drawing people at twenty-two.

mock up i did for a kids book today. 

Guys I need your help! Now that I’m not heading to California for school, I need to get a job. I would love to make art for a living, but so far it’s not looking good. ): If you know anyone who needs illustrations done or anything art related I would be forever grateful if you showed them my website. Thinking about waitressing again makes me want to cry.

dear universe- please let me get into my dream art school, so i can get away from this white trash life.

this got so many notes and i didn’t even get in.

I can’t stop watching my rejected sketchbook video and getting upset. I remember how happy I was filming it. It was thanksgiving and I was about to eat a celebratory feast with my family. I remember filming it and being so proud of myself.

Ugh. I really gotta stop torturing myself. ahahah. :/

caricature for my friend erika. I had a lot of fun with this one. your purchase will go towards some desperately needed new pens ahahah. thanks girl!

Those days you wake up really hoping the day before was just a bad dream. Day 1 here we go. 282 days until next submission.

WELP. REJECTED. It was a long wait, a lot of tears, but at least it’s over- for now. CALARTS: you don’t know whats coming your way next year. I am going to get in- even if it takes me until I am 60 years old for you to want me.

"The only thing in life achieved without effort is failure."

waiting for my CALARTS decision has been way too similar to the five stages of grief.

1. Denial/Isolation

2. Anger

3. Bargaining

4. Depression

I just hope I make it to  number 5: ACCEPTANCE

ahahahahah. i am losing it.

drew bobby last night during figure drawing.

im going to pretend i am on spring break like calarts until i hear from them.

sadly the weather here isnt as “spring-y”, so i will be sporting this not-so-festive turtleneck. -__-

good luck to everyone waiting with me!
