GOODBYE 2 year Hiatus!!! I am back!!! Miss Me???

Hey viewers! I have seen a tremendous amount of views but am saddened that I have neglected this blog for years!!!! Life has been quite a ride, moving back home to Upstate, NY then struggling to find a job and then finding the job and working constantly.  Between work and a social life my art got the backseat.   Well guys I am back!!! New name (Michelle instead of Shelly) and a new tweak on my style. Oh! and get this one I started a new book!!!!!

About three months ago I read an article about people dressing and acting like a mermaid, swimming in the water and wearing tails!   Since I am a huge "Little Mermaid" fan I decided to put pen to paper on some kind of "mermaid" book.  Well no luck on a story but then BAM! A co-worker sends me this video of a cat swimming! All of a sudden the world made sense and an hour later a story was in production!  I will save the details of the story but will say this....a Mermaid girl wants a pet, turns a kitty into a mer-kitty!!!

So as of now I am going to attempt self publishing E-Books.  I love the idea of holding a hard copy of a book but have to keep with the times and keep with the market.  So long story short, here are a few finished colored pages in somewhat of a sequential order.  Sorry about the watermarks but it's for my own protection. ENJOY!

Did I forget to mention I Graduated???

In the crazy post graduation mess of moving to BedStuy, sorting through massive amounts of artwork, and job hunting I may have forgotten to elaborate on how AMAZING it is that I finally after 4 LONG and brutal (but amazing) years have graduated with my BFA from Pratt!!!  I can't believe how much I've learned from that place.  But now it is over and the job search continues.  But here is a picture of my diploma, my most prized possession other than a 22 year old baby bear.  This diploma signifies 4 years of hard work, dedication, blood(lot's of pain), sweat and tears.

I got into the Pratt Show! Such an honor and such a great opportunity for me!  I've worked so hard for this and it is Finally paying off.  Today was the Opening to the show and well it went great!  I got to meet some  cool people that really gave me nothing but amazing feedback.  I loved that the MOST USED word from people was "CUTE!"  That really made me happy because my work is ridiculously cute.

and thanks also for coming back to look at my blog because of the show.  My flashy business cards DID work :D

I will post photos tomorrow night after the Family and Friends Reception.

Bleed for your Art!

So about a week ago I finished putting together the final draft of my book.  TOTALLY OPEN TO CHANGE BY THE WAY! haha had to add that. JUST because I fully color and print a really nice looking book does NOT mean I am not open to changing it.  I just want it to look really well presented.

So anyways my last 3 inches of cutting on the bookcover were left finally after hours of cutting.  Of coarse I slice a nice inch long gash down my thumb.  After it FINALLY stopped bleeding I finished the book.

I guess you have to bleed for your art.  I need to buy a thimble.
