# I need to make more stamps now
# also I miss that little book. I need a new one
# it was perfect for testing stamps and drawing silly stuff and writing lists and little notes to self

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)

# also aghhhh I hate tumblr's image height limit
# it pains me 2 cut this up like this but. whatcha gonna do

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!!

# still pretty proud of this even though....... I finally found a good ref of her back yesterday..........
# and it's different from how I painted it >80
# so hard to find good refs. why

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)!

# thank u for that swans. it made a big difference for me
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.

# part of the fun of going to the blue ridge mountains was singing fleet foxes everywhere
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)

# one more for now
# god thE NOTES I JUST??? wow how did this happen
# repaints

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.

# took me long enough to get some good pics of this geez
# I wish I'd gotten more pics of the middle. what was I thinking
# can u tell I like stars and forests

quote from Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

the woods are lovely, dark, and deep / but I have promises to keep / and miles to go before I sleep / and miles to go before I sleep

around the holidays last year when I was back home from college, my mom asked me if I could do some chalkboard typography for her on this big, long chalkboard she has. I’d say the board is about 4 feet long?? it was quite a thing to work on and it was a lot of fun (even though the feeling of chalk on my fingers squicks me out a little). I got to choose the quote, with the guidelines of “something having to do with the woods or winter.”
