Happy [insert holiday here] !!!

Hello! Happy Holidays! Merry New Year! Happy Christmas... and whatever!

It's been a bit since I update my blog :) Besides the normal hustle and bustle of the holiday season/end of finals, I had to have a small procedure done on my weird toe. Although it set me back a wee bit, I am doing well and ready for the new school semester to start! As some of you know, I work in a pottery shop. So, I wanted to take a second and show you the Christmas presents I've been so preoccupied with!

 This is an elephant-shaped piggy bank for my little sister. I realized that I never really give her any of my artwork, so I wanted to make something special for her :) It's a dream bank I covered with a bunch of stuff she likes. Hopefully, she will use it to save money for her dreams... whatever those may be!

A silly little mug I made for my friend. It's that dinosaur/godzilla thing I drew for an Inktober entry, but instead of eating ramen noodles, this one is just saying "hi." How friendly of him.

I made a platter for my father as a Christmas present.. He has a platter just like it that has been in the family for a while. But recently, it broke :( So I decided to make a new, more durable version for him! It was interesting trying to copy such a unique style.

This is one of the smaller pumpkins I painted for Halloween.. it was still hanging on after 2 months. His face looks cooler now that he is all lumpy and rotten.

Hope that you all have a Happy New Year and that life gives you the best things!

  1. Great stuff, sugar.

  2. That pumpkin is rad, gets better with age. So glad we have a class together!
