I Have Defeated NaBloPoMo

Posted by Laurel Green on November 30th, 2009 at 6:45 pm


With this post, I have officially posted for every day this month and have defeated NaBloPoMo. I’d like to thank all of the wonderful internet people, that I’ve met, for being so awesome. This month has been crazy!

I have definitely learned that I can refrain from being lazy, if I try hard enough. I also tried out a lot of new art concepts this month. It was a very good experience.

Here’s to hoping that I win one of the prizes. I’d really like a Sock Zombie.

Circle Explosion

Circle Flower 3

Yeah, that’s right. I’m totally obsessed.

Part of me wants to draft one of these babies and paint it in real life, but it would take a long time to do and it could, quite possibly, drive me insane.

Stop the Insanity

It would take less time to do one that is only eight colours like this one. I have to get some larger transfer paper to pull in off, though. Or, tape my current transfer paper together. Hmmm…

Amigurumi Jellyfish

My original plan for an artsy farting for today was thwarted, so, instead you get this lovely picture of an amigurumi jellyfish that I handcrafted, all on my lonesome, on a dark and stormy night, with no defense against the predators and fiendish elements of the darkness…

Tis truly a cute jellyfish, no?

Anyway, I don’t think I have enough rings on my thumb.

Assorted Insanities of the Past

Posted by Laurel Green on November 8th, 2009 at 5:11 am

I had this project, years ago, where I posted a doodle every day. I only lasted about two weeks and nobody saw any of it.

Anyway, I’ve chosen some of the more insane of the doodles to entertain you.


I have this thing where I find faces on things that shouldn’t have a face absolutely hilarious. Even more-so if those faces are angry.


Monkey in a Jar of Evil, is a character from the margins of my homework in High School.


Hey! You are a carrot! You are not supposed to have a face! Or a gun.


This one’s just cute. I should totally write a children’s book.


Funny story, I drew this one after I had watched an episode of “My Super Sweet 16″. This is how I see those girls.


UFO’s are a growing problem for anthropomorphized flowers.


I drew this one after reading a article about how the Wii was supposed to be dangerous and cause injuries.

Nine Layers

9 layers

I’m still trying to get a handle on this whole “digital art” thing. I’m not so good at manipulating things that I can’t actually touch. I’m sticking to abstracts, right now, because they are easy.

Line Art

Posted by Laurel Green on October 26th, 2009 at 4:18 pm

I was digging through my archives and I found these crazy line drawings that I did years ago.

clover wing wind poot pie

They’re not as crazy as they look. Once you get the hang of “Snap To Grid” you can pop one of these guys out in like 30 minutes. (Click the thumbnails for bigger, if you dare. Muahahah…)

fibonacci3 copy

This one above here is a completely new one that I made yesterday. The hardest part was the Fibonacci Spiral, because it involved taking six circles, chopping them up and attaching them together.
