Well, hey! 
School started. Woohoo. So now ill be busier than ever... and hopefully will have some cool projects to show you guys. So far I like my classes a lot. But I guess we will have to see if that changes over time. 

I finished a commissioned portrait I did for my friend. He wanted me to mimic the same style I did for my self portrait a little bit ago. I liked the way it turned out.

This was a silly little doodle I did of one of my new professors. He was really young, so this doesn't make a whole lot of sense. The whole reasoning behind it is just that there was a skeleton standing next to him and I wanted to draw him as a skeleton. (You know I love Halloween.)

Finally, this was done in my sculpture class. He was just having us try and get the basic shape of a human skull without any details added and this is what I ended up with by the end of the school day. If you know me, then you know that I have never really had any luck with sculpture, but this time around, it was really fun! I can't wait to work on my class project!

Practice with strange lighting

I've got so much to do in so little time! But I am doing a great job of not letting it get the best of me. (yippie) I am moving into my new place this weekend and then starting school the following Monday! I also am in the process of finishing up commissions before the school year starts. 

I was commissioned to make a logo and signature for a coworker at the school newspaper. 
Check it out!
It is a fashion and photography website. She has some pretty cool stuff planned, so I would definitely keep up with it!

This is little practice sketch that I did of my little sister from an old reference photo I took of her. I was listening to "Amie" by Damien Rice. If you haven't heard his music, I highly recommend it.

I don't have internet at my house.. I might die.

Hey I DON'T HAVE INTERNET. Isn't that the lamest thing you have ever heard? 
(Well, technically I do at this precise moment cuz of free coffee shop wifi, but not at my home.)
I am inbetween places and my roommate had to take it for her new house. It's fine. I will get over it. It's only for about a week longer. Anyways, I am surprised that I was able to post on time! Congratulations are in order or whatever. 

I went to visit my friend across state this weekend and it was a blast! We went and visited some ruins, which I included a picture of. Also, Robin Williams died. I am sure most of you are tired of talking about it, but it really bummed me out. I drew a quick little doodle of him to help make me feel better. I hope you all are doing swell, and thanks again for all your support! You guys rock!

Happy Birthday, Mr. President

I found a house! Having a home is a really nice thing is what I realized just barely. (duh)
School is sneaking up on me... I am really excited and nervous. But mostly excited to learn and be forced to draw. Also, OCTOBER IS COMING. That alone is the best news ever. I think I am going to be Velma for Halloween. 

Short post today because I didn't have a ton of time to draw this past week because I was helping my best friend with her wedding. The good news is that everything went according to plan and she is married! Aww. 
This was the main sketch I got to do this week. Marylin Monroe! I am thinking of tweaking a few things and working on a final print for my shop. (It's opening in September now... sorry dudes!)

The best part about this weekend was definitely staying in a cabin in the woods for her bachelorette party. It was gorgeous and we got to star gaze at night. Such a lovely weekend.
