Koala Mariachi Band

Aye another week where I've been completely lacking inspiration. I doodle an idea down in my sketchbook but will rarely do a fully computer generated follow through.

Yesterday though I was browsing the TourCrush Forums, somewhere I had not been on in a longggg time. There is a set of art posts, and one girl posted the opportunity for her to draw requests. Needless the say it seems the topic had not been touched since June.

One of the users asked for a Koala Mariachi band. So I just ran with it.

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Diet

Alright well I haven't kept up with my faithful updates as promised.

It is summer after all.

I eat a lot Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Why? Because it takes like 7 minutes to make, is tasty, and one box leaves me with leftovers for the next day. I also tend to know a lot about it, I once made a interactive time line of the bright orange delight in Adobe Director.

I practically live in boxes of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. And I choose to do so.

Rotti Your King is Dying

So my journey into watercolors continues. Today I went for the head honcho Rotti Largo:

Big improvement from my Amber Sweet.
I'm doing a biggg collage . . .picture thing. Rotti is the top and center. So I'm pretty sure I have to continue his arms and shoulders. Don't know if I want to do that on Photoshop or IRL with the watercolors.

I also got a new scanner today D: It epically scans at 300 DPI as a default! Very exciting compared to my old scanner.

And of course I figured I'd upload a photo of my working conditions here at home:

A little cramped eh? The DVD of course for reference and the apple well . . . for noms sake. :D

The Cashew Family

The last few days have been pretty busy for me. I've been attempting to live this summer like a true summer.

I have two "bigger," projects in mind but didn't want to tackle them today since I was going to see Bruno later [not sure if that is still happening] but anyway, I asked a friend what to draw. She reminded me she told me last time to draw her a family of cashews. :P

Aussie vs Garnier

I keep forgetting to buy shampoo. To top that off we haven't had hot water in . . . weeks. So it's very frustrating to start my day off.

I only use Aussie because it's the only shampoo that can thoroughly wash my 70% hair glue & hairspray hair. But since there was none left I had to use a random sample bottle of Garnier this morning.

I hated it. So I decided to sketch a passe of Aussie hairproducts waiting for Garnier to show up, to get what he had coming. I was so enthralled while designing the Aussie bottles, and decided in my anger to put less effort into the Garnier.

Take that you stupid shampoo.

First Entry :D

Hellooo and welcome to the first entry of my blog. :D I started this blog so I could get motivated in completing my own independent projects, outside of school now since I did the hokey pokey and turned myself around, education-wise.

A little about me? My name is Laura, and I'm 21 years old, and I'm a freelance designer. Mostly I like to play around on Adobe Illustrator, to learn more about me or my work feel free to visit my website:

I spend a lot of my time on the computer >.> and have about 2 million other accounts on 2 million other websites. My Twitter, for instance, is on the right. I'm contemplating making this a weekly/biweekly, blog. I tried daily . . .not happening.
Plus it's an easy way to track my progress.

Oh and eventually this cheap layout is getting thrown out the window but for now it stays until I figure out how to code one on my own. :[

Earlier this week I was propositioned for an internship at a place called, "Goggleworks." Unfortunately, Goggleworks is a tad bit out of the way transportation wise. :[

But to eleviate some of the stress I was feeling with the decision, I created this.

When I hear Goggleworks, the first thing I think of is the Willy Wonka goggles. I also enjoy the concept of a Snozzberry. So I married them both.
