Do you remember my post about my art from awhile back? Well, luckily my mom is absolutely fabulous and has saved basically ALL of my childhood art. So we trekked into my Grandmother’s attic searching through boxes of my old art so I can show you these gems:
Yay for some Sailor Moon love! I was obsessed back then. . .
Some of my first ever ‘serious’ drawings, by which I mean I had taken a real interest in drawing at this point. These are all from when I was 11. So much fun to go back and look!
Currently, I’ve got three works going – first is this commission for two lovely ladies. It’s going to be a wedding present from the woman on the left to her soon-to-be wife!
Then I have my just-for-fun piece. It’s a montage/poster of Pentatonix (the most AMAZING a capella group ever – go YouTube them immediately if you’ve never heard of them; you will not be disappointed!) My refs for this one were all screen grabs I took from their Radioactive video with Lindsey Stirling. I just loved the costumes in it, and that they all look totally badass! New life goal once it’s finished: someday meet them so they can sign it.
And then I just started a new piece for a contest on DeviantArt. The contest is called ‘Nightmares’ and if my piece goes according to plan it will be my first ever self-portrait. . .and there will be spiders. Freaking out a little bit about drawing them as I truly get uncomfortable just looking at pictures of them. AHHHHHH. *Deep breaths* I can do it!
So with all of that, plus some wall art paintings for my daughter’s room, I have some serious art on my hands this week! Wouldn’t have it any other way.
Until next time,

Ah- the good ‘ol days!
Yup! The sketchbook those came from are just packed with all my old favorite animes/manga drawings. Cowboy Bepop, Card Captor Sakura, Chobits, dotHACK – it just goes on and on. I about died every time I turned the page lol!
