Some mythological creatures

The cockatrice, hatched from the egg of a rooster that was sat upon by a toad. It's basically a rooster with a lizard/dragon tail that can kill you by looking into your eyes or breathing on you.

One of my favorites, the manticore. A lion's body with a human face and poison-barbed tail. So cuddly.

My favorite thing to draw are creatures; whether fantasy or cryptozoological. Awesome fun!

Marvel Cats

I am absolutely loving Marvel Cats. I just yanked these from my sketchbook.
I love me a mopey Wolvie fat cat that meows like, "mer."
Chamber tabby!

And Penance, who is still one of my favorite characters to draw.

Let's go for a walk! I feel great!

I've been watching My Neighbor Totoro for three days straight. Best three days of my life!

Fall 2010

So very, very ready for cooler weather.

Fall semester at SCAD-Atlanta is kicking off nicely. I already have a ton of work to do, but it's all fun.

I went with Erin Gladstone, Cara McGee, and Falynn Koch to Japanfest at the Gwinett convention center this afternoon. We watched some guy put on a one man show, where he enthusiastically played all four roles (the princess, the villain, the hero Aishu Kamen, and False Aishu Kamen). He also did some juggling, tightrope walking, and quick changes in an onstage tent WITHOUT EVER CLOSING THE FLAP. It was the hardest I've laughed in a while, yo. Love! Justice!! Aishu Kamen!!! Had some delicious takoyaki and black milk bubble tea. I really really wanted some mochi and some onigiri what bad, but they were sold out. I wanted to buy everything!! So much cute Japanese stuff at the booths!!! Hello Kitties, Tare Pandas, other kitties, Totoros, Nintendo controller wallets, catbus hats, pencil cases, everyeveryeverything. I did end out getting a soot sprite and two books, but I could have spent a small fortune on all the stuff I wanted.

Today was also my first time to H-Mart. I feel like I can never shop at a regular grocery store again. I just want udon noodles, mochi, fresh squid and scallops, and onigiri for the rest of my life. And I want everything packed in a Hello Kitty bento box.

I will definitely have to go to Japan soon.
