Maude Macher, Dumb Dumb Duck, Joanna Newsom And Jimmy Page Too

Like this drawing? Get it on a shirt here:

Lately I've been obsessed with Joanna Newsom, she's this unique singer who plays the harp (among other things). I started listening to her in '04 when my friend Sean over at KXLU gave her music to me thinking I would enjoy it, he was right!

She's super pretty, I'm going to do some better drawings of her that are less boring and more fun later!

Soon I'm going to revisit my first year of high school by drawing another Ode To Jimmy Page. I was in love with him for like two years. Often, I go in and out of obsessions with music, and this one is no exception. I used to get up every morning at like 6 am before school and watch Jimmy's solo in Song Remains The Same during Dazed and Confused memorizing his solo on guitar with the bow. It was bad for my Les Paul which I covered in resin. I miss that guitar T____T.

But for here's some drawing I did when I was 13-14 and super obsessed with him. My dad still has the one drawing I did of him downing a bottle of Jack Daniels, he used to show it to his friends all proud like, "my daughter likes Zeppe and drew this!"

Ain't She Sweet

We've been watching a ton of early Betty cartoons lately, and my fascination with her has overwhelmed me once more! It's been a couple of years since I was doodling her, I stopped for a while because I was just drawing her all wiggly and weird. The early design is the best, and after seeing John draw her, I wanted in on the action as well, haha.

I need to paint more, right now I do it every two-three months. Oh woe is meee!

Hey guys- sorry I can't post al the doodles I have- anything to do with work I really can't post! And I've been doing a lot of commissions which I can't show either- and I'm doing a secret drawing for Nico which I don't think I can show either!!! Sorry! I'll post my obession with Joanna Newsom drawings soon though! Loooooooove her.

Dumb Is Coming To Get You

I made a new banner- please tell me what you think! I kept changing it like 5,000 times before this one, probably so fast no one saw! :p

Here's some the stars of it, my only characters really, Maude Macher and Dumb Dumb Duck.

I really need to bring them to life, I think they hate my neglectful ways.

Update! I figured out the mystery of the missing banner- I saved it with CYMK settings instead of RGB. So no wonder some of us could see it, Safari is a smart browser and still could read it, but Camino and others looked at the code and said, no way!

I feel so much better now.
