I'm baaaack!

Hey everyone! Sorry I was gone for so freaking long!!! I’ve really missed the bubble. Hope all of you are well :)

Gonna go upload some new work…

New videos!

For those of you who don’t know, I’m in an acoustic duo with my husband, Beau. We’re called OminOtagO (it’s an American Indian name that means “beautiful voice”— in case you’re wondering)! We’ve always had troubles in the past getting good audio/video of our shows, but over the weekend we managed to get some decent recordings of a few of our covers : )

Check ’em out…

Happy International Women’s Day!!!

Oh, the irony!

Because I had so little faith in winning anything in the New Masters Challenge- I begged and begged my parents to get me Corel Painter 11 for Christmas (I already have a tablet, so this seemed like the thing to ask for)… I couldn’t bear the thought of going w/out it once my free trial ended. So they, amazingly, bought it for me…Now that I’ve won a copy (which was unexpected/incredible!!), I wish I had instead asked for money to put toward an Intuos4 medium (I have the Intuos3 large which is awesome- but it’s too big to take anywhere and I HATE that the usb cord cannot be moved/removed at all- it really can get in the way of things! Not to mention there’s twice the pressure sensitivity in the Intuos4)!But anywhos!What I’m getting at is that, now that I have Painter 11, I’d really love to u…

Even MORE shocked!!!

I won 2nd PLACE in the Corel New Masters Challenge!! OMG! How did this happen? I was crossing my fingers intensely for a voucher- then I won Painter freaking 11!!! This is CRAZY!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU RedBubble and Corel!!!!!!!!! And thanks to all who voted for me so I could make the finals and have this amazing opportunity :) Couldn’t have done it without you!…

btw: MAJOR congrats to Helen on her beautiful winning entry! It’s truly perfect!! Go here if you (somehow) haven’t seen it— Winning Entries

One last thing! Only about a week left to enter the Chelsea Kerwath Challenge at the Bubbler Portrait Group!! This has been such an interesting experience- check out the pieces so far…
& check out Drawing Jam #8 (on-going! No time constraints!) at the International Superheroes of Drawing, Illustra

Totally shocked!

I made the TOP 10 in the first stage of the Corel New Masters Portrait Challenge (JUST BARELY)! I can’t believe it!!! THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH to those who voted— I was extremely pessimistic this whole time and almost had a heart attack when I saw my piece up there. This is crazy!!! I hope the final judging doesn’t take too long… I know I most likely won’t make top 5, all the finalists are freaking AMAZING— but seriously, getting this far was probably the highlight of my year. I really needed this.
