I'm doing things

See! I'm so productive. This is a painting of the house I am going to stay with Aaron in Cetona, Italy this June. The house belongs to my dad's business partner and his wife. My Dad commissioned me to paint it for them as a gift. My parents stayed there for several days last month.

Painting this house has made me excited about our trip. I have big plans to gorge myself on pasta and baguettes for 18 days straight. And draw. I am going to draw a billion Mediterranean buildings and Mediterranean old people. Itinerary is: Nice, Cinque Terre, Florence, Cetona, Rome. We leave in about a month.

I have one paper left to write before the semester ends. That will be painful, but I'm just going to ignore it until next weekend and continue to sit here on the Internet listening to the mountain goats and planning art projects.


I hate it when roomates invite a million people over who take up the whole kitchen so that I can't make pasta. booo.

Here's a comic. It's a little blurry, but if you click on it all will come clear.

sometimes I drop off the face of the earth

But don't worry I still make pictures, I just don't post them... until now.

I've been really into huge loose ink drawings as of late. These two are my most recent. The orchid is part of my final project for drawing II at the community college. I'm spray painting patterns onto Masonite and then drawing over them in ink. I did the oil pastel at a Palette & Chisel open studio back in January. It won best in show at the St. John's student art show in February. And the charcoal with the teapot is from the fall.

It'd be nice If I posted more often. bah. I've got a new comic as well, but it didn't fit in this post. Hopefully I'll remember to post it later.
