I was tidying and sorting through some stuff when I came across my portfolio from college! Some of the paintings are horrifically embarrassing but some of the images I still have some fond memories of making.
I am sharing my favorites as to not let these get lost into time. The originals are long gone and all I have are some printouts that magically haven’t been destroyed since 2005.
This one was always one of my favorites as I loved painting the animals at the time. This was a set of behemoths (green) in the hold of Noah’s ark with some friendly rhinos, a hippo, some weird looking elephants, and an ugly bug.
This skydiving dog got me a lot of praise at the time. I think it was the personality/face of the dog.
These last two were based on some stories from Aesop’s fables.
Josh, if you are watching…I am working on the portrait. My cat Moose is helping.
With and without a human nose because it is fun.
So these are some comics Felix and I have been doing. Good fun. The characters are the Bull and the Cat Human.
I am going through a mid life crisis and I could really use your advice. I am lacking motivation. I haven’t worked in over a year and sleep most of the day. I am desperate for attention but often choose to be alone. I wake up on the couch, or even worse, in the closet, even when there are people around. Sometimes I guess I just feel more comfortable in the closet. I also have a weight problem. The only time I get up is to check if any food has appeared or to make sure my roommate isn’t eating. If I think I hear the fridge open I literally run to check it out. My other guilty pleasure is preening my hair. Does that make me vain? Sometimes I wake up and find that I have puked on the floor. WTF is up with that? Abby, can you please help me? I am kinda freaking out…
