Sunday in the Studio: Tattoo Nonsense!

For some reason I woke up at 5:30 this morning. Since I hadn't really been getting much of anything done due to over sleeping (we're talking 12 hours minimum a day for the past few weeks) I decided to take it as a sign to get my sorry patoot outta bed and get to work! So I finished cranking these bad boys out instead of needlessly dreaming more weird dreams.

I abuse my cups and fill them with water to clean my brushes in.

Heck Yeah Hand Lettering!

This crow almost destroyed me. I can't paint with black to save my life to begin with, and I just kept pulling up every layer that I put down until I just set it aside and wept on the inside. I finished working on my other paintings before going back to it. And instead of painting, I went back in with my Microns and redid all those lines which made EVERYTHING better! They got so washed out and it made me so sad, but when they were once again highly visible I was able to get a hold of myself and continue on with everything!

Alas, I probably won't have any dress updates for a little bit, our home is full of guests at the moment (not that I'm complaining, I'm beyond stoked they're finally here!!) and the sewing room has been converted into a guest room. So unless I can convince my mother to let me haul her sewing machine into my room, I'll just impatiently wait and come up with mew patterns itching to test them out!



  1. The crow looks absolutely amazing, I love these! I just came across your blog, and you are super cute!


  2. I love the drawing of the girl! You have a unique style, I like it.
