a blog of my illustrations, collaborative projects, and artwork.

This is how I pay people who petsit for me.
Commission from April 2014.  I still have a lot of others, just haven’t edited them yet. 

This will be my first project as an MFA candidate of PSU.  
I’m really sorry about how awful that last one is.  I did a quick sketch with my tablet to figure out placement and a color scheme for my upcoming installation. 

I got a bamboo tablet!  and I drew this girl on it to prove that I bought one!  I also decided to use the tablet to sketch out my next project…so I’m really sorry you’ll have to see that later.  It isn’t pretty.

Hello Again

Hey everyone, 

I am very sorry for my absence on tumblr this past month.  I just moved to Portland, Oregon for Portland State University’s MFA program, so I’ve been focused on packing/unpacking and settling in.  I just wanted to update you all that this blog will also be used for my student artwork, inspiration, and any writings I might have for class.  I also wanted to let you know that I’ve already started another installation and will be posting photos of my progress soon!

Grind it till you find it Emily Lewis The last gift card I made for my job. If you are ever in San Marcos, TX, come check out Jo’s Cafe on 310 Mary Street.
Gift card #2 Emily Lewis

Why is there a pop culture seesaw of glorifying and disrespecting curvy and thin women? We can’t help our body types and we certainly don’t need other people we don’t know singing songs, making movies, and writing articles about what they think we should look like.

Stop the scrutiny, and if you want to make songs praising your own body type, please do it without insulting the other. All you are doing is making a mockery of your own sex and gender.

I met Lili Taylor today at the coffee shop I work at.  I was so nervous and confused about her being in a tiny city and a tiny shop that I started to shake a little and forgot to put ice in her iced espresso.  
She still tipped me and she winked at me on her way out. 

My sly way of making sure she was Lili Taylor was solely in the statement posed as a question towards her which was, “You were in High Fidelity, right?” 

I ruined any of the small amount of “cool” credit I earned for myself almost immediately after because I geeked out about this two minute encounter for the rest of the day.  

That was my first celebrity experience, hopefully I’ll be better at pretending to be a normal person next time.
