Wow, sorry for completely forgetting about this blog!  I'm still not even sure if anyone has seen my blog yet, but hopefully at least one person has . . .
So my computer's X-mas present to me was to up and die, which was a wonderful surprise.  But thankfully the people at the Mac store fixed it SUPER quick, they were amazing.  So now that it's all fixed HOPEFULLY I can remember to post on here!

I've been working on some illustrations for a child's book and designing tattoos - So props to me for actually doing something artistic during my break.  As a friend of mine said, "My breaks usually consist of different versions of sitting on my ass."  Which is so true, but at least I'm sitting on my ass and drawing, woot woot!

Here's a tattoo design I did for a friend of mine.  The color is dulled but the tattoo turned out great!  I've designed around 10 tattoos so far, maybe one day I'll muster up enough courage to actually learn how to tattoo . . . but until they invent an instant tattoo eraser I'm going to stay far away from that idea

Since my winter break is in full swing I've been neglecting my paints . . . as usual.  But lately I've been getting the itch to randomly paint something.

For the past 6 months I've been slightly obsessed with turquoise.  Especially if its more on the green side.  For some reason I gravitate toward anything this color and it just puts me in this euphoric state.  Probably has something to do with this color reminding me of tropical get-aways and the fact that it has been ridiculously cold here lately.  I have a few ideas of some abstract pieces using galkyd that would finally let me use this color.  Now I just have to get around to actually starting it . . . lets be honest, that might take awhile . . .

This semester I've been trying different techniques of painting portraits and I started doing some in watercolor, with ink and acrylic.  And for some reason every face I paint has it's eyes closed . . . maybe its a sign I need to get more sleep -_-

That's all I have at the moment, I'm going to try to post more tomorrow . . . so we'll see!
