Lolita Valentine Drawing

I sat down today and broke out my Conte pencils and drew an entry for the February EGL banner contest. Traditional media is my forte so with that in mind I decide to stick with a realistic style. People have been complaining about the overabundance in anime entries so hopefully my entry will bring something new to the table.  

Medium: Red, black and white Conte pencils
Approximately 3 hours work time

I'll upload this to Deviantart when the contest draws nearer.

Merry Christmas

I hope that everyone had a good Christmas yesterday! I had to visit family and run around with the kids so I decided against wearing lolita but I do have an outfit from today. I used my Christmas gift cards to go shopping today and here's what I wore:
Outfit Rundown:
Cardigan and socks from Bodyline
Skirt from Fan+friend
everything else offbrand

Lolita Christmas Card Exchange

So this year I decided to join the Christmas card exchange on EGL again. I got my card in the mail today and it's very cute! It features pink with white dots and has a scalloped edge. And the glitter, I love glitter. <3

The front of the card

Inside of the card 
(such nice handwriting!)

It's hard to see on the second photo but there's a snowman next to the handwritten message and a few snow flakes at the top. 

I sent out the card for my partner today which is a couple days late ;__; but I think it should still arrive before Christmas. I hope she likes it! Since I can't wait to show it I'll share a scan I did before I sent it out.

Front of my card

I did a quick illustration with fine felt tip pen and then I punched two holes at the top of both the picture and some purple card stock. I attached the two with sheer purple ribbon tied into a bow. And on the inside I glued another piece of paper with a handwritten message. I was trying for an old fashion Christmas time cartoon but I'm not sure I achieved that. What you do guys think? I'm so excited I can't wait for her to get it!

Welcome little one!

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, there have been a lot of changes in my life since last post. And one big change is that we have a new addition to our family! I had my second son on the 7th of November and boy is he a cutie. Here's big brother helping his baby bro with his sock.

We're just now settling into a new routine and now that the semester finals are over we'll have the whole winter break to take it easy. I can't wait to share Christmas with my family and welcome him into our traditions. I'll also have some time to upload the pictures from Lolita day so expect a new post soon!
