In case you haven't noticed, I've continued my looooong absence from the art world.

It ends today! My lovely office-provided steno pad has become a haven for new arts. I bring you the finest offering I have, which is none other than the oft-drawn Dream King himself. He has invaded my dreams as of late, and my steno pad. I thought it would be amusing to attempt a colorpaint after months away, so I did. With my bitty laptop mouse no less! I was too lazy to dig out my tablet, but if this is going to be a habit, it will be dusted off and hooked up so proper arts may be made.

More to come...

I'm home! After my year-long exile in the UK, I am now back in the US and making my way in Los Angeles. It's good to be home.

At *some* point I will upload the doodles from the past few months, and will eventually get back into the swing of regular arts and photos.

Since I am officially lacking in the scanner department (it had to be left back home in the states when I moved to the UK), I'm going to have to take pictures of things I've been doing lately and *hope* the quality is good enough.

In related news, welcome to the first installment of the MA notebook series!

Coloring at 11.

So, about the not updating since June...*cough* sorry. Anyhoo, I actually JUST got finished filming a 2 minute "self-portrait" project for one of my film classes (the Screen Media part of my Archaeology for Screen Media MA :P) and it's actually pretty bitchin.

What did I do? I filmed myself doing Nyu's Art Meme for 2 minutes!!

It's up! omgz! There were a few more steps than there needed to be (namely doing all the editing and whatnot on 1 laptop and then emailing it to this one for the final stages and uploading) but it's up! Just a sketch at the moment, but hopefully I'll have some time to get coloring and make into something worthwhile.

Here's the story behind this one: I was bored out of my skull at work (Borders) a few days ago and came across a book that was more or less "Real Pirates" in title. I flipped through it and came across a small section on female pirates...well, just the main 2 really. Anne Bonnie and Mary Read. There was a truly ridiculous engraving of Anne Bonnie attacking some guy, and I had to laugh because the engraving itself was pretty shit and they had her opening her shirt to show that yes, she was a woman because here were her bosoms. And then I had an idea! I'm not putting a *spoiler warning* here because I don't feel like it! So if the plan for POTC 4 is to head over to the mighty land known as Florida with Jack Sparrow, and with the whole "10 years later" thing it would make it 17somethingorother, what a perfect opportunity to introduce some American pirates! Specifically a one Anne Bonnie and/or Mary Read before they teamed up and became famous. Good idea, no? Since the dates don't really matter, it could be a slightly younger version of (here) Anne Bonnie, having just set out in the world of piracy from her priviledged life in one of those plantation colonies (Virginia, I want to say). Anyhoo, I think it opens many doors for adventures and antics and dammit, I could totally rock that role!! After I finish my MA of course...

But yes. In conclusion, I would like to give a special shout out to my dad for helping me move yesterday, my full-length mirror for helping with figure reference matters, and to my special white shirt for attempting to help me get the cloth folds right. It's still a work in progress, but it's nothing more practice can't fix!

New art on the horizon! It'll be up as fast as I can get it...which will all depend on how my *new* 2 computer setup works and how fast things go with the lack of a scanner...which is buried in a box somewhere either in the next room or in the garage. It WILL be up today!

Moving is fun! (not)

So this year was ri-goddamn-diculous. I had so much crap going on that the most I could manage was some notebook doodles, ranging from random studies to some fairly elaborate uses of the mighty ballpoint pen :P
In any case, the year is is my undergraduate experience, so I have much more time now! I'll be scanning and uploading the better of my doodles and perhaps some will be made into something more exciting and elaborate. No promises ;)
But yes...there shall be more art and much less madness and/or drama, which is always a good thing.

Look!! No seriously! Look! There's something new in my gallery for the first time in MONTHS.

It took a damn long time to make (from start to finish...with a large break during coloring to get food and see Happy Feet) and I'm rather proud of it *sniff*

True, I should have been typing any one of my 4 papers, but it was nice to disconnect for a while. Papers are consuming my life.

More art to come!

Holy crap! I actually drew something worthy of further work!! I will post the initial sketch shortly. Final work will be posted in a few days (hopefully) depending on how much time I have this week and how little of it is taken up by Latin hw. You know how it goes =P

Someday I will actually update my work. Today, however, is not that day. Tomorrow isn't looking good either.

Yes, that's right. I have had absolutely no time to create anything other than a notebook doodle. It's quite sad. Luckily there is a weekend coming up where I don't really have anything planned so I may be able to put that free time to use. Maybe =P
Something will be posted soon! I promise!!
Ooo Ahhh! A new doodle! Huzzah! *throws parade*

New piece a-comin'.  I just need to find time between multiple papers and department events to properly color it :shakefist:
Not putting any deadlines on this one, since I have no idea how much time I have or how much of said time will be consumed by papers of varying degrees of death.
Just a quickly done manip to keep things going between inspirational moments.  This one comes courtesy of the lovely book Wicked. I enjoyed it long before the musical or the hype and, seeing as green is my favorite color, it felt only right =P
More art to come soon (hopefully) as midterms will be done at the end of this week...Damn the midterms!!  :shakefist:
Sweet Jesus!
I's been much too long. Again, the blame is placed squarely on school *shakes fist angrily at the campus* But yes. Behold my first official attempt at photomanipulation! I think it came out pretty tasty for a first try =P

Huzzah! A new addition at last! It's a bit work-themed, but what the hell.
So yes, now that I am (and have been) back at school for a short bit, it came to my attention that I have a hell of a lot less time for drawing *sniff*

Hopefully I'll get some inspiration mid-class and those doodles can evolve into something more exciting =P

News for today: I get to go see Tutankhamun (and the increasingly inappropriately titled "golden age of the pharaohs" *snerk*) and sound like a total nutjob as I try to sound out the glyphs with my newly acquired ability to read said hieroglyphs. Hooray hieroglyphs! :dance:

The newest addition to the gallery is here!
And for that special someone who this was created for, Happy Birthday! I love you!!! :love::blowkiss:

Got another piece in the works...this one is a gift for my boyfriend :love:, so it's taking a little bit longer than I planned simply because I want it to be perfect =p
But yes, it should be up sometime this week!
Thanks to everyone who's commented and to the 82 awesome people who've wandered by my page so far!

Check out the shiny new addition to the gallery! Yay!
