(This is what it looks like in normal light) Still a work in Progress, I'd like to draw a bunch of stuff and do a lot of detail at the bottom there.
Bird skull I painted, yes, in black light paint.

Some pictures from my white wall shoot with CNQ Photography, all unedited except for a few that are cropped or what not, and other than the snails, birds, and boxes enabling these to be blog-friendly, no color correction or anything like that. Only one photo is edited that was sent to me by the photographer. Such a great time, and definitely my personal favorite shoot yet. :)

After discovering that part of my privileges of being a student worker in the sculpture studio are copping any and all great pieces of wood left behind by ungrateful freshmen who have no idea what they are throwing away, I have become quite the hoarder and texture snob when it comes to painting anymore. The freshman foundation sculpture class uses such nice smooth pine, as Joe put, "it can be as smooth as a baby's ass when sanded with some 220". One mans trash, another girl's canvas.
So basically, as Nancy Chunn (my wenesday painting teacher) put it, "Oh what a fantastic world you live in!", Upon looking at these two paintings. She declared she wanted to come live there as well and I stared at here blankly because I could only imagine what volumes of crazy she must have been thinking I was.

I Just finished My most up to date painting, though I'm CONSTANTLY pumping out doodles, small watercolors and pastel works like My mind pumps out thoughts. They basically come out holding hands. Ha. But this was probably my favorite painting I've done, up to date and I sold it yesterday for 90$, which is fantastic because I am constantly frivolously spending money lately. However this painting was based off of a smaller drawing done in pen and ink and I was really happy with how the large scale turned out.
I find that in limiting my color pallet I have been more successful, Because otherwise I go kind of crazy. And use way too many colors. So if I stick to monochromatic, or if I say I'm just going to use primary colors or even just black and white line work it's a lot more successful.

So I sent people who gave me their address a letter.
I also sent it to some people who I don't know.
Either way, your letter should have led you here.
You are all a part of something I got an idea for upon waking up in the middle of the night after a really weird dream. That actually had nothing to do with this project.
However, I came to the realization that three things that I love more than anything, are Doodling, Getting Mail, and The music I listen to while I doodle.
Basically I wanted to give my drawings a home, also give others the enjoyment of getting mail that ISN'T asking for money, AND some new song lyrics. Each drawing has a line or two from the song I was listening to while I created it.
(If there aren't lyrics on the back of yours it means I was probably listening to an instrumental band, aka explosions in the sky or the band that resides in my apartment.)
I hope everyone enjoys their mail, if you could pass on the website to as many people as you know that would be fantastic :)
If you hate it, never want to look at the drawing or website ever again in your whole life, just recycle and give it to a friend.
Pictures of certain letters will be up soon, maybe yours will be on here..
if you didn't get a letter, but came across this first, let me know.
It's like an art scavenger hunt but you don't really have to do anything except put in a web address. And I'm sure you were already on your computer anyway. -.^

I brought my watercolors back to NYC.
I forgot how fun it is to make little stains and go searching for images like a little kid with an eye spy book. I think that's why I love doodling so much, I can continue being a child all the time. I think it's going to thunderstorm :]
