  • 05/29/12--12:19: Helping out a friend.

  • Hey guys, some of you may remember the painting I did of the magician Dan Sperry awhile back. Dan is an awesome guy and an amazing magician. After making that painting I was lucky enough to actually be able to meet him in person for my birthday and have him sign a copy of the painting. It was a great experience and tons of fun. But his mother-in-law is in need of a little help now. To make a long story short a few weeks ago his mother-in-law went to the hospital because she wasn't feeling well.  The doctors ran tests and whatnot and discovered she has stage 4 colon cancer.  The cancer has also spread to her lungs, neck, liver, and lymph nodes

    Edit: uploaded a picture of the flier for you guys to see. http://sta.sh/0erbtviw0iy

    So I moved again last week into a new town home with my mother and sister. The place is pretty nice, my room is good sized, it's a pretty neighborhood, all in all a nice place to live. So I thought until this morning, when a flier was tucked into our front door. The headline of this flier? "Attention! The Mark of the beast (666) RFID is coming soon. We must not take it!" Yeah. I just got a flier about how RFID chips (similar to what you put into your dog in case they get lost) are the sign of the devil. :lol:

  • 05/31/12--21:18: Sunset Surf
  • Something a little different then my normal style here. It was really fun though, and over all I'm pretty happy with it. I might stick with this style, though it still needs a little refining.

    This is my character Zip. His bio is here, if you're interested: [link] I've recently started to work with Zip a lot more, and the more I develop him the more I love him.

    His shark bite scar took several tries, mostly because I couldn't find more than one pixilated reference of the type of bite I wanted. This one, to be exact: [link] . I'm pretty happy with it though, but I'd appreciate any tips you guys might have for the next time I draw him.

    I welcome all types of critique!

  • 06/05/12--17:01: Shark Attack
  • So here's the story of how my character Zip got attacked by a shark. Been meaning to write it for ages...:XD:

    I was planning on having Zip catch a couple waves before he got bit, but then I realized that I have zero knowledge of surfing aside from the term "duck-diving" and I gave up this time around. I'll rent some surfer movies before I try writing about him again. :XD:

    Also, his brother Alan is about 22 in this story.

    Tell me what you think please!



    All characters (C) Me

    “I’m going surfing, Alan!” I shouted at my brother as I wiggled my way out the door with my board, attempting to only open it wide enough that our dog, Big Ben, couldn’t follow me out. It wasn’t that hard, given the aptitude of his name.
    I jogged out into the cool surf behind our California beach home, duck-diving under a small wave and came up paddling farther into the ocean. It wasn’t the best day for big waves, but there were still a few moderately sized ones coming in according to the online surfing report. I sat up, scanning the horizon, fingers trailing in the water lapping at my board. I just h

  • 06/14/12--15:43: Ashley Purdy
  • Anyone who's seen the pictures of Black Veil Brides from Download 2012 will know that they've got a new look. A very sexy, grungy, punk look. And I love it. So I'm going to do a series of paintings, one of each of the members, with their new grungy look. (I'm also making it a goal to one day get each of them to sign their picture. XD)

    Anyways. This was a ton of fun to make and I did it in around 12ish hours in two sessions. You can watch the entire, compiled, livestream session, here: [link] . Overall I'm really happy with it, especially his bass (which was about 15 layers total to get all the graphics on it layered correctly). I know the quote isn't the best style wise, I'm still trying to get the hang of typography type stuff.

    Also, thanks to @SaraLynnBVB for hanging with me the past couple days while I worked on this!

    Comments/Critiques are welcomed and wanted!

    New Mortal Instruments fanfiction! I'll be posting a chapter every week both here and on ff.net, but the chapters on ff.net will be one week ahead of the ones here.

    Anyways, I've had the idea for this story for over a year now, but no time at all to write it. I finally found time though, and I'm glad I did. I'm super happy with this story, and I think I've managed to capture the characters better then I ever have before. I also have all but the last chapter of the story written already, so I can 100% gauruntee regular updates! Okay... 99%. Shit happens. The story will be nine chapters, plus an epilogue. I'll post a new chapter every Thursday or Friday.

    As for the story, it is compliant up to City of Glass. I actually started this before the events of City of Lost Souls, but I've had the idea since before even City of Fallen Angels. I'm also pretending the end of City of Lost Souls doesn't exist... Anyways. There's also a lot of little tidbits hidden throughout the story, so be sure to keep an eye out! Some have to do with TID, some with extras from Cassie, and some with random stuff Cassie has said on twitter/tumblr/whatever.

