Well, this is it.....SEVEN more days and counting till the premiere of Jersey Gods Ish 01!! I am most definitely all kinds of excited! Not only has there been lots of positive buzz about the book, but, technically, it's my first published book and from now on will always hold a special place in my heart. :) So here is a little preview clip of a panel in Ish 01. Written by Glen Brunswick and drawn by the amazingly, talented Dan McDaid!
In anticipation of my most favorite tv show EVA, I drew up a little sketch today of Kate from LOST (Evangeline Lilly). I think she is absolutely.... GORGEOUS and has the ability to make crappy, grammy bras look HOTT! Kudos to her!! I'm not much of a tv fan in general... I think it's a complete waste of time. I would much rather be drawing, or coloring. That isn't too say I don't love movies, but as far as decent tv shows worth my time, I haven't found any... except when it came to Lost. I actually do have a love/hate relationship with it. I tend to be very impatient and must know everything and this show makes me bite my lip to the point where I'm bleeding in anticipation and dying to know answers! Supposedly this season, a lot is going to be revealed, so I am in total excitement and at the same time, it feels bittersweet knowing that the awesomeness will come to an end next year. Sadness. Until then, I am now counting down the minutes till the premiere tonight! PEACE!
I don't know what has been going on lately, but I have been a complete emotional wreck. I do tend to lean toward the moody side around my b-day, prob because getting older just sucks in general.. wish I could be a kid forEVER! Besides the birthday blues, there has been some extra drama that I am still trying to shake. This drama almost caused me to cancel my trip to New York for the NYCC and go back home a few weeks earlier than scheduled. I mean I had the finger on the button to get my hotel refund and everything. I even called my best friend, who I thought would welcome me back with open arms, and instead she reprimanded me. Apparently I needed to hear what she had to say, as hard as it was. Yes, I am not only a runner physically, but apparently emotionally as well. So now I am still going to New York, with every intention of getting my name into the heads of the people who need to know and to find a publisher for Temporal. And even with trying to deal with all the extra crappy feelings and insecurities this drama has caused me as of late.... I still can manage to escape to my world and color someone else's beautiful.

This piece was an absolute B-L-A-S-T to color! First off it was done for my partner in artistic crime, Eric Jimenez (who actually pencilled and inked it as well).... and coloring for him is always a pleasure because he never stifles me with pressure or expectations. Secondly, if you didn't realize it's a spread and even though I have done very few of them, I could seriously die happy if all I ever colored were spreads! For some reason they give me a huge sense of adventure and there is just so much room in them for me to shine.. I just go crazy with love for them! I usually tend to stick with the cooler side of the color spectrum and because I really wanted to set a certain mood for this piece and give it extra drama, I tried to push myself and use colors I am not used to using. I just thought the oranges and reds would help give it that dangerous dramatical feel... I dunno. I think in the end it turned out well. I am happy with it. I think Eric peed himself silly. I mean really.. what more could a girl want? XD
