SCAD Bees

In 2005 I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design. It’s not something I think about often, but what I learned from art school was priceless. Here’s a watercolor painting of a bee I made while remembering the ol’ alma mater. Go Bees!

This is Halloween

Dr. Sketchy’s Asbury Park hosted a Tim Burton themed event today. The amazing models were Luna Chase, Allison Goldfire, Sammi Macabre Macabe, and Lily Stitches.

Bad Ideas

The opposite of inspiration.

 

Level Up Entertainment

Painted this depiction of Rydia from Final Fantasy IV as a commission. She is highly influenced by Amano’s original character design. Prints are available in my Etsy shop.

Also, prints of many of my gaming themed paintings (including Rydia of Myst) are now available at Level Up Entertainment in the Hamilton Mall.

Secret Daughter of Cthulhu

Below is my hand painted depiction of Cthylla, secret daughter of Cthulhu. She has her daddy’s eyes.

Censorship Ruins Everything

My freedom to express myself is precious. Today, I closed my Etsy shop and stayed off Twitter. I was a proud participant of the blackout to protest SOPA and PIPA. Other participants were Google, Reddit, Etsy, Pinterest, Imgur, WordPress, and Wikipedia. This is a big deal. The Internet is very important to my career. If these bills pass, I will no longer be able to show my work directly to my audience. If you’ve been following my blog for the past few years, you know I feel the Internet is the creative person’s best friend. Please take a moment to sign this petition. If you have a couple minutes, call your Senators. Our freedom of speech is at stake.

Skinny People

I struggle with drawing people who are clinically underweight. It seems no matter who I draw, they end up smaller than in real life. If said person starts small, they end up absurdly tiny. This is something I need to work on. All people are beautiful, and I should be able to portray them accurately.

The Camera Adds Ten Pounds. Watercolor and ink on cotton paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).

Unframed: $225.00

Battle Bot

Nothing to see here, just me and my giant Ham-bot.

When it rains, it pours. Not only do I have two separate gallery openings this Friday night, but today my work was featured in Shop Art Direct and Glamour Shoes. Look at me go!

The Drawing of the Three

On October first, my husband and I threw a huge party celebrating our recent marriage. My sister Maria, my sister Brianna, and I got our hair done together. As the three of us are artists, we each drew a sketch while waiting for our turn in the seat. This is one of the very few blog posts that will include drawings I did not make. I am the oldest of the three. Maria is five years younger than I am. Brianna is ten years younger than Maria.

These drawings are dear to me and are not for sale.

Nothing Serious

Like most creative people, sometimes I struggle with artist’s block. Group assignments are a great way to fight this not so serious ailment. The following works took no longer than forty five minutes to create. They are in response to specific themes assigned daily by Reddit’s Sketch Daily Club.

Painting of my favorite word: Sparrow

Drawing of my favorite villain: Samara

They aren’t masterpieces, just fun little exercises. Sometimes, it’s nice to make art without serious intentions.
