No background yet, but I'll get up the guts to do it sooner or later. Also, this was done on a rather large piece of paper, hence the need to photograph it and not scan it. Colors were better, I swear! Maybe I should just start painting dull colors and hope they'll scan nice. Hmm. I see no flaw in that logic.

Anthdrawlogy is doing Portal this week!
My goodness, people, if you haven't played this game, you must. It's puzzle-y goodness with a really gripping story. I'm no gamer, but I like cake and it definitely promises oodles of that chocolately goodness.

So sometimes I take my notepad to church and sketch during Sunday School. Halfway through my bookish Chihiro here, Preston commandeered the page and drew...well, hopefully you can tell what he added.
When he asked if I liked it, I said, "I'm pretty sure you're going to hell."
Maybe I shouldn't take my notepad to church.

I think one of the great things about having kids is all the chances we get to glean weird, creative ideas from them.
"Mom, you drawing Santa?"
"NO! Draw a mermaid! Mermaid Santa!"
"I will do as you say, tiny warlord."
And for her coloring pleasure (because that's the whole point of having a mom draw stuff):
Check out all the Santas this week over at Anthdrawlogy!
Snow Fight and the Deadly Mom Jeans
(Coming to a Chico's near you!)
Edit 1: Despite the fact the proportions are super weird on this one, I'm keeping it up. I'll fix it all...later.
Edit 2: Or I could just crop it. Fixed!
Edit 3: I feel like I should probably leave my thought process out of these posts.
Edit 4: Mmm. I like potatoes.

Savin was pretty sick today so we watched a lot of TV, specifically her favorite show of the moment. I dare ANYONE to view hours of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and not imagine the main characters as real people. And if you can actually guess the characters, you've also watched too much MLP:FiM for the day. I should go balance this out with some Mindy Project or something.

This is one of eight or so headshot illustrations I've been commissioned to do over the last year. It's been really fun and a bit of a challenge not to let my inner cartoonist take over. Yes! It's true! None of these came out with fairy wings! I'm so dang MATURE, yo.

One of the big projects I've been meaning to do this summer is paint my surfboard. However, I got a little nervous thinking about doing it because it would mean a) being without a board while it dries and b) AH WHAT IF IT SUCKS AHHH. Then I quit crying, put on my big girl boardshorts and just did it. Pretty pleased with the results! I still have a bit to clean up around the edges and my friend Nils is helping me put the shiny, watertight topcoat on later this week. But here it is!
Into watery battle, my steed!
