If Not Now, When?

Can you believe that it is already June, or have you no choice?  It has been a long time, as it always seems to be between posts, and I doubt that anyone but the most serendipitous browser has ever laid eyes on this blog, and has promptly forgotten it now that they have.    

Be that as it may, you should always create, first and foremost, for yourself.  And a blog is certainly a good way to catalogue one's past, and make it part of the collective din of knowledge that is the Internet.  

Sorry, jellybeans and late nights render me poetic.   

Anyway, I have some images for you, more girls that I am developing for a t-shirt commission I have.  More on that later.

A new post for 2008. Hellooo gorgeous.

Hi! When I said I'd be back soon, I didn't mean “soon” in Biblical time. Sorry. 2007 had been a difficult year, and it's completely okay to see it go. Nowadays, I'm putting together a portfolio to use to apply to several art colleges. Of course you'll see it when it is finished.
What I've got here are my (failed?) entries for a contest that the Shojo manga magazine Shojo Beat announced a while back. Shojo Beat created a mascot in a little redhead cutie christened “The Beat Girl”, featured in the pages of various columns. In different issues of the magazine The Beat Girl has been drawn and interpreted by artists like Jen Wang and Vera Brosgol . The contest was to draw your own interpretation of the Beat Girl, and the winning entry would be featured in a future issue of the magazine. Well, I drew several entries. At the time I didn't have the time or money to color them properly. They're not colored properly now, but they're much better. I didn't win, nor expect to, but I had fun. The winner, Jee-Yoon Na has featured her winning entry in here deviantART page here: . She did an excellent job of drawing a cute and fashionable girl, and made good use of Photoshop. Something, alas, I know not how to use at all. Shocking nowadays, isn't it? ;-)

The face is all odd and poorly constructed on “lollipop” girl, but the pose, clothes, and expression was so cute and imp-like, I didn't have the heart to erase her. Maybe I'll redraw her.
In retrospect I find my entries pretty bland, but I didn't want to get too weird.

Anyway, it is truly good to be back. To you poor souls who may have drifted out to Internet sea and found this remote and lonely outpost, WELCOME!! :-)

Survived this time

Hi Folks, I somehow made it to Atlanta with all my limbs. How in sam hell anyone survives while driving on Atlanta highways is beyond me. So...I'm here, and I'll be here for 3 months. You'll see me again at Christmas. That doesn't mean a whole lot online except for the fact that now, I don't have access to a scanner at the moment. I took pictures of the trip--and man, was it boring!!! Should have rode the rails instead. Running from the police and meeting all kinds of hobos and vagabonds would have at least given me a store of more interesting memories. You'll see the piccies as soon as I can get them off the cameras. I mean, I *still* run from the police, but with none of the urgency you have while hopping onto a freight car.

Sorry about the lack of content, but I am in a quandry. Just how much information do I reveal about myself and those around me while online? So much as happened, but ha! I shall never tell you.

I'm going through a drawing program to get better at drawing. in 3 months I will be much better. In the meantime--I told you you'd have to suffer through a bunch of ill-concieved nonsense. Here's some more drawings I did a long time ago of rooms in a spooky house. It getting near Halloween and all, I thought it might be appropriate; not just because of the theme, but because of the utterly ameturish execution.

Who Dis Heah? Who Dat Deauh?

Hi Folks, I'm gonna be out of town in the ATL for 3 mo. or so, but unlike those negligent bastards who completely er...neglect their viewing public, I'm gonna take you with me. The entire road trip will be documented with pictures, and you will take a small peek into the world that is slowly killing me. At the end of 3 mo. I shall be wiser, understanding all the mysteries of CRUNK.

Sundae Evening chat

C'mon, people, I know you're out there, I can hear you breathing!! It's Monday nite over here in Dairyland, and the Labor Day weekend is over. Time to clear out the mothballs on your long underwear with the convenient flap in the back. Time to dig in and build up that extra layer of fat for the winter. What? You already have one? You're halfway there!

One project

Had this story in my head for a while. The opening scene takes place in depression-era new Orleans at a jazz funeral. The entire procession are characters in the story. Maybe one day I'll read it to ya.

Girls, girls, girls

Drew these yesterday, not a whole lot but its' a start. Cute girls are popular, I hear.

"Promises, promises", you may say, but there really will be artwork on this site. Let me introduce myself. This is me, getting my rice harvest on. I've always had this idea to become an artist. The world "artist" is thrown around much too liberally. Is a person with a little talent automatically an artist? Nah, I don't think so. Perhaps someday I will be, at very least, a good draftswoman. But until then, dear reader, you may suffer through a lot of poorly concieved nonsense. I apologise.

Top 5 songs I want played at my funeral:

1.) Another One Bites the Dust--Queen

2.) Whip It--Devo

3.) Brick House--The Commodores

4.) Let It Whip--Dazz Band

And the number 5 song... Superfreak, by Rick James haha!
