Smell ya later.

Two things:

First, my dog hates when you sing Billy Joel's
"For the Longest Time" through a wrapping paper roll at her face.

Second, I downloaded the game Lost Winds from Wiiware last night and it is adorable. And fun, of course.

Have a happy new year!!!!

Warm December

It's December 27th and I today I had thew windows open and shorts on. Ohio, if you don't like the, just wait around for 20 minutes.
It was in the upper 60's today. Amazing. And Louisiana gets snow, what the hell... Well, I'm fine with it.
Cleaned up all the xmas junk today, I was sick of looking at it. Woot. Xmas was dandy, btw. Lotsa new books, sweaters, gift cards, and art supplies. :)
I'm gonna make a new years resolution to really try to work towards my goal of doing more craft fairs/selling on etsy. I don't need to make a lot to live on, I mean, where I work now I barely make enough and next semester I have more classes and less time to work somewhere else. Sigh. I say it all the time but dammit, I mean it now!

Boring days...

I found this little questionaire while browsing through AshleyG's blog today. If you haven't checked her out, she's got some colorful, quirky stuff. Anyways, I was bored so here ya go:

What I was doing 10 years ago: That was 1998. I was in 8th, I was hanging out with my best friend at the time, Jamie. We we're probably sledding about this time of year, and still going for really long walks through the woods even though it was cold as shit outside. I was always sitting up in my room next to my kerosene heater watching movies in my almost dead VCR on a big old tv that had no place to go except on the floor. Ah, youth.

What is on your to-do list today (in no particular order)?
Well, it was to scan in new drawings and put them in the shop (did one of out of like four or so), mail out a print (check), go buy a frame for moms xmas gift (have yet to do), and go to work.

Snacks I enjoy: Jet's Pizza, but that's really a meal... I like BBQ Frito's, tomatoes, pickles, fruit snacks, chocolate chip cookies, ramen noodes lime chili with shrimp, cheese filled pretzels, corn dogs, cream.

Things I would I do if I was a billionaire: pay off all my student loans, of course. Pay off all debt period. Give a lot of it to my parents and my brother. Buy a house, and a horse. Get a brand newwww caaaaar. Buy my dog everything she could ever want. Donate anonymously to the humane society/aspca and to the columbus homeless shelters.

Places I have lived: King Ave. in Columbus, Ohio. Plain City, Ohio. Johnsville, Ohio. Hilliard, Ohio. Currently I live almost in Dublin, Ohio.

Jobs I have had: From the begining: Laborer at Heartland Country Resort-taking care of horses and doing trail rides, Concession stand at Mid Ohio Racing track, bagger/cart pusher/cleanup/gm clerk at Kroger, tech support at Calltech, Hardware associate at Lowe's, Backroom team member at Target, and now a print shop assistant.
If you don't know what Flight of the Conchords is, you should.
Bye ya'll

Front Page number two!!

I was on the front page of Etsy again!!! Yay!!! It was at like 2:30 in the morning, but it got a lot of views and hearts so thats good. Then I woke up this morning to find I was also featured in the Crafting in Color Team treasury. Which should be up on the CIC blog eventually. I'm glad for the exposure. It makes me think my hard work has paid off.
I have had bronchitis or something for over a week now. Don't have insurance, so I've just been jacked up on OTC cough meds. Started taking Mucinex DM, which is supposed to be pretty hardcore. Hopefully that does something. Sigh...being sick is laaaaaaaaame. Cherry gets overly concerned everytime I go into one of my coughing fits. What a swell dog she is.
Christmas in four days. Then crazy new years time. Shoot dang.

technique...and stuff.

Did this piece today just trying to get my watercolor/ink technique down...didn't turn out as I'd hoped, but that's okay. Now I know what to work on... I gotta get it looking good by the time I submit stuff to the Society of Illustrators in January. It's a pretty shitty time trying to get into it, but if you do get in, you're set.

Dad on the porch. 9" x12".

Yay it's friday!

What little originals I'm putting up are selling, so that makes me happy. I like doing those and I think people enjoy having original pieces. It still amazes me each time someone is wiilling to pay for my artwork.

Didn't get into the CCAD Dec. sale...its a bummer because I was really counting on that money to buy xmas gifts. Ah well.

Sold this original today, little curious colt guy.
I have to buy more watercolor paper...
One week left of classes til xmas break, next sem. is going to be a pain. Oh well, I'm that much closer to graduating.
