my first time


(click image to enlarge)

i’ve been staying up late drawing for my show at compound gallery in portland (opening november 1st). i’ve done 13 drawings so far. i only started drawing for this show at the end of september, so i’ve had to work pretty hard, for a change. i think i’m going to submit 9 or 10 of them to be included in the show.

this is my favorite of my new drawings. it’s called “my first time”.

iron deficiency (final version)

it needed more veins…

i wanted this girl to look stoned, but i’ve never been stoned before so it’s hard for me to imagine the feeling. she ended up just looking sleepy — a feeling i know very well.

i need more practice.

since i got pregnant, i can hear my pulse clearer than ever, and my veins have been growing all over me. i can see my veins running across my skin so clearly, they’re like a tattoo. i don’t have any tattoos on my body, but i’m enjoying looking at my temporary tattoo.
