Here’s a sketch of something I’m working on right now. I need to tattoo myself, so I’m working up some designs and such. I’ve always been a huge fan of underdog animals… Pigeons, cicadas, etc. Pigeons specifically just seem like such resilient creatures, despite being martyred all the time. Anyway, themes of life and death and reincarnation and finding gold in the least expected places are my favorite. 
I’m told I’m way mean to all of the people and critters I draw, though. And I can’t really deny it.
Anyway this was supposed to be a simple drawing but it’s quickly becoming possibly too involved for its own worth.

Sooo some good news! I have a little comic backlog forming, and finally getting back on board with illustration, as well.
I also got accepted to become a tattoo apprentice, which I have just started today!! This is great! The only problem is, it means it’s real effin hard to have a second job on top of what is essentially full-time work (but also learning) without pay for about a year. I’ll be making a commissions post soon, to help out with food while I look for some silly part time gig as, I don’t know, a grocery bagger or something. I’ll also finally, FINALLY put that etsy shop together, which I’ve been threatening to do for some time now.Anyway, here is a WIP of that sketch of Benito I posted a few days ago. Gosh, it’s been so long since I’ve painted a scene! It’s both super fun and challenging at once.
His story is really starting to become concrete in my head, though. I wonder if it’s possible to make two comics at once. I suppose I’ll hash out the details of that later. I don’t see this story coming into the light until 2014.

The warmup for tonight… It’s been entirely too long since I’ve done any computer painting. Pretty fun. Don’t know if I’ll finish this, but I’m ready to go draw, which is great for a warmup! maybe I will finish it one day, though?
It seems I have thousands of works in progress but haven’t done anything with any of them! Hi, I’m Hillary, and I’m cool & an adult
