So yeah! I died off in early 2015 in my second round of 365. But I'm trying to get back on the horse! Here's a few recent Anthdrawlogy posts to PROVE that I know what markers, pencils and scanners look like. Pixar and tattoos were our themes...not pixar tattoos, I'm sure that a whole 'nother bag of worms.
Bag of worms, I say!

I once read Walt Disney claimed that his favorite scene of animation was Cinderella's transformation from rags to ball gown. When I told Preston that, he said, "What do you think he'd say if he saw something like Treasure Planet nowadays?" I replied that he'd probably say, "Raaagh, braaaaaaaains!" because he's been dead for quite some time.

Some days are just packed with silliness and all you can manage is a very oddly proportioned lion. I feel like it's a mutated Berenstain Bear gone wrong. Oh well...fun brush pen ahoy!

When I was a kid, I remember hearing my sister do a monologue about Tinkerbell and how if you said you don't believe in fairies, she'd die...but if you clapped your hands, she'd come back to life. In this particular monologue, apparently the audience didn't clap hard enough and she died. For good.
Oh wow, I found it! I misremembered a few things but still...pretty sad.

Vacation is over! Let's get back to this silly thing, right? So I've never really tried oil pastels, but they were a Christmas gift; might as well! It's messy.
Here's to 2015: trying new things and stretching this 365 days of drawing out for at least another 600 more days!

All. Day. DOLLS. More Harry Potters! More Nativities! I'm EXHAUSTED. I think I broke my record of number of dolls painted in one day. Can't wait to be done with commissions and move onto painting these sexy kokeshi beasts:

The last episode of The Legend of Korra airs tonight! It's a show my daughter and I have watched a LOT over the last few years so it's sad to see it come to an end. Goodbye amazing show! Goodbye fun strong female protagonists! Goodbye that strange urge to learn karate once a week!

She started off as Galadriel then I forgot the elven ears and the hair turned blue, so...
Funny story about blue hair! The first art student I tutored was 10 years old. I was showing her a few of my sketches and she asked, "Why does everyone have blue hair?" And I said, "Well, I think brown hair is pretty boring. I mean, you see it around every day. It's fun to see something different, right?" And she flipped through the gobs of blue haired people in my sketchbook and replied, "Well, if everyone you draw has it, it's not that different, is it?"
Well said, overly-perceptive-for-her-age 10-year-old. Well said.
