a horse in a barn

Did a commission for a friend of cover art for his book of poetry. I'm getting paid in bowls of ice cream per hour. Made it with scratchboard and I just edited it a smidge to get that rosy color. I wonder how it'll look with Todd's stuff with it. I wonder what his poetry is like. We dated for one second, I wonder if I'll be referenced :D

my hatroulette.

!!!! Look at this stunning gorgeous etc hat! I found it at a vintage store first picking it up with a giant question mark but then I put it on my head and then it turned into an exclamation mark and then a heart.

I also finished making a simple sack dress that looks horrible if you don't belt it. I accidentally hemmed it too much (note I had no iron at the time.... so someone suggested licking and pounding it. so I did. THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID HYUCK HYUCK) so it just falls right off me. So I had to put scarf and vest over so my nana-nana's wouldn't spill all over the place.
Hung out my friend Jon and with the innnerweb aka the sensation Chatroulette. This guy had an impressive basement full of action figures.

This is what you get 90% of the time. Dicks left and right. Jon and I are pretending to be really into it.
Or 16 year olds asking to show them your titties. Rull charming.

planning to be a hep sailor

I went to this place called SCRAP in bayshore/hunter's point in San Francisco where I got tons and tons of hell of sick fabric. All together for only 5 buckeroonies! What a steal! So I want to start sewing more of me own clothes again.
Bought this pattern Etsy. I think I'll make a couple of cute dresses with this pattern. The sailor scout in my heart will never die.
One dress will be out of this velvety fabric and the collar will be the same material with just plain black.
I don't know if I'll necessarily use that lacy flowery fabric on the sailor dress but it will be this color scheme with one of those reds as the collar.

Have no idea what to do with this bb, but I couldn't pass it up.
