Side note...

Aside from my project (ugh), I did manage to finish my sister's commission for birthday cards.*
The first one is for her boyfriend, so it matches an earlier card I made for her. here.
And the other one is for her other friend, and I really like drawing afros.

*not really, it's more like pay back for driving me around.


SO this is the first piece in a series (there's going to be 3 more.... 4 is the minimum requirement).

I know it's only 8.5 x 11, but I felt carpel tunnel spreading through my hand and my eye sight slipping away as I slaved over this this piece with a .005 and .01 micron pen.
I'm really regretting this as my final project, but there's no going back. Even after I was done, everything looked like the scribbles of a crazy person. I put basic colors to help organize sections but I'll have to worry about coloring it later.

I have to do 3 more. oh-my-GOD!

I also still have to pack for Japan. I give up. I'm going back to reading The Man who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. Then I can think things like...oh well at least I don't have a phantom limb or Tourettes.
