I am actually still pretty alive but have been kind of buried in freelance/full time job for a while (close to the end of the tunnel, though.)
I’m going to start trying to post sketches more often. believe in me
I forgot to post this and I’m kind of embarrassed about that, but here is something I did for the Light Grey Art Lab 6 Degrees show recently.
This has been a weirdly emotional piece for me in that I regret that I didn’t make certain decisions/realizations in time (since I had to get postcards made) as far as how i would’ve approached the concept/aesthetics, but alas. Moving forward and learning all that jazz.
Anyway, the show was about something local to you or where you live - my neighborhood (Bay Ridge, Brooklyn) has a fairly large elderly population full of women who remind me of my grandmother (that’s a compliment), so I stereotyped a little bit here, haha.
i think if my cat were a person she would be a precious child of the 80s
also she’s been stealing tortilla chips all day
whenever i decide to change a character’s eye direction i always seem to do it one eye at a time and i end up with these beautiful moments
i feel like i am one with my art tonight
Here’s a thing i did for BUST magazine a couple of months ago or so. Thank you to AD/brunch-pal/illustrator/designer Lan Truong
also updated my website if anyone’s … interested lol (I went Cargo! I feel like if it’s less of a pain to update maybe I’ll do it more often!)
I’m ‘kind of in this lull of having a little too much on my plate right now to do much personal or exploratory work, but I’m trying to sketch here and there with the tiny beacon of hope that things should open up by February. Fingers crossed, anyway; I miss just making stuff and I think I really need that in my life again. HAPPY SATURDAY
