Heres a picture I made for my dad for fathers day. I wasn't sure what to make for him since I kind of felt that my dad never really was that ultra-dad protector type, we were just always expected to take care of ourselves and not be stupid. Which I guess in itself was a kind of protector.

Figure I would upload a few blunders done in photoshop. Its quite difficult to make things not look cheap in this program! Maybe its because there are so many novice artists using it and putting pieces up on Deviantart. Or its just too clean for my taste. There are ways to to make the image aged and with different textures but heh, don't know how to do that yet.
Anyway the first little picture is of some characters from this childishly drawn futuristic murder mystery I've been thinking creating and the second piece is just a dumb portrait, nothing new, but it did lead me to think of doing a series of portraits of real people involving my growth idea.

A sketch of a scene from Tipping the Velvet. In it Kittie throws her rose to the pretties girl in the audience (an after show tradition) and it lands in the lap of Nancy who had been coming to sit in the balcony every night just to watch her. Thus the start of a complicated and eye opening love affair.
This last christmas i received the book Wicked but due to the rush to get packed and back to school i completely forgot it and never even gave it a second thought until this summer when I was searching for something to read. Such a good decision!

Old friends, new friends, family, realizations, needles, silly dreams, dog fights, cat fights, buses buses buses, dirty shaded park benches, yellowed pages, cooked meals, story books full of promise: my summer so far.
