my scanner died... :'(

A few days ago my dog knocked over the radiator... (DONT ASK ME HOW... the guys that were hired to fix my apartment... well let's just say they have NO IDEA WHAT THE **** THEY ARE DOING) ... anyway, it smashed off the prongs on the plug... and so... my scanner can no longer be plugged in... :( Luckily, I can buy a new a/c adapter to get it working again... I just have to find the right connector!!..... (I've owned this scanner for about 4 years now -- bought it used for $25, and it's been one of THE BEST bargain's I've ever spent my money on!)

Peacocks + more music to inspire

"I know you think that I shouldn't still love you, Or tell you that. But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it where's the sense in that? // I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder Or return to where we were // I will go down with this ship And I won't put my hands up and surrender There will be no white flag above my door I'm in love and always will be // I know I left too much mess and destruction to come back again And I caused nothing but trouble I understand if you can't talk to me again And if you live by the rules of "it's over" then I'm sure that that makes sense // And when we meet Which I'm sure we will All that was there Will be there still I'll let it pass And hold my tongue And you will think That I've moved on..."

Dido "White Flag"... I love how these songs evoke so many visual images from me...

Good Girls Finish Last - colorringgggg!

Halfway there. I decided not to re-draw, and just use as is! I have 50 billion thumbnails (well actually about 50 ) that I drew for new pieces, new compositions, new dynamics! :) will be using more for newer stuffs. I just figured my inprogress would be alot more interesting than my sketch book (which has really turned into a "SKETCH" book lately... or more of an idea book at least!).

Morning Kitty

Right as I was leaving for work this morning, I go to grab my bag and see this...! So on the train ride, I decided I NEEDED to draw it! It was so surreal.. like i was looking through the cat... some kind of weird sign maybe? haha...

And above you'll see 3 reasons why I LOVE Prospect Park. I decided to leave out the photo of my bloody knee... (you're welcome! ) I love the bike paths there! Too much fun! ... as well there's also a picture of Taco (dog) and Gyoza (cat) falling asleep during one of their nightly staring contests.... (yes they really do this every night...!)

Laura hearts Prospect Park!

On the train again... but this time with markers!! Oh, how I forgot my love of highlighters, gel pens, and paint markers.... I like how she turned into a sort of "Virgin Mary" figure...

Here's to you Mrs. Robinson

Here's an old old old drawing from one of my old sketchbooks... The stuff I used to draw was so humorous! :( What happened? Life? Haha, maybe I'll get my humor back soon.... :) for now, I'll keep drawing my sexy women...

missing the cold weather...

here's a sketch i did today during lunch... decided i'd color it and see what came about! I'm not so sure about the new piece i started, though... i think maybe the lines are a bit too thick... i'm going to re-draw it... Went to the bookstore today, and saw all the winners for all those magazine contest things (like applied arts, cmyk, ect..) it really... makes me feel down!! :( oh well... at least what i do makes me happy, and i guess thats the only thing that matters!

I think i'm going to start working traditionally again... traditionally huge! I was thinking about some of the artwork I had been doing about 4 years ago... it used to be HUGE! i miss that... so.. my next drawing i think will be a MINIMUM of 4x4 feet... just to get back into the feel of making large art... :)

also! I'm kinda excited about a project i'm doing at work!! I'm helping to illustrate a book that they're publishing... yay! Although it isn't really my style (vectory, realisticy) i guess you can kinda see my taste coming through!! :) updates on it later!

time for a trip to the art store! :)
