Kickin' it old skool

So I've recently drifted out of my animal phase and into the bizarre figures with patterns phase. I did this piece today, which was just an ink drawing but I added the stripes digitally. I have a sketchbook thats all the brown tone seen there and I'm furiously filling it with the odd and retro. I've taken a liking to adding fifties to seventies patterns to things. It's fun. I have too many damn ideas that will never work themselves out, but this is one I've kept up with.

I also did this old vacuum today. I started this other thing where I want to put fonts into the stuff I draw. Sometimes it's clever but sometimes it's just stupid.

Student Sale Results

The sale went unexpectingly well. I made a little over 300.00 which I didn't expect at all. That is a lot to me :) Lee really helped out my sales though, he's great at talking to strangers. I'm so damn awkward...
We ran out of business cards too, sweet. We have a lot of ideas for the December sale. I put up a sign for custom pet/animal portraits and I think that sold a lot of people. Mom keeps bothering me to advertise that but I don't know where to advertise it. Gah.
I hate retail, I wish I could escape the bowels of Target. I'm also thinking of making this project I'm doing in my Electronic Illustrations class into a book. I'll talk about that later when it's done.

Student Sale

I will be selling at the Student art sale this saturday from 8am to 2pm. There's a hell of a lot of talent at these shows. :)
