Sketchbook Tour june to aug 2020

 Super special thanks to Debra for gifting these Nightmare Before Christmas sketchbooks! Such a thoughtful and useful gift! <3 

**FULL Sketchbook (100 PG) June - Aug 2020 PDF**

NOTE: Some of my sketches are PG-13, What can I say you; if you draw, you want to draw everything.
Here's some of my favorite pages as a preview :D  ENJOY!

I've been thinking about creating a new pen name to make comics or art under, but not sure how secret or how to section off myself into a new username? Might be AFK for the month of March so I thought I would leave my blog on a good note with lots of sketches for you to chew on.  

ELECTRA ALBUM

Toys

 Strawberry shortcake! :D

She's so cute, I wanted her to look like the vintage doll but with my own flair. I like the original artwork for Strawberry Shortcake the best but I enjoy some of the remakes / redesigns too. While drawing I had the temptation to buy another doll for a display piece. I use to have one as a kid. They aren't too bad on ebay BUT DO I REALLY NEED IT!?!?!?!

I did buy a new my little pony, when you are bored you sometimes wander into online shopping! Dangerous place! I bought two off ebay and when they came in the mail my kid insisted one was for him. Luckily one was 10$ (the one I really wanted Sweet Pop, a twinkle eye) and the other 5$ so I begrudgingly gave him the cheaper one a unicorn to have and play with even tho I don't have it in my collection. *SIGH* it was hard cause I've already witnessed that kid destroy toys. 

I was always particular about my toys even as kid, one memory especially sticks out was with a littlest pet shop dalmatian set. I had lost the brush, in the brush there was a magnet that would make the dog wag it's tail. I was so upset just bawling my eyes out cause the set was ruined and my poor parents were besides themselves. My dad joked that he was going to have to take me to the loony bin after that tantrum. I think I was 8? ANYWAY I don't own any littlest pet shops anymore I sold my collection to some person for 250$ on a littlest pet shop forum! I do still have pictures of it on my toy collecting blog. I suppose that's all I need now. LPS toy collection pictures

Social Media Detox

I'm trying the social media detox, after I made that last post, I rage quit Instagram and Twitter removing it from my phone. I just spend too much time checking it multiple times of the day to look at updates and other creators artwork. It's getting a little out of hand. I'm having a hard time focusing on my life, family, and my artwork . Instagram can make you compare yourself to others which can really bring you down. :(

 I'm at a point in life, where I've just seen SO MUCH art that it's starting be repetitive. Mind you that has come at a cost to me, my time. Social media use to be beneficial to spend time doing research and looking outward but now I think it's just taking away my time to be doing things and affecting my attention span.

It is kinda like addiction or a bad habit, I feel like I'm quitting smoking or something. I keep wanting to go on my phone to surf but I have to pull myself away from it and try to form a new better habit. I'm  allowing myself to have access to Instagram and twitter on my computer but I have to limit my use or else I'll have to cut myself off from that.

I'm sorry to the all the artists and people I love! I can't support you with my likes or retweets. I have to tap out. I'm still experimenting what the effects are on my online presence but I don't think it will be that much. So let's see. 

I did work on hourly comic day I just didn't finish it, It's a short comic about Ina and Talo origin story. I decided I wanted to spend some time to color it. here's a preview pg 2 :D
