this french safe sex ad is probably the best thing i've seen in a while: AIDES 2006 AIDS awareness ad - YouTube

i love that it's a really excellent short film on top of creating awareness. the straight version is good too, but predictably boring, heh.

i am drawing despite not really being in the mood to, but i think i'm powering through my blahs. the last couple of days i've been mainly focusing on my diet and vamping up my exercise routine. been working out a LOT...for me, and i feel great. trying out all kinds of new shit like an exercise ball and pilates, and doing more reps with my weights. i thought maybe i needed to get heavier weights since the ones i have have gotten pretty easy, but i guess it's not really about the weight, but how many reps you do. i used to feel bad about being a bigger girl, and that i was never going to be a delicate-framed, petite and lovely girl like most other girls seem to be. but i think seeing how strong i'm getting is helping me power through that. i'll always be big, but i'm fucking strong. fuck being bat girl, fuck being super girl, fuck being kitty pryde. i'm a fucking power girl, a fucking cheetarah, a fucking she hulk!

anyways...i don't have a lot to show for myself, just a bunch of in-the-works type stuff, so here's some old sketches i never posted anywhere; Posie and Erazulie from My Darling Zombie, and the random frohawk girl.

I hope someday I will be good at drawing dinosaurs!

Fuss. trying to get the hang of drawing these characters, maybe change them up a little bit. looking at my last drawings all lined up, i realized somewhere along the line i veered off into "huge thigh/hugh hips" territory, haha. gotta work on myself.

allergic to myself

sex...oh yes.

i'm thinking now it will probably be necessary to have some smuttiness going on in dinogeddon to flesh out the characters more, forget what i want haha. for instance, i see ronnie as being incredibly flippant when it comes to sex; i see her viewing it as an itch to be scratched and little more than that. i also see her as ridiculously dominate and stubborn, wanting everything on HER terms, so this has led me to thinking of some pretty funny sex scenes involving ronnie frightening unsuspecting horny guys she manages to lure over, whereas other guys that know the score stay well away from her, hahaha. i'm also interested in exploring sex in a dinosaur-infested, post-apocalyptic world....although throughout history, has it ever really been that different?

and i need to draw the guy gang because i really want to draw some boy sex in there too haha. i'm probably going to alienate absolutely everyone with this comic, except perverts like me XD


look at my pony cake!!!

haha i made this today for my late birthday party! i'm kinda bummed the frosting's so lumpy (how do people make it so smooth??) but seeing as it's my first time dabbling in cake art, i'm just happy that you can sort of tell it's a pony!

it's supposed to be fizzy! she's my favorite pony! :D I love her colors so much, and that she's a unicorn and has sparkly eyes! i've always wanted to dye my hair to match hers, with the dark turquoise green, dark pink, light pink and white hahaha!

omg, finally done with my first cast line up. did this take me long enough or what??

The main girl gang, the T-Wrecks! (yes I changed the name, haha)
From L to R:
Ronnie Riot, née Veronica Torres
Jett, née Lilac Stream
Lupe, née Guadalupe Peligro
Fuss, née Constance Audley
Shock, née Shakti  Delhi
and I haven't named the last girl at all. :( I came up with a few names, but none of them really seem to fit her. hmmmmm. So if there are any suggestions, I'm happy to hear them! Actually, I'm happy to hear any suggestions regarding the characters' designs. I'm pretty happy with them, but I'm sure I'll be tweaking them over time. I know they don't really fit together all nicely because i drew them at pretty different times and using different methods...but hopefully you get the idea.

Now only two more gangs to go....sigh.

I'm so obsessed with ponies right now, more than normal. I think it started because people have been asking me what I want to do for my birthday coming up, and I was trying to decide whether I wanted a dinosaur cake/dinosaur-themed party, or a my little pony cake/ themed party. (yes, i am very immature and still like to have themed birthday parties sometimes!) i did some research online, and found some really fucking awesome dinosaur cakes that seemed easy enough to make, for some reason the my little pony birthday cakes were really compelling to me. I guess because they seem more difficult, and also of course because they're probably my most beloved childhood toy. So...I'm thinking I would like to try building my own MLP birthday cake. I know it'll probably come out a disaster, but I just can't resist the challenge. And store-bought cakes are nasty.>:P

I also got a few new Gen1 ponies, and have been checking out pony lists online to find out when they were released and what their names are, and as a result I've spent several hours looking for ponies I remember having XD And some I wish I'd had.

I also had vague memories of these plastic horses that were more realistic like Breyer horses from the 80's, but they were crazy neon colors and came with clothes you could put them in, and through lots and lots of digging (apparently very few people remember them, haha), I found out they were Fashion Star Fillies!

