Illustration Friday: Balloon

Originally I was going to draw something with a hot air balloon because I love them and they're so cool, yet I dare not ever go in one...unless it's with wine of course and perhaps a blindfold. This is actually based off a painting hanging in my friend's apartment. It's a different approach to the same picture tho and this was a quick solution to this weeks topic and I am pretty happy with it.
I think the next few weeks to come are going to get real busy with all my little projects, gift making, work, at some point designing christmas cards, laying out my website (so everyone can finally see what I do in a whole) umm toy designs and posting some of the other stuff on here that keeps me occupied most of the time... I'm sure by the end of the month I am going to want to sail away on a little balloon to somewhere far and un-stressing (I know I know that's not a real word :p )

Illustration Friday: Late

I guess I would say this is inspired by Alice in Wonderland...The whole rabbit being late thing. I do wish I had gone about this differently but I having been working more on my Halloween costume than my illustrations lately. Oh well... At least I was still able to put sometime into this and I hope it turns out well.

Illustration Friday: Sugary

I like this topic because the first thing I thought of was this cute little candy store on the corner of washington ave. in my town that was across the street from the middle school. Actually I remember it's name "Rainbow Corner." I think it was actually deli/ diner kind of thing but when you first walked in at the counter there was tons of candy in the window and all over the counter and on the back wall.This probably doesn't sound to excited but when your a young liz its pretty amazing. I remember on the days I had to walk to school stopping off at the store and filling a small paper page with candy using my lunch money. Sadly to say tho the store is now a real estate agent. yay....

Illustration Friday: Packed

This feels a little incomplete to me. It really is and it's been hard not taking most of my hand colored stuff into the computer and completely redoing it in illustrator. I must resist....
I'm very much in the mood for fall right now and fall-like things...
enjoy :)

Illustration Friday: Routine

One of my many morning routines is the agonizing 20-30 mins it takes to battle my unruly hair and curls to straightness...usually by the time it's done you would never have known...

This one was inspired by my pet goldfish, shark ( I know, not a very creative name)
However, I think these worms would eat him...

Birthday cd for Melissa

Hopefully she doesn't go on my blog today because I am planning on giving it to her later. But here is a mix cd I made for my friend. Or I should say the case I scrapped together. Since I work for a scrapbooking company you get a lot of ideas to make your own stuff and I usually make my own cases and stuff when I make mix cd presents but now I have gotten into the whole altered art kind of thing. It's kind of nice to get away from the computer, be crafty and make something someone will really love because its handmade.
Sooo Happy Birthday Melissa!!(even tho it's kind of a month late)

A nice day for flying a kite...

Eh, two Sundays ago a bunch of us headed over to a park for a day of flying kites and a bbq. It really turned out to be a beautiful day since it was expected to rain and be a kind of damp and gloomy. At some point everyone grabbed their kites and headed on over to the large grassy lawn. I of course did not bring a kite however one of my friends brought extras just incase someone like me came along. I picked up the one laying down on the ground that everyone seemed to abandon and sadly to say there was reason for it. Not totally understanding how exactly one does fly a kite, I sort of throw it up in the air and start to walk briskly and then into a jog. However my kite never really gets too far off the ground. It was like walking a uncontrollable dog thats doesn't really want to come along for the walk. Sadly to say it really never did sore up into the sky like I wanted it to or like how everyone else's did but I didn't want to give up on it. It may have never gotten two feet off the ground but it tried and that's all thats counts...

A sketch from my trip...

So a few weeks ago, I went to Dublin and Prague with two of friends. It seriously feels like it was months ago. That's so unfortunate because it was a great experience and a fun time. I miss it all. Here's is something to commemorate at least part of the trip. If I get some free time I may actually try to do some realistic sketches of what I saw in Prague. We shall see....

Happy Mother's Day!

I finally have a new drawing! I worked on this for my grandma's Mother's Day present. I felt like I haven't made her a good drawing since I was younger so I decided to make her something all homemade which always good.

A toast to Kerry

Here's something I sketched out for my first colorful entry! Since I asked my friends for some help on picking a name for my blog I picked this one which was created by Kerry. In return I said I would draw a picture of whoever's name I ended up picking. So here we go!
