So I just won a free seat at Kat Von D's WONDERLAND GALLERY drawing workshop hosted by Kevin Llewellyn and I'm WAY WAY EXCITED. It's this Sunday. Kat Von D will model and they may film for LA INK!!!

 They have a painting workshop on Saturday that I'd LOVE to go to but it's $260 and I have NO money at ALL. I set up a PayPal donation button and if you could seriously donate even $0.10 or $0.50 or $1 I think I could reach enough people that I'd make enough money to be able to go both days.

I feel like such a mooch but I had to seriously ask around especially if it's only like $0.50 a person who donates. 

Thank you so so so much for reading this!!! <3 And feel free to pass this message on!

long time no see [Nov. 8th, 2010|04:22 pm]
How funny - I just looked through my Friends List for the first time in forever . . . looks like a bunch of people are returning after a sort of hiatus, sorta like me. 

Things got waaaaay shitty this summer. Here's photos of me from the hospital, after gaining 20 lbs. I have no idea what I looked like at my lowest weight, but am most definitely morbidly curious.

Hope you like the side boob. Sorry it's on the side of a fucking bird cage.

So apparently I was experiencing actual starvation - my blood work #'s were literally comparable to Auschwitz #'s. That shit makes you CRAZY, by the way. Fucking CRAZY.

Spent my life in bed/on my parents' couch, unable to really walk, from May to late September before getting to a hospital. Crazy times. 

I'm way way way better now. Extraordinarily week, but getting stronger every day.

Trying to figure out when I should go back to school, as I am on medical leave from work and school for now. I want to jump back into life 100%, but I know I'll end up in the hospital again if I do. 

Just painted this for a show that'll be on the 14th. 

If you live in Southern California, check out Rothick Art Haus - the gallery. It's a mile from Disneyland, in Anaheim. Super fucking rad, and my stuff's up there a lot. Also, their Dr. Sketchy's sessions are legit.

Everything's pretty stagnant and lame. Got down to 82 lbs., but now I'm back in the 88 range.

For a dog-themed charity show, proceeds go to this badass no-kill shelter.

Haha it's got it's massive problems but I'm learning not to rush pieces last minute while I'm way sick.

Way way way too close to Kawasaki's style. I need to take a break, back off, and really figure out my own look!

 A lot of people on my Friends List have been having a super rough time lately. 

Shit, guys. Love to you all. Summer's uh-comin'.

Quick Break from the Break [Apr. 25th, 2010|10:19 am]
[music |It Might Get Loud]

I just got busy as all hell? 0 - 60 in 2 seconds flat.

May - I'll be live painting at a show featuring Glenn Arthur! I'm terrified.

June - 1 dog themed piece for Gallery Meltdown's "Mute of Hounds" show [charity show!].

July - 1 to 3 Balinese themed pieces for New Puppy.

November - I need to have 5 [FIIIIIIVE] tiki/rockabilly/custom culture pieces for Rothick Art Haus. Tom Laura is one of the other artists from the show - to give you an idea of the vibe.

December - 1 unicorn themed piece for Rothick Art Haus.

That's 8 - 10 pieces! 

And finally . . . DRUMROLL, por favor.

THANK YOU, Rothick Art Haus.

I have like freaking 30 paintings to do. I want to cry. But also explode with happiness?

This is either going to destroy me - or push me into developing and growing. I need to make sure I don't throw away ANY of these opportunities by turning in half-assed pieces. I'm going to HAVE to break my procrastination habits and pretend I'm actually a hard worker. Maybe I'll hypnotize myself into believing it so much that I'll actually become one. I feel like I need to ask for help - but I don't know who or what to ask. TIME TO FREAAAAAAK OOOOOUT.

P.S. If any of you have cool reference photos/links/resources with cool imagery matching any of the about themed shows, lemme know!

Tiki - rockabilly - pin up?
Dogs - coyotes - wolves?
Balinese dancers - art?
Things you'd like to see in my solo show???
