Birthday Flowers

21 Jun

I was going to post something that had to due with my never ending cavalcade of life failures. But after I had lunch with a friend I realized it really isn’t so bad. I wouldn’t be who I am without failures, and there was no way I wouldn’t have tried.

It’s just one of those things… that just didn’t work out for Ol’ Laurie Lue

BUT!!!!

Then this morning I heard it was one of my fashion icons/ cosmic twin’s birthday!!!

And I live for Birthday’s…

Especially… Brandon Flowers!!!

Not only is he the lead singer of the “Killers”… but he also has a penchant for the Cure and wearing fashion while carving out some melodies of his own that have a special place in my soul.

Happy Birthday Spaceman

He also reminds me that I really need to get a gold lame leopard print tuxedo… just for funsies.

Happy Wednesday good people of the internet,

Measured in Melody

20 Jun

Yeah… it’s been a long time.

I don’t know if anyone comes on here anymore.

But I still kinda exist in the world. And I’m always making art.

But I’m not always writing stories, which is kind of a bummer… and I’m wickedly out of practice.

For a quick countdown of updates of what’s happened in my life since my last post read below:

  1. I have have several new jobs- one of them is moderately successful freelancer of illustration
  2. I have helped several companies make graphics for marketing purposes
  3. I’m making a book
  4. I have gone from not visiting New York ever to visiting it 2 different season of the last year. I took a train between states in the United States and that was weird.
  5. I have seen seasons… and discovered there aren’t really any in California.
  6. I never grew taller
  7. I made a stunning mermaid Halloween costume
  8.  I learned about premiere league soccer
  9. I have an instagram where sometimes I even show my own face: viciouslysweet08
  10. I’m still obsessed with music and illustrating people who I see every day

just a song away

It’s good to be back,

I’m ready to party

1 Aug

I have had a lot going on recently. I have experience some big losses, but I have to keep on keeping on, as they say.

And this little pinata is really helping improve the mood:

 

And he was inspired by overdosing on Kimmy Schmidt and their party that had a “Mexican candy animal”

This is where my brain is everyone.

Incredibly Loud and very very close

15 Jul

I was commenting at work how everyone is so loud.

And then I got told by my friend, I was also one of the loud people.

At first I felt a little shocked… me loud? And then I realized it’s because everyone in the company comes to visit me at my desk…. like everyone.

People from different floors come to see what I’m up to.

It isn’t too bad, especially if they come to visit me and bring me no additional work… if they have more work, they can find another friend.

I really love sharing happiness with great people. Today is the second anniversary of my friend Emily’s wedding. To celebrate her happy nuptials she asked me to make a doodle of her and her husband.
And it was super fun to do! Congratulations and many happy years to come!

Drawing Challenge Day 24

24 Feb

So today I had the worst deadline… and I have to draw.

I’m was drawing and falling asleep… at my desk, in the elevator, and in my car.

And then I realized I only have one more heinous day of work to go before the project is over.

And I completed with my team 52 reports fulfilling a clients civil engineering dreams.

And isn’t that what its all about???

Anyhoo today’s drawing theme was to draw a character as a creation of Dr. Seuss. I started to draw a cow and then I ended up drawing Morrissey in a struggle about flan

I can’t explain  it any more than that.

And it’s Season’s Birthday, and she’s magical! I need to finish that doodle and put it up here too!
