#Watchforever

I got tagged by Heidi - she made a #watchforever post, and I'd like to do something similar. I'm constantly being inspired by people around me, and these deviants are the ones who keep me creating. These are the ones who enrich my life, even if we don't get to hang out very often. 

scatteredcomics - Jason at Scattered made comics back when I was doing them, and he's STILL creating. He's inspiring new artists. He's amazing. Also he named my penguin sidekick.

Pompeii by pinguino
Pompeii
I did this painting on a cabinet on commission for a book coming out next year. Will post more details about it when it's released. This is a huge departure from my usual style. It's supposed to replicate how a cabinet would have been painting in Pompeii. It was on display at the International Puzzle Party in London in 2014.

Quick trip to winter..

Tue Feb 24, 2015, 6:11 PM


Last week, my boyfriend and I flew to Utah to watch his dad get a promotion at a University. It was a pretty fantastic event, and was cool to see a part of his life we hadn't been exposed to before. I played sushi chef afterwards at a dinner at his home, and even made blue riceballs of their school mascot, a bull. 

The next day, I taught four comic book classes at the Bear River Charter school. Basically, I taught 5-8th graders the basics of making minicomics, and the mechanics of comic book storytelling. Some were intrigued that you could have a career in art- the community they lived in didn't have many professional artists. Being exposed to art every day, it surprised me to hear that.

On Saturday, I watched the blue skies drop tiny slowflakes, and within a couple hours, Utah looked like a Christmas card. It's been pretty summer-like in Los Angeles lately, so the contrast was pretty surreal. We drove into the mountains and went sledding, and built a snowladycatthing. Super fun!

i think they got added as a April Fool's Day thing and people just give them to each other. Gives you a reason to check out deviants who you don't normally interact with and see their art and stuff. Plus if you trade them you get fancier and fancier llamas to show on your page. Just goofy fun.
