Blush by Jo Wilson May 27th in Jo History


So, this is my first piece of vanity art for the year, and the first to depict my new hair color.  (The painting doesn’t show you my ridiculously long roots, of course.)  It kind of sums up my current mood these last few months.  (You can Check it out on deviantART, if you like.)

Doodles with Sosi!

So, last night, my soul sister, Nikki (a.k.a. Sosi), and I stayed up till the crack of dawn doodling together via screen sharing.  In the process, we had some discussions about the future of artwork for The Pillow Game, and by the end of it, I am left feeling as utterly enamored with her art as I always have been.

The only thing I have to show for our doodle-fest on her part is the following portrait of me that she has begun:

And as for what I worked on… well, I played around with coloring an older sketch of mine, previously posted to deviantART:

This painting was previously used as the featured graphic in the header banner for Auridesion.com, but I’ve since changed it to something else in my recent updates.  It currently still plays a role on the site information page, but I plan on changing that soon, so I decided to post the painting before I remove it from the last place you can still find it.

I didn’t realize until just now that I hadn’t previously submitted it to deviantART, which was a really big shock to me.  I’ve corrected that now, of course.  So, if you would like to see a bigger version of the painting, check it out here.

Happy Bring Home a Puppy Day!

So, I don’t know if you know this — even though I totally mentioned it in my homage to Xander Wilson back in August — today marks the fifteenth anniversary of my favorite holiday, which I have decided should be called The Day My Parents Brought Home a Little Brother for Dusty Day.

Xander, 2009

Definitely the best investment my family ever made.  (May Dusty and Xander both rest in peace.)

In other, completely-unrelated-to-April-Fool’s-Day news, deviantART (where I post most of my artwork) has this crazy awesome new feature called thoughtART.  You can MAKE ART WITH YOUR MIND!  I totally used it and thought a painting into existence.  My subconscious mind named it Squeals of Kittens, and it’s definitely the best painting I’ve ever painted with my brain.

Then, I decided to check in at DramaFever (where I watch all of my K-Dramas) and would you believe they’ve got a new feature too?  They are replacing all subtitles with emoji — you know, smilies and emotive icons and what not.

Well, I couldn’t understand all of that gibberish emoji stuff (it’s not really my thing), so I went to ThinkGeek to shop for some fangirl paraphernalia.  I they now have Rosetta Stone: Learn to Speak Klingon — which is GREAT news because now when I watch episodes of Star Trek and TNG, I won’t have to read the subtitles when they’re speaking in Klingon!  Isn’t that awesome?!

I thought so.  xD
