art and innocence

as promised, I have art to share with you. 
pardon the uncompleted-ness.
each drawing is a part of my journal which is themed "self", hence all the self-portraits.

for Christmas I got Prismacolor markers!  I am so ecstatic about these; I used them in Savannah at SCAD and discovered how wonderful they are.  I've incorporated them into the above picture along with colored pencils.

my art has definitely taken a back seat for the last couple months.  it's so nice to settle back into the practice of painting and drawing; I love how breaks from school allow me the time to do just that.  with each piece of art I do, I find that my style evolves. it's almost like the endless evolution, because with each stroke of a brush or hatch of a pencil, I become more aware of what works and what doesn't; it's a learning process.

and you see this little, innocent face?

not so much.

Puck has some sharp, little teeth.
sharp enough to give me a fat lip.
a chapped, fat lip that is..

well, today I'm going to get down to the knitty gritty and get homework done *sigh*

happy thursday, bloggies!


  1. hey hey, your art is fantastic! and your pup is adorable. hope you have a happy new year!!

  2. Yay! You're work is coming along very nicely, Emily. I can't wait to see what the new year brings for you.
    Look at that puppy. Oh my god, he's so cute... Please don't take this the wrong way, but I want to squeeze him until he explodes!! But not really, because that's cruel.


  3. amazing work! SO talented...and CUTEST puppy!


  4. Aww, your poor lip! His cuteness kind of makes it okay though.. right? Right.

    I LOVE seeing your art, Emily! You are crazy talented. :)
