New Home for my Blog!!!

Hey everyone! I wanted to let you know I've migrated to a new server to host my blog. I'm not going to be posting anything new on Blogger anymore.

Instead, you can keep up to date with my lastest here at my new blog, "Ninny Notes":

Scott, the Blogger Writer!

I put together ANOTHER "quick" sketch of Scott for him to display on his blog. Scott took up journalism (a major at one time), during his Penn State college years, and loves to write, so I decided to throw this together for a sorta Happy V-Day gift!

Of course, he can put whatever he wants on the paper.

If you click on Sullivan's blog to the right, you will be able to check out his site. However, I do not know when he will edit this image within his blog, but soon! :)

A Red Character!

I scribbled out a fat character on paper this time, trying to work more with my mixed media.
It looks like he is wrapped in gauze. :)

Brushing up my Characters!

I'm having such a busy week, but I am doing my best to keep up with my SS homework assignments. Here is "one" of my characters in the beginning developing stages.

Another ...younger me?

A brunette me!

I was doing research for Silver's class and I came across this photo of a girl, who really caught my eye! She looked so much like me in my younger years, but with darker features. I wish I had more of a straight on shot of my younger face to show, but this photo (at 24 yrs old) was all I could find to come close enough. I could not believe how this girl resembled me during my years at her age (late teens/20's).

Also, I find it uncanny that her one eye squints more than other, when she smiles, which my son makes fun about ME, when I do this in MY photos.

Her nose is exact...even the face structure and chin, lighter big eyes, dark arched eyebrows. Wow! I wonder if she is my long lost sister! :)

UPDATE: I found contact and name to the photo (Megan). I emailed her and she was delighted to hear from me, along with saying our similarities are quite eerie.

As we conversed back and forth, we found that both of our mothers have a dose of Welsh and English in our blood. Our differences are with the father's side, she is Hispanic and I am Italian/Lithuanian.

This stuff fascinates me and even when I draw live, I like to think about the nationality of the person I am drawing! Sometimes I guess on their nationality, and at times I am right on, but other times I like to question the person, so I can learn and study their anatomy features.

Color Paper and Pencils!

I made a recent purchase of all types of assorted colored paper, pencils and more and tried a very distorted cartoon attempt on my son. This is far from being finished and I plan to dabble some more with media, but my goal is to experiment, trying mixed medias and such, along with creating funny cartoons.

Wish me luck, cuz I need it!
