uploading sketches @ 3 AM again because i’m super lame like that. i love being messy with my colored pencils. for some reason, my fashion inspirations are worn by monster girls. these seven have been my frequent models, so i figured i’d name them. 

i finally got to scanning!

NEW SKETCHBOOK BLOG SOON!
my blogspot account gets significantly less traffic compared to my other blogs, so here it is. there’s nothing uploaded yet except this quickie doodle. i’m gonna keep it “drawings only”. occasionally, i’ll have links to the art blog. you’ll see that i got even lazier with the blog layout. hopefully, i can whip up something better… someday. 

i’m gonna make it work.

i’m not sure whether to laugh or roll my eyes. when you go to art school or take an art history course, you learn how much blood, sweat, and tears artists put in their work to reach that point where a simple drawing is worth thousands—even millions! understandably, these are typical reactions of otherwise uninterested non-artists. while their refusal to look past the random scribbles and colors can be frustrating at times, it’s also cringe worthy that there are elitist artists, collectors, critics and historians look down on them like silly uneducated bigots.
