All decked in lace and leather

Edit: Hey guys, I just found out that way back in November I was given a little feature on a page called "DesignHer" I thought it was pretty cool as its a page dedicated to women artists in a variety of fields! They're always looking for new artists to feature, so my fellows ladies should get in on that! Neeeeat! Thanks, guys!

So I keep lying and promising to post more, but pretty much taking month long breaks in between. The truth is, I've been so busy with work and having a ridiculous crush on Robert Pattinson and feeling dirty for it. Tee hee. I have also been listening to an inordinate amount of Britney Spears, Beyonce, and, my all time love, Christina Aguilera. That is very time consuming, duh. But I seriously think the amount of pop music in my life is about to have a drastic effect on my artwork.

I haven't really been doing any finished pieces. I'd been trying to hold out till I finished something I deemed "complete" and "good", but I finally realized it was just time to post some good ol' sketches.
So here we go, a little smattering of my favorite subject matter, naked ladies.

I did this one day at work when I felt incredibly ill and foresaw myself in the very near future perched over a toilet seat like this. It is endearingly titled "Sickface sketchface".

I drew that cat/dog girl one day, also at work, on my lunch break. And was mystified by it. I don't know why. I had just finished reading "The Book of Lost Things" by John Connolly and I think his description of the wolfmen in that book really terrified me. I like that girl with the bob too because she looks a little bit drugged and her face makes me laugh.

I love sketching with watercolor, its one of my favorite things. I liked how this one turned out. She looks a bit evil and scandalous.

My favorite sketch I'm posting. I finished this just yesterday and it prompted me to actually make a blog post. I've been looking at a lot of decadent fashion photography for a project I'm thinking about starting. More on that if I actually get off my bum to do it.

Hurrah, I updated. I wanted to say a big congratulations to Sam Bosma and Nancy Muller, two of my favorite people ever, that were featured on Drawn! I'm proud of you guys! <3

That watercolor is the best! Reminds me of all the good parts of Jillian Tamaki's little watercolor doodles and some good solid life drawing. Too awesome, too awesome.

Also, Robert Pattinson? Woof. Dude looks stoned 24/7.
