Whistle for the Choir






Sweater: Target
Vest: Thrifted
Belt: Modcloth
Skirt: H&M
Watch: Hot Topic
Nail Polish: Katy Perry for OPI (I haven't painted my nails in years!)


It's been a while between posts because I've been busy kicking my butt on commissions and school work...we more or less had a project due today, or so we thought. I went into class expecting to turn in the massive 16x20 inch watercolor I've been dying over, only to find the professor decided to give us an extra week for tweaks.

I honestly don't think I can stand to look at it for a whole other week, but at least we have the prompt for our next project! It's book covers! I'm so very very excited for it! :D
I was thinking The Scarlet Letter, Wuthering Heights, or The Great Gatsby; I'm not a big fan of any, but I think the stories lend themselves to some really fun and interesting covers.

Speaking of books, my sister and I are putting together a book...she writes beautifully, and I draw cheaply, so we're good together. XD
She wrote the most amazing story called Wendybird, which is her take on Peter Pan. We're planning on going through Lulu, and I'm working on the pdfs as well (yayyy Graphic Design class XD). Wish us luck. :o

  17. that's cool ya'll are doing a book together! i've always wanted to write a children's book. also, i know what you mean about not wanting to look at your watercolor anymore... i've taken a few studio classes, and when you're done with something.. you're done! i definitely don't have the patience to be an art major.
