"I found that you can’t play ball in skirts, I tried. I wore a skirt over my bloomers– and nearly broke my neck…Finally I was forced to discard it, and now I always wear bloomers.- but made so wide that the fullness gives a skirtlike effect”
———-
While looking at Edwardian clothing on Pinterest, I came across a photograph of a woman named Alta Weiss. I really enjoyed reading her story of being a famous ball player in 1907 where people called her "Girl Wonder". I kind of connected with her me being a softball player, so I captured her on paper. I can’t imagine wearing heavy skirts like that while taking a dive for a ball! 
Check her out for yourself!

"Not goodbye, but see you later!" 
I knew once September would roll around that I would be missing my SCAD friends more than anything in the world. Around this time, we would be getting ready to go to Monty and have all kind of shenanigans! I doodled this the day after we were all together at Lulu’s. Our group hug really meant a lot to me because even though we held each other so close, I prayed that distance would never keep us apart. Greg, Jordan, Paige, Laura,….you guys mean so much to me and I miss being with you everyday! <3

"&#8230;..yes that is definitely from V for Vendetta."
Because I listen to movie soundtracks all the time, I always get distracted when films play different movie scores during the trailers. When I do figure out what soundtrack it&#8217;s from, the trailer is already over. That also happens when I see a familiar actor/actress and try to figure out what other movie they were in.

Boy that cold medicine the doctor prescribed to me knocked my clocks out! 
&#8212;&#8212;
This is the reason I haven&#8217;t kept up to date with my drawing challenge. For almost 2 weeks I had bronchitis and a sinus infection. So I needed to rest after I went to the doctor. Hopefully I&#8217;ll continue the challenge once I am better! :)

My mom bought me a dress yesterday and I absolutely adore it! It&#8217;s so long and flowing. I love the little hot air balloons all over the fabric. It reminds me of a 1950s dress! :)

Day 1: Yourself
Hey where did my shirt go? lol
I felt like taking the 30 day drawing challenge just so I can update my tumblr more often and make some pretty pictures. We&#8217;ll see how that goes! I cut my hair super short for the first time and I love it! :D

-Dedicated to the memory of Robin Williams-
I&#8217;ve never really cried for the death of someone famous in my life, but the loss of Robin Williams hit me really hard. Losing him affected me because I realized how big of an impact he was in my childhood. His movies were constantly running in my vhs player. Hook, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, Jack, Flubber, Bicentennial Man, and of course Aladdin. Someday, I hope to show the happiness you gave me as a child and share it with my future children. 
You&#8217;ve been a huge inspiration to me and I&#8217;ll deeply miss you. 
"Genie,&#8230;you&#8217;re free!"

“In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories.”

 I had a wee bit of a Law &amp; Order SVU marathon on Netflix can’t you tell?  lol
I felt like making some fan art so I drew my favorite characters from the show.  
 Top row left to right-  Elliot Stabler, Olivia Benson, Fin Tutuola, John Munch
Bottom row left to right- Melinda Warner, Casey Novak, Don Cragen, George Huang
 (Also it blew my mind that the actor who plays George Huang voiced Shang from Mulan! D: I thought he sounded familiar!)

 Forgot to tell my followers that I graduated with honors from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
My how 4 years flew by so quickly. I’m so blessed and thankful that I went to SCAD. The people I met there changed me and made me stronger as individual and an artist. I learned to have confidence in myself and as well in my artwork. There was happiness throughout my journey and sorrow, especially losing both of my grandfathers though out that time. I’ll probably miss my professors the most. They helped broaden my horizons and helped me grow as an artist and an animator. I’ll miss the deep and meaningful conversations we had or just simply saying hello and catching up in the hallway. My friends there taught me what true friendship is. In my heart I hope some day in the future we will be together again and have all kind of fun shenanigans like we did at our animation building. I’m so thankful to have known such an awesome group of wonderful, funny, and talented people.
And now to finish my college reflection with my senior quote from high school (with some minor tweaks)….*ahem* “To the class of 2014,  ‘Make each day count.&#8217; If you need me, I’ll be drawing in (insert place/state/country here) with my corgis.” Some things I guess never change!
 (PS- My high school self is bit tanner because I was a softball player. Where my college self is a wee bit pale because of the lack of windows in my Animation building. Also my senior film kept me from going outside. lol)

Ahhhh my film is done!!! (gotta tweak the sound though) A big special thanks to Madeline for being the best producer in the whole wide world! And a big shout out to Greg for being always being next to me (literally) and being my Monty &#8220;boyfriend&#8221;. You and I got our ginormous films done together! I wanted to draw this yesterday but because of these two nitwits (Cora and Mattie), I had my first all nighter of my SCAD career (*gasp*) I learned so much about myself working on this film and I cherished every single moment in the process. Here&#8217;s to getting in the senior showcase! (PS- Zozzled is 1920&#8217;s slang for being drunk)

Thought I post a few images of the chalk artwork my friend Alex and I did at the Savannah Sidewalk Arts Festival. It was my first time participating and I had a blast! She made a collage of cats while I made a collage of dogs. :)

To commemorate the 102nd anniversary of the sinking of the RMS TITANIC, I decided to draw the moment when I first discovered about the tragic event that happened so many years ago. 
I was in the third grade in 2000. I was walking around in the library of my elementary school when I came across a book called &#8220;Polar the Titanic Bear&#8221;. Something about the book struck a chord in me about a little boy and his stuffed toy polar bear and their trip on the TITANIC. I wanted to know more about this ship and the people onboard and what happened to them. From there, I would read every TITANIC book I could find. 
The stories about TITANIC has touched my life and in some way has touched yours as well. It&#8217;s what inspired me to be an artist and to be a little historian about this famous liner. The passion still grows in me and will continue to do so for years to come.

   
1912-2014
To all the passengers and crew, may you all rest in peace.

 Greg and I always hang out with each other especially when we&#8217;re working on the computer! So we joked about what we would look like fused together like in DBZ- thus Taygory was born!
He has his face, my hair, my legs, his torso with my girls! lol
