I wanted to say thanks for all the years of this blog and working on my skills as an illustrator. I have had a very strange month, it was sad at some parts, exciting at others. And all together memorable for my next goals in life.
I got a job, actually illustrating. And it was really thrilling, so it’s Freelance but, it’s amazing!
And it made me feel really great.
I am trying to be more conscious about posting more… even though I’m super busy. But I had to share that every day I’m getting closer to doing more things that make me happy. I hope this November finds you well!
And enjoy technicolor giraffe until we meet again
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:
- I have have several new jobs- one of them is moderately successful freelancer of illustration
- I have helped several companies make graphics for marketing purposes
- I’m making a book
- 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.
- I have seen seasons… and discovered there aren’t really any in California.
- I never grew taller
- I made a stunning mermaid Halloween costume
- I learned about premiere league soccer
- I have an instagram where sometimes I even show my own face: viciouslysweet08
- I’m still obsessed with music and illustrating people who I see every day
It’s good to be back,
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!
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!
I’ve been having some rough days and I really just realized I haven’t even made any of these posts even though I’m drawing them!
Today is a day I chose. Draw and American Idol!
And not in a Ryan Seacrest way!
So I drew one of my favorite ladies…. who is so American and is everything America is about!
She is a self made celebrity and is so talented and warm and lovely. Also she has the best… wigs in the entire world!
Draw a new superhero!
I for some reason couldn’t get this one together…
so here is my super chicken:
And his power is to be yummy!
Today’s drawing challenge is to draw the most current cool guy, Chris Pratt!
Although he’s like so cool and tames dinosaurs and saves galaxies. I still like whe he was simple and adorable Andy from “Parks and Recreation”
This is a part of Andy Dwyer’s confessions. One included he didn’t know who Al Gore is… and this point he’s afraid to ask.
And that really makes him one if my favorite TV characters ever.
Draw a fear. I have many… and stay sharp by not sharing most of them.
I will admit here that animatronic dinosaurs scare me… bet since they dont roam the wuld yonder i think i will be fine.
And that if I saw a small idol on the ground during a vacation i wouldn’t pick it up because I saw what happened to Greg when he was surfing. And I will not be taken like that evil island trinket! I will become the next big Kahuna.
Although today is the day of love…
Our drawing challenge has nothing to with Valentines.
Today we are supposed to draw a cartoon from our childhood.
My favorite was Rocko’s Modern life
It was odd, avante garde, and had a soundtrack from the B-52s- who I can describe in another post had a great influence of my aesthetic.
So it was about this little Wallaby who was learning how hard it was to be an adult. Which is an odd concept for a kids cartoon. But I really loved it, and it showed me a lot of my future was going to be hanging with weird and delightful friends, and not being as rich as the monopoly man.
Too poor to buy groceries.
Too tired of dumb bosses.
Too tongue tied around the person you have a crushy crush on?
Rocko lived it.
Thanks Rocko! You really got me through the real struggles. Just nervously laugh and carry on!
