[listening to "when will i see you smile again" by bell biv devoe]
recently found out that ComiXpress.com - the company we usually print with for small runs of our mini books - has closed its doors forever. that leaves us with quite the predicament going into San Diego Comic Con. i've been avoiding the issue for like a week, mostly because when i get too stressed i shut down. probably not the best thing to do, but it happens. =/ anyways, i've got lots of emails and researching to do. regardless, we WILL be ready for comic con one way or another. =D
i forgot to post the Sailor Octopus art on here. it's actually a sketchcard commission for a great repeat client that gives me so much freedom on what i draw. he really spoils me with that. and since i've been itchin to draw tentacles lately i knew i wanted to incorporate that in here somehow. then it so happened that the week i drew this, my Girls Drawin Girls group blog had a sailor theme. so i incorporated the two and that's what i came up with. you can view my GDG post of this on here - http://girlsdrawingirls.blogspot.com/2013/05/sailor-gal.html.
the one below that is for this past week's GDG blog theme of cat ears. i was looking up google images of cat ears and a random photo of this girl popped up towards the bottom and she had this floppy hat with cat ears on it. i thought it was just too cute and i felt like sketching it. the drawing doesn't look like her so much, i just really liked her big glasses and floppy hat. it was drawn in my sketchbook with my pink and purple colored pencils. the bluish gradient was just added in photoshop. just cuz. =) you can view the GDG post of this here - http://girlsdrawingirls.blogspot.com/2013/06/floppy-cat-ears.html.
