Oh. My. God.

Excitement, and also, sososo much work.  It is perfect for me to do, many little pictures that cater to my a.d.d.  I never get bored.  Fun times.  Pg 1 was the hardest, I redid it (see above).  The rest were easier.  I hope you like them as much as I do.  Hint from the upcoming plot: (there's a robot.)

E. Umbrella

HAVE YOU VISITED my other brand spankin' new blog?  If not, go before I cry (the link is to the's called obscurity).  So, yes I have alot of projects.  It is the only thing that keeps me from going insane.  Having said that, the one that has become most impertinent for me to work on is my comic. is Ella Umbrella.  She goes on adventures.  I am planning to do the first couple of pages for my portfolio, and then the rest later.  This story has been in my head forever. (hurray!) It is in my blood to do comics.  I know this.

Don't Mess With the Best

It's that time again!  So, while I am working on my nasty character portfolio (literally, the characters are nasty, full of no goodness) I decided to take a break and go back to doing something enjoyable.  Not that yucky characters aren't fun, they are just INCREDIBLY tedious.  I was thinking of how many flippin' styles I have, and have fully decided I am exactly half good, half evil.  This just happens to be the non-evil blog.   I am putting up another blog to display said nastiness.  You can decide which one jives with you.  It's official that I cannot make a decision in the matter.  Anyway, enjoy the self portrait of when I'm 80 below.  Also marks the style the recipe book shall be in.  

Sweet dreams.

Band Posters....again

I am not ashamed. 
Of Montreal - No Elephants Allowed

Robot Ate Me - No Fun Tour (this is totally my fav.  You all know
my strange love of robots.  If you don't, you will. Oh yes, you will.)

Beulah - When Your Heartstrings Break  (An experiment.  I noticed
that I always use some sort of character so I tried something new. Don't F.)

So there.  More band posters.  I can't help it, they are fun.  More will be done, too.  Just you wait.

Oldies But Goodies (cue 70's sexy music....NOW)

I did these earlier.  I am posting them because I am Oh-so-busy on my super sweet folio, plus I feel like it.  BUILDING IT OF WOOD and things!  WOOD!  Recycled wood, no less. Be impressed.  Or at least fain excitement.
The Life + Death of a Bird - Adobe Achievement Awards Finalist Piece (word.)
The Sea is my Home
Deux Morts Tres Petites (Two Tiny Deaths)

They are a set.  With different meanings.  Was working more with the design this time.  I can't decide if I love doing that better, or doing character design.  Now if I could combine the two...

1 - 2 - 3 PLATES!

There is going to be a cup too.  But I haven't made it yet.  Here are the other three of the four plates.  ONWARD!

Wednesday, January 2, 2008


First plate of four.  Supposed to be kids plates, but I like them.  Its a really flat design so I am getting used to it, trying to challenge myself and all that. 

It has started off a difficult year.  I am hoping to launch the website soon with major props going to Jenny.  (<3)  Soon I will hope to be doing the robot out of happiness.  THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN.  Good things and good times are ahead.
