..so I thought I'd give some more a try. Lately I've been really into looking at different ball-jointed dolls & I think they're really cool, so they inspired me to make a few cards. Two of them have cutouts like the ones I've made before, & for the other two I filled the frame with hair... just because I love hair in the least creepy way possible, lol. I think you can probably tell when you look at some of my other work as well.
Anyway, these are all inktense pencils on acrylic paper. I like the inktense because they're easy to use & i'm just not up for getting all of my paints out & setting everything up... this way I can still achieve the look I like.

They're actually in the reverse order of the order I did them in, so the bottom one was first & the top was last. I'm planning on buying some more inktense pencils because I only have 12 right now so I'm a little limited. Hope you enjoy!
Hi guys, here are my latest two cards. My boss really liked the fish cards I made with the inktense pencils she gave me, so she gave me this metallic gold paper to try some stuff out on. It's a little difficult to paint on but I like it. I've made these two cards so far with acrylic paint:
& some deets
I tried to get some different angles to convey the texture/sheen of the paper
Hi everyone! My boss is more like a mom to me & buys me presents sometimes, so recently she bought me a set of inktense pencils. Neither of us had ever used them before, but one of her student assistants uses them frequently and highly recommended them. For anyone who hasn't used them before either, you can use them like you would watercolor pencils- they're made from watersoluble ink & are really vibrant. You can either leave them as they are or use water with them to drag the colors around & paint with them. Last night I decided to try them out & I really like them! I made a few more of those fish cards using those pencils & water.
Hi everyone! I'm back with another painting. I've been trying to use my time productively since graduation. I've put a website together with some of my work it doesn't have a whole lot on it yet, buuuut i'm trying to make it look nice and (relatively) ~professional~ by only putting what I reeeally think should go there. I haven't gone through my older work yet, so there are only the latest projects up there. I still have to post my resume & things like that, but there's an exhibitions list if you're curious.
hi everyone! hope you're all well. these paintings are from my undergrad thesis show. i painted north korean propaganda posters, each one dealing with an different aspect of north korean life. they do exactly the opposite of what actual propaganda does- they show things as they are. yanno, it's really strange.. when i started these, it was because people knew very little about north korea and the situation. by the time i finished them, though, there was something about north korea on the news every single day. anyway. all the paintings are acrylic, at about 36in x 48in (i think. i don't have the measurements with me, sorry!)
i took a photo of what everything looked like hung up!
One of my little portraits! Not quite as small as the ATCs I've been doing, but not much bigger. The background layer is 3.5" x 4.75", & the fish layer is 4.75" across. It's about .5" above the background.
