When I started this blog, I very much so wanted to write in all lower-case letters like my all-time food idol Molly Yeh, but I felt that my love of sarcasm and italics would be slightly diluted, so here I am, in full punctuation.
Past sketch highlights:
There’s this thing I do called “sketchaday,” where I sketch for a max of 30-45 minutes and see what I can get done. A couple of recent ones from this year:
Yes, they’re mostly faces. I’m currently working on a project called 1000 F***ing Heads (not my name), that has been slowly filling up. More on that later.
And lastly, this creation:
(It’s a birthday card.)
My best friend and I used to have this running joke — back when I still used DeviantArt (it’s probably still there somewhere, floating in the internet from when I started in middle school) and other monikers, that I would never be able to finish my free artwork requests. Well, we were right. All Jehna wanted was a skunk drawing (she claimed this, sadly, also in middle school where she inadvertently discovered that skunk weed had the same initials as my name), which took me forever and a half. What I didn’t tell her, and what I really wanted to do, was to draw a giant, photorealistic skunk statue that was both majestic and intimidating, but every time I went to draw this skunk, it looked like less skunk and more blob. So I kept it off for multiple Christmases and birthdays (years) until this year, when I realized that she probably didn’t care about if the skunk was photorealistic.
If you’re wondering,what in the world?– the multiple skunks are ones I drew every year, but ultimately was unsatisfied with. The one I drew in 2012 may be my favourite, as I detailed a quarter of NYC’s skyline, before I gave up. Art. ‘Tis hard.
