PostHeaderIcon Chocolate Mint Swirl Snail of Foowishi

The very rare Chocolate Mint Swirl Snail slowly plods it’s way through the mystical forests of Foowishi, a planet very far and distant from our own.  These little creatures emit high levels of mint scent and as a result, taste utterly horrid to the local population of predators.

I have this sweet tooth when it comes to anything mint.  Peppermint, spearmint, you name it, it is delicious to me. One day, after indulging in a delicious lunch at a local restaurant, I partook in their basket of after dinner mints they had placed near the door.  Picking up the small, plastic wrapped edible object, I took note that it wasn’t made like the standard red and white round mints and these ones had a spiral shape to them.  An idea popped into my head, and I knew I had to do a fusion of snail and food.

Chocolaty escargot perhaps? Hmm… that would be kinda gross.

Incedently, I have my website up and running now if in case people are watching me here.
Pretty much all you see here will be there, and then some.  Blogspot just wasn't going to cut it in terms of having a portfolio, and wordpress just seemed like it would be more in league with my needs. :)

PostHeaderIcon Sand Eel

Sand eel chasing down prey.  When I was walking in Garden of the Gods, there was a rock formation that could either be interpreted as a penis or an eel head.  Rather than allowing my brain to slip and slid it’s way down into the gutter more than necessary, I decided to go the eel route.  Since the park location is rather arid in climate, I decided to go ahead and do the creature in a similar environment.  Doesn’t quite communicate what I was going at, and for the life of me I still can’t figure out how’d that giant beast would be floating.  Perhaps those things it eats gives it colossal gas to the point that it floats. :P

I really should find a sketchbook that has a midtone already established.  Would take less time doing these build ups and perhaps I could finish a piece while on my lunch hour.

About the Artist

I'm a chick that just likes to draw. I try hard to be a decent artist, but hey, no one's perfect. This blog is just a repository of various ideas, sketches, drawings, or work in progress images that I've done. Why read this silly description? Just look at the art! ;)
