Psst, me thinks it looks nicer if you click on it.

Cut and Paste LA competition

And the winner is, Janée Meadows!

I think she's gonna kick butt in New York!
Honestly, out of the top renown designers of the world
Janée is one of the best.
I would say this even if she wasn't my sister.
She doesn't promote herself so nobody knows about her,
but she is a genius when it comes to graphic design and illustration.
In other words, I have yet to see another designer better then her.

This is one of my recent faves

Oh the splendor of life

For the magazine Fray
I have no clue if they're going to use it or not, we'll see.
Not because it's not good, more because of timing.

I think it's a good reminder that we're all winners in life,
unless your life is hell on earth.

I had two topics to chose from (sex or death) I chose sex.

Bird Brain

I need to figure out something for these types of birds...
A detailed illustrated scene, or maybe make them into plushes.

Website Header

This is to go up in the upper-left corner of my website.
I just wanted something simplistic and playful.

i'll probably change it later on, but I want my site up asap.

My Travels home... in a short video

Updated!! With audio & a few seconds of extra footage!

Few things...
• When we were walking silly around Chi-Town people were pointing and laughing...
We did it anyway so the video would be more entertaining, that's dedication!
• Tis true, I like to sleep in the back of the car with things covering my head.
• Finally saw that blasted meteor (pun intended)
• High heel boots hurt, but they look so good.

:( I miss California
Life is no picnic right now.
I'm praying that I'll have the wisdom to promote myself well.

Piggy Bank

I think it's a good start, I'm trying to figure out what else I could add to it.
Don't say a mouth, because I've tried... it looks funky because of the way the snout is situated.

I'm starting to get the hang of it!
I want some real painted artwork for my Etsy shop.
Although I will be printing some digital pieces as well.
I want to make sure they get printed out correctly, so I'm learning about papers and printing... Its been like 8 years since I learned about printing.
I forget things.

Anyway I digress, but here's my first mini painting for etsy.
It's a lot like the octopus hoodie.

Loving Flickr

I started posting up random photos, and then remembered that I originally got an account long ago to post up my artwork...
So I did, and I found out that it's a great way to connect with other illustrators and promote ones self.

It's wonderful, don't know why it took me so long.
Here's a link to my illustration set, hurray!
(you'll have to copy and paste, I can't post links for some odd reason)

and I never did post up this Donnas fake cake my sister
and I made for a Donnas concert poster...
then set it on fire in the apartment and took pictures
(it looked cooler set on fire).

I actually like setting things on fire.
If I were a felon, I'd totally be an arson.

Thank God Football Season is OVER

I didn't watch the super bowl or go to any party.
I just went thrift shopping and bought some sculpey.
I'm trying to figure out ways to make stuff for an online art store.

This was my test run, so he's really not that great.
I mean he drinks a lot and swears all the time so... what can you do?

Oh, and check it out...
I've been finding Gwen Frostic prints at resale shops around town.
This one was signed, sweet!

Oh, aaaannnddd!
Which is better? Texture or no texture?
