Shoulder Angel and Devil

We're debating if I should eat the last oreo or not.

I realized that in my whole time doin' this whole social media thing on the interwebs, I've never posted an actual picture of myself. But just a plain photo wasn't good enough, so I did the old shoulder angel and devil gag.

So now everyone can see my always perfect hair!

...That last bit was sarcasm, btw.

Bowling Lanes Frame

It would be ridiculously hard to get a strike with the pins set up like that.

Not much to look at in this post, but seeing as I went for several weeks during the holidays without posting, I'd feel bad skipping another week.

Anyway, I seemed to have become a graphic designer for the bowling alley I work at by accident. I was talking to one of my bosses about the promotion papers they occasionally make, and she said she makes them in Word and she hates it. So I asked if she'd want me to do them and she said, "Hells yeah!" So most of this week was spent working on a promotion for an upcoming tournament, which is kinda uninteresting (unless you're really into bowling tournament rules and regulations), so I didn't post it. Then I spent a little time working on this image, meant to be an all purpose frame for whatever kind of promotions the bosses want to print up. They use a really old photo copier to make prints, so that means whatever I make has to be black and white and fairly simple, as little details would be lost in the copies.

This promotions deal works for me, as it gives me more art stuff to do, and after a while I can put pin monkey and graphic designer under my work experience on my resume. But it also means that whatever I might be making for fun at the time will have to be put on hold if my bosses suddenly need something made, so updates to this blog might become irregular.

...Well, more irregular anway.

Samantha and Loid for Amanda

Silly Sammy, bows aren't for dudes!

You see, people? If you say nice things about my work, you're GUARANTEED to get a thank you drawing from me!*

Ages later, I finally put up a new post. Took me a while thanks to preparing for holidays (aka last minute Christmas shopping) and doing some art work for friends, including this one with Samantha, Loid, and Belle for fellow artist and Twitter friend Amanda. She always has kind words about about the stuff I post, including these characters I made for the Scary School universe. And believe me, with all the fan art I've made, it makes me ridiculously happy when someone says they like my original works.

I also drew some of her crafts in the image, including the awesome little figures she made of the Ghost Adventures crew. Go visit her devianART page so you can see more of her work.
