So I declared today a mental health day and worked on some personal stuff today.

So we have an art post tonight,


Drew this yesterday on a whim after reading a few too many political newsletters about how contraceptives and abortion with destroy life as we know it.

Me being me vented and translated this into steampunk gynobots.
Sadly this probably won't get finished, I got her innards designed and then realized I couldn't get her face right, or figure out what the mechanic looked like.

and something actually finished and not vaguely political beneath the cut )

Anyways thats all for now, I think I'm going to go to bed now and collapse.

Greetings, life on this end has been rather hilariously hectic.

2012 has pretty much come in to my life with fists swinging.

After the holidays I got a horrible cold that was like the hokey pokey of colds. It'd get in my head and sniffle and then when my head cleared up my lungs got congested and then when I thought I had the lungs handled it went back to my head. I ended sleeping through four or five days pouring hot liquids and decongestant down my throat whenever I was awake enough to hold a mug.

And then some family medical stuff happened that I'm not going to go into, that sort of threw everything else for a loop. It's still not done, its just building right now.

On the plus side my brain is clearing out all the mental cobwebs and cranking out some ideas. True most of those ideas I can't use for conventions or anything but, still this is a lot better than the depressive funk I was in during December. Though now it leaves me very much tired in a "there are not enough hours in the day for all the thinks I have to draw and write" sense. But hey, some of it MIGHT see the light of day.

That being said, have some art I'm working on.


Not sure where this came from or where it's going but its fun to work on between commission stuff. Hopefully I'll figure out a background for this and throw it in the print book at some point.

And CLICK NOW FOR MORE ARTWORK )

Anyways folks thats all I've got for you today.

Greetings folks.

Sorry for the radio silence, I've been rather introverted lately and been working mainly on a commission project. Also I did have some plans in the works for Foolish Mortals 6th birthday but all of them have seemingly fell through. So this means there hasn't been much to post or comment on. The commission work I may show at some point but not anytime in the foreseeable future.

My introversion however has come to something resembling an end. After a very long bout of unemployment I've started a part time job. Considering I think my scanner is on its last legs I am so very very happy to enter the land of somewhat steadier pay.

Not too far into the job so I've just been in basic training though in the end I'm going to be in the framing department. It's retail, nothing amazing but it is at a craft/art supply store so I am not completely out of my element. So far my only major concern has been that somehow I'd do something stupid and awkward and they'd realize they hired a woman a few cats away from Crazy Cat Lady and boot me out the door. So far I've been doing a fair job with my "Responsible Adult" act we shall see how long this lasts.

Anyways on that note, here's some art posting.



Working on this for a new business card design.
Not sure if this is going to be the only card design or if I'll have other designs in the run. You know, for the people or occasions when skeletons are not wanted.
Not that I can think of any situation that isn't improved by a skeleton in a top hat. I've heard they exist though.

Clicky clicky for more images )

Also in other news, The Project is sort of up.
Not very far along and it has no set update schedule at this point but I figured I needed to start releasing pages out into the wilds before I edited them to death.


Anyways that all I have to say right now. I'll probably post more updates as I can around the 21st.

We'll meet again my dear on doomsday
Pigs will be flying through the sky
On the 12th of never
At a quarter past forever
Stricken with the rapture
We'll watch the world's demise

We'll meet again my dear on doomsday
A hint of Armageddon fills the air
Now that Hell has frozen over
And the sun is brewing colder
We'll be drawing closer
Cuz there's no more time to spare

We'll meet again my dear on doomsday
A shower full of frogs and toads
But as bleak as it may be
Apocalyptic revelry
Hand in hand we'll tiptoe
Through the carcasses and bones

The air's too thin to breathe on doomsday
At last we face the reckoning
And blood will fill the sea
Cobwebs will cover you and me
As flames engulf the remnants
Of this grand catastrophe

It's Doomsday
It's Doomsday




I started listening to Jill Tracy recently and blame her entirely for this piece. This is not a finished piece by a long shot but is the mock up to work from when I get around to doing the actual piece.

This gives me a scathingly brilliant idea.

I'm kicking myself for not thinking of this idea myself. Ah well, I might borrow or mess with this concept and see what I can do with it. Later of course, after my papers are done.

Artist unveiled 98 million dollar skull

"It shows we are not going to live for ever. But it also has a feeling of victory over death," Hirst said as the sparkling skull was unveiled to the public for the first time amid tight security at central London's White Cube gallery.

Sorry dude, I'm all into the skeleton and skull symbolism as much as the next person (more so more likely), but what this says to me is BLING BLING.

I pity the poor dude whose skull they used. One day he looks down/up from the Great White/Hot Wherever and discovers his skull belongs on a gangsters chain. Oh well, at least they let him keep his own teeth.

Well the art block seems to be done with. Now I've just got lots of apathy towards my Drawing homework that causes issues. I'm sick of putting together collages and drawing them.

My sort of limbo state of where I'm going to school next fall makes most of my class work feel like I'm just grinding my wheels and doing nothing. So I've been avoiding looking my class work in the eye and been doing work for ME. It feels rather nice to do nuts and draw something cause I felt like it. It also feels good to get back to my convention work, since that is actually working towards a goal.

So this brings me to the main point of my post. The first real art post in a while.

First up - A skeleton cross walk Screenprint for class. I had lots of fun putting the image together, this was the first time I got Illustrator to do something I wanted it to with little hassle. I love the look of the final project and everyone seemed to like it at critque. So this one is a general warm fuzzy puppy sort of thing for me right now.

Second - A rather messy sketch of Kali This needs major cleaning up if I want to do anything serious with it. This is the image in middle of inking, my rough lines are still visible and I had fun drawing it and some of m class mates thought I was warped for this. Good times all around I guess. Should probably go without saying but Kali is NSFW - gore, blood, and blue boobs.
