My poster on!

Working on this summer's new poster design for Dave Matthews Band.  I was looking at DavePosters for inspiration when I came upon my own design!  It was an awesome feeling that one of my customers from the Charlottesville shows last fall had thought enough of it to put it up in this database along all the "legit" posters that I look up to and find so beautiful.  I can't even say how flattered I am.  B and I are going to the Charlotte show and then 5 more from NY to VA this summer.  I've written down the name of the wonderful patron who took the picture and put my poster up on  You better believe, If we run into him he's getting a free summer tour poster!

Here's a link to my inflated ego...

What I'm working on tonight

Waited last minute to work on my most recent drawing again...I had all these detailed plans written out for a series I'm working on for drawing II but I'm throwing them all out the window tonight to free style a little bit and draw my favorite sculpture (like EVER).  I'm sure everyone is familiar with the Pieta by Michelangelo.  One of my many goals is to see this in person.  Well, I'm off to work on this.  I'll make sure to post my little interpretation of it when it's finished.

I knew I wasn't alone.

I was reading an old Playboy interview with Janeane Garofalo tonight and this quote made so much sense to me--I feel just the same.  She is so funny and honest.  

"I have self-loathing in that I am frequently disappointed in myself. I don’t work hard enough, don’t write enough, don’t donate enough to charity, don’t read enough. But I don’t have low self-esteem. I am a confident person. I don’t make bad choices in destructive relationships. I don’t abuse myself in a major way. I just grind my teeth. I have a bite plate, but unfortunately I can’t wear it. It covers the roof of my mouth and I can’t sleep in it. So I’ve wasted a lot of money on it, which causes more self-loathing, which makes me grind my teeth more. I just want to be a better person. I want to be funnier, I want to be smarter, I want to be healthier, I want to be nicer. But self-loathing drives me. I guess it’s a good thing. Better than being arrogant or being content to be a dick."

Brand New Year

Haven't posted anything in a while and I'm regret not taking some pictures through Christmas and posting.  I had a great Christmas and hope everyone else did as well.  I wish I had posted pictures of my tree at the apartment and at my mom's house...they both were beautiful (mostly my mom's though).

For the new year my boyfriend, his brother, and took a quick trip down to Topsail Island for the Keller Williams NYE concert in Wilmington.  I didn't stick around for the show but relaxed at the house instead.  Wish we could have stayed a LOT longer but it was a nice little trip.  A walk on the beach with you're b-friend is the perfect way to start the new year! Take my word for it!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and I hope this new year is wonderful and better than the last.  Christmas is wonderful but there's just something about January--all that hope and renewal.  Follow through with your resolutions, people, and keep yourself inspired all year long.  

Some basic resolutions I've made this year.

Lose some weight


Put my art to work
