Recent Sketches

Here's some stuff I've been working on. This is 1/6th of all my sketches, but the only ones worth putting up. I'm really in love with my class.

The one above is supposed to be a after a famous actor. Bet nobody would guess lol.

Anyway, I'm off to do more - my next batch is due wednesday - so everyone have a great day!

Last night at College Station, TX

These were taken the last night I stayed at College Station, TX.

I decided to wear my velvet skirt as a dress and call it a night. I didn't feel like wearing anything too crazy. Still at the bar/restaurant we had dinner, I was the only one who stood out.

No jeans, summery top or dress, no cowboy boots - I bet everyone thought I was an anomaly.

I look sleepy here but 11pm isn't even late.

Aggieland Day

Last weekend, I found myself in the middle of Aggieland day at Texas A&M. Now, I've never been a fan of A&M and will probably never be, but since I was staying at College Station, TX (the home of A&M) I found myself compelled to visit.

I have to admit that most campuses look the same to me, so I mostly payed attention to the superfluous amount of Howdys, bikes, and cadets everywhere.

It was kind of neat looking at perspective students beaming with enthusiasm.

Btw after walking for a while, it got really hot. I can't imagine being these guys. They were really cool though.

Raisin Rage Smudge

It seems tonight it's going to snow and sleet again, so I'm glad I took these pics before the weather got all crazy again.

I just spent all day in front of my computer finishing up some homework, and I'm so mentally drained! oh and hungry...

Anyway, this is a vintage dress paired with pointy heels and Jessica Simpson belt. It's cozy and warm, perfect for the office.

Btw have I mentioned, I can't stop wearing lipstick? I am obsessed with lipstick for the first time in my entire life. Sure I liked lipgloss for a short time in high school, but lips haven't ever been a strong point for me. But now, I carry two in my purse at all time, plus my chapstick. It's almost as if I'm trying to make up for the time I lost.

I'm wearing Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Raisin Rage 630 creme.

I'm at it again

This is the first official drawing for my illustration class. In some aspects, I did better than I typically do. And in some, it looks pretty average. However, I like it. Below is the picture I followed.

This illustration class seems to be - so far - more in depth in the drawing department than my drawing class. I'll see how it goes, but so far my two classes are turning out to be awesome. I can't believe I haven't taken these classes before.

The Indulgence of Sheer Black

Please excuse my indulgence in this set of pictures. I really like them and managed to only delete four from the original post. My mom has so much patience for our little shoots. However, they go rather fast as I just move and she just keeps the shutter open.

I haven't worn this dress in so long - at least a year. So I thought I'd give it a little love. I paired this with a sheer top my mother has had forever, and of course when she saw me wearing it, I had to apologize for taking it. lol

Dallas has been covered with ice for a whole day and with the temperature staying at 11 degrees, it's supposed to stay covered tomorrow too. Work has already announced it's closing its doors tomorrow, which makes for a perfect opportunity to just lay back and watch movies - just like today.

Btw I'm completely in love with these sunglasses I bought at Target the other day. Of course, they really are worthless when it comes to blocking the uv rays, but what the heck? they are awesome.
