It's tough all over

I promise I'll try not to complain as much about the traffic in L.A. if someone will just send me back there!

I don't always work this cheap

(for 2 suces and the chocolate nut topping off an icecream cone.)

Week one of a two week pose.  I didn't even bother to ask his name.  I feel so cheap.

Other People Exist

It's been a couple of years, but I've finally worn my way through my graphic tee collection back to the "Other People Exist" t-shirt.  Ironically I was wearing this in line at the Starbucks this morning when a man all but pushed me out of the way to beat me to the head of the line.  He must have really needed a coffee.  I didn't take him down as I normally would.  I find when I wear this tee I'm reminded to be a kinder, gentler me.  Curse you Kurt!

I tend to be a magnet for unwanted attention too.  If there's a nutbag out there....

If there is ever an apocalypse and I survive it, I'm going to the National Gallery and touching all of the art.

Yoga.  It's all the craze amongst the upperclass ducks in the Village of Britannia.  I've noticed they're a lot snootier this year.  Once they start wearing lululemon I'm outta there!

Suck it up buttercup

her: " My room smells bad."
me: " I opened the window to air it out. What's it smell like?"
her:  "Outside. It stinks. I hate that smell."

This rabbit (Nuggies) didn't need rescuing for health reasons, but rather for his poor fashion sense.

Perpetual and I have been remiss in our duties, but after months of no posts, we are back in full force with two posts in a row!

I forget why Perp Choc stopped posting here, but I don't think the internet ever had a better artwork-in-progress blog, whereas it has more than enough snarkily-captioned-humorous-pictures blogs like mine (to which I still occasionally post, even though my top commenter is myself using a different name).

Did Perp Choc quit drawing and painting, or did she just quit posting her work here for us to see? Only she (and anyone else who knows the answer) can say for sure. At least we still have the frog banner to admire. That is all.

Yeah!  Finally gained control of this account again.  Time to kill this sucker!

Making Lemonade

While most would immediately call the exterminator should they find rats in their abode (or school cafeteria thus shutting services down for two weeks) we prefer to pamper our rats.  That way they feel suitably happy and don't gnaw on your face while you slumber.

Okay, thank you to those who said they would have bought my work from the Figureworks show had they had the chance. BUT, it was bought by a fellow artist, who really loved it and snapped it up just after the show opened.  I don't think it could possibly have a better home.  I'm quite tickled that one of my peers, who never buys art, had to have it.

"It's all there in black and white"

At last nights vernissage Mr. P and I walked around the gallery just after the show opened and checked out all the art work.  On our second pass around Mr. P noticed that someone had placed a red sticker on my tag.

Mr. P.: "Why is there a red sticker on your tag?"

Me:  "That means it sold."

Mr. P:  ", really.  Why is there a red sticker on your tag?"

Me:  "Because it sold."

Mr. P.  "Are any of your relatives here?"

Me:  "It wouldn't surprise me, but that would just be depressing."

I can save face and say that it did get snapped up right away by someone that was not a relative and that I didn't know, who "never buys art" but just loved the work.

Mom and Dad's House

I thought 'wouldn't it be nice to work with a medium that's quicker to work with than coloured pencil'.  It was for the first two pictures I did, but somewhere along the way I lost track of the purpose of working in ink and ended up here.  Highly detailed, many hours later, pulling my hair out.  Sigh.  When will I learn?  Probably never.  Just not very bright I guess.

"It's all there in black and white has been juried into this years Figureworks award show which runs from November 20th to December 2nd at St.Brigid's Centre for the Arts.

I'm still working on this one.  Pen and Ink drawing of a street on the Market.  Although these can be worked faster than a coloured pencil work, they are very unforgiving.  One mistake and you're done.  Why do I do this to myself;-)
