I LOVE your style! I can't imagine anyone giving any criticism. I thought it would be interesting if you made your characters do some more uplifting things in addition to this set. I just imagined the first drawing dancing in a field or with some balloons or lollipops..

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Holy crap thank you guys so so much. I have been a peeping Tom on Craftster since August, and have been too self conscious to post anything. I appreciate the things you have all said so much-- in the most super cheesy way, completely touched and grateful... Thank you!

Thank you so much! Talk about style-- I can't believe that quilt you made! A. Maz. Ing.

I messed up in the post, the first on is actually water color, ink and white acrylic on paper glued to wood. The third one (nude/yellow bird) is all water color on paper.

For paint I use Liquitex Basics (cheap) and then sometimes Delta, or whatever other brand comes in those little bottles from Michaels (CHEAP!). For water color I know what brand because it's so cheap it just comes in little gray plastic tubes with a sticker of the color. Whatever was the cheapest of the package deal. I use the paint brushes that come in packages that are a couple of dollars for about ten various styles. Nice brushed are pointless for me because I leave them in jars of water for days and ruin them!

Hell yes, a shout out to Liza! I was obsessed with her. One of the most... she was... there just are no words. Did you ever see that creepy old school movie "Whatever happened to Baby Jane?" well what happened was I ended up in a class with her. Her make up was like oil paint and she wore the most incredible fire red wig. She was a Ukrainian who questioned everything in her heavy accent, cried randomly and would write down everything someone said in her own secret short hand symbols.I am in no way making fun of her-- I truly loved being in her presence.

No, no etsy or anything like that. Just my friends and my walls. But god, please, someday someday someday, let me make it as an artist....

I find them all to be awesome! I stared at that first one for a while.... then scrolled down to see the block note you put on the side. What a freaking fantastic addition. It changes the whole concept of the painting, IMHO. Just that little twist took it from a darker piece to a more hopeful work. LOVE it! The work that follows is just as great. I just adore the sort of twisted humour. It's unexpected and snarky and I love it.
