May the best woman win.



In lieu of the greatest show to grace the overrated and so obnoxiously vapid world of cable television, I have been living my life under the words of one of my most influential heroes and current muse for EVERYTHING I DO, RuPaul. I absorb every word that comes out of her mouth, in hopes of growing a penis so I can tuck it between my legs and live fabulously. I'm kidding. I hope this show goes on for at least another one hundred seasons, as long as there's a token young, spunky Asian queen on the show that goes to the top three, and loses to the token Caucasian veteran queen who loses to the tall, hardship-enduring queen of African descent. Yes, I love this show. I love it so much.
For those of you who haven't seen the second season, token Caucasian veteran top three queen, Raven rags on skinny, not very lady-like Nicole Paige Brooks from Atlanta, Georgia for having acrylic toenails...
This is Raven.

This is Nicole Paige Brooks, from Atlanta Georgia. Imagine acrylic toenails on a man's foot. That's probably what Nicole Paige Brooks, from Atlanta, Georgia's toes look like. I looked everywhere for a video clip of aforementioned ragging, but no such luck was had.
So last night, I came across a whole box of acrylic finger nails, compliments of my beauty/cosmetics  savvy roommate. Needless to say, it works. & it looks quite... awesome.

 I don't have the most beautiful toes in the world. But I bet they look better than Nicole Paige Brooks from Atlanta, Georgia.

I really hope someone recognizes my innate, god-given nail technician skills.

Please excuse my language.

The last time I posted was considerably long ago, but it was of great importance and rightfully deserved recognition. Things deserving of your recognition have happened since! But today, I finally have time and energy to put forth into the upkeep of this endeavor I started so long ago and abandoned.

ABANDONMENT NO MORE! The summer has begun. Let the time for wasting time begin.

I have made it a point to draw a lot over the next several months. I really want to get better by drawing more still life subject matter and less focus on women with no eyes and rib cages. I thought I would have the time to sit down and draw all day, but I forgot that I have to attend my internship five days a week. Not getting paid for hundreds, maybe thousands, of hours of work is truly exhausting. But this is so worth it. She is so fucking cool. I can't take it. More on that later. Or maybe never. Hmmm???

My very good friends whom I never get to see became "real people" and had a baby last year. OLIVE! <3 It was her first birthday a couple weeks ago. I'm broke as hell. So I thought I'd be real clever and so presumptuous as to illustrate a child I've only seen once, frame it and expect them to hang it on their wall? I am an asshole. A broke as hell asshole. People always say it's nice to give gifts that you created with your own hands and talent or whatever. So whatever. You could either be an unoriginal bastard with money or a broke, smug fuck. No one wins.
