These two watercolor pieces were for our Work's Micro Gallery! It was a lot of fun and I hope to keep doing them. I want to try to do some watercolor environments too, but I've been struggling a little with that stuff lately.

Turnip Turnip Turnip! I find turnips to be a tasty winter veggie! Especially good in a crock pot with a roast :)

Couple of Things...

Two TOTALLY different styles of painting, the second is a study of Sargent's One of my faves since it seems so effortless!

Whenever I try to decide what kind of style I like to pursue, its sort of hard because I like to do so many things :P

Also! I'll be at APE this weekend! Not as an exhibitor, just a spectator, but if you see me feel free to say Hi!

Sargent Study

Just a quick study today :) I Love Sargent!

I've done a few of these recently, at work, I'm doing character renderings, Sargent really is the master of subtly, and I've been learning a lot doing them!

Rites of Spring

Inspired by the Centaurs from the Original Fantasia....Working at Disney has it perks, I was looking around for old Freddie Moore drawings, and Just had to do a couple of pretty centaur girls! It was my fave short from the old Fantasia!

I've been messing around with watercolors, but I've mostly been doing it on the regular bond paper I use to draw on, but soon I think I will bring in a pad of arches to do it on real watercolor paper :P

Oh Gizmo...

Mike likes to joke that our Kitty's spend the day driving around in little cars running little errands...I think that Gizmo is more of a joy rider! so I did this little illustration. For a while I was thinking of doing a childrens book based on Gizmo and Gizmo's adventures, but for now this will do. It reminds me a little of the Richard Scarry aimals that I used to love as a kid too!

Hard and Soft

I posted prints of these two on My ETSY and thought that perhaps I should post them here as well :)

I got inspired when I was bored and started watching videos from this year's Spring shows on Style.com! It's always a sure fire way to get me to do art LOL

I've also started a little blog for my Doll obsession. As weird as it is, I thought maybe I could post a link to it here in case anyone was curious about my other weird hobbies. My boyfriend has had a little bit of a difficult time getting used to all of the dolls and doll parts hanging around the house HA.

Fruity Blythe Blog

It hasnt been updated in a while, but I'll be posting more pics of my custom dolls soon!

I also bought a wood burning kit from Micheal's the other day (If you search Google for Micheal's coupon, you'll find one for 50% off!!) I've got a couple ideas of cool stuff to do with it, but I'm a little afraid of the...hot burning...bit....lol. I'm excited to start, I just gotta get up that courage!

Inspired by a feature at "Apartment Therapy" About Creams...Pinks...and Yellow!

I've always loved painting this white girl..After observing her, I think she reminds me of geishas! I will call them Maiko's from now on. Maiko, are Apprentice Geisha in Japan.

Antler Girl

A doodly doo, exploring a mood and getting back into fashion illustration!

Monday, July 20, 2009


I just started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Hulu and I have to say, I'm totally in love with this show! Some (okay, Most) of the characters can get annoying, but I love the bad guys! Esp. Drusilla and Spike.

Someone told me Spike gets all crappy later in the series but since I've only seen up to season 3, I have to say that he's probably my favorite!

Cloudy Days

A quick study of clouds, using brushes stolen from my super talented coworker, Jeff Turley! Still can't quite get the hang of the pen tilt angle jitter, but it looks cool!And a doodle from a meeting :)

It was a pretty exhausting weekend actually, I forgot to post on my blog that I would be at Anime Expo selling Prints and sketchbooks! It was great fun, I got to meet a lot of people and sell some goods, I think I will do it again next year!

Then on friday, Yuki 7 officially opened at Nucleus! Thanks to everyone who came by to show their support it was a really amazing show and Kevin did such a fantastic job with the character and the book!

Comic con is coming soon too O__O! I can't wait! It will be the first time I have had a hotel room since I was in high school. I hope to meet some awesome people, if anyone has a reccomendation of books to buy let me know :)

More Yuki!

Yuki 7! I'm participating in the show in July at Nucleus! I hope to see some of you there!

So! A little update from me. I got a tiny promotion at work! I'm now a Vis Dev Apprentice as opposed to a Vis Dev Trainee, it's pretty exciting and I've got new mentors and I'm starting to work on stuff that will really be in the movie!

It's June already! I cant believe its already summer...I suppose the next question should be "When can I go to the beach?"

Yuki and Darkstalkers

I recently had a great opportunity to do some art for the awesomely talented Kevin Dart's Yuki 7 book!

Here's the peice I did, hopefully I will have a few more for the Nucleus show

I heard about Udon doing a Tribute book for Darkstalkers, and I felt like doing a piece, I never got around to finishing it, so I never sent it in. :P

Anyone who knows me knows I love my cats, I thought it could be fun to do a childrens book, a sort of buddy comedy starring the two of them, Gizmo who is spunky and happy and Boots who is fat and angry. :)

Browsing my old posts, I noticed that I dont post much here other than characters, I think most people who read my blog probably think that I do characters at work too, but actually I spend most of my time doing environments. I should probably start doing more location stuff in my free time as well so I can show them on my blog!

Happy Valentines day!

Posion Ivy

I always loved Redheads! Theyre so pretty and suductive, in a uniquely exotic way :)

Totally Random, but I saw this guy at my local whole foods and thought it was pretty funny, we're all predisposed to see faces in things and this guy was totally a character when I looked at him!

More Nerd Stuff!

More Nerd Stuff! These have been pretty fun recently, I might try to do a couple more, maybe Batgirl and Poison Ivy.

I also got a pretty cool opportunity that most artists don't get. My dad flies and owns a few planes, recently he acquired one from WWII Called Nanchang Nancy, Apparently the Chinese made some planes for America during that time, and they were very good fighter planes. It's a little 2 seater war plane with a funny little pinup girl painted on the side of it. He asked if I wanted to paint a new one for him (he's always been very supportive of my art) So I'm gonna do it! I've got to do some research on what type of paint to buy, but it should be really exciting! I'll post up some sketches later this week perhaps. The one on the plane now is a chinese girl in a pseudo-mao communist outfit, she seems a little bored, so I'll try to remedy that :)

Wonder Woman!

I've always been a real big nerd at heart, and the other day I thought about how fun it would be to illustrate some classic DC girls. I always sort of liked how Iconic they were compared to Marvel ;) And here is the most iconic of them all, Wonder Woman!

Friday, January 09, 2009


When I was a kid, I loovveedd Mermaids, I blame mostly the movie "The Little Mermaid" but they were one of the few things I could draw. When I was in day care other little kids would ask me to draw them mermaids and request hair color and tail color. I thought it would be fun to revisit those memories.

Also! I've got an Etsy Store now!

Go browse around for Prints! I hope to get more stuff in there sooner or later, but for now, just a couple of prints.

I hope you all had a great new years!
