More Tiny Portraits!


i’d like to introduce two new mini portraits.

one of a fish (as always) and another of a sea pig!

for some unusual reason i’ve been really into making teeny tiny acrylic portraits of civilized animals. maybe its because i received a nice lot of paints a few weeks back from a friend. i guess it’s a “when life gives you lemons….” thing. 🙂 (thanks javi!).

thanks for clicking friends!

Almost Summer!


i am officially almost graduated, there is still the matter of tying the loose ends (such as walking around with a fancy robe and getting it in writing…), but still, i have a Bachelors of Fine Arts!

now what??? (;° 0°)

am i more of an “artist”? maybe less of an “artist”?

who knows?

i do know that now i have to go out there and put my skills and talents to use. i’ll be honest, it’s hard not having deadlines. the body still wakes up at 5:30 a.m., trying to catch the 6:47 express to chicago. there is a sudden feeling of purposelessness, a craving for netflix and buzzfeed lists of pop culture references, and a reluctance to clear of my mod podge crusted desk (and it doesn’t help that it’s been overcast these past few days…)

floating in space.

to be honest, stuff like this is expected. i’ve heard of others having similar symptoms or worst. would it silly to imagine it wouldn’t happen to me? then again, it’s not as bad as it could be! i am posting on my blog, there are notebooks filled with ideas waiting to be executed. it is spring and there is pollen and rebirth in the air. 🙂

while i try to figure this career thing out more thoroughly, heres a lovely picture of a fish i made you guys as well as as a new graphic design gallery (a work in progress) featuring some of my favorite work i did for the aurora public library.
