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,

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.

Drawing Challenge day 23

23 Feb

What inspires you? So many things actually, but today… 1980s movies.

The music, the costumes, the Molly Ringwald. It’s pretty much what every day with me is about.

I was so happy to draw this pretty in pink inspired doodle!

Drawing Challenge day #8

8 Feb

Today’s drawing challenge was to draw an unsual outfit you’d like to wear for everyday occasions.

I would be so honest to say that I love like 1980s/70s glam that I would love to be dressed like in glitter costumes all day… even if I was in the office.

And since I work in such a corporate environment… I think people would be very surprised.

Drawing Challenge day #5

5 Feb

Today’s drawing challenge was one of my own choices. I’ve always wanted to be a constellation. So, that’s what today’s drawing challenge is
Your canvas is the sky and just all the possibilities are just how you arrange them. It would be so delightful to see the galaxy from a different perspective.

Happy weekend,
Lauren

Ziggy Played Guitar

11 Jan

I heard the news today, oh boy…

At 6 am my sister told me that one of my all time favorite people who have ever made a melody on this planet passed away.

My reaction was, as always is in this situation… “no.”

It was just his birthday.

He just released an album on Friday.

“No.”

But then I checked my phone and had like 6 different people telling that it was true… that David Bowie was gone.

Now, like many people I never met him in person. But I feel like I knew him on a different plane. He was such an inspiration to art (not just my own), to color, to vibrations. He was really something else. And I’m so glad the world got to experience the reaches of his imagination down to his last day.

Thanks David Bowie for all the magic, and all the inspiration,

Lauren

The New Fashion

6 Jan

I feel like since I have been working in retail design that now I have an official opinion about fashion.

And because I saw seasons of fashion just thrown into a junky room full of screens for like 9 hours a day for like… every weekday I can say things with an authority or something.

  1. I will never wear a see through skirt to work. I am not Bridget Jones. And I do not work with Hugh Grant. See through skirts = creepy notes on linkedin… from guys who don’t look like Hugh Grant… or Colin Firth for that matter.

  2. And I don’t want to wear overalls. I get really bad flashbacks of all the clothes on “Full House” that DJ Tanner used to wear because I can’t chance my loose drapey overalls falling off showing that I own an embarrassing amount of polka dot underpants:

  3. I don’t want to look like I mugged Indiana Jones on my way to spend a night out on the town
  4. And I definitely don’t want to look like a snake:

Because then Indiana Jones will never ask me out to the Spring Fling Dance.

 

Happy 2016,

Lauren
