I never said this was going to be all cute and rainbows

I saw Drive a while ago. It was entertaining and well lit and directed. I really applaud excellent lighting in movies, because I think it hard to do well and when its done well its beautiful. Ideally I would like to mimic well done lighting in more paintings but you know, time, energy, patience and all that. Anyhoo, I decided to draw this scene for whatever reason, and now i'm sharing it with "the world"
When I draw Ryan Gosling, I make sure to make him not cute.

Cute cuddly things.

More photos from random bay area adventures. A couple staring one F13
I love him, but I'm not sure if I could handle a world with two of him *smiley face*
And check out my super sweet 1983 original burger king Return of the Jedi Ewok cup! I know you're jelly.
Baby ewoks in the hizouse.

About two weeks ago we happened to end up in a really great junk shop in Berkeley after hunting for antique finds. I cant remember the name of the shop now, but it was a tiny little place and they had boxes of fantastic old, mostly blank postcards. I decided to grab a bunch to send to friends and family since have still been unable to visit *grumble* but it works out fine since living here is kind of like being on really great stay-cation. Anyhoo, here are some scans of some of them, and some doodles I did on the back of them so this blog can still be about my art stuffs.
How cute is the girl on the trolly? And how about that pan am bag (mediocre network series non-withstanding)?

Fall! and Photos!

Has it really been over a month since I last posted? Sadly yes. but I think to help improve post frequency I'm going to do a little experiment here and start posting some of my photos and random stuff that makes me smile. I'm still art-ing (and I've even picked up several new hobbies..) and I'll definitely be continuing to show that stuff here too but in the mean time.. First I painted my nail all Kate Spade-y with a touch of Geninne's inspired art on my thumb
Then the other day I noticed this. You can tell its a girl car because of the eyelashes
And its fall in the bay area. You know what that means?! SPIDERS. EVERYWHERE.
That is over my front door frame. There are so many cobwebs that appear we dont really need to decorate for Halloween...
