Over the past week, Chris and I have been working diligently on Sharpie-ing the crap out of these outfits! We went out with a couple friends last night to a Party and then went dancing. We were ready for noone in the world to know who we were and were super excited that the people that did recognize us were like


And then everyone else just thought Chris was Vanilla Ice - and that I was some weird tagalong strange short blonde girl version or something. Confusing for the rest of the world, really.

It was a pretty awesome night and it was nice and warm wearing full sweat suits in the 39 degree weather! It was totally worth it!
For anyone who doesn't know who we went as, here's a bonus video for you. So FRESH!

Rock Band 3 & We're on TV

We're on TV this week on the DIY network! We did a shoot for a new show called "I hate my kitchen" and they've titled out show "Wild Side". HA! If you want to catch me and Chris being goofy on TV, it's on a couple times tomorrow (the 27th, and one more time in the early morning on the 30th!) We're hoping some awesome person records it for us. We don't have cable, and are really hoping for it to show up online!

Also - we got Rock Band 3 and made some characters tonight. Here we are - Plus, guess who leads up our fake band? Sweet Sweet Ryan Michlitch. This one's for you, buddy.
Look at that bad motha...

More Kitties



Adam is over here right now working on his new website!
While that is going on, all the cats are running about and accosting us. I had some fantastic cherry apple crisp and we're waiting for some dominoes to show up!
All this and I did a little more on this painting of Oliver.

He keeps quoting the olsen twins "i want pizza" and it is driving me nuts.

The last time he came over he repeated the whole "flea market montgomery mini mall" sensation... I'd rather have that, I think.

Baby Big Head



I was messing around with painter tonight while we were watching the office on netflix.
I was inspired by all the 60s-70s stationery I got in the mail as well as all this talk about painter lately. I drew a piece of my cat Oliver. Maybe I'll go back and make more sprigs of stuff around him so there isn't just one weird leafy thing shooting out of his head! Or add some whiskers and fix the rest of him...

Also - His head is not this big in real life.

Another little bit


Here's another tiny bit - a little more progress, but not much.
I was working with some weird stuff in this one, so maybe I'll go back in and fix it up!

Picking away at it -


Here's a tiny bit of progress on this mushroom painting - I am messing with the mushrooms on the lower right - not much, but ever so slightly.
I'll get there!

More soon!

A couple weeks ago I started this painting based on some mushrooms I had seen in a fantastic gouache book I purchased in Iceland.

Although my original intention was to bust out the acrylics with this one, I actually might digitally paint it.
Here are the preliminary sketches and some really super fast color studies in photoshop.
I might go into painter and paint this one and see what happens.


black and white value study

super dark & quick color study #1

We'll see how it goes!

EDIT: Just for kicks I'm going to post progress under this entry as well -
Here's the next small bit:


Here's another one.



Here's a sketch from last week - I made it while hanging out with Francesca at infinitea.
It seems that this year has been so chock-full of adventure that I have all but forgotten to keep up my personal work.

These days I'm sitting around dreaming of making a small perfect bound book with Chris about our trip to Iceland. We took a million and one photos of the crazy things we saw - and I've even gone and purchased a book on icelandic sagas. Just for the purpose of getting more into it.

It's such a dreamy - weird place, that I can't help but wish I could go back.
Maybe when this personal book-project is underway, I'll feel like I'm back there again.
