dirty things

works in progress late one night...
(also posted on my last entry over at my old art blog)

and in an effort to post more of my dirty (=unpolished), in-progress stuff,
here are some sketches from weeks ago :

hopefully i'll be keeping up with sketches/drawings for fun.
one of my main goals this year is to censor less, free & loosen up ideas,
and not be afraid to try and go for it.
hopefully be brave enough to share them, too.


  1. This is exciting! I'm looking forward to seeing more from you.

  5. damns those are some nice sketches,I love the line weights and shapes you use.

    and once more in a different language, Buon Anno Stella!

  6. Happy New Years! Great sketches! I am curious about your use of the words censor and dirty. I ask this because I have your skins on my different laptops and as wallpapers on my cell phone. While on airplanes, when using my one of my laptops, I have gotten nasty comments about the "smut" I am displaying in public. I personally have always told the people it is their minds that are smut and not your artwork. Now I see you using these words and I am curious if you see your art in this vain. I am not accepting what these others are saying and I will continue to display your works proudly. As soon as your shop is set up I will purchase a set of prints and have them framed. I am a big fan who is just curious.

  7. Hoora~y to new blog!
    and hoora~y to your New Year~, and RoqLaRue, and lovely sketches! :D

  8. thank you so much, everyone!!

    ben kelba : oh no, i didn't mean dirty as in "smut" like ways. i meant dirty as in unrefined, unpolished, pre-filtering and editing and cleaning up, in a real process of art kind of way...

    it's a;ways intriguing to hear what people see in artworks, they see what they want to see.
    that's kind of fun though. :)
    thank you again!!
