New Artwork| Without a Voice

Sometimes I forget to post new work, so irresponsible of me, I know.

This piece titled ” Without a Voice”  was something I actually did fairly quickly. She was something simple, demure and showed enough emotion without exaggeration. When I was done painting her, I noticed she looked asian, which I was pretty happy with and had no intent on doing. I’ve painted many latinas and women of color. This time I had something new to add to the mix, and this is just the beginning.

Desirables: June 2015 Wants

1  |  2  |  3  |  4   |  5  |  6  |  7  |  8  |  9

This month of June is all about easy living, keeping it simple and being effortlessly amazing. Sometimes you just want to throw something on and just head out the door, that’s why I’ve been craving over one piece clothing. I saw these cute olive green overalls online and was wishing I had them in my closet. I could throw those on with a t and some chucks and boom, I’m done. I could even pair them with heels if I want to spice it up a bit.

That yellow gown has me in awe… but really, where would I ever wear that thing?

My main focus right now is growing my beautiful curls. I want them to be longer, so I don’t always look like I just came out of the disco era with my fro. Once they start going a little past my shoulders I think I’ll be good money, I’ve been using a lot of coconut and castor oil, and I think it’s making a huge difference. My hair looks so much healthier, and I’ve also noticed that my roots have been growing at a faster speed. Yes, the maintenance to keep the blond going strong is annoying, but at least I’m seeing results. I actually decided to take step 1 into being a grown up and bought vitamins this week. Omega 3’s and coconut oil pills. Let’s hope they work for the better!

I’m constantly thinking about how I should switch up my room, something I also do because I tend to get bored so quickly. I’ve only been at my apartment for 2 years and half and I promise you, I have ran out of options. My bed has made it to every single wall in my bedroom. I’ve been trying to keep things neat, but let’s face it, I’m a pig. Aren’t artists usually messy anyway? These little cute storage boxes seem like something I’m definitely going to invest in. Maybe they’ll at least keep all of my bobby pins in order.

New Body Art: Cyn City

2minxinxYou guys know exactly what I’m good for… and painting on boobs has always been one of my best qualities. ha! How many people can say that?

I got to finally meet and add some pigment on the cutesy Cynthia, she started off a bit shy but was ready and willing for whatever. Just like I like it, and I guess that’s what the camera loves too, because she ended up looking amazing. Of course David Zayas Jr. was behind the lens, and Rachell worked her makeup skills for a nice, sweet smokey touch.  When I saw how full Cyn’s boobs were, I knew I had to go big when it came to the hair, go big or go right guys!? Using about 5 different shades of pink, I worked on her curls, and Cyn’s final product turned out just how I wanted, right in your face! Check out some more from her set.

See ya next time!

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted up new body art for you guys.

This time I had the awesome Alejandra, Rabiii0sa, to you guys, join in on the fun.

She was so great to work with, painting her was a snap, and after picking on her for a few, a few beers loosen her up enough to relax in front of the camera.

Since her, Q and I are all friends it was too funny catching up.

This was also Q’s first time watching me paint someone completely nude.

Yes, he’s been with me to a few shows, but nothing beat having time and privacy.

Sometimes the rush of an audience makes you hurry.

So this was a first time for him, and he can’t complain, since he got to see some boobs that aren’t mine and not get in trouble for it!

hahahaha.

I also worked with Madame Julievet for this shoot, since she’s been wanting to expand her makeup portfolio,

and what better way to experiment than to do crazy shoots with me!

I hope you guys enjoy this set, and don’t forget that artwork is always up for sale, so don’t feel shy.

Shoot me an email (2mininx@gmail.com ) and let’s talk details.

I sell canvases, design tattoos, draw mini versions of you, make tutus, and much more.

or book me for a live performance

Read my F&Q for any additional questions, if you’re still timid, maybe your questions is already answered.

Until next time guys, Enjoy!

I started this piece knowing of course I wanted to give her that touch of rock n roll, which I usually do, but I wanted to an element of girly…

and what’s more girly than a tutu!?

I gave her a green tutu, which glows in the dark by the way, and a chick grey striped leather jacket…. vroom.3

Even though she has a cig in between those lips, there’s something about her face that makes her seem so content, slightly smiling.

Here’s the end result, I hope you guys like!

What Would Barbie Look Like As an Average Woman?

The full name of the first doll was Barbie Millicent Roberts, from Willows, Wisconsin. Barbie’s job was that of teenage fashion model. However, the doll has been made in versions connected to over 125 different careers.

The first Barbie was sold for $3. Additional clothing based on the latest runway trends from Paris were sold, costing from $1 to $5. In the first year (1959), 300,000 Barbie dolls were sold. Today, a mint condition “#1″ (1959 Barbie doll) can fetch as much as $27,450. To date, over 70 fashion designers have made clothes for Mattel, using over 105 million yards of fabric.

Barbie 5

There has been some controversy over Barbie Doll’s figure when it was realized that if Barbie was a real person her measurements would be an impossible 36-18-38. Barbie’s “real” measurements are 5 inches (bust), 3 ¼ inches (waist), 5 3/16 inches (hips). Her weight is 7 ¼ ounces, and her height is 11.5 inches tall.

Here is my newest  artwork titled  “Floater”

This piece is definitely a little something different than you guys are used to, coming from me at least. I decided not to focus as much on the curves of her hips, but more on her collarbones,  her exaggerated lips and squinted eyes.

 I really love how her lips came out, if you look closely you can see the darker stripes in her pout, it’s almost as if you want to hand her some chapstick. I wanted her nose to be tiny and awkward and though I’m mostly known for the cat eyes, which she does have, I wanted her be squinting, happily, with force.

She reminds me of a balloon that you let go and all it manages to do is flap around in the sky.

 I guess that why I named her Floater.

I hope you guys like her, let me know what you think, comment below or find me on :
