These Golden Years

Setting Sun

______Actually doodling something out this summer is my attempt to stall taking pictures since it is like a bajillion and four degrees outside.  I drew this with a vibrant rainbow of Sharpies, this pen I found on my lampshade, and a small assortment of prismacolor pencils.  One of our school's librarians proposed that I draw a picture for the library of anything in the world (which means I could have drawn a fire-breathing orange in space) that she could put up with all these other people's artsies to make a montage of artsy doom or something.

______To be honest, I really don't know why there's a colorless female sitting atop what resembles a rainbow road poured from epileptic seizures.  It was a step down from the fire-breathing orange in space, I think.  Couldn't get too crazy.

I absolutely love this drawing-- it's crazy, because your personal style is so different than mine when I draw!! Maybe some time we can exchange tips or.. maybe you could draw me something and I'd do the same for you? :)

This is a very sweet pictures. I really enjoy doodling but mostly for the colours of the markers as my doodles are usually pretty formless.

yay for procrastinating and reading about other people's lives.

FABULOUS! For real! I hate when my mum utilizes the word "PYSCEDELIC" ... but I feel like this TOTALLY DESCRIBES IT. If I were a kid at the library, I'd be mesmerized. Heck, I'm staring at a computer screen and I'm mesmerized! AWESOME WORK GURL.

Congrats on da followerz!

I love the use of colour!

By the way, I feel really stupid asking this but...how to follow you? I'm sure you'd have way more followers if it was easier to work it out...you know, if a genius like me [:C] couldn't work it out, who can! Besides those 50 people but er...yes.

I'm back! Heyho I missed you and your posts! I seriously laughed then made a ridiculous voice for the suspicious bee in your last post (and that dress is ethereally gorrrrgeous). And I really like what's going on here with your artwork (that reminds me, I need to do more of the same, too!). The colors are mesmerizing.

Toast with Charmalade

Yay for blog stalking! :D I do the same for you, don't worry! How do you get a bajillion comments though! That is stellar! And congrats on the 50 followers! I think I have a solid number of followers, but I feel like they rarely "interact" and comment, etc. :S Well, at least I have you! xD

You are such a good artist! :)

Love,
Erin :)
