Lauren Bacall + Boy In Puberty= My Voice Right Now

Painting background studies for a class, tah-dah.


The happiest day of my life. I love this book, now I can play HOME, HOME ON THE RANGE! WHERE THE DEER.......ok I'll stop.


Ode to the only two colors I've been seeing the past few days.


Doing forty-five caricatures is harder than I thought. These are for Senior Show 2008, oh god- will I finish in time on top of my side jobs and homework for seven classes???!!! Unlikely! Hahahaha..... oh god. If I had more time to investigate ech head I could make 'em more cartoony, but at this point all I'm concerned with is: a) people not hating me for making them funny looking, and b) getting them all done in time.




A friend of mine took this photograph in Arizona a while back. PRETTY COOL.


Thanks everyone in the last post who wished me well- this is the nasiest flu I've had in years, and it's still kicking me around like a rag doll.

At least the flu isn't affecting your drawing skill ( which is top of the form as per usual ).

Snot is an unusal color, no?

Great wonderful and amazing as always, Kali. Forgot to mention, get over to a bulk herb store or not, and get yourself some Tumeric. It will cure all. Roast a spoonful of it on a plate on the stove and mix it into a hot cup of water. It's not easy to taste but it will work wonders. Got rid of pneumonia a month back. Cheers.

Drink boiled water with Lemmon juice mixed in, since it can clear the nostrils, and it helps sooth the throat. Also, make sure you get plenty of rest, but don’t stay in bed all of the time; go out and pump some blood in the old ticker.

Hope it helps, and get well.

P.S. Who doesn’t love giant statues of Dinosaurs?

These are amazing, you've done it again!! I want to hang out in those backgrounds.

It almost looks like the velociraptor on the right went "HHHHNNNNNGGGG" and shat that giant tree log behind it.

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

Nice caricatures! I was going to say get well, but really you should try to stay sick just a day longer so you can record a song in that raspy voice. Sleep near a draught and DON'T TAKE COLD PILLS!

Sean Worsham said...

You're sick because of the amount of work and stress as well probably. Hope you feel better soon, your work is getting better and better. Wish you could've extended your term for 1 more year and did 4 classes per semester instead :/. It woudl've been less stressful.

Hope things are ok nonetheless.

Jorge Garrido said...

The painting at the top is awesome, and the caricatures are great, too! By the way, your current display pic with the Sody shirt is awesome, when I first saw it I stared at it for like five minutes. I love the way your eyes are squinty as you smile, it's so happy. I usually hate happiness but in that picture it actually looks appealing.

Jorge Garrido said...

Oh, and like the old song goes:

"Get well, get well soon, we wish you to get well!"

"THAT'S NOT EVEN A SONG!"

Kali Fontecchio said...

"I usually hate happiness but in that picture it actually looks appealing."

Thanks Jorge! What a sweet thing to say! :p :p :p
