Hello internet! Confession: I haven't been working on a lot of art recently. I have been feverishly working on finishing my master's project (AND I FINISHED IT! YESSSS!), preparing mentally for the start of another school year, and throwing a rad Robot Moana Birthday party. Anyways, Eric asked me to draw some zentangles for him… Continue reading Art Progress?
This week I managed to go from zero to completed on another paper cut. This is a zentangle design done by my lovely wife. I'm eagerly awaiting her finishing another more complicated design for me to etch out. Oddly enough, though I did put in a lot of time into this, and I didn't have… Continue reading Xen Tangle
Yesterday our little girl turned two. She's growing up so faaaaast! Bwaaaah. Anyways. Iris has been super into robots and Moana so a party theme was born. A robot Moana Luau! Naturally there had to be some robots attending her robot Moana luau so check out some decorations I made for the party. Welcome to… Continue reading Robot Moana Birthday
A few weeks ago we took our little spawn to the aquarium. Ever since she's been demanding a return to "Nemo's House" which is both adorable and heart breaking since it's too far away for a casual visit. She has a small plush Nemo that she's been carrying around as well, and as of this… Continue reading Nemo’s House
So we have some new neighbors. I HATE THEM. They are these ANNOYING birds. CAW CAW CAWING ALL DAY LONG. I'm not talking pretty bird calls... I am talking constant horrible noise pollution that muuuuuuust stooooop. I saw one the other day and it was pretty big so I looked it up, looked like… Continue reading Porch Progress
Another week by but this time I have a completed cut, and as mentioned in the previous entry it's subject matter is atypical of my usual paper cuts. Since the shapes were a lot more representational than usual this one took a little more planning. Also, since the person that was doing the planning didn't… Continue reading The trees have little knobby things they take forever and you can barely see them.
Happy Monday to all! Eric and I have been gone all weekend arriving home this afternoon. We. Are. Tired. Baby girl decided to be an awful sleeper this weekend. At least she makes up for it by being cute, right? Today's challenge was: quick draw- portrait style. We began by completing a basic drawing exercise-… Continue reading Melee Monday: Quick Draw- Portrait Style
Baby don't hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more. Great, now I will have that song in my head for the whole weekend. Don't forget to vote on last week's Melee Monday/Face Off/whatever you want to call it post. Whoever gets the most votes gets ice cream. I NEED THAT ICE CREAM. Currently we are… Continue reading What is love?
The past few days have not left a lot of time for drawing, but I did manage to put the final cuts into my latest positive/negative space piece. This is actually the back I am yet to decide if it needs to be inked black. Either way the last two steps are faster and easier… Continue reading A quick update
It's MONDAY (almost not anymore) and you know what that means. It's time for a... FACE/OFF.GIF. I mean Melee Monday. This week the topic is clickbait topical yet again because everyone's favorite fantasy soap opera is back, Game of Thrones! More accurately it was for each of us to draw our favorite character from said… Continue reading Let it go
