things lost, things gained

So things have been a little crazy lately. Between jobs, lack of time, lack of calling people, relationship issues, finding out that things have changed so drastically in one year, gaining new friendships that have suddenly sprouted strongly, mixing with old friends, realizing how different I used to be, and realizing that I am finally feeling like myself, everything has been chaotic.

I am pleased to say though that my artwork has been exploding. Ideas are coming to mind and the fact that I am so enthused to draw has kept me going. These drawings are a little more literal than usual but to be honest that is just how I have felt lately and to make a metaphor for them was somewhat at a loss this time. Sorry if none of this is making sense. It's 2 in the morning and I had an urge to update and show the world my work. I should really get some sleep...

Seriously though. Give me some comments. I wanna know what people are thinkin. :)

so, i'm proud of myself :)

Aha! I have been busting out drawings like there is no tomorrow! Why? Because I just keep on coming up with visual metaphors and have had way too many conversations with people lately to where they should be document in some form and not forgotten. So there you have it. My next few. I believe that they are numbers 9-13. Wow I'm on fire!!!

looooonnnngggggg weekend....

So this weekend was a little crazy. Fun but crazy. Celebrating my mom's b-day and all in SD, fun stuff I say. Fun stuff. But anywho, I was stupid and didn't scan in any of my Otidian work, but I was looking through my old sketchbooks and I found these sweet drawings I was into but never really finished. I kind of want to paint them but I don't exactly know how to paint so we'll see. Jay says that he'll show me some painting techniques on friday so hopefully these things can get done sooner or later. I might just laser cut them because they look so sweet!!

So this has been one of the craziest 24 hours ever. Besides the fact that I only got 3 hours of sleep last night, this morning I woke up at 6:20, had sean drive me to school (cuz my car is in the shop) at 7:15, went to work at 7:30, then went to my other job at 10, then class at 12:30 to 6:15, then had to go pick up my car, then got home at 7:15 to get ready to drive back to San Diego. Dude. I am wiped out! But anyways....

The drawings!!!! Drew 2 more!!! Way stoked! 7 and 8 are done!!! Woooohoooo!!

Bright and early!

Allo everyone! Well, for it being 9:34 in the morning it is amazing how awake I am, probably because I actually got sleep last night. I had three classes yesterday so by the end of last night, I was dead. Kim and I were supposed to do homework but we were way too tired. It was crazy. But anywho.... the drawings!

Ok. So this is number 5 and 6 of my 70 that I need to get done. I drew another one, but it looks like crap and I don't want to include it so here are the two that I want for my final project. Basically the first one, the one w/ the robot, is an interpretation of an event I had with a translator. Heated argument at 2am in the morning. Fun stuff I say, fun stuff. As for the Giant 8 ball one, that is just how I've been feeling lately. As Kim says "she has a lot of stuff being dropped on her lately" which is true because so much stuff has been going on, I am surprised that I am not pulling my hair out. So yeah, that's basically it. I'm getting really stoked about these drawings because they are some of the best things I've been coming up with lately. The only thing that bugs me is that they take like 2-4 hours to get one done..... arggg....

number 4

So this is the newest drawing to the collection of Quotidian drawings I'm doing for Daniel's class. It was funn, Bob Dob came into class the other day and was checking out our stuff. I was pretty stoked when he said I was prett talented! Woohoo. I sound like a little girl all stoked to see N*SYNC or something, but anywho. Here is the drawing. It is based on an idea me and my friend had and I have to say, the results were pretty tight. :)

WELL. I started on two sketches yesterday that took the majority of my day and I am so stoked about them that I had to post them up. And just for the record, the giraffe one is a little boring but I am trying to think of what to put there, so bear with me. I think I want to include a graphic in most of my illustrations but we will have to see. I also want to incorporate more victorian style backgrounds, but we will have to see for those as well. But here they are!!!! So look at em!!
