busy busy.


haven't been drawing much lately at all. 
my boyfriend and i are moving to a new apartment downtown and his parents are coming to visit us/help us move. i'm really stoked. they're super nice and our new place is gorgeous. 

i'll get back to quick and dirty drawings next week. 
i'm sure i'll feel extra inspired in our new place and be drawing over time.

quick and dirty 02.


this is alix. 
all i know is that greg posts lots of pictures of her. 
which makes me think they're pretty happy. 
i miss the OE game.

justin.


this painting got ruined by having biocare spilled all over it. awesome. 

justin wears that hat all the time. 
he is the cuddliest of teddy bears. 
but he will rip your face off if you wrong the ones he loves. 
he gives me a lot of good ideas for paintings. 
i'll one up this one...it won't be hard.


quick and dirty 01.



i work with this guy named richard vega who does really beautiful portraits. it's inspiring. it also makes me want to chop off my hands because i suck so bad. i never ever do realism. i'm shooting for a new goal to do a portrait sketch every day. just quick 10 minutes skribbles. just enough to get my brain thinking about them. 

this is katherine. 
sometimes she takes really 'myspace' type angled pictures. 
sometimes she looks like me in her photos. 
she's pretty cool and she likes leftover crack. 

i feel like i'm back in grade 9 sketching really ugly portraits. 
sorry katherine, you're prettier than this. 
i'll get better.
