and then it became an obsession...

for some reason i've been drawing, painting, making things about a parent bird and their kids.
here's some more...


this is STILL IN PROCESS..it needs lots of work but i'm already getting bored of it. oh boy.



i wanted to make a 3d version of the bird i painted awhile ago...here's the head.




next is the body with feathers!


me being a novice seamstress is an understatement. i suck at sewing but i keep wanted to alter all these clothes i have in my closet. so i decided to draw out how i want my clothes to be altered, show it to my uncle and let him work his magic on my clothes. i thought showing the before and after might be fun. here's the first drawing. wish him luck!

ok.

i'm finally putting stuff up. more will come.
i'm going to post at least once a week so check it out.


i've been doing more collage and mixed media stuff
like the two below.




i wanted to see it without the background.



i did another mama bird with her chick but this one's done digitally.
actually, i just made it a papa bird.




i did this one to cheer up a friend!
i'm not that good painting digitally so i thought i'd practice more.
hope you enjoy!
guess who? a hug for anyone who guesses right.



before and after. i like the after.



something i'm hoping to get paid for. did this in photoshop

i was pretending to be an aspiring fashion designer by drawing what my elementary school crush wore that day.

still life, pencil

i really wished i had a straw like this....so i drew it to life

i remember drawing this at the park on rives street

whoa crazy line work

i was organizing/cleaning out my hard drive and found this!
about a year ago i repackaged a tea canister for JT Steiny....
JT's face ended up being the face of the newly packaged tea.

happy new year!

wow...it's been almost two months since my last post. well, this is some of the stuff that i did during the time. hopefully i'll post new things sooner.

this is "mercury" the modern reincarnate woman version of hermes. you can make her move! it's an interactive piece.


this is kat. it's the first page to a very short story about a girl and her cat that dies and comes back to life 9 times.






sketches




i actually did this some time last year. thought i'd just put it up cuz i made it the same way as the mercury piece. (paper and board cut outs with acrylic and watercolors and inks)
