Just in time on halloween. Here's some things for you all to look at!

Originally, this was an assignment to make a new book cover for our favorite author/book. I chose Scary Stories wirtten by Alvin Schwartz, with beautiful illustrations by Stephen Gammell. My goal was to get that same feeling of horror when looking at Gammell's drawings. Have I succeeded?

May everyone have a crazy-filled halloween!

Bless you.

My cat likes to sneeze on me while I sleep.
And then he bites me after he tricks me into thinking that he actually wants cuddles.

So like, you know how sometimes you get these inconvenient things called 'artists block'?
I feel like it's caused by when you get bored of how you're drawing, and you need something completely new and different out of your comfort zone to excite you all over again. Or maybe it's not even just being bored with how you're drawing, but the things you make don't make you happy anymore, or they start to infuriate you because everything you try making just doesn't come to any sort of self-satisfaction.
So over the summer, I was able to throw my art block out the fire escape by using a bunch of mixed media techniques; gouache, pastels, brush-inking, etc. I would think of what emotion would be coming to mind or which direction my hand feels like it should go instead of my brain telling which direction my hand should go in.

This was the start of it, inspired by Masha

Also- a complete new design for my blog! Much prettier than before.

Edit- maybe a bit too green? Makes me think of puke. But green happens to be one of my favorite colors. I'm conflicted with ugliness and favorite colors. Oh well.
