princess gets he man & a kiss.

Here's the second part to my Princess Erica graffiti illustrations. If only my drawings could come to life. Well. . . maybe not all my illustrations, that'd be a bit scary, but i definitely wouldn't mind being a Princess w/ a giant flying panda that I can ride all the way back to Sarasota just so i can see my boyfriend & get a kiss. How awesome does that sound??? super awesome if you ask me. :3

Goals, Graffiti, & ohmyGOD i love my dad's bbq steak!

With the end of the spring '10 semester, I've been left with a couple closing thoughts to the school year which are as followed:
  • i really need to get my shit together & throw together my resume & portfolio 'cus i need a new job pronto. working as mickey mouse's slave inside the magic kingdom is no longer as fun as it was 3 years ago when i was young & naive & didn't know any better. disneyworld is the happiest place on earth, except for its employees. lol.
  • i don't want to go home and stay in kissimmee, fl. all summer long as much as i did last year. more than likely because i have a reason to stay behind in boring old sarasota this year & that reason being my bf, will, for which these next 2 facebook graffiti art was to.
With that said, I also came up with a couple goals for myself this summer which are as
  • keep up & maintain this art blog so that on all my resumes & applications i refer them to this website. looking to post up process work, sketchbooks, and finished pieces up on here for all to see.
  • in order to prepare myself for next semester's computer illustration class, i'm trying to do this Facebook graffiti art a day thing to help me get used to my precious intuos 3 wacom tablet and to get used to rendering things digitally. :> which i guess explains the purpose of these 2 images up above. it's fun, easy, fast, and at the same time i'm getting more used to making simple computer illustrations. :D yay! multi-tasking skills GO!
  • redesign my identity package & print out some self-promotion post cards to mail to some small publishing companies & greeting card companies like recycledpapergreeting, hallmark, carlton greeting cards, etc. :>
  • start my new series of illustrations based on the theme 'catch me if i fall'. sort of like when a boyfriend says to his girlfriend, "baby, don't worry, i won't let you fall" sort of thing, but i'll be experimenting with different interpretations.
  • start my own spin on tarot cards, faeries & angels & wings style. ;] got the idea from my Intro to GiC teacher, Taft. he thought some of the illustrations i was doing on my own free time would be fitting in a deck of tarot cards, so i set on starting/possibly finishing my own set to be printed & sold on etsy.com maybe? or is that too ambitious for me? ;] we'll see how ambitious i feel in the coming months. wish me luck.
finally, i'll end this first post of my revamped art blog with this statement:
I'm at least glad to be back home, if only for my dearest Daddy's home-cooked BBQ steak!! mm mm GOOD!
