Tea Party Under the Sea

I'm working on a personal illustration and trying to get into the habit of planning my grayscale values ahead of time. This is what I have so far.

I started coloring it today and realized it's going to take me forever. I think I may be going about it in a really stupid manner...

I also can never seem to get my chip-to-salsa ratio right. 

I keep getting news about my website and how it will be ready in just a few short days. It's been a long few short days, but luckily I'm not being held up too much because I'm still unsure of what I want to send out for my postcards when my site is ready. 

I'm hoping when I'm finished with this I like it enough to use it for postcards.

Happy Valentine's Day

A few Valentine's I made for 2014.  A lot of people really go out of their way to announce how much they hate Valentine's Day. I don't really get it. It's similar to people who hate Dave Matthews. If you really hate it, why do you feel so strongly about it that you're compelled to make a big announcement about how much you hate it? Shouldn't it be the last thing from your mind?

If anything Valentine's Day is just a nice way to break up the never-ending mundaneness that is Winter. What's so wrong with that? End of rant. Happy Valentine's Day :^)

Sad Mailbox

Just a quick doodle for Valentine's Day 2014. This holiday is kind of sneaking up on me. Not that Valentine's Day requires a lot of preparations, but I was planning on at least making a batch of cookies..
