The Amazing Spider-Man

The amazing over-worked Spider-Man portrait. I got a new brush pack I wanted to work with in Photoshop and Spider-Man/Peter Parker became my first victim. :B I had to force myself to stop and I'll probably go back later and fiddle with him more just for kicks.

<3 I'm a closet Spider-Man fan. At least I think I was in the closet. Maybe everyone knew the whole time?

With love from the little red sketchbook.

Hey! My goal is to post something on here at least every two weeks!! Let's see if I can do it!

Last Saturday when I went to see Megafaun and Bowerbirds at The ArtsCenter. I keep a small sketchbook in my purse most of the time and at the show I started drawing the bands. It was really fun and I think I'll continue doing it in the future. I'll probably have to stand closer to the stage though. o_o;

This is Megafaun; they were wonderful on stage and I'm listening to their CD right now. They were also a lot of fun to draw I think this batch of sketches came out very nicely. I love to draw like this, but as you can tell they lack clarity.

These sketches are of Bowerbirds. They didn't come out as well as I had hoped. Maybe its because the room became crowded and I had a harder time seeing the stage or I was thinking about it too much.

Here are my favorites from the rest of the sketchbook. The first two are doodles of the main character of a story I'm plotting out in my head. Her name is Anatida or Anadtidae and she is the bodyguard to the Vermilion Princess of Tuonela.

I think I'm going crazy

My oh so serious response to an article in the Wall Street Journal about how nuclear power will generate more jobs and is in America's future. You can read it online here.

I was excited to have finally cooked my eggs the way I liked.
