So it’s come to my attention that I really have a difficult time maintaining any sort of online presence unless I’m on it constantly. Oh well. It’s about time to update this place with some ART! 🙂
On March 8 I got the chance to speak to Sam Coaass, who brought a mini-comic that I got to read called The Coffin.
Sam’s art is really fun. I love the mysterious quality with which she inked this particular comic and her composition looks great. 🙂 You can see this and her other work here The Masked One so go check her out!
Just a turnaround I am working on for class. 🙂
Preliminary designs for the two main characters in “Of Mice and Men.”
Oh man I finally got my business cards in the mail from Moo.com. XD They are way more pink than I realized I made them. Oh well, leave it to the un-girly girl to end up having tons of girly stuff at her comic table. Haha..
In other news, I have been really busy putting together stuff for a new print of the comic (Sans embarrassing typos >_>) and stuff with my knee as well. It just feels like it never quite goes away. I have the next couple pages of ZK drawn out though. New job has been exhausting. It’s just a completely different type of environment than I am used to and it killed me creatively for a bit. I’m slowly getting into the groove though. Just in time for classes!
Lately I’ve been trying to get into things that involve other areas of art. I bought a bunch of scrap booking stuff with the intent of making a fancy book of all the cool times Jae and I have had. It hasn’t really been quick going, but I’ve got a lot of really cool ideas for it! Anyone done that stuff before? It is strangely involved.
We also went to Hangar 1 the other day and learned the art of boozing. That was some pretty damn interesting stuff. Luckily, I don’t think it’s made me any more of a booze snob than I already am (a pretty big one,) but it did give me a lot of ideas for fancy high alcohol drinks! Hangar 1 is this isolated place out in the middle of fuckall nowhere on an abandoned air base. There was some really pretty scenery there and I pity the soul that gets drunk out there because there wasn’t a food joint or public transportation to be had for miles.
I have also been dealing with more crap with my knee. Really, when am I not at this point. The pain just flat out hasn’t gone away. I can’t do normal stuff anymore and I’m really starting to get sick of it. The doc has me on 600mg of ibuprofen 3x a day in the hopes to lower some inflammation but it’s not like I can do that for the rest of my life. Hopefully it will help stave off surgery #3 though.
Finally, Jae and I did a booze and cupcakes night. I had been promising to bring some to work and Jae has wanted to do cupcakes together for a while. For once our roles were switched and he was the one making a mess instead of me. XD Unlike him, though, I wasn’t making fun of him about it (like he would to me) because I am a nice girlfriend. Below is a picture of one of my fancy-ass cupcakes!