I have a distinct memory of these things because when I was about five I think, I had my first ballet recital, and at the end all the parents came backstage, and my parents had gotten me one of these horsies as a gift. :) It was this orange one:

I'm not sure what made me want the orange one, since for some reason growing up I was utterly obsessive about the color purple. But later I did get a purple one - with a princess cape and crown! XD

I just find these so interesting because they're so strange. Like, anthropomorphized animals, but they still retain most of their realistic animal qualities to make it seem really strange. There were some really great, crazy gorgeous ones I kick myself now for not getting.

XD so eighties!

I really want this one with the tiger stripes! O_O

and this one with all the crazy colors and the cheetah spots! O3O

Also, this is my FAVE song to dance to in "Just Dance" for the Wii right now: Acceptable in the 80s - YouTube XD

the night calls

random sketches drawn during bad movies

 fan art of Ross Campbell's Shadoweyes :) it was fun taking a break from Dinogeddon stuff

art shoooow part 2

So the Bad Channels art show was last night. It was pretty fun, met a lot of cool people. So many more people turned out than I expected! O_O It got so crowded in the showing area that I got claustrophobic and had to go sit in the hallway most of the night, haha. But all in all, it was a good time. It was sort of inspiring to see my stuff hanging up and having people look at it.

My only real gripe is that we didn't get to see the movie because everyone else decided to go out to the bar at the end of the show instead. I was kinda upset for my friend Mike because he put so much effort into this show and had to pull strings at the theatre and to get the film ready, and everybody just ran out on it. But it didn't seem to bother him too much, so whatever. What's so great about bars?? I don't get it heh.

the pris bladerunner painting kinda made everyone just wanna die, me included, haha.

i really liked that predator one!<3 and my friend stacie did the tank girl one

Mike did a fantastic job on the print! it came out looking way better than i'd expected!

fun with mirrors XP


so i got my first art show under my belt! Fuck yeah.

Nowhere to Hide

woke up before sunrise this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, so i got up to finish this.

I need a laptop so I can draw in bed, heh.

I tried to really push myself to finish this yesterday, but i wussed out. I really need to draw better and faster. Nothing's going to hold me back except my own laziness. really gotta start pushing it to the limit.

Coming close to finishing my cast lineups, i can almost taste it, mmmm....

Oh, I forgot to mention, but finally watched the new Star Trek movie the other night. I'm not even all that into Star Trek and I'm sure some of the stuff went over my head, but man, it was really fucking cool. And I was so psyched Leonard Nimoy was in it!! XD I have such a big, weird crush on him, haha. Young Spock was pretty hot, and i love how big of a dick Kirk was. actually, my favorite characters were probably the more minor ones, like scotty and bones. i can't help it; i love characters that take everything in stride and remain optimistic (like scotty) and also the surly, cynical, but always-comes-through-for-you characters, a la bones. oh, and how cute was Chekov?? And I loved that they let sulu be awesome! and the romulans were sweet too.

pretty much the only thing i wasn't happy with was the stupid, pointless romance between uhura and spock. seriously, wtf?? do writers and directors know how to fit a female main character into a movie without having to make her swooning over one of the other characters? every other character had some cool scene or multiple scenes showcasing their talents and how badass they are, whereas uhura just gets crappy, dewy-eyed romance scenes, and one where she's like "i can hear really, really good!" and their attraction to one another is never really explained in any satisfactory fashion; it's just like boom! THEY'RE IN LOVE! deal with it! bleh. the only way it could be worse is if it did the typical movie thing where it's like "oh, these two hate each other, but wait! through a series of whacky events they realize they dislike each other because they're so similar and now they're in love!" although i guess the kirk/spock dynamic fulfilled that type of relationship, haha.

Sometimes I wonder if something's wrong with me because i hate romance in movies so much. all other girls i've ever seen don't seem to mind it, and some even eat it up. it's not that i hate all romance; i appreciate it if it has something to do with the plot, or if it adds something meaningful to a character. but other than that, i feel like the majority of it is just a bunch of hollywood garbage they just throw into movies because it's part of the formula or something, like throwing in totally pointless, annoying sidekicks. and sometimes it personally offends me as a woman when they throw a crappy romance into a typically male-oriented type of movie, like an action movie or something, like "here you go girls! something for your little minds to focus on while the men watch those boring explosions and fight sequences!" and the female that is the focus of said romance is always ripped straight out of male fantasy, anyway; the scantily-clad, super model-looking young girl who looks like a "bad girl," but deep down is a soft and shy "girl next door" who is unaware of her beauty and sexuality, so therefore the dorky lead (and vicariously all the guys in the audience) have a chance with her.

blah, anyway, sorry, didn't mean to go off on a big rant. but yeah. overall, star trek = movie i like. oh god, and last night the "trouble with tribbles" episode was on tv!! XD

Not Extinct


My laser guns keep getting more and more outlandish and Lost In Space-looking XD
