Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for."
~Georgia O'Keefe

The other day, my mom ran across some old pics of me doing my thing.  It's funny how we change as we grow up -- but it's easy to see our present selves in old pictures.  I still sit around barefoot, coloring things.  I still enjoy doing art stuff.  It's good that some things never change.

"Genius at Work" -- I would dearly love a t-shirt like that now!  And the sacred three-face-bowl!

"Bluebonnet Girl" -- Always fun having artwork displayed.

"Playdoh" -- ah, the Gumby characters.  I think Pokey's white mane and tail are due to a lack of black Playdoh.

In other news, I got to play with colored pencils the other day, and "Fire-Beast" was born.

Pluggin' Away

"Gotta gotta be down, because I want it all..."
~The Killers, "Mr. Brightside"

Not much to relate at the moment, dear readers.  I'm still pluggin' away at various t-shirt designs, working on a portrait, and trying to figure out how best to put together a hard-copy portfolio.  (Suggestions are welcome!)

"Live Green" -- my token Earth Day design, I suppose.

"Ophelia", a design for ShirtWoot's "Madness" contest.

"Storybook" and "Strongman", done for ShirtWoot's "S is For..." contest.

"Scheherazade's Other Tales", my entry in ShirtWoot's "Literature Mash-up" contest.

"Bayou Jug Band"
