I’ve wanted to make this joke for so long

I made this rubber stamp awhile back (march-ish) as a birthday present for my buddy owligator!!

wish I had taken a few photos of the actual stamp itself, but at least I got a good impression off of the stamp (which I usually…. forget to do……..)

A few stamps I made last schoolyear for fun, for my friend Hannah (digging-in-detrital-art )! She also took most of these photos/let me use her camera to take a couple photos myself (thank you!! they look so nice!!!!). The lighting that night was really really pretty, wowee

the stamps are made of rubber and are glued to wooden backings. the all-seeing eye stamp has a glassy coating on the back to make it shiny 8)

a little acrylic painting sketch thing I did awhile back! I reffed from a photo near the beginning of this but I don’t know where that photo is now :’0 

it looks way better in real life and I couldn’t quite get the colors to match the real thing. hopefully this nerd can vouch for me because I sent the original to her!!

after doing repaints of this toothless and this gronkle, I found a little $2 nadder at target and decided to repaint it, too! This one was pretty complicated and took quite awhile to paint, especially because it’s so small. my little brother wants me to tell you all that that’s his hand.

Here’s what she looked like before painting (I got this pic off the internet, mine actually looked worse)!

a few months ago when I was pretty upset, one of my best buds (cortnan) gave me a really good pep talk. One of the things that really stuck with me from our conversation was these words: The first step is getting up. 

I thought they were so important that I decided to draw them out on a sticky note pretty much immediately after she said ‘em, and I’ve kept it by my bed ever since. When I have a hard time waking up in the morning, Swans’ words are there next to my alarm clock. the first step is getting up.

plein air watercolor doodle that I liked, from my journal

I went to the North Carolina and stayed in the Blue Ridge Mountains (!!!) for a family reunion a few weeks ago, and it rained most of the time we were there. the result was this gorgeous mist that cascaded up off and out of the hills. it was so beautiful

(also beautiful was the Nantahalla river! which I got to go whitewater rafting on. that same mist blanketed most of the river and it was like going through a rainforest wowee)

I walk with others in me yearning to get out;
claw at my skin, and gnash their teeth, and shout.
one of them wants only to be someone you’d admire;
one would as soon just throw you on the fire.

after all is said, and after all is done,
god only knows which of them I’ll become

I also found this $5 toothless figurine at target and it was already pretty cute but I went “how can I make this even cuter

here’s what the original toothless figurine looked like, pre-painting (I forgot to take before pics so here’s a picture of it from amazon). I also filled in some gaps in his tail with epoxy putty and sanded his edges a little.
