more faces!

on post-it notes

from the very good photo book, 

in 1858, 

"in a world, 
which is expanding day by day,
literature is no longer enough. 

our busy age
does not always have time to read, 

but it always has time to look"

horse noise

here are some faces!

of people
i found on the internet 

when i do these, 

i typically pull from Sartorialist

i find it difficult to draw people i actually know

because why

i am distracted
by their personalities
and also

the things i love about them

and much practice

haste makes waste

lets just draw things!

to share

what i saw,

walking out of the store, he said 

"i have such beautiful hair! thank you for giving me your beautiful hair!" 

to which she replied, 

"i'll share with you my hair" 

love is so true

even truer still
is baldness 

and then generosity! 

afterward, friendship

so good!

portraits in pink!

a thousand sorries for my lack of blogging, friends 
i'm hanging in there!

school is just so crazy!

since my last post,
my mind has grown so much

i've learned the complexities of hue and saturation

and the philosophical things you can find in color


don't mix ugly colors

balance exciting things with quiet things

life is so full!

i've been doing a lot lately to work with copic markers

trying not to rely so much on photoshop and things

i have small philosophy
that whatever you can achieve in photoshop,
try to also achieve in real life shop

i'm trying! 

i've also decided not to clean up these drawings
 energy, friends!

be well!

the sentimental sailor

what i wore, and wish

hello, friends!

lately, there's been a game

where you choose what you would like to change about yourself


i wonder
if i was three shades darker 


with super long legs

i'd be very tall 

this is what i wish 

so now you! 

What would you change your name to?
Pick THREE things you'd change about your physical appearance 
and ONE thing you'd change about your personality


and go blog about it so we can all laugh
or not

hello, friends!

i've been trying newer things

i've been learning how to control my color values!


it just makes a lot of my drawings
look overly photoshopped

they're not :( 

only scanned and delivered!

very minimalistic

i hope you enjoy! 

here is a vague water color piece
from my recent hike with katelyn gannon!

i don't have a camera at the moment
the details in this drawing are as accurate as my memories of the hike

which are
also very vague 

i only remember
beautiful yellows! and rolling hills

very good 

bear fishin!

here is night time bear! 
he's nocturnal because he watches too much Conan 

i hope all of you are doing well! 

thank you again for all your kind kind emails! 

Thursday, May 5, 2011

so so sorry, friends!

i first want to say thank you
to all of you who email me about things!

it means very much to me that so many of you are reading
and care about when i update! 

hard times come with busy times
so i think for now, all i can ask is a little bit of time to finish up things on my end

so that i can come back and update everyday for you again!

oopsie! : what i wore

today, i learned a valuable lesson
of caution

and respect in an animal 

i see now
that although a dog may not be very bright,

pain is pain, 

and all owies hurt 

i made my very first trip to the veterinarian today!


my dog has many stitches

not so fun, and very very sorry 

p.s. !

i've uploaded my online portfolio!

judy : what you wore today

so now you're 12! 

now that you're 12, 
i see different things about you

i see that now you're touching your hair a lot more

and that all your friends have hand gestures that mean different things

you have opinions now! which is very fun, but mostly confusing 

you're very proud and popular, which is good! 
and also mostly confusing 

happy happy happy birthday
to you, judy!
