I finished another vinyl toy tonight and I’m naming this one Carnival. Honestly I scraped this one a couple of times and started over. I’m happy he’s finished and I can start on a fresh new one.

Sometimes I get really awesome but super creepy ideas for my art and I feel like working on them till I get the sudden fear of “what if my mom sees this? ” then I’m too weirded out to do it.

My first and only Eel just for you Mothipede. 

I love you Tumblr even if I hardly ever post anything.

The triangle in my first weave project is complete now on to the rest of it.

Don’t you just hate it when you’re nearly done with a painting and you notice something is off. So you try to fix it and that doesn’t turn right so you try and adjust that. Then before you know it you’ve fucked the whole thing up and wasted a days worth of work. You can’t help looking back and thinking it wasn’t that off in the first place and you’ve done a terrible thing.

Started my next vinyl toy. 

Going through the #paintedgirlart tags and I realize I say Dude a lot. Pretty much anytime I talk to anyone on here.

All my vinyl creations thus far. 

The vinyl toy I finished painting today “Absolution” and I think he came out rather adorable. Pretty productive day.

I’ve been thinking of what I want to say with my art, which has always been hard for me, and what I want to discovered via art. I think the subject I’ve been dancing around for a couple of years now is the loss of religion and death/infinity. I’m going to try and hone in on my feelings to make something of the turbulence; to try and make art that has voice.
