Gnomes In Their Natural Habitat:
An article by Sarah Bosserman, Gnome Expert
Often times the rural Gnome can be found cloud hunting. Cloud hunting gnome-style consist of 1 net, and hours of kicking, flinging and giggling fun. Many a time they have been known to climb tall hills and leap wildly for a particularly fluffy cloud. Once caught, the little creatures display the pink, yellow and white clouds on fire place mantles, eager to rouse the jealousy of a neighbor. Gnomes are a very competitive species.
Here are some sketches I drew while observing them in their natural environment.
On another note, a large crow convention consisting of thousands of our feathered friends was spotted on the edge of a sky way.

On August 19th I turned 19!
Although it was a little sad being away from all my friends in Washington (STATE)
my family pulled double time to make it special. My mom took me shopping at the biggest flipping mall I've ever seen. When they say Texas big they mean it! I bought a necklace pocket watch that really works, a ruby red lace dress, an Apache inspired scarf a pair of soft skinny jeans and a red tulle skirt. ahhhhh.. for me shopping is a sport. The seeking, spotting, then pouncing on the half price rack to grab the holy grail of finds to wave in the air all the way to the cash register. The thrill of the hunt.
After a day of hunting ( shopping) in my favorite store H&M and Forever21 we surprised my dad (his birthday is two days before mine) and took him out to a Hibachi grill where they cook your food at your table! IT was incredible! They threw eggs in the air, caught them in their hats, made 5 foot towers of fire and performed dangerous knife tricks! I think the table next to us lost some face hair when their cook got a little carried away with the fire.
So over all it was a lovely birthday and my family really pulled through.
I really love those guys!
Here's how Liam my nerdy friend is coming along, and below him are some after birthday photos.
My dad bought me the special edition 758 page Vogue and my favorite dark chocolate.
What a great guy huh??

Whenever I see a visually striking movie I have an uncontrollable erg to draw when I get home.
After I saw Pirates of the Caribbean 4 I sat down on my blow up mattress (our furniture is still in Washington from the move) grabbed a sharpie, box of crayons and went to work. Half an hour later this mermaid showed up. I think she is pretty good for working from memory.
Anyways, it was a good excuse to draw something fairy-tale-ish.

How's your weekend going?
We've been searching high and low for cool artsy neighborhoods in the Dallas Fort Worth area. After moving from Washington (STATE) to Texas we suddenly realized "Wait, people with huge beards, odd coffee houses and bizarre art isn't normal?". It was a bit of a shock. However, my family and I found a cute place called Bishop Street near downtown Dallas. It has specialty chocolate shops, vintage clothing, locally made clothing, funky art galleries, fantastic restaurants and best of all... not a rhinestoned pink cowgirl hat in sight!
Here are a few pictures of bishop street, and other bit of coolness we discovered.

This is my new painting, his name is Liam and he is head inventor at Togles & Co.
I was inspired to make this goggle wearing genius after spotting someone int he background of a youtube video. He was wearing goggles. At Walmart.

I'm finally back to posting and making art!
We still don't have Internet connection at our new apartment though.
What a pity... so off to Starbucks we go!
This is a half finished but new painting I'm working on.
This regally yet bright bird is none other than King Edward of Lonely Isles. He is the soul
ruler of his 4 island country (all shown in picture). His kingdom is positioned somewhere in the southern Hemisphere between Sierra Leone and Venezuela. The eccentric ruler bides his time by
sending letters (via bottles) to his numerous pen pals around the globe. he is also avid in collecting many pretty strings, jewels and bobbles to decorate his fanciful plumage from the odd sailor that may visit his island kingdom, as payment to cross his bit of sea of course.
Since I have left all my art contacts and buyers in Washington State since moving to Texas, I'm now offering my art to buy straight from this blog. After a piece is finished, I'll post the price, size, medium and my e-mail address for any who are in the slight interested.
Stay Artsy, More is to come in this illustrated mind set of art :)
