Mer-MAN! ::coughcough:: Mer-MAN!

Here's a teeny post before The Great Moving Weekend of Doom begins. My work is so fabulously understanding ^_^ Also the above title is a Zoolander reference for all those who haven't seen that movie. Go see it!

Could it be? Did I use TEXT in that sketch?? QUA?!

Le French

Inspired by the Amelie soundtrack, I drew some frenchy-flapper-esq sketches.

Maybe the caption for this one should be "when the hell am I getting married??" Ooooh how true. >.<;;

I say poe-tay-toe, you say poe-tah-toe

Here are a few photos of a quick sweater-fixup I did in the last hour or so. Took one of Jason's unused rather nice looking soft sweaters and shaved it down to my size!

Really all I did was sew a new body line through the torso and sleeves and then add button details to the shoulders (buttons that I'd taken off a pair of trousers! Mwahaha!). Woo new sweater!
Also, yesterday some guy stopped me in a restaurant and said, "I could tell by your accent, are you from Oregon?" To which I stared rather dumbly at him and replied, "er. no." It was pointed out that I was actually from Britain and the guy apologized and hurriedly delved back into his meal. A good laugh! I've never even been to Oregon! But apparently they sound like Americanized Brits over there...maybe I should check it out some day...perhaps LAIKA will hire me!

Here's an update on the webby: a splash page! yes, it definately shouts "i've just found the textured illustrator brushes"...but appears to work...ish...I dunno, what do you think? I pretty much fleshed out the other pages for the site, just have to add content illustrations, redo the reel and slap some floaty character animation swfs in there...and who knows, maybe it'll magically work.
I've been slowly inspired to do more stuffed animals recently...and the other day I endevoured to make a cupcake stuffie from a pattern I found online. Unfortunately the result was a bit...erm...sad...possibly the fattest, ugliest 2 inch cupcake ever. Oh well, maybe one day I'll get it right. I'll have to try marshmellows next, they're a nice simple cylindrical shape...
Also, we have a new apartment! hurrah we won't be homeless in two weeks! I've discovered the way to make an apartment feel complete is to put lots of pictures on the walls...most people never do this and thus their places are somewhat lacking. Altho, PACKING said pictures up and moving them will be a bit of a challenge...I'm hoping a big uhaul truck won't cost an arm and leg. Oops, missing project runway now!

Apparently I have been bitten by the Mosquito-us Vampiris...seriously, my elbow swelled up and all the muscles in my arm hurt. Hurrah allergic reactions >.<;;
Minor work on the webby so far, nothing really worth posting. Think I just watched one of the weirdest movies I've seen in a long time....the Adventures of Buckaroo all-star cast and a tripped-out script. Lets see if the internet has lasted long enough for me to post this!
