Most of My Fantasies Are Tasty

this is Cloud from Final Fantasy. when i typed his filename into this post, i accidentally spelled it "fantasty", only to realize that i had also made that exact typo when creating the image. so now i think fantasty should be a word. it's when you have dreams about an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Get Out of the Rain

A Cat Plus Rock or Pop or Country or Electro or Spoken Word or Something

forgot to post yesterday! i was distracted because two of my friends had birthdays yesterday so i was forced to have fun at two different events. here's today's along with the one i should have shown you while i was busy celebrating.

this cat is pretty pittsburgh.

this is my rendition of New Order's album cover for their album, "Technique". i didn't listen to the music before painting this. that's kind of crappy but not as crappy as if i was the original designer.  i guess if i ever illustrate a book or whatever, i'll make sure i read it first.

Miró Would Have Done One In My Style Too

this request was for something in the style of joan miró. he was a famous spanish painter. i'm a painter who's last name means "spanish" in italian and i'm on the internet. we're basically the same person.

Bunny Rabbit. Or Rabbit Bunny?

i've painted seven bunnies (by themselves. this stat doesn't include bunnies with other things.) this is my first rabbit. after a googling, i found out that bunnies and rabbits are the same thing. so my filenames are not sensical. except that i called him a rabbit because he's the first one i've painted from a photograph. so there you go, english. change your definitions.

bunny: an idealized rabbit depicted from one's memory
rabbit: a bunny painted from life

Big Can Still Be Cute. Plus Practical

i thought the mars curiosity rover was a cute little guy but it turns out it's the size of a car. well ok, he can still be my pet. and now he's a pet that can give me rides places.

Gotta Paint 'Em All

i used to play pokémon in middle school. there were 151 back then. now there are 718. i'm glad they keep making more or i'd run out of things to paint.

My Brush Is Pretty Much in Charge of Me

this request was for a 747 jet but i'm pretty sure it accidentally came out a toy airplane. don't tell the guy that got it.

Which Came First, the Sloth or the Donut?

i'm not sure if sloths like donuts or if this guy became a sloth after eating so many.

It Seems Harder Than Ever for Him to Fit in That Ball

Turns Out I'm More Lazy Than Angry

this is the cover of a Rage Against the Machine album. sort of. check out the original below. i painted the grey background first. then when i went to paint the black outline, i accidentally had the canvas turned incorrectly. if you look closely, you'll see mine matches the original much better if the background is rotated 90 degrees clockwise. it's pretty subtle but not to me. i was so mad when i realized immediately after finishing. but not mad enough to throw it out and start over. still, every time i look at it i get angry at myself. i'm hoping venting about it on my blog will help. i'm also hoping that the guy that got the painting doesn't read this. sorry i sent you screwed up art.

Spend All Day Making Stuff That Doesn't Exist

i've never played minecraft but it seems pretty darn popular on teh internetz. as someone that majored in sculpture in college and someone that did 3D modeling in a past career, i feel i would like the game. as someone that cares about efficient use of my time, i feel i would hate the game.

Bending Reality in the Most Dull Way Possible

Was the Dragon the Dad or the Mom?

dragonflies are scientific marvels. i'm not sure how this thing's parents ever made it happen. what with the size difference and all.

This Is in the Bible

gah! have you Google image searched kiwi birds? they're so darn cute, it's insane. i'm pretty sure god made kiwis and then said, "crap there's too much adorable in the world. i'll have to make octopuses." then he said, "dang, these things are really ugly. i'll give them an abundance of limbs to make up for it."

I Hope My Site Doesn't Get Indexed as Porn

The Cat Insulted Him Back in Meows

We Make Sacrifices for People We Love

this is for one of my good friends from college. she was there when i first started this project. she knows i get tons of pet requests. she knows i might not be the happiest about fulfilling pet requests. she had me paint her pet. it's cool. she knows i know she knows she's a crazy dog lady. though, i won't be so forgiving when she has me paint her first kid.

Wearing a Coat of Arms Undermines the Second Amendment

this is the coat of arms from sir terry pratchett's discworld. "coat of arms" sounds like two articles of clothing meant to help where a vest falls short.

Probably in the Wrong Profession

i'm guessing whisking doesn't come easily for him. he definitely can't put on his own chef hat.

A Poker Face Is Easier Sans Brows
