IF FAST, BABY IN BELLY COMING SOON


This is my first Illustration Friday submittal. This week's topic is Fast. I was originally working on some painting including a snail and a turtle, but then decided to go with this one instead. This is my next maternity shirt design and it made me realize how fast children grow, how fast they're ready to come to this world, have fast their ready to have their own personalities and be their own people. This Bayb is ready to come out and he/she's coming fast.

DIGI STAMP

First of all, it's Friday! Yeay!!! Happy Friday everybody!!!

Second of all, I just bought my first digi stamp ever. I've never stamped with real stamps either so I'm not sure how this works but it pretty much seems like it's coloring and then incorporating the design into cards and stuff. I got it from http://digistampcharacters.etsy.com/  and it's pretty amazing what others do with those stamps. Here's an example.
And third of all - maybe most importantly - I got my first follower today:)

SURFING OTHER BLOGS

Is it still surfing when you're browsing blogs??? I'm having some problems with it, since there doesn't seem to be a way to browse blogs by subject, but I just kept on hopping from one onto another. Anyway, there are some awesome people out there. I'm completely wowed. They're very very creative, innovative, genius really. Some of the things they do I can't even wrap my mind around to figure out how they're done. And the ideas! Wow! I think I'm going to post some of my favorites here. Best Part:  http://tbpdesign.blogspot.com/  feels like a good one because it compiles so many different forms of creativity. Wow! Got to run. Back to surfing!

BABIES IN BELLY



After I've finished with Baby in Belly, I thought about how twins would fit in. Here they are - my Babies in Belly. Should they be named Baybs? Not sure, nobody has really commented on Bayb as a name idea. I still kind of like it.
Working on this painting really made me realize how much more crowded the twins are. And yes Mary (my dear coworker and friend), I do know that this is not really how they are positioned in there:)
Here's this design on some products: www.cafepress.com/feelingartsy
Are triplets next? Triplets are in the making but in the meantime there'll be something else:)

CAN'T DO MUCH

You don't really realize how much you use your thumb until you halfway cut it off. Getting a little frustruated with it and myself. Can't really blog because it hurts, but painting is even harder. So here's my palette all sad waiting until I'm ready to use it again.

BABY IN BELLY


Here's my Baby in Belly design. I've been thinking of naming him / her Bayb but I'm not sure whether it's too cheesy.
It's a watercolor painting on Arches. (I'm totally in love with Arches!!!)
I thought Bayb would be perfect on maternity tees, hence my new account with cafe press: www.cafepress.com/feelingartsy
I've gotten a few comments so far. They varied anywhere from awesome to disgusting! What do you think?

MY FIRST BLOG

So, here it is - my first blog. Feeling artsy? what does it mean?, you might ask. It's me - I'm the one who's feeling artsy. I always do, even when I wake up in the morning and I'm moody and mean and pretty much want to kill everybody around. What is it like to feel artsy? For me, it's feeling inspired by pretty much anything. You'd think: "everybody can get inspired by a gorgeous butterly flying by" but I'm thinking more in terms of really anything - a broken plate might inspire a mosaic, an old pair of shoes - a painting, a cat sleeping - a fuzzy set of pj's.
Why am I blogging about it though and boring you with it? I feel the need to do more, the want to put my ideas into tangible items instead of continuing to daydream. I feel that putting it out there in writing, will inspire me to actually stop doing everything else and take the time to paint, sketch, sew or whatever it is that's I'll get inspired to do.
