Pretty Pretty Princess Loki
You ever notice how if family asks you for something, you procrastinate on it FOREVER? That's the case here with "Pretty Pretty Princess". My Grandmother asked me for a painting, since my mom and Aunt have one, and I told her sure. . . well that was Christmas 2 and a half years ago now (I think). The sketch for this sat around for a year before I finally had time off to work on it. Did my first all nighter when I didn't have to in a while to complete it, but I find it amusing.
In other news, I was insane and completely unobservant when my boss suggested I take a class this summer. Even though I read the description it didn't fully register what I got myself into until the first day of class. . . and now I'm kicking myself. Mind you, it's something I know nothing about so it's cool and I like learning new stuff, but seriously, Transportaion design? By the end of the summer, I'll be able to draw cars like a mo-fo, even though I'm not really sure I WANT to. :P
Update!! May 30th, 2008
I got "Pretty Pretty Princess" back from the framer on Tuesday. It turned out pretty decent I think. I tried to frame it so that it would look good with the painting as well as good with my Grandma's stuff. I hope It works out okay. There's just way too much pink going on in this thing for my personal taste, but, as I've said, it's not mine, so it's okay. Besides, it was nice to do something out of hte ordinary for me.
Also, as you can see below, I got my birthday presnts early! This is Nico, my new little girl. We got her from the Burbank Animal Shelter almost two weeks ago now. We were shocked at how quickly she and Loki hit it off. We kept them separated for about three days (it was supposed to be a week, but Carlos kept "accidentally" leaving the bathroom door open) before they met. Loki had a kitty crush immediately, and to our great surprise, Nico reciprocated the crush, and now we see cuddling kitties everywhere in the house.
The cuddling is enough to make me puke sometimes. Not to mention, I'm a tiny bit jealous cause Loki doesn't talk to me anymore and is "too cool" to let me snuggle with him. My little man is growing up!
