It's not all bad.

Occasionally life gives you a couple of nice things amidst all the crap. Just some food for thought!

Well, it's Christmas again! The last few days have been great. I'm lucky and truly fortunate to have the family and friends I have. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart, for always being there.

Enough mushy stuff, on to a long overdue sketch! Based on a happy little dream I had last night.... :)

Merry Christmas everyone! Have a safe and happy holiday.

Damn this took a long time. Mostly for the research... but bleh, still took forever.

I'm pretty happy with the end result!

Have a great week everyone!!

More book art...

I'm working on a couple larger pieces, which is sucking away taking most of my sanity brain power at the moment. So, just another doodle for today!

This time it's Annabeth Chase from the FANTASTIC Percy Jackson series. Seriously, I know it's meant for younger kids but I love them sooo much. Just finished book two and on to starting book three! Annabeth is my favourite so far. (Although I have to admit, even though he only had a minor role so far, I love Hades too. Not surprising though... I usually end up liking Hades in most stories) She's just awesome!

Anyway, more tomorrow!

Once upon a December...

I was watching some old clips from various animated movies I watched when I was a kid and I got the urge to draw non-Disney princesses. Two, that is. But I love them.

I wanna be a princess........

Seems I keep doing this....

Yeah, missed the second update last week. Unfortunately, on Wednesday I received some truly devastating news and it took me a little while to recover. Not to worry, I'm on the mend and while I know there are still gonna be some rough days ahead, I'll keep doing my best to push through.

Enough about that.

On Saturday, my best friend, my sister and I went to Toronto. While there, we were fortunate enough to find out that the Cavalcade of Lights was on that night! Anyone who knows me knows how much I adore fireworks. So we extended our shopping trip to include the show! And here are some shots from it!

It was a great day!

A name! Finally!

...Now to run away screaming.

Yes, yes, after much mental anguish and suffering (drama queen) I finally came up with a name. And now things become real! Time to get my butt moving.

More to come!!

Fighting off a nasty bugger of a cold, but quickly drew this before I passed out last night:

Yeeah... with the Sailor Moon manga being re-released, I've been getting a little obsessed again. Don't judge me! This is my childhood coming back to me! I really need to design the SM tattoo I want to get one day! (And the Wonder Woman one... and the butterflies... etc etc... hahaha)

Kind of random.

Having never read Harry Potter before, I find myself amazed that this picture even happened. I was always sort of a closet fan of Lily and Snape (not necessarily together, just in general) from all the fan-art that has popped up on my DA watches for years. Then I got all the soundtracks for the movies (I'm a movie score whore!) and fell in love with them, so I guess that's where the inspiration for this came from.

That said.. the pic still should have been something to do with SNAPE and Lily... not James and Lily, but whatever. I'm gonna roll with it. Maybe I'll do a Snape/Lily thing later!

More to come!

Life is getting away from me!

I've been bad for updates the last few weeks... Unfortunately, life is getting away from me. I'll be back and fresh next week, it's just right now I'm on my ..7th day straight and I'm a little burnt out, haha. It's a damn good thing I love my job!

Apologies again and thanks for sticking with me!


Saturday, November 5, 2011

Copied from DA.

Another addition to my series. The titles all relate to where the girls stand with love.

This one is actually another gift for a friend at work. In her particular case, I wanted to go with sugar that has a little bit of spice. "Green" referring to her experience rather than envy.

Other than that, not much else to say. I'm actually kind of pleased with how it turned out... I hope she likes it!

Inked/Coloured in Sai.

Have a great week everyone!


Gifting time.

Another friend is going through a hard time.. and since I am, apparently, never going to get tired of adding to my series... here is "Green" from the "Love" series:

Other than that, I'm in the middle of colouring the Ben and Olivia picture.. inking the Harry Potter (James/Lily) picture I posted a while back and will start colouring Green ASAP. Also trying to think of a name for my damn comic. Would you believe that particular thing is causing me the most mental anguish? Is it weird that I hate naming things because it feels like the title itself will trap me? Man, I really AM a commitaphobe. Hahaha.

More to come!!


Saturday, October 22, 2011

A little early, but whatever!

In case I'm not back before I leave for my mini-vacation (and I wanted to show my pumpkin, Steve, off)....

Happy Halloween everyone! :D Eat lots of candy, dress up and have as much fun as you can!!


Monday, October 17, 2011

Almost 2k hits!

Thanks for checking my blog out! It certainly makes my day!

Here are the inks! I'm kinda happy with how this one turned out.... and a little excited to throw some colour on it!

Saturday, October 15, 2011

What? More than one?

Oh yes, it's true!

I know it seems like I haven't been doing much lately, but in actual fact.. the first chapter of my script is done and I've started roughing out pages! Not only that, but I've been roughing out pages for a children's book as well! So, I've actually been doing a fair bit... I just, unfortunately, can't show anything yet! Ugh!! Haha.

Just a couple pose sketches I was playing with... and decided to drop!

More to come!


Sunday, October 9, 2011

At the buzzer!

Working on a lot of stuff this week. Scripts and layouts mostly... however, I finished this up.... oh, about 1 minute ago!

Have a great week everyone!


Sunday, October 2, 2011

Another before bed!

Just some really rough stuff. Shot with the crappy cellphone camera again because the pad is too big to scan. (Which may or may not present problems when it comes to inking later..... will cross that bridge later.)

Have a great week everyone!


Everything else aside...

I recently got a drafting table as a(n extremely early) christmas present! I just love the darn thing. It is SO nice to have a little space where I can work on my own!
(shot with cellphone)

More to come!

One more!

