sorry for bringing this into existence

so i had braces when i was younger and when you get braces they give you a retainer so your teeth don't move around and i was bad and never wore mine. so my teeth moved a lot, so much that the original retainer they gave me doesn't fit anymore and they had to make me a new "in between" one. they told me i'm supposed to wear it 24/7 to get my teeth to move enough to fit into the original one, but that means having to wear it around people which i'm really self conscious about because i can't talk when i wear it. so i made myself a little poster to keep in my cube at work:

spent way too much time on it

one of my favorite aesthetics right now is "bad photoshop"

Almost left work before I drew!! I had a busy day with not much time for doodling. Didn't want to break my promise to myself after day 1 so here.

I'm going to my friends' art show opening tonight and I'm excited so I drew your average art opening goer. Judgement and wine in a solo cup with high-waisted pants to boot!! My lines are sorta ugly and I think it's because I rushed a little, but also maybe it's because I drew at a small size.

Haha I suck and am a liar

So I have a job now, I'm working as a clean-up artist on Fairly OddParents at Nickelodeon. It's awesome I love it so much and I have access to all these amazing artists and this big beautiful CINTIQ TABLET WOW.

Yes I failed regarding my last post and I'm embarrassed but how can I get better if I don't pick myself back up.

So I'm gonna try and start posting SOMETHING every day no matter how much I hate it. The goal again will be to draw for at least an hour but if it comes down to it, I'll just do a doodle. Anything to keep my hand moving I guess.

So today I drew the monster of negativity because I'm into drawing metaphors and cheesy stuff these days.

He's got legs like that so he can crouch on your shoulders and latch onto your head while he breathes really loudly and annoys you and you can't forget about him.

Finally a Blog!! New Goal, and a Drawing

So here I am like a year later and I haven't made a single post. It's not that I haven't been drawing, I have been. Not as much as I should, but I have been.

I'm in the last week of my internship at Nickelodeon. It's really been an incredible experience. I'm so, so lucky that I was able to be a part of it. I've learned so much and have met many amazing people who I will be friends with for a very long time, and hope the best for. Anyway, I'm really sad that it's ending, but I have made some memories that I will never forget, and I have a lot more direction in my career now.

Something that I've run into this semester is a realization that I have some really bad anxiety when it comes to showing my work to people. Another realization I've had is that I will never, ever improve if I don't get over that! So I'm going to stop waiting for myself to be "good" and start using this blog.

I want to set a goal for myself today: Post a drawing here every day! Or at least, draw something every day and post it later. The only requirement for these drawings is that I am happy with them. As time goes on, I'll start making theme days for myself, like maybe comic days or prop days or I don't really know yet.  The point is just to push myself. I'd also like to prioritize tablet drawings over pencil ones because I really need practice with a tablet!!

So here's today's drawing:

It's me when I'm having fun at a dance party but then suddenly they play dubstep. Was part of a bigger narrative I was trying to work on but this is the only part that survived my self criticism...
