Run Away Nugget

I can't remember the joke. A couple of weeks ago, my co-worker was eating nuggets and something happen which made her say something like "run away nugget" or "nugget bandit". I turned around and started drawing a nugget bandit. I told myself I would add a cop chasing it later. I didn't add the cop and background until yesterday and now I can't remember why I started drawing it in the first place. I'm teasing my brother for turning 30 and yet I am losing my beautiful memory. :(

Making Progress

Almost done with the portfolio. This is what I was working on last night while watching the Olympics and falling asleep. Yeah I know she has big eyes. I thing that is my thing, draw people with big eyes. Anyway, it is not done. I can't wait to be done. Well, you are never finished with your portfolio. At least I wont have someone on my back riding me to get it done.

So Did You Hear the Joke About ...

We had to take a mandatory online harassment course which took about 2 hours out of our day. I understand it is needed to let everyone know the differences between good, questionable, and bad conduct. But most of the examples were so out there, theatrical and over the top. For example. There was a scene where they had an illustration of an office and there were different things scattered around the office and you had to decide if it was good, questionable or bad. They showed a list on the fridge that said something like "Signs you are a Bad leader: you wear a bra, you don't wear short skirts, you have monthly mood swings". There was one more item but I forgot what it was. WTF?!! lol mellowbeing and I kept saying during the training "what?!", "OMG" or just laughing. There were many parts you could not skip and the instructor kept talking and talking. During that time I was chatting with anomaa or drawing. There was a quiz at the end and I got a perfect score. I told mellowbeing I was going to take a screen shot and put it up on facebook, to show how awesome I am. Lol

Primary Focus

Yeah I know I suck because I stopped updating this blog. I will continue, its just that I have so many things on my mind and I have artist block. Not to mention I think I might have missed the deadline to get my portfolio in for grad school so they can assign me the appropriate classes. So I been forcing myself to finish up my portfolio last week and this weekend. I wanted it to be done by the middle of July. Actually, the Admission Rep said he would contact me again in two weeks, which was the middle of July. Ha! That didn't happen. Then I wanted to be done before August hit. Heh. I am about 70% done, but that is not good enough. Below is one of the drawings I've been working on.

Yes it is still a drawing that is part of the problem and it is not even a finished drawing because there is more stuff I want to add to it. Plus I am deciding if I will color it in using pencils, or scan it and color it using photoshop. Either way I'm still not done.
I would try and spend today working on my portfolio but my mom is going away and wants to see her kids before she leaves. So I have to troop my way up to The Bronx today. Le sigh ...
