hey everyone, BIG NEWS! okay not really, but it is exciting. im on the front page of amateur illustrator! check it out. it runs through about 8 or so images, so if it doesnt show up the first time, hit refresh.
so everyone knows i am a complete nerd, but i am also pretty high maintenance and enjoy the finer things in life. ....so i am creating a line of jewelry combining my two favorite things: video games and jewels (mostly necklaces)! it's PERFECT. for me anyways... haha
i made the pacman and his ghost out of sculpy, it's painted/coated with enamel paint, in addition to fresh water pearls.you can't really tell but the ghost is a beautiful deep purple (of course) and pacman is an interference yellow (fancy word for pearlescent).
up next: zelda and alice in wonderland.
oh& school starts monday. so i can kiss my free time goodbye. i was just getting used to it =[
so there is a saying in japan that an octopus represents someone who has a lot do. &i think that really explains a lot about me right now.
this is one of 4 sea shells that i have recently painted, however, you will only see two because i completely hate the other ones.
i have recently been trying desperately hard to work on the projects i've been dying to work on for months, and trying to decide on job opportunities, and trying to get all this done before i go back to school on monday.
i feel like a lot of my blog entries begin with "so it's been awhile"... hahha
well i'm all moved into my mothers now, and my room has definitely been improved since my high school days. i'll post pictures when it's fully complete!
in the mean time... i found some sea shells in the basement and decided to do some much needed painting. i only have two weeks left before school starts back and i haven't done any of the projects i wanted to do.
i'm really excited for the next one. i have a plan! haha but it includes a few things that i do not currently have. i'll give you a spoiler though...it includes ocotpi and time pieces.
meet my good friend jess:
we were besties in high school, and have recently reconnected. she's a pretty amazing girl and a great friend, so me and nick are taking her away to bham for the week when she gets off work today. i'm super excited! we are going to hit all of our favorite thrift and antique stores and all of the usual food stops!
