  • I’m drawing Robin Williams stuff all day, and there’s no one who is stopping me. Plus Sketch Dailies gave me permission!

    I would like to sell the finished pieces to raise money for something in his honor. Maybe St Jude because he was such a big advocate for helping the children. I will keep you all posted!

    I want to draw something that will help make me feel better…but how in the world do you sum up Robin Williams in one image?.. You just can’t. I find myself sitting here staring at a blank page with a heavy heart and a million memories streaming through my mind.

    You will always be a brilliant source of inspiration for me. Thank you for a childhood full of magic.

    Rest In Peace to one hell of a person, you will clearly never be forgotten.

    My MacGyver Fashion Shoot

    CLIENT: Sassy Images, for their new Boutique Collection
    Was asked to model feature clothing inspired by my selfie-based wing tattoo series for a little online promoting. Meant to provoke sexiness, while keeping the focus on the items themselves and not the face. Letting my lips and clavicle do all the work :P
    ROLE: Model, Photog, Post Retouching/ Design
    TOOLS: Iphone 4 + self timer, Easel, 1 Desk lamp, 1 Pair of blue sheer panties for light filter, Photoshop. 
    LOCATION: Sitting on my bed.

    BAM! See why I’m like MacGyver?!

    Note to self: get new phone or spring for a real camera cause… damn. Working with low quality images is like pulling your own teeth. BUT that being said, pretty happy with the outcome & I like them small. Ready to get back to illustrating tho ^,^

    Photoshop OCD = 1 | Deni = 0

    Being a perfectionist with my work makes me so angry sometimes.


    It makes me want to punch myself in the face. I’m tired… I don’t want to keep tweaking and refining the five hundred and twelfth layer for the umpteenth time. But I just…can’t..stooop.





    With much sadness, it was announced that Studio Ghibli will be shutting down its animation production department. Their films have been some of my favorites, and their characters have inspired me since childhood. Here’s to them and the wonderful stories they have given us.

    On August 3, 2014, Toshio Suzuki of Studio Ghibli announced that the production studio would take a “brief pause” (小休止) in order to reevaluate and restructure in the wake of Miyazaki’s retirement. He stated some concerns about where the company would go in the future.[17] He did not, as some sources reported, announce the closing of the studio. This mistake was made by a Tumblr user who was then taken as a credible source by multiple news media sites.[18]
