Raining like what

Finally I think the whole cat health issues thing is over. I'm thankful because I am tired of digging into my fig nuton funds for poop-cat medications.

While I wasn't freaking out about the state of my cat's butt, I tried out some new coloring techniques to make things a tad bit more interesting. I used a drawing from my sketchbook of Andrew Bird and figured it would be a good fit for an experiment. I kind of dig it, but I need to see how else I can push it.

I also got a painting done this weekend. I need to get a decent scanner to actually show it off nicely. My photos of it kind of look a little gross. It felt good to paint again though, I'll have to do it more.

Woah, dude

I made Dad an iPad seeing as there is no way in holy butts I can afford one for Father's Day. It was pretty sweet but I didn't think about taking a photo of it until I was walking out of the post office. Oops. Hopefully it gets there safe and sound so he can take a picture of it for me.

I keep saying "dude" at work, every time it slips out I feel like a rebel.

Here, have this:

New City cover

Hey! If you're in the Chicago area check out the cover I did for this week's Newcity Magazine. It's out today (June 10) and free! So grab a handful and throw them at people.*

Show me some photos if you find one, it would be awfully rad of you.

*not responsible if you throw things at others, however hilarious it may be.

Pistols at Dawn

If you follow a few of my friends from school, you should know that we're all participating in Drawgasmic! Everyone else seems to have sent their stuff in and showed what they made for it, so I might as well too. If you're interested, I'm 99% sure they're till taking applications. it looks like it should be pretty rad. I'm even considering driving the many hours just to go. Possible road trip, hell yes.

Drawgasmic Art Exhibition - The Art, Illustration, and Design Compendium

Here is what I made, I call it "Pistols at Dawn"

I would stop drawing siamese twins because I do it a lot, but they are waaaaay too much fun.

Also I put my "Put Another One On" piece up for sale. I dig him lots.

I have another few actual paintings to show, but this post is far too image heavy as it is. I'll save them for later.
