Mane

Mane

Word: Mane
Definition: Head of hair
Synonyms: hair, strand, crown, ridge

My friends are amazing. No, they really are!
Sarah M in particular, is probably the most Diva I have ever seen, but the one thing I love about this diva; she knows how to look good for photos!

Just recently I went on a “hair photo-shoot” with this girl, and in all honesty it was more of a “Sarah photo-shoot.” I tried really hard to focus on the long mane she had going on (extensions), but I just couldn’t help but adore how natural she was in front of a camera. This made my job infinitely easier and the photos that sprung from it all are some of my favorites.

So I really hope you all have friends who not only are naturals in front of a camera, but are fun to go on little adventures with. Don’t be afraid to ask your friends to take photos of you or vice versa. You really don’t know how amazing they will turn out until you try.

Diva or not, I think I see a lot of myself in this young 20 year old who asked for a simple (yet lovely) shoot..

Thanks for being amazing Sarah!

It’s been a little while since I dabbled in something I call Multimedia Digital Art. What that means is, I’ve clustered together a different brush to create an image of something real. It’s like mixing paints or something along those lines. However, instead of paints and such, I used brushes that represent a different image. Of course the background layer is my own mixture of color as a base, but you get the gist. I’ve fooled around with different types of effects as well, so this is new and exciting after so many years of doing the same thing over and over again.

I do hope you enjoy the few I have thus far.

Check out my Facebook website if you’d like to see more of these!
Come by the shop as well (in the navigation bar, click Shop) to purchase the image on a variety of house hold items, such as pillow shames, clocks, mugs, and other fine things!

Thanks so much for your support you guys! It’s certainly what keeps the projects going and sharing more frequent!

I wont apologize for the lateness of this post. However I will celebrate that things are now back on track; well sort of!

For the past few months, it’s been a ride that I’d not seen coming. After some misadventures in 2016, the new year seemed a bit more promising. It’s been non-stop; go, go, go, and make sure you take a breather somewhere kind of year. Heartbreak didn’t slow me down, or stop me. Instead if freed me from one less priority to make way for other fabulous things.

What fabulous things? Well, I’ve been at the local market Since January 7th (2017), and missing only-maybe a whopping 3 or 4 days in the month (it’s only a few Saturdays considering the rest of the week it’s not open). The things I sell there rang anything from original paintings, hand colored prints, and jars full of (not so real) pixie dust for all audiences.

It’s been a wonderful kick to the new year and I wont be stopping there. I just (right before this post), officially opened my Etsy.com shop (check it out here). My relatively new images were also posted on my Facebook Fanpage (again, look here).

Yet so much still needs to be done. For now, here’s what I got for you lovely creatures!

Thanks so much for the support you’ve all given me! It paves a way for bigger and better things. I hope the artist in you try’s it’s hand at making it a life career! If not, well that’s okay too! Just enjoy the things you love and whatever makes you happy at the end of the day!

Cheers!

Love – What you do

Love – What you do

Word: Love
Definition: to adorn
Synonyms: admire, adore

I love what I do. I think about it when I wake up in the morning, and I think about it when I sleep at night. One day, and I keep telling myself this, I will have my own office where there will be a couch and I’ll be working late hours so it’s significant to have one. I’ll need a place to crash for a few hours and then get back right into working.

Right now, I honestly am doing nothing but practicing work for people who have some create ideas and concepts of characters. I bring them to life and truly do I love doing it! I can create characters on my own but when people come to me, with their idea, I smile and graciously accept the challenge. These characters have depth and I love bringing them to light.

Seriously, I will enjoy doing this for the rest of my life. I hope to wake up and get straight to working on artworks for clients, and in the evening, if I have time, I’ll take up a part-time for some extra cash.

Here’s some advice from Sister Mary Clarence (Sister Act) played by Whoopie Goldberg; “If all you can do is think about singing when you go to bed at night, and when you wake up in the morning, then you should sing.”

I’m not joking! You guys, wake up and pay attention!
