Cats Paw & Hot Hair

Not sure where I was really going with this, I just really like lines. I am (rather obviously) not very particular about them and the fact that the line up with one another super well. No ruler was used. Oh well.

Yeah apparently that little weird fauxhawk thing pretty cute when its not a douchy guy in a polo. So this card happened.

Its also my birthday! So Happy birthday to me :D

That is a fun word to say. I like skulls, but its a harder word for me to pronounce for some reason. But ROCKET is much easier.

Curled Up

I had my other, other, speakers plugged into my computer. The ones with the sub speaker.
I listen to decent music at work, but its mostly indy-ish music because thats what my boss likes. I don't know what he would think of the house/techno stuff I normally play. Most people wouldn't be able to concentrate but I can take the most amazing and restful naps.

Its possible that all the things going on in the music gives my brain something to do while I use just a part of it to do something else. Its kind of like I have ADD but its mild and I taught myself to block out things. Then I weened myself off of it and now I can do both. Wouldn't work for everyone, but worked for me.

These are out of order now. I remember this being the first drawing that I had to get up and go get my gray tone markers. It just needed it! Then I made the previous one about the tape. Oh well.

More Tape

This is about...half of my sense of humor. I enjoy the absurd. Things in my head go together. Teeny roll of tape :3

I was thinking about reusing the masking tape for the borders of these drawings and how long could I reuse pieces for before they were mostly useless or too covered in marker.

I don't even need to save tape that much, I'm not quite that poor. Though I did pilfer this current roll from my mom rather than go out and buy my own, sooo...

Creepy Grass

Creepy Grass is creeeeeepy.
I don't really know. I think I was just playing with the negative space on this. I've seen people draw back over stuff with white, but I love everything I've done so much more when its not perfect and I have to remember that I wanted to leave a gap, or not color in the teeth.

OR that I have to make the teeth/eyes extra big because when I color in around them it will make them look much smaller.

creepy creepy creepy

Women's Baseball

I don't know what happened here. I drew this lady head and I didn't like it and then somehow all the accesories happened and the little skull and then the "sunglasses" because the eyes were creepy.

Filled in the background here because I could. You can see where it bleeds a little but that seems to be what is kind of happening with these. Its just the marker and the type of paper I am using. Its just how it is.

As a disclaimer I don't know anything at all about women's baseball. Don't get upset and eat a kitten or anything.

This was a lot of eyes to draw. While I did so I was thinking that maybe they were eggs. Then I drew a few that were too close together and some of them looked like crude boobs...
Circles! they can be anything!
Still liking the border thing, even when its not super obvious it was there.

This was the first one I did with the masking tape. I feel like someone could point out how the arms are wrong, but just relaaaaax people! Because I don't care, HA!

I like how the texture in the background came out. Markers are pretty sweet.

I really like color, but I seem to always gravitate towards black and white with pops of color vs. colors all over or full color stuff. Something to ponder, maybe something to push once I get bored with these. Maybe it will just happen naturally.

maybe its just kind of an exercise?

After sort of being settled at my job I found that I no longer came home and felt like crap. Actually compared to how much stress I had in my old position I could probably do my current job for two weeks straight without being at the same level of stress.

I decided to get myself back in the swing of posting things I would start making regular stuff and posting those. Kind of like a very free form assignment.

A while ago I cut a few sheets of white cardstock into quarters and then I drew the above. After that I didn't touch it anymore. Then recently I started going at it again with a inch masking tape border. I like it they're fairly quick and it makes me feel accomplished. I'm finding that is my motivator, feeling like I have actually done something.

So the plan is to make them on my weekends and post one a day during the week. In the past this has been my major issues, but coincidentally at my new job I am doing lots of printing/production style work so my main function right now is to produce stuff and then get it out to the departments so they can put it up for the customers. So I'm sort of putting that mental frame of mind to work on this. We shall see!

I will be cross-posting the images to my tumblr, but words about them will end up here and the tumblr posts will be directed back to here.
