Black and White

I had way to much fun with this piece! I can't wait to start my job and get going with repeat patterns...I'm such a nerd. This is the back of my deck of cards- it's in black and white here, but when I print it with the cards it will be navy blue...so it matches better. Sweet.


I have two ponds in my backyard at my home in Rochester, and the other day my dad told me there were only 3 tadpoles this spring! Normally there are a billion of them squirming around...so this piece is dedicated to the loss of all our tadpoles. Sniff Sniff.

Froggie Queen...look at those lips :*

Frog Prince Fairy Tale Bloggaroo

Instead of just doing 8 random blogs that I can't use for anything, I decided to make mine into a series that I can put in my portfolio. The frog is SUPER happy!

under the sea

Soooo this piece is from my thesis project. Last summer I painted half of this fish piece and at the time I had no idea how to use computers. Now with my amazing SKILLS I was able to flip and double the image, plus add a hippo! YAY!

So this is actually my feng shui piece that I illustrated for the sex magazine. But I figure Jeff won't mind if I use it as one of my blogs...since I'm not getting credit for it in any class. I know he'll complain about it for awhile- but then he'll get over it when he realizes he has no power over us! MWAHAHA. Alright, time for food. Toodles.

My eyes are on fire.

I haven't slept nearly enough and my eyes are on FIRE! But here are my cute jungle animal examples that Alyssa asked me to create for her. She rocks my world.

Time goes by...so slowly...

...every little thing that you say or do...I'm hung up- I'm hung up on you. Waiting for your call baby night and day. I'm fed up. I'm tired of waiting on you.

Thanks Madonna for that inspirational song. So here' my blog...I finally figured out a way to do use an effect on the background and not get that little white shit that Jeff freaks out about. It only took me about 2 hours to figure it out- thanks Jeff for teaching me so I wouldn't have to suffer- NOT!

We had to create an "invention" this week. I was SO psyched when I thought up this fish-bowl carrier thingy for a monster who's half fish half not-fish. However, I showed it to Jeff and he thought it was a bad idea and that I had no soul and no chance in making it in the art world. Not that this made me feel bad or anything. I only cried for 45 minutes afterward. Anyway- I decided to rise up against Jeff's evil ruling and do it ANYWAY! So THERE! And this is what I came up with...maybe Jeff was right, it wasn't such a good idea. But the monster is cute!

God was our blog assignment this week. I haven't done a single "painting"...meaning off the computer-work this entire semester...so here's a little paint brush work.

I'm currently in my room...sarah has been bitching about her "gummmy bear" issues for about 2 hours. Meanwhile, the beauty keeps trying to fall asleep on me and I won't let him, because I always think he's dead when he's napping. Sorry beaut. You'll just have to wait until 3 am to sleep. So this is my vehicle...for now- I wanted to do more of a background, but I ran out of time. I'm sure Jeff will complain about this, then he'll dig in some unnecessarily evil comment about my personal life and I'll cry inside until his class is finished. Yay for tuesdays!

Rob makes awesome armpit farts

Rob is sitting next to me...screaming and crying about who knows what. We worked in illustrator today which was fun, but once again my work was not good enough for Jeff. That twit. Look at my sad monster!

my life is in shambles

I'm in class...but where the hell is elliot? That slacker. This is the lion we had to paint in class - it looks a little creepy, but Jeff is making me post it for the world to judge. Thanks. A lot.

Monsters and Tendinitis

I got back from my dance competition late on Saturday with full-blown tendinitis...but we did kick ass in NYC. YEEEAH! Due to my condition, the monsters are a little shaky, but completed nevertheless--and done with a brush line, in order to make Jeff a happy little camper. Although I'm SURE he'll find something to complain about. (Like the fact that I didn't fix the linework on last weeks piece). Oh vell. As for the story behind this piece...the idea is that this hideous monster woke up and was walking down the hallway when this cute little guy attached himself to his leg. You can imagine the rest of the story- and while you're at it...illustrate it for me so I don't end up with crepitus by the end of the week. Thanks so much for your help. NOT

What up BIATCHES! I'm in class...I've survived Jeff's brutal comments with only a broken heart. It's ok...sniff sniff- I'll make it through. So we had to paint apples today in class...and this is what I came up with. I wasn't allowed to draw worms and things coming out of it. How sad. Until next time....

Some close-ups


Hey hey...imagination was the assignment of the week and I got a little carried away to the point where there's no possible way anyone could know what the hell is going on in this piece. But- the monster is pretty cute...right? And I had to add the little mousies along the pipes because I'm so fond of little mousies. Anyway, the idea was SUPPOSED to be this monster who eats these little bits of things (love, music, TV) things that are ordinary everyday things and then it farts out little imagination bubbles. But then I got distracted by the piping and all hell broke lose. So this is what came out of my bizarre brain. No I have not done any drugs- can you believe that?

Tuesday's class

So Jeff was a little upset that I wasn't "listening" to his photoshop demonstration today....however I DID do everything he asked us to try, I just happened to spend all my extra time in illustrator. AND LOOK AT THE INCREDIBLE PIECE I CREATED! hahaha...it was a porcupine, but I think it turned hamster on me. Anyhoo, Jeff's the man and I will know how to use illustrator by the end of this semester- or I'LL KILL ELLIOTT...that is a promise. Until next time...peace.

So our first assignment for Jeff is to depict winter. I opted for this hibernating bear because I don't particularly like people. I wanted to finish it yesterday because it was snowing like crazy, but I got distracted by America's Next Top Model re-runs and so I wasted the day in front of the tv. Anyhoo, this is my first photoshop "painting" I have ever completed...and it would not have been possible without the use of my new wacom tablet. I am in love with it. Go get one. Now.

I just came up with the worst blog name ever.

Ok, so it's Tuesday...and I'm in my first digital class with Jeff Passetti. We have to blog throughout the semester and our tiny task for the day was to come up with a name for our blog. I almost had a mental breakdown. Let's hope the rest of this class isn't quite so difficult, or I may not make it out alive. However I'm sitting next to smelliot and the stench is almost unbearable (this spelling was by Jeff), so there is little chance I'll make it through the next hour. Please god, have mercy on my soul. That is all.
