Monday Evening Post

Back on Track!

” life has a funny way of sneaking up on you when you think everything’s okay, and everything’s going right…And ya well life has a funny way of helping you out when you think everything’s gone wrong and everything blows up in your face”

Anyone remember these lyrics? The song is called Ironic, by Alanis Morissette. One of my favorite genre’s of music is alternative rock, and she was one of my favorite artists growing up, and this song really stood out to me. Like it gives me chills, in a weird way, and I’m not sure what to make it of! Anyway, I’ve mentioned it in an earlier post, that I’m preparing my portfolio for the San Diego Comicon. Business has been casual– a few projects here and there, but nothing overwhelming, so I planned to use the next couple of months to focus on learning and creating art to show. “Ironically” since I’ve made this decision, In the course of a week,  I have been called, emailed, received texts from past clients– some of which I have not heard from in years, and new clients– all of them, looking to commission me, for quite ambitions projects. Even as I was writing this post, I got a call. I can’t help but wonder why this happened, all of a sudden, and on the magnitude that it has, shortly after making my decision >_<;

I’ve been on and off the phone, in and out meeting with people for the past couple of days, while maintaining the “three” jobs I have currently, and unfortunately I was in a position where I was unable to publish my Thursday Evening Post. So here we are, on Monday! I still have a ton of things to sort out, and figure out, but I’m back on track, and I have arts to share!

Introducing Nubia, from Katzenworld!

NubiaSketchSo what did Marc Andre have to say about the lovely Nubia??

“Nubia as you gathered is very playful and not so easily seen from the photos NOISY!!! We sometimes jokingly call her Nubzilla the chatterer of peace haha.”

Of all the kitties from Katzenworld, Nubia has to be one of my favorites. I actually played around with a lot of ideas with her! Like drawing her as Godzilla, destroying paper box cutouts, designed to look like a miniature city in comparison to her size, and contemplated how I could draw her being chatty– but I figured the best approach would be the simpler approach, so I  drew her covered in yarn to express her playful nature. Look at her face! She knows no shame in getting into stuff! It is who she is! lol I love drawing her!


Next up, will be Oliver, accompanied by some personal work I’m eager to share 😀

Also I want to share a song I listened to quite a bit while drawing Nubia. It’s just a beat, but it’s happy and light and quite enjoyable. Hope you like it too!

Till next time, Enjoy!
