I can't stop listening to Elton John

Hey guys!
Do you even understand how much I've been listening to Elton John this past week? It's out of control. 
Anyways, I have to find a new place to live (again) ... I really hate moving. It is the worst and top most stressful thing to me. But it's okay because it will be over sooner than I think. I just got to find a place first. (tee hee?)

This is an hour speed painting I did for one of my followers on Instagram. She won the giveaway I did a while ago and the print got lost in the mail! So when I resent the mail, I decided to include a little gift! Isn't she the cutest?

Here is the pottery as promised! This was a father's day present for my dad. He loves the Green Bay Packers, specifically Vince Lombardi. Turned out better than I thought it would... it was my first time painting a portrait on a cup! Sheesh.

These are some "His" and "Her" mugs I made for my friends that just got married. I painted them in her wedding colors and even painted her flower on the bottom. 

Thank you all for your love and support! It keeps me plugging along!

A Quick Post

Hey guys! I am not dead. This blog is still a thing. I have just had a TON going on the last couple weeks, and this week I work 9-5 every day. I am not used to this much work. 

Anyways, I just wanted to show you guys a painting I finished a few weeks ago as a present for my uncle. It's done with oil on masonite board. Also, I promise to have a better post next week. (psst... it's going to be a pottery post!)

Man! I still have vacation brain... all mushy and filled with sea water. It's taken about a week, but I think I may be finally back in the groove of things.

Excited to be working out my Etsy shop this month! I am still planning on having it open in August. I also will be opening a Society 6 store, which I will tell you guys about in more detail on a later date.

Update about Comic Con: I will NOT be purchasing a booth this year. I decided that I am going to buy a ticket to this upcoming September SLC Comic Con and scope out the area and get a better idea of how people set up their booths. That way, when Comic Con comes around next year, I will feel better prepared! 

I drew quite a bit over vacation, in the airport, etc... and I just wanted to share some of these doodles from my sketchbook with you guys! 

"Es-cargot" shorts... get it?

My sister and her new red hair..

I drew mostly profile views of people the past couple weeks... and they all look like the same human.

She wouldn't stop wiggling on the plane... so she gave me no choice but to draw an unflattering picture of her.
