I got my hands on two commissions from my etsy. One for a Pan and one for a mermaid. Neither are something I'd think of doing right off so it was kind of nice. However, the dude wanted me to paint and ink them, nothing digital. That thew me for a loop, I haven't painted in a while.

Because I was a little shaky I've promised myself to do a little more practice. So I did a quick doodle last night and did some practice painting.

Hopefully I get better pretty soon.

So here we are, in the car again

I've been in Indianapolis now for about a week and a half. I've ventured out on my own to the scary land of the post office and grocery store. I nearly died.

Not really, but my car smells like wet cabbage now because we hauled my goldfish in the seat of my car behind the truck we rented. Apparently it spilled a bit. Seriously though, just like slightly cooked cabbage, I'm not even kidding.

I'm not getting into the swing of things, I got a commission for two pieces I'm nearly done with. A Pan and a mermaid, just ink and a quick painting respectively. It's kind of blowing my mind because I haven't actually done ink or paint in quite a while. Apparently I've become more patient because I haven't thrown the painting out the window yet. Last year that baby would have been compost by now.

Here's a doodle turned kind of neato from tonight. We can't afford cable so I'm catching up on Big Love and doodling. Best kind of combo. We were without internet for the first week or so. I nearly died. You have no idea how many wireless routers I tried to admin/admin my ass into.

I'm not sure if you knew or not, but B is for Bongo.

But can they tell me the lotto numbers?

It's March! I'm moving in two weeks, that's pretty scary. I technically started packing, but I only have a box filled with 23 garden gnomes, a cement Virgin Mary, and a Bust of Spock that doubles as a decanter. I wish I was kidding, but I bet you wish you were as awesome as the contents of that box.

I decided that I should stay up all night in order to reset my sleep schedule, for the past few months I've accidentally been going to sleep at about 6am. Night shifts do goofy things to me and I should probably return to the land of the living and conscious. To occupy my time I finished a set of fortune teller ladies I have been working on off and on. They used to have about five times as many colors and more detail but I just don't think I'm good at those type of things. I find it more fun to pick an extremely small amount of colors and go to work figuring out how to make it work.
