Making my Parents Proud



If you haven't noticed lately, I've turned into even more of a nerd.
{And even I didn't think it was possible}
I'm not just writing about my life like a normal person, no no, I'm drawing about it now. It's a whole new level of geek over here.

A little background. I'm a doodler. I doodle. constantly. On scraps of paper. Napkins. Humans.

Especially while talking on the phone. I.must.draw.something.

So, I have decided to channel my inner Andrea del Sarto meets Charles M. Schulz into some more "productive" scribbles.

Lucky, lucky you.

My medium:
Mac Paintbrush
My inspiration: my life, your life, life in general, random musings, {the oatmeal, à la less f-bombs and general debauchery}.
My purpose: conjure up the past, define memorable experiences, visual storytelling, make myself/Daniel/family/friends laugh. Mainly making myself laugh. It happens. a lot.

Hope you enjoy!


xoxo

I thoroughly enjoy your fine art. It's amazing. You're amazing.

Sarah Frills4Thrills said...

i always enjoy your art. it's like the kind you see in museums that you just stand at, look, and ponder what the artist was thinking/intending whilst creating such a fine piece of art. except, yours aren't as hard to figure out : )

Shalyn said...
