchbook page. I was drawing this while Adam was doing the CrossFit Merge Pumpkin Spice Throwdown. Instead of you know, watching. Bad wife. Bad.


Celebrity Fascination

November 3, 2014

Courtney Stodden. Those two words are synonymous in my mind with sheer mind-numbing voyeuristic entertainment. It’s not a big secret that the human psyche loves a little bazaar with their morning coffee and I am no exception to this rule. I don’t generally follow celebrity gossip columns as I generally don’t care that much about celebrities- but come to that I am not even sure if Courtney IS a celebrity. I have a few fave actors that I hold in great esteem like Daniel Day Lewis and Gary Oldman… but lets face it, they’re not up to entertaining antics. Courtney can’t sing, though she tries, she can’t act though she tries, her pumpkin carving skills are questionable at best- and in the shoes she wears… im pretty sure dancing could result in very serious injuries, if not death.

Courtney, if you remember- back in 2011 was the 16 year old bride of then 51 year old Doug Hutchison (Lost, Green Mile actor). She’s a busty, vivacious, perversely religious, animal loving, entirely STRANGE human being who I am utterly fascinated with.  Like, I want to be her friend and ask her questions and present philosophical conundrums and see how she responds. Her twitter kills me, her Instagram is nothing but ridiculousness and she once got kicked out of a pumpkin patch for being too risque. I should hate her, but I don’t! she owns being a cartoon character like no one I have ever seen with a naiveté that just makes you sigh and think “oooh that Courtney, she’s at it again.” Weirdly lovable.

Clearly she is a real person with real feelings and is probably a very nice person, but to me, she is like a really cool tropical bug exhibit at the natural history museum. I am perplexed, fascinated and wholly absorbed in all the things she does. I follow her on Instagram and Twitter and I can guarantee you I’d ask for her autograph and a picture if I saw her on the street. She seems like the kind of celebrity that both knows she’s ridiculous and is totally on board with it.

Anyway, her lady mammaries keep getting bigger, as do her lips. I drew her little character today after having yet another conversation about her to friends at a party. I didn’t really take the drawings far enough, eventually I’d like to draw a very silly one with just her eyeballs and a bit of platinum blond hair peeking above her giant knockers… but until that happens here you go. Magic in lucite heels.

Nautical naping

September 23, 2014

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.



Punk Rock

September 15, 2014

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!



Extreme fart breath mornings

September 8, 2014

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.

Mermaid party

September 8, 2014

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!




Turtle power

September 8, 2014

I’ve been drawing in my sketchbook a lot lately. It’s nice. My drawings are improving I think. I like just simple little red-line sketches in a book. They’re so easy and it’s less stressful than trying to make the time for a painting… not that I do many of those.


Tombow, col-erase, digi color washes

ursula the sea witch

September 8, 2014

More sketchbook sketches. I always liked Ursula the sea witch, she has such presence. I think she might have been unlucky in love to have turned into such a cantankerous sea witch. Maybe her “garden” of poor unfortunate souls were really big jerks that deserved it. I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.

Tombow, col-erase, and Faber Castell brush pens.