Just a quick little ink-up of a character sketch I did of Alice and Eli!

And now, I'm going to hit the hay.


Noooot stable. Not stable at all.

Man, guys, when a mac goes.. it goes HARD.

Trying to get another update out tonight, but we'll see how it goes. Sorry again about the all-over-the-place updating. I'll hopefully get this problem solved soon.


Sunday, September 18, 2011

Rough times.... not getting better?

So... my mac died a few more times over the last couple days. Yeesh. Hopefully now it's stable and ready to go for a little longer:

But we'll see. Guh.


Thursday, September 15, 2011

Back on the horse!

Go figure, finger is almost completely better and then my computer dies for a couple days, haha! Man. Rough times.

In any case, I'm back in the game! More to come later!


Thursday, September 8, 2011

Another snag.

Well... I was back in the game and now I'm out.

A workplace injury has put my hand outta commission for a week or so. I'll be back ASAP!


Saturday, September 3, 2011

Getting back in the game.

Had a fantastic day today and so I was in the mood to get this image done finally!


Friday, September 2, 2011


Back from the dead, apparently.

Sorry about that! Last week was FanExpo, which means I spent the week preparing and the weekend fangirling. Tough work, let me tell you.

Will try to get back on track ASAP!

Midnight jog?

One of the pieces I've coloured this weekend.. the other I'm a little stuck with one part, but it'll happen.

The colours on this totally didn't go where I had planned. I was going for flat old school comic colours, left it for a few weeks and then ended up playing with silhouettes. I haven't done them before, and I love them so much!

So there you have it!


Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Busy weekend!

Sorry about the lack of update last week. I had intended to update once more before the weekend, but life got ahead of me.. and since I spent the weekend at two concerts (Britney Spears and LMFAO!), I ran outta time! But, here we go!

Here we have Alexis all finished! I'm not satisfied with this though... there's something about it that's bothering me. Hrm. Oh well! It was still fun (and I like her corset, haha. Are we noticing a trend?)


Thursday, August 11, 2011

Another in the series..

Just the line work for the next image in the series.

Alexis! She is the character that the person from my last post (and my sister) sort of combine to make. Only more slutty. Haha.

More to come!


Friday, August 5, 2011


Another gift for a friend.. but it actually goes with my series of drawings. ("Jaded" and "Hopeful")

This friend was actually the inspiration for another picture (  and part of the inspiration for Alexis! Although Alexis is a combo of a couple of people. I'm definitely going to enjoy writing her.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Art therapy?

Got a little stressed out last night and while I finished writing the first chapter of my story (and started the scripting!) I just didn't feel like doing any artwork related to it.

Which lead to that. (Side note: One day, I want to own an outfit like her's.)


Sunday, July 31, 2011

Testing the waters....

Which I really shouldn't be doing. I should be script-writing. However... when a scene gets stuck in your head...!

Super rough, still playing with style... but it was fun!


Saturday, July 30, 2011

More concepts!

More concepts from my little project. This time we have more of the secondary characters!

More to come, but for now I'm off to work!


Wednesday, July 20, 2011


I'm not exactly sure where my head was at with this one.... (oh, who am I kidding? I know exactly where it was at) but here we go anyway, haha.

That catches me all up. Seems like I had more... it certainly felt like more with all that scanning!


Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Red Panda, I love you!

But I cannot draw you. Oh well. Pencil crayons are still fun!


Sunday, July 17, 2011

More catch-up!

More things to catch up with.  Same thing, working with character designs. In this case, it's just one character mostly: Benjamin. In his case, he's actually one part of the bakery couple from before, but his background/personality are different. Ben is also taller. Considerably. So.. really... all I kept about "David" was the look. Hah. I guess that's how it goes when you like the look of a character!

Anyway. I'll stop now! More catch-up stuff to come this week.


Saturday, July 16, 2011

New stuff!

I was relieved to realize that, while I hadn't updated, I was actually still drawing a lot. I just wasn't scanning it in! So I spent the afternoon catching up!

These are some character designs I'm still finalizing. I'm having a rough time deciding on style, mostly. And the writing part... but I always struggle with writing. Oh well. It'll come!

More to come!


Saturday, July 9, 2011

Distracting week.

A LOT on my mind this week. Highly distracting. This is what I did on Thursday, though:

So it certainly wasn't all bad.

Magenta Wave

(copied from DA)

Nearly 7k hits for me? Awesome. Thanks for checking out my page(s) guys, I really truly appreciate it! <3

This started out as a super quick doodle to untangle my brain. Which lead to some fun inking, which lead to fun colouring. That's how it goes!

Have a great week!


Saturday, July 2, 2011

July 2nd

As far as I'm concerned, every restaurant, regardless of how "high-end" they are, should have table cloths you can draw on.

More to come!


Saturday, June 25, 2011

Midnight oil?

Well. It's after midnight and I'm up working anyway... so another update! Mostly because I have this feeling that tomorrow is going to get away from me.

Okay! Have a good week everyone!



Honestly, why can this blog update itself with a scan as soon as I finish doodling something?! haha.

Not gonna lie, the week totally escaped me. It was one of those frustrating-can't-seem-to-draw-anything weeks. :( Huge drag, but here we go!

More to come!


Saturday, June 18, 2011

Quick update!

Quick little photo dump before I head off to bed! Big day tomorrow!!

Happy Father's Day to all those amazing dads out there!! :)

Zoo inspiration!

I got a little inspired from my trip to the zoo yesterday!

We didn't actually see the tropical fish, but I bought a lionfish stuffed animal and that made me wanna finally draw some!

That's all I have for now!
