Green Girl

self-inspired? perhaps. perhaps.
the best thing about this picture is that total it took less than 2 hours to draw and color. why can't I just be inspired all the time?!??!?!!? oh, but that would be TOO easy. :P

Matthea's friend!

bluelined this on my lunch break, and finished inking it at home. I guess a comic in a day IS possible, when you're inspired!

this is a true story, by the bye.

face face

doodling. tis fun, that.
some based on real, most out of head, somewhat inspired by the movie Secret of Kells which looks amazing.

fairy forays

some funny fairy faces. herher, say that fast. :) anyhow. these are cute cartoony ones. crazy hair probably inspired by Ponyo (GO SEE PONYO IT'S AWESOME).

more realistic... playing with character design...

and my favorite; channeling Charles Gibson and Fred Moore. huzzah. I really like this... might try to do a digital painting of it, if I have time... ha. time. ha.


applying for loans is never fun.

it's times when I'm stressed and uncertain that I miss him the most.

I started a photo blog, and have been trying to upload something onto it every day (because I have so many darn pictures). so, now that it has some stuff on it, here it is.

Carlo Collodi is a fun name.

Quote of the day:
"You're dead if you aim only for kids. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.”
--Walt Disney (from this kinda cool LIFE photo essay)

A month or so ago I was with Matt at Half-Price Books, and picked up Carlo Collodi’s original Pinocchio story. And then I drew this.

(ink and marker over blue line)
YES. In the original story there are creepy ghost bunnies who come and wait for Pinocchio to die and take him away because he won’t drink the medicine the Blue Fairy makes for him. Pinocchio was a BRAT. But he’s not, by the end.

I still love the film Disney made of this story. It’s art! It’s BEAUTIFUL animation, and though they changed the story a lot, it still is a great story. *suppresses the urge to gush and geek out.*

However… in the film, Pinocchio is just naïve, rather than a real brat. (I know why Walt said to change it though - the original story treatment was very like the book. but, they way ol' puppet-head is at first, you kind of hate him, and Walt's all about the sympathetic characters.) Stromboli was called Fire-eater, and he wasn’t really that bad. Pinocchio himself was both the bad guy and the antagonist (at first). Somehow, with him being so awful at the beginning and slowly changing throughout the fairly long story, it’s got a bit more weight. Leastwise, that’s MY humble opinion.

oh, rain

storming outside.

I haven't drawn fairies in a long time. when I first started REALLY drawing (early high school) it was mostly fantasy stuff, heavily inspired by lord of the rings and .hack and the legend of zelda and comics by CLAMP other random sources. then in college I tried aiming for a more realistic style, which I think I accomplished somewhat. now I'm devolving back into cartoon/stylization, though now the cartoons are much more informed. darn it, Mr. Stocker was right. :)

so here's some fairies. I don't know what they're looking at, but it must be somewhat... shocking. you tell me.

and this one, I think will be a moth fairy, all brown and gray. there were actually a couple moths in the kitchen this morning, and I got pictures of one that sat still on the ceiling (had to climb up on a chair) but the other one flew down around the floor and I think the cat ate it.

and for kicks, another of Blanche. woot.
