This is a work in progress that is very close to being done, it’ll eventually be a sticker when I’m completed with it. Albeit with a lot of detail taken out so as to be easier on the ink, haha. My friends saw the beginning stages of it and both made a reference to The Warriors, so I sort of ran with that idea. I’ll upload the finished version and sticker version when they’re both done.
This is the first time I drew an image from scratch in Photoshop and enjoyed the process and end result. Also, I wanted something more cartoon-y and more fun than usual. Take a look at it full size!
A work in progress where I’m focusing mainly on the witch figure. She has people, she turned tiny with a spell, hanging on a string (acting as a noose). It was all for fun and indulgence, and there’s nothing much behind it, like most of my drawings .(For shame.) As always there’s a lot of things I don’t like about it, and that could be improved. Hopefully I’ll learn from my mistakes. I really need to get on doing some studies, it’s been too long. I plan on working on the girl in the top right corner next. It’s supposed to be a girl wearing a cutesy plague doctor mask for non-practical purposes.
Since I finally feel like creating I’ll be able to work on mailing some people soon. Full view to actually see things! Although nothing’s done, so I guess it’s not too important.
I have a new sticker up if anyone is interested.
A quarter is shown for comparison. This sticker is based off of an interesting disorder that some people struggle with called trichotillomania. It’s characterized by compulsive pulling of the hair, and some feel compelled to eat the strands themselves. The picture is a bit cutesy, and in real life this girl would probably be balding. However, I’ve garnered inspiration from it. This sticker is big! so find a nice place for it.
Oh yeah, I finished this a long time ago.
Anonymous asked: How did you learn to draw?
I’m self taught. Lurking 4chan’s /ic/ board for years taught me many things. By the time I was in art classes in high school I knew what the teacher was talking about. Not that that’s much of an impressive feat, but if it weren’t for /ic/ I probably wouldn’t have learned it until then, ha. Or maybe I would have because I got more serious about drawing as I got older; but I think /ic/ is a great environment for people in that mindset.
But yeah, mostly self-taught, and drawing from observation. Which I haven’t done in a long time, and need to work on. Thanks for the curiosity!
2013 Chicago Zine Fest haul. ‘twas a blast. #zinefest #chicagozinefest #zines
Aw, neat! My stickers are in here. And my zine Life is Beautiful (as well as my collaborative zine This Could Be You, But It’s Not)!
Chicago Zine Fest haul! I believe I was able to get all of this amazing art (and inspiration for weeks to come) for under 7 dollars. I spent the majority of my visit with a grin from ear to ear, running around giddily while my boyfriend held my coat and tried to catch up (Shout to you, Alex!). I am in love with everything pictured and everything else I was able to see. Well done, zinesters!
Pictured: 6 zines, 5 stickers, 3 buttons, 3 business cards, 1 bookmark, 1 print
Aaah, my stickers are in your post! I did the Trichotillomania, Panic, and the girl with the eyeballs stickers. I’m glad you enjoyed them. The Chicago Zine Fest was an absolute pleasure. I hope I can go next year.
Just a boring drawing I did a long time ago.
