Somebody's Watchin' You



"I'll tell you something
I am a wolf but
I like to wear sheep's clothing
I am a bonfire
I am a vampire
I'm waiting for my moment"

- Garbage, "Temptation Waits"

or... actually i cant think of any other song lyrics that really go with this... but it kinda fits?...hmm

A visit to Dr. Sketchy's


So I finally got a chance to trek out to Dr. Sketchy's (in crazy, cold, snowy weather!) to experience burlesque drawing at its best! Here are some bad iphone photos of some of the stuff that resulted:

Oh Me Oh My!

...There's a fly in my eye! (I think that's how it goes?... or maybe it's something more along the lines of 'pie'?)

I've been drawing a million thumbnails for the past two months, but one finally made it to a finished piece. This one's 100% paint/ink with no digital ... I know I said I'd lay off the pretty ladies, but once again, I could not resist! After getting a mani-pedi for the first time (heh, I'm very un-lady-like, I KNOW...) I was inspired by all the pink furniture, wallpaper, and uniforms... I had to create a *really* girlie piece... ! And so, *drum rolls* .... here it is!

17" x 14" Acrylic + Ink.

Save Yourself -The end



Here's the newest piece that I've declared to be the last of the 'Distressed' series, but also the beginning of a new technique process! :) I've been focusing on a relationship themed work based on stories that I've heard from different women in my life, and I think it's about time to change the subject matter a bit! (Finally!) Detail shots below. For my next few pieces I want to focus more on everyday life scenes, and try to leave out the people a little bit ... we'll see how that goes at least (I have such an addiction for drawing those ladies!)
