Everybody wants a rock to wind a piece of string around May. 28th, 2006 @ 04:49 pm
My poor laptop has been DEAD AS A DEAD THING lo these many weeks. Alas, alack. Apparently I need a new hard drive, wtf.

But! I have hijacked the family computer to update my leagues of adoring fans on the minutiae of my daily life. Such as: I have made Art! (When was the last time I posted art? Dude, ages ago.) And it's real media too, and in color. Will wonders never cease.


I <3 My Prismacolors.Collapse )

Also, for those who have been wondering, it looks like I won't be going back to camp this summer. :( I sent in my application and didn't hear back so I sent Laura an e-mail and still haven't heard back, so the ball is most thoroughly in her court and she can contact me or not as she sees fit. I want the job, but I won't beg for it. Definitely got hired two days before the campers showed up.

On a happier note, there will be far too much CSI in my very near future (like, tomorrow at 1:00 PM) and I should definitely stock up on the Jones Soda.

I made this messenger bag ages ago, like last August, but since I have a digital camera that I didn't have then (albeit a marginally crappy one) I'm going to show it off RIGHT NOW.

Whee denim!Collapse )

All right, I'm through showing off.

Two hours of sleep is not worth it, but I'll take it anyway. Jan. 25th, 2006 @ 04:44 am
Drawing realistic people has always been difficult for me. Drawing realistic, recognizable people - that's a bitch and a half. They always turn out wonky. But, in the grand ol' tradition of doing something you're bad at until you're not bad at it anymore, I scrounged up some photos for reference and drew a few portraits of characters from CSI. Apparently I have a crush on that show. I watch the episodes, I read the fanfiction, I trawl the forums, and now I'm attempting fanart.

But in my defense, you have to admit that the cast is full of beautiful people whose portraits are just begging to be sketched. William Petersen is sex on legs. Gary Dourdan is too hot for television. George Eads needs a permit for that smile. Jorja Fox is so pretty it hurts. I just wish I had the talent to capture them in a big pit, or maybe a net that falls from the sky ...on paper.

Some people call it 'avoiding homework.' I call it...well, I call it 'avoiding homework' too, no sense lying to yourself.Collapse )

In other news, I have a DeviantArt account. Nothing new there, really, just another place to display my artsy creations.

Fun fact: juggling on the way to class gives you instant popularity.

Also, this icon cracks me up. Dec. 29th, 2005 @ 11:59 pm
The Twenty-Four Hours of Art was a resounding success, I took a six-hour nap in the middle of it and still finished with an hour and a half to spare. And now I have twenty-four shiny new drawings, although their realtive shinyness is debatable. Remember that bit about "they will not be twenty-four masterpieces"? Yeah, that came true. Although I am quite proud of some of them, the funky snake especially. He gets to be displayed here, while the rest of 'em are all lumped into the ugly picture-storage page if you want to have a look.

But I like the snake.Collapse )

hahaha, I love this icon Dec. 29th, 2005 @ 01:54 am
I decided I haven't been drawing enough lately, so in the spirit of the twenty-four hour comic, I am spending an entire day doing just that. Not a comic though, I'm crap at things like plot and conflict, and I couldn't draw the same character twice to save my life. Instead I am doing Twenty-Four Hours of Art with the (hopeful) result being twenty-four separate drawings. Mind you, they will not be twenty-four masterpieces. Nor will they be twenty-four full-color, true-to-life illustrations. My goal here is twenty-four sheets of printer paper with pictures on. Design, composition, and realism can bugger off and die.

So far, things are going smashingly. I'm only ten hours in (I was dumb and started in the middle of the day) and I've already knocked out fourteen pictures, which, I hope I don't have to point out, is more than half. I've also knocked out a bottle of Jones cream soda and half a bag of chocolate chips. CAFFEINE IS MY FRIEND.

When I was in fourth grade, I dropped karate because some kid half my size made me cry. Dec. 7th, 2005 @ 02:27 am
I am well pleased with what I accomplished today. I earned five points extra credit on my comp sci exam (bringing it up to a 99, woo-hoo!) by sitting in the lecture hall until the prof. came in and said that there would not, in fact, be a movie to watch, but we could all have the points anyway. Also, I repaired all the ripped seams in the denim jacket that I love so very very much (while watching TV, I'm so talented) and made five CSI wallpapers.Collapse )

I also made a Harry Potter wallpaper, but it isn't nearly as exciting because it's just the logo. But it has funnier quotes.

And...here it is.Collapse )

So anyway, yes, productive day, and no class tomorrow (hurrah!) so I get to sleep in, which I think I'll get started on right now.

Woo, finally have access to a decent scanner. I drew some of these ages ago, but only just now uploaded them. If the image is scaled down, click on it to see a full-size version.

I have thumbnails, too! Spiffing!

Hey, ho, to the bottle I go...Collapse )

There's more, but I didn't feel like putting everything up when it's all already on my website.

Come join me, and flip out, and you'll be a ninja too! Aug. 17th, 2005 @ 01:51 pm
I'm gonna flip out like a ninja, 'cause that's what ninjas do.
I'm gonna flip out like a ninja, and you should flip out too.

Let's flip out together and be ninjas foreverCollapse )

Because this song makes me happy.

So it turns out I AM capable of doing a halfway-decent coloring job. W00t.
