Note cards & another T-shirt

The semester is coming to an end so I've been working almost non-stop. There should be a lot to look at here over the next few weeks. When I've been working so much sometimes I can't stop my mind or my hand... from drawing on everything :-)

Usugrow's lotus design, hand cut red film. My ink was too thin so this is the ONLY one that came out clean. Om. very clean lines & perfect registration. I pat myself on the back.

3 NEW prints!!

I've been neglectful the past month. I was in a slump but I pulled myself out of it. Last night in serigraphy class I did a ton of work and I wanted to share it with you. Next week I'll have 2 more prints to share. My screen for them has already been prepared I just ran out of time. I'm really enjoying screen printing but it's super messy.

I absolutely LOVE the Gnarls Barkley logo. Photo exposure

Once upon a time I was not a dog lover. That old me would punch the new me in the face for printing my dog on a shirt. But Winston is sooo cute and even Rose McGowan loves Boston Terriers! Green Film

This is the heart tree I posted before, only I remade the stencil. Cut paper. I take crappy photos and for that I apologize, but I'm very satisfied with the results.

I love Halloween

I procrastinated on the decision for a costume until I got off work yesterday. I originally wanted to be Tina Fey as Sarah Palin, but then I discovered it wasn't so original. Wanting a costume cheap as free, I was teetering on Wednesday Addams, the Mad Hatter, and either Columbine or Magenta from Rocky Horror. I ended up deciding on Mia Wallace, Uma Thurman's character in Pulp Fiction. But Mia Wallace was not good enough, no. It had to be Mia Wallace just after being revived from her drug overdose. So aside from the black wig, white dress shirt, and black pants I went barefoot, did *lack of oxygen* makeup, a bloody nose, and a syringe sticking out of my chest. I had a lot of fun.

Being that my costume was so last minute, there weren't any short black wigs to be found in the entire Quail Springs area of N OKC. So I bought a long black one that originally had a crazy braided bun and 4 long braids hanging down the back. My sister proved her worth and helped fix up my wig (she's in cosmetology school). This is what it looked like after we got the braids out.

She told me not to tell people she cut it because "it would look so much better if it were real hair" but i think she did an awesome job considering I gave her 10 minutes and we had to flat iron it and curl it afterward. Reenactment
