2013, so far, has definitely been a year of progress for me. I could go into depth about what inspired me to whip my ass into shape this past January, but for now, I want to make this post about hair. Hair and a bit of self-confidence. Read More
Well Stoops [another name for my friends], it’s been a year! We’ve been doing ridiculous, crazy, fun, adventurey & un-adventurey things together for a while and it keeps on getting better. Thanks guys for being my SF family!
Since I’m working for a startup that helps Moms find childcare, it only makes sense that I am indeed, drawing more children. It’s fun to think of the crazy imaginative things kids would do, or wish they could do. But. I still love drawing weirdly shaped, somewhat sexy women. haha. Anyway, I’m posting this early so that you can prep for Easter cheer with this little scene. She’s chasing that rabbit and she nearly has him! Forget the candy! If you snatch the source, you’ll have all the malted milk balls you could want. And jelly beans, ew. Hate those.
Last weekend we brunched it up at Park Chow at 9th and Irving in the Inner Sunset. Usually there are a lot of people milling around the sidewalk waiting for a table in the diner-esque restaurant so we called ahead for 1pm. I was really surprised they let us do that, brunch spots usually NEVER take reservations, but kudos to Park Chow for being considerate of customers’ time! Anyways, our adventure began when we got off the N train, walked past some tempting Girl Scout Cookies, and found ourselves milling around in some shade. Of course we were hungry and of course we still had to wait. I am still wondering why the heck SF doesn’t have good restaurants that you can just walk into. Wouldn’t that just be swell, to get up on the weekend and head to brunch without the dread of waiting with about 20 other people just to sit down?
Happy Valentine’s Day! If you live in an enchanted forest, watch out for this little girl delivering Valentine’s on her half-grown deer, her steed of frolicky speed. So, yes, I did yet another v-day illustration, but this time it was for work! Thank you momtrusted.com for being an awesome company. To everyone else, if you have a kid, check out our site, if not, then eat cake.
Happy Early Valentine’s Day!! Forget cupid, wouldn’t you rather let “Miss Be Mine” do your soul-mate seeking? She’s pretty badass and knows how to handle her quiver of love dosed arrows. Anyway, this really has been my first creative drawing in quite a while. It was a fast one, but I’m still pretty happy with how she turned out. Is it possible to make a business out of drawing pretty girls? I wish there was, but alas, I’ll keep pushing pixels until that time comes. I was going to make a desktop background out of this, if you’re interested in that, just leave a comment with your desktop dimensions and I’ll throw some downloads up.
I try to not eat dessert, but inevitably I end up eating dessert. sigh. May I reference the name of my blog here? I have an affair with butter & buttery things. I just can’t seem to keep butter out of my life (despite how healthy I try to be!).
It is almost Valentine’s Day at least, and this cupcake was the cutest, sweetest little early gift to myself. Dear Amanda, I love you, enjoy some butter & sugar. With love, from yourself.
This is my parent’s doggie Kirby. I miss him. He’s in Ohio. He also looks like an ewok. See for yourself.
Sadly Kirby has been a bit sick lately (he’s only about 7 years old). Nasty ____s and he’s been getting really skinny and having episodes of paralysis!! I really hope he’s okay. I love him!! And my parents would be heartbroken…he’s the only child left in the nest! haha. Keep him in your prayers, the lil underbite pup. (Took these during Christmas break)
I want to dance next weekend. Too lazy to color this. End note.
