I Found Out Where Unicorns Come From


















My dreams make more sense than my real life does.
If you've never had a dream about Unicorns, you should. This is my second ever dream about unicorns and both have been set in my parents' paddock. I can therefore only deduce that there must be unicorns that live in their paddock.
I sleep more when I'm stressed out. Maybe I'll dream about unicorns. Or maybe I'll dream I'm a woman/bear/alligator making out with a cat, which is what I dreamt LAST night >_>

Cupcakes

I baked cupcakes last night and traded them for the second volume of Batman Black and White.

Procrasticat

After stumbling on some neat artist's blogs, Emily Carrol, Vera B, Kate Craig etc it eventually led me to Steve Wolfhard's Portrait-Dex. A place where cartoonists create Pokemon self portraits. It's entertaining and definitely worth a look if, like me, you just can't get enough of Pokemon related anything. It doesn't look like it is updated anymore but it kept me up half the night wondering what I might look like if I were a Pokemon...




















Meet Procrasticat. It has a very stubborn nature and is easily distracted by things that are soft. If it's two heads cannot agree on an action it will not do anything at all. Special abilities include sensing when cake is within a 4 meter radius. It can often be found grocery shopping for things it doesn't need.

While on the subject of Pokemon I feel it necessary to mention this article that was recently brought to my attention.
493 Pokemon Drawn as Sexy Anime Girls Because the Internet that's Why.

You're wondering what you might look like as a Pokemon now, aren't you.

Sparkletramp

I posted a while ago about my friend's fashion label and thought it deserved an update!

Hayley is still a fashion student but is already working hard with her label Sparkletramp.

Visit her blog here.
Become facebook friends with Sparkletramp here.

We did another photo shoot before Christmas, Hayley wielding the camera, me posing like an idiot and then editing the pics in photoshop.



Huge amounts of fun be I struggled to get my hair big enough! I wore this ruffle one last week for Hayley at Brisbane Threaded. A kind of young designer's night



A before and after photoshopping. Even half-decent lighting at the actual shoot makes it so much easier to photoshop.


















This is the bath sponge that is actually inside my hair. I've got a clip-in white streak in my hair but I like it so much I'm considering getting a real one.



Love Sucks

Despite my claims of complete indifference towards Valentine's Day, perhaps it makes me a little depressed at how single I am. Only for a second though. One.

There. Better now.

I am completely enamoured with the work of Emily Carroll. I really don't know anything about her except that she's rather good at drawing...

Like.
Incredibly good.
Please visit her blog Emily Carroll

What with Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day and Emily Carroll's blog, I ended up sketching this.

My Chinese Zodiac is the Rabbit. I do enjoy drawing girls clutching things.
