Halloween Pumpkins

I never just sit and fool around with paper and ink.  Notchordamnachoz (take THAT spell check!) inspired me to try it out.  I found some big bristol paper and loosely sketched out some big head poses that turned into pumpkin dudes since, you know, it's Halloween month.  It took about a week of inking to finish it.  And by a week, I mean sitting down for 5 or 10 minutes at a time and flushing out one of the colours.

This one is my favourite.

"Whatcha thinkin' 'bout?"


And this is me playing with my new tablet, trying to figure out my new hot keys.

Pretty Serious-ly Awesome!

I got a little surprise package in the mail a few days ago.

Samples from the Pretty Serious line!  Whoo!

Thank goodness she sent 5 colour of polish (and one very tasty smelling tube or lip gloss!) so I could try out a colour on each nail.  From thumb to pinky the colours are Gargoyle Ganache, Mummy Mush, Into Dreams, Morning Java and Tux.

Since I was going to a Halloween party a 2 days later I thought the black Tux colour would look pretty awesome.  It's black with a shimmer of blue in it.  Classy!

Thanks to Karen at Pretty Serious for the treats!

Pretty Serious

For almost a year now I've been working with this fantastic entrepreneur who started her own cosmetic company called Pretty Serious, in Australia.  It all began by doing a header for her B movie review blog, B Movie Chicks, which then lead to me doing pinups for her different lines of products.

Creating her logo design is what lead to the girl painting her nails that I've been using on my blog and website.  I also helped design the packaging for the products.

Hello World!

This one is based on computer lingo.  I've always been an Apple girl, so I've never witnessed a Blue Screen of Death but I'm sure the colour is nicer than the situation.  See the colours HERE.

In The Night
This on is based on an old SNES game, which I never played, but I recognized the character design.  See the line HERE.

Monster Mash
Ok, this one I really enjoyed doing.  Anything kind of monster related and my eyes and ears perk up.  You can probably guess who each of the little, soon to be blended, monsters are based on.  See the colours HERE.

Emma Louise
Last and more definitely not least is the charity driven colour.  To celebrate a friend's birthday, she got to design her own colour with the profits of the sale of this colour going to her favourite charity.  It's a limited edition too!  Read more about it HERE.

It's been a pleasure working with Pretty Serious these past few months.  Me being in Canada and her being in Australia hasn't hampered our work.  It just bends my mind a bit thinking she's replying to my emails from the future because of the time difference.
