World's Luckiest B*tch

That's got to be me. I think ... I'm pretty good at "dodging the bullet" ... by accident at least! Detail shot:

I guess i've been listening to a bit too much 90's rock and thinking of how much I miss 1996... Can you tell with the color reference? :)

Lucky B*tch - in progress

Re-writing my artist-statement let me explore alot of issues that have evolved into my work. I'll add a little excerpt of what I've got so far... (if anyone was wondering what is going through my mind when i make these pieces...)

"Strength. Weakness. Steriotype. It was the strong women in my life that always impressed me. They were the ones that I'd always looked up to-- the ones I wanted to become in this male-dominated world. What soon revealed itself to me was the path they had taken to become the strong individuals they are now. It was through these observations, and stories they told me of their lives, that I became obsessed with the role of women in society vs. what women actually wanted ... What seems to be expressed in my artwork seems to be more of the desire to be a strong individual -- a woman's definition of what is 'strong' becomes a man; to exhibit stereotypical men's roles. All while contrasted with the fact that both man and woman can never be an "ideal" emotionally strong person 100% of the time ... The conflict of wanting to be a strong person and not wanting to reveal your human weaknesses. Its these trials in life that remind us that we are human, and that we all make the same mistakes. That even our heros have weaknesses as well. "

Not sure if any of that makes sense. All I know is It's going to be very, very, VERY heavily edited, because my writing skills are very, very, rusty! Also I saw the Goldfrapp / Martha Wainwright performance at Radio City Hall (...thank you for those awesome tickets, Tim!!) ... very inspirational :) ...and I got a neato glowing stick thing!

Looking for all the wrong things, in all the wrong places...

I smell of Tiger Balm, and lots and lots of cold medicine... but during my time being sick (mostly sleeping) I managed to finish up a quick sketch of my new piece... (and then promptly pass out again). Going for the retro 1950's - 60's look and feel with this one. I think I may try to make this without a background this time, for a t-shirt design.
