Super Strange Night.

So - today was insane. Besides teaching my students patterns, talking about hand-type and trend boards I had a ton of work to do... AND I went out to dinner tonight with Gary Baseman.

He's in town for a lecture tomorrow at MCAD, which is awesome! He's super nice and is really passionate about his work. It was really nice talking with him!

Besides all that, I got a call from Atom tonight asking if I wanted to go shoot guns with him tomorrow for his birthday (Which is awesome) - and I snuck a little painter-painting in tonight for the sake of brushing up before class tomorrow.
I have to tell you, I've been so swamped with everything lately that it's SO nice just to put my headphones on for a second, put the jams on and paint something for 2 hours.

So here you have it - late night practice for the sake of personal art. ;)
No, it's not me - it's some other girl with headphones on.
Maybe I'll go back and fix a couple things in here some day ( probably not ) - I'm not thrilled with her headphones because you can tell I didn't use any reference because I was too lazy to take mine off my head to look, and It's getting too late for me to continue tonight. Maybe some other day!

Also I've had the same three songs on repeat all night. That's how I do. - time to dream the new Britney album all night.

ARM HAIR FTW!

Dance Central Birthday Time!

Oh man, today was awesome!
Besides having a birthday, I got to decorate cakes, hang out with my very best friends, eat Chris & Robs hotdogs, AAAANNNNDDD play Dance Central!

Chris bought me a kinect for my birthday AND dance central and he and I and a bunch of great friends danced around like crazies all night! I am super surprised at how challenging it is! It was awesome! At a couple points during the night, we had three people dancing away for each song. SO FUN.

So, I felt like making another post and why not - I had an awesome time thanks to all of my amazing friends tonight. Party time! Excellent!

Friday Night Challenge - Another Sleeping Girl

It's now technically Saturday. Also, my birthday!
I got home from teaching my last class before spring break tonight and had quite a few things to catch up on. I made some calls, did a little bit of editing of the ARTCRANK poster image that we're working on for the show in April, and then ran some errands.

It felt like some personal art was in order, so I busted out some quick painter action (Again) and made some sleepy art.

I am not sure what my deal is (possibly living vicariously through my subject matter?) with the sleeping girls lately, but it seems comforting.
I am looking forward to a slower paced spring break and a nap or two.

Here is a sketch of my two weird dogs.
They both really look like that.
