Wishes ...


You know what I want? A pocket scanner. No, not to scan the contents of my pocket but rather a compact scanner that I can use anywhere to scan my random sketches. This would allow me to share these sketches quickly, from where I'm at (and when I'm thinking of it) and they would be ready to digitally paint. Preferably a wireless one too! I have many other wishes but I thought I'd just throw that out there in case anyone wanted to create an invention for me for the holidays. Hee hee! Oh, and I also like this poster!

Lil Pics!


Posties! From work. Hey, everyone's doing it. ^_^ One of fav animals: a chicken, my fav food: candy, one of my fav words: Beefcake, and awesome screen name: Furious Moustache and how I feel from time to time: She-Hulk! Don't read too much into the bra thing.

Halloween



Homemade costumes, candy, mummy dogs, drinks, Cranium and friends. All good things. That "w" is supposed to be for "witch" by the way. Ok, so my costume was not that great. give me a break.

Halloween Bake Off





For a bake off at work. If you didn't get one I apologize ... they were limited and very popular. Who doesn't like cupcakes in ice cream cones? Witches, mummies/ghosts and Frankensteins! :D

Wow, it's been awhile since my last post. Sounds familiar, uh oh! I have been a lot more busy that just candy sushi, but this is the pic I have currently. More to come ... I hope!

Black Canary



Been wanting to do Black Canary for awhile. Don't know why and I don't do nearly as many superheroes as I'd like. So anyway during class (typical) this came up. Not nearly as finished a piece as I really want to do but its something!

Hearts, Birds and Pillow Case Shirts






Some more crafty bits completed! YAY! The birds and hearts are made with felt, random buttons and embroidery thread. OH! And the stuffing is made from the left over bits of felt cut up into tiny pieces and stuffed inside. I'm so into using every little scrap! The shirt is pretty plain but, yes, it is made from am old pillow case. I have so many old but cool ones and I've been looking for something to use them for. I hope to work on a more interesting design so that I might be able to work on shirts for others! Sorry boys, the boxers will be out next year. Hmmm, that's not a bad idea! ^_^

Card Crafts




I have discovered a new passion. CARD MAKING! It makes me ever so happy. But it is time consuming and requires a lot of space to spread out in. Time I've got but I still lack the proper desk space. Oh well, you can't squash a chance to have fun and make pretty things!

Mother's Day Gift






This was a bowl I made for mother's day. The process needs some, uh, refining. :/ I only followed some of the directions. Make strips of paper, roll them, flatten them, glue them together in the shape of a bowl (which was the hard part!)

First Dragon


Because I hadn't worked in colored pencils in a long time I warmed up with this guy. If I had a dragon I think he'd look like that and would be just as mischievous as his grin!

Dragon Care (cont.)


Based off of Kei Acedera's "How to care for your dragon" image. What happens when those girls grow up, go off to college and meet a boy? ^_^

Let there be Sims!


I know, shameless advertising ... I did a little temp work at EA (Electronic Arts) on the Sims3 project and as it wrapping some of the art I worked on is now being shown. I was responsible for creating and texturing some Sim characters to be used in the ads as well as the videos. Check out the NY Times Article here!

More on this later!

Bollywood Study 01



Phew! This was fun. Still not as loose as I'd like it to be but I'm getting more and more used to color, shading and painting directly in Photoshop! Yay!

Something I intend to use ... once I'm done reworking it.

Sketching at the Westfield


Why is it that I can see and feel inspiration all around me almost everyday but when I pick up a pencil and try to put it to paper I clam up? I know I can draw ... I think I can anyway, but what is it that is holding me back? Yeah, I know the typical answer is just myself.

Sketches from Metamorphica





Suffice to say I felt really rusty last night. But these were just okay enough for me to feel comfortable to post. If you have comments, critiques, suggestions or know of places to get some cheap life drawing in please let me know! Thanks!
