New Artwork: Micah Giannelli

2minxinx artGuess who’s been busting her ass on this website lately? That’s right, your girl. In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a new homepage, a new header, and my portfolio is getting an upgrade as well. Mhmm, I told you, I’ve been on my shit. Oh, and yes, that’s all my handwriting that you see all over the place, my chicken scratch. It was time to add some personality to the place.
Making all these changes is time consuming, and if you’re going to do something, you might as well do it right. Even though I’ve been focusing on the small details of the site to make navigation easier, that doesn’t mean my artwork gets tossed to the side.

This piece is inspired by @micahgianneli and I couldn’t be any prouder of it. I really took my time with this one. Every lunch break, I had my ipad in my hands (and a sandwich in the other). Fashion bloggers are always fun to draw. They’re so put together and the color coordination just wakes up all the brain storming cells in my brain. Her faux fur coat was tricky, but I liked adding all the layers and dimensions to it.

But can we talk about her face?
I am soooo jealous. Why is it that I could never do my makeup this perfect? I look like a hot ass mess when putting on foundation, so why is it that my drawings are better contoured than I am!? (starts binge watching tutorials on Youtube)sig