    I'll shut up now. Hope you enjoy the first chapter!

    "I've missed date night." I grinned, reaching out and snagging Alec with my arm to pull him closer.
    He  smiled a little and settled into my side as we walked, "I have to. Well. I've missed it when it's successful." I felt his elbow jab playfully into my side.
    "Hey, I didn't know you'd be allergic to those flowers! Are you going to hold that date against me forever?"
    "Potentially. I mean, it was our first date."
    "Personally,  I don't count that as our first date. I count that little Italian Restaurant downtown as our first date because that was the first time we  went out after you came out to your parents."
    "And because you didn't nearly kill

    I get that feeling a lot. I come from a huge catholic family (Grandparents had ten kids, Grandpa had eleven siblings, Grandpa had seven siblings, you get the idea.). And our family has been in the U.S. for over 200 years, so we've got a fair amount of stories to tell. Whenever we go up to our family cabin in the Rocky Mountains it's pretty likely that stories will start getting told about when my grandpa fought in WWII and when my dad and his brothers and sisters were kids. I've always loved these stories and I love to just sit and listen. A ton of them got told this weekend and last when I was up there. Whenever I hear them though, it makes

  • 06/19/12--16:36: Falling Upside Down
  • A quick painting of my OC Ana and her boyfriend Damien who belongs to :devilovewritting26: Not 100% happy with Ana, but it's only the 2nd time I've drawn her, so maybe I'm just not used to her or something. Who knows.

    The title comes from the Rascal Flatts song "Falling Upside Down" which I was listening to while painting this, and it fits the two of them very well.

    I've had a rather shitty week for a myriad of reasons. This isn't about that though, it's about what made up for it. As you're all probably well aware, I've recently had a pretty big obsession with the band Black Veil Brides. Yeah, a lot of people don't like them for a multitude of reasons, but I do. I like them to the point of doing multiple paintings of them, and I'm working on more right now. My most recent one was a painting of Ashley Purdy, the bassist from the band:

    Well today I got a tweet from Ashley Purdy himself saying that he'd watched the video of me painting it on youtube and that he thought the painting was

    Sorry this is a tad late guys, this week has been full of curve balls for me.

    Also...sorry for my terrible characterization of Izzy, Jace and Simon. There's a reason they aren't in many of my stories...

    Chapter Listing: [link]

    “Izzy?” I whispered, looking around me. I wasn’t sure why I was whispering, this was the middle of Central Park after all. I didn’t exactly have to hide or anything.
    “Simon.” I heard her off to my left a little and walked until I found her sitting, knees clutched to her chest in a small hallow created by the roots of a tree.
    “Iz,” Before I could even sit all the way down she’d launched herself into my arms and buried her head in my shoulder. “Iz, tell me what happened. Did…did you figure something out about Alec?”
    Three days ago Clary and I had been sitting on

  • 06/27/12--12:36: Please Help
  • Please take a moment to read this and help out the people in my home-state of Colorado who are suffering under the effects of the worst fire season we have ever had.

    As many of you know, I live in Colorado U.S.A. It's only the beginning of the fire season for us, but it's already become the worst fire season we have ever had. There are currently 12 large fires burning throughout the state. Thousands of acres have burned and thousands more people have been forced out of or lost their homes.
    Thankfully, I don't live near any of the current fires. I do, however, have a cabin in the mountains (which thankfully isn't near any fires yet, but the mountain it's on would go up in a flash if it lit) and I have a lot of friends who live in the mountains, some of whom have homes very close to several of the fires.

  • 06/28/12--20:41: New Kitty!
  • I got a new kitty! Yes, you all do need to know about this, purely because she's adorable.

    Due to the rather shitty weekend I had a couple weeks ago, I decided to get myself a cat to make up for it. (yes, I realize this makes me sound like a crazy cat lady in the making...) And today I was finally able to get down to the shelter and pick one! She's a little, three year old, black cat with beautiful bright orange eyes. I've named her Rebel after the Black Veil Brides song "Rebel Love Song." I chose to name her after a BVB song since listening to their music helped get me through said shitty weekend. Rebel is a total sweetheart, very snuggly and sweet.
