Before and after


I gave one of my old paintings a make-over last night while watching WKRP in Cincinati (Turkey's Away). I think it shows the kind of progress I've made artistically when you compare the two.

TAGGED


The rules:* Mention the rules on your blog.* Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself.* Tag six others* Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they are tagged.
Quirky yet boring eh?

1. I listen to copious amounts of NPR.
2. I read Wikipedia for fun
3. I have a boomerang shaped birthmark on my right leg
4. I've never left the country
5. I have a palmaris longus muscle.
How do you like them apples?
Now, to tag.....

Riding on the Metro


She reminds me of the Berlin song The Metro from back in the 80s. I should have given her an empty glass.
So, did I achieve the rain on window effect that I was going for? Or does it look like a melting city?

The Internal Circus



I present to you The Internal Circus. I'm starting a series about the imaginary hoops through which we think we need to jump on a daily basis.

The concept is that we oppress ourselves with all the pointless crap that we think we need.

Pendants a-plenty



My first...well, second really, batch of scrabble tile pendants. Like mini works of art hanging from your neck.

yay. I love them but they are kind of like my babies to begin with so I'm kind of biased like that. You know how I do.

Can you guess what I'm working on? hmmmm.
That's right, Empty Envelope, it's scrabble tile pendants. Although that taj mahal thing is tempting...hmmm.

Reinette


Variations on a theme...as always. after I did Antionette, I wanted to push the concept a little further so I created Reinette. Bigger hair, more ornate and my lovely white eye patch. I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

Do I Need an Agent?


So, if a gal wanted to get into the illustration market, should that gal get an agent? How does that work? Anyone have an agent? Has anyone done any commercial illustration?

oh, hai, David Cook....what are you doing here? being awesome? I thought as much.
