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"

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.

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
