Are you ready for the bestest, most baseballiest, most art filled post yet!  Get out your scorecards and start yelling for a hot dog at the college kid trying to pay his way through college with this second job cuz he blew most of his scholarship on booze and beer pong posters for his late night parties hoping to make the frat guys jealous who wouldn’t let him in after they caught him playing with Magic cards the first day of orientation with his now roommate/best friend Barry.

Enjoy these amazing baseball caricatures of the senior boys of the Messiah Baseball team.  You’re Welcome

P.S. Jordan’s Kickstarter is going really well, however he is having trouble with the printer we chose to go through.  Even though he formatted the book himself so that it works the way its supposed to, the printer is still going to add 2 extra pages on the end which really messes with his design. We are still going to look for an answer, because right now this printer is what we can afford, especially since its the only print on demand service we found.  Fingers crossed it won’t be as bad as we think right now

Jordan and i are busy getting our minds blown today by the amount of people who have already backed his book on Kickstarter!  We noticed that one of the backers came from someone who visited my blog, and to that person, i thank you.  It’s only been two days and we are already out of his hand bound books, with the exception of the ones saved for the highest backers.  Needless to say, our faith in humanity has been restored.  Plus, he is amazing and completely deserves this moment in the spotlight. I will continue to give you all updates as the project continues and I hope that if you haven’t at least visited his Kickstarter page, go there and enjoy looking at the pictures and please like and share if you feel so inclined (or maybe even back the project if you feel like it)!

Alright, alright, i’ll shush about the project for now.  I just know you’ll be sick of hearing me talk about it, but its just so exciting! Please stick with me for the long haul.

As promised, here is a Celebrity Caricature of the cast of How I Met Your Mother.  I watched all 6 seasons on Netflix in the period of three weeks.  I have no shame.  You’re Welcome

First of all, apologies to all for my being absent from the blog scene for a few days.  I’ve been working on the nine commissions you got a preview of in my last post.  I am happy to report that they are all completed and i will share them all next week with you after the recipients have seen them.  I know the odds are slim that the ballplayers would actually visit my blog and spoil it for themselves, but i’m not willing to take that chance.  Leave a little mystery.

I know i’ve mentioned this before, but my husband, Jordan W. Martin,  has been working on a book for the past few years and has finally put everything together in the past month.  Its called “Yesterday Brings Today” and it is ready to go, we are just looking for some help to get his book published.  We are so excited for this because it is, hopefully, the first of many books to be published through his company Right After Then.  Its a beautiful book that i can’t wait to see in print.

Please visit, share, donate (if you wanna), like his Kickstarter page.  As you all know, a little exposure goes a long way.

Away from Here, and Far from There

And, because i love to show you my work too, here’s something from 3 years ago that i pulled from the archives.  You’re Welcome

I’ve been working all day on inking some commission pieces for a baseball team and I’m glad to say that this stage is almost complete. I’ve been getting in a lot of Star Trek while doing this, working hard to fully become the nerd I always felt I was on the inside. Tomorrow, I color and watch Capt. Kirk lead on another young yeoman. You’re Welcome

My brain is pretty fried thanks to Netflix and the original Star Trek, which is amazing BTDubs. AND, i’m pretty distracted by the fact that my husband updated our Minecraft server and it glitched out all of my animals that i worked so hard to find, tame, and corral.  AND i had to bury an adorable baby bunny yesterday because my parents’ dog thought it was a tasty snack.  AND i have 9 commissions due by Monday.  AND i have no ambition to work. *sigh*

Today i thought would be a good day to show you my sketch process and general work station.  I wouldn’t bother copying it though because i lose and misplace just about everything in my workspace. i’ll be using a pencil one minute, and the next i’m all like “Jordan, where’s my pencil?” and he’s all “I don’t know, weren’t you just usin’ it?” and i’m all “Yeah.”  And that’s how that goes. You’re Welcome

This is where the magic happens

some face studies
