I keep my pencils in a shot glass

It’s pretty well known that SFU has one of the most attractive student bodies in North America, especially when the international students get factored in. Luckily for me, I get to work weekends, which means the international students make up a large percentage of human life left on campus: the attractiveness ratio hits the roof and keeps rocketing upwards. At least six different accents an hour, guys. My heartbeats.

Batting eyelashes aside, one such student happens to be in one of my classes. I’m pretty certain she’s the cutest thing I’ve seen in ever. Between her affinity for Starbucks and my crazy work schedule, I get to see her lots. Not nearly enough, but lots. Here’s a drawing of her, because it’s way more fun to sketch when the subject’s that charming.

am I right, guys?

am I right, guys?

I rest my case.

Pencil and ink (black fine-tip ballpoint). Things are getting out of hand. (apologies for the awful quality, my phone camera was all I had). Michelle, I hope you don’t mind me drawing you, your face is just too sketchable to resist.

The Dressing Room

The Dressing Room

I was a ballet girl (though I loved contemporary better) for twelve years, and volunteered in a costume shop for two.  This is not my best rendition of a hanging tutu, but it was what I whipped off in preparation for the second juried art show this month. This one got in, which is cool. Feels like too-pink nostalgia.

Tea Time

Swandive

It’s four o’clock, and all the creatures of the other world want their tea.
Billowing skirts, rustling leaves, beating wings all reaching for a sweet bite, a sip of steeped tea leaves, and perhaps a softly boiled egg.

This is an old piece, done a couple of years ago for my AP art portfolio. It’s my second submission for a juried art show in my area, wish me luck!

P.S. Like my homemade, awful copyright watermark? It’s kitschy. I like it.

Carnival at Sea

Carnival at Sea

I finally broke out the acrylics and painted something new, for the first time in months. The idea’s been brewing in the back of my mind for a couple of weeks, so it was easy to paint quickly. This is only the first night, so it might change, but comments and criticisms are warmly welcomed.
