Hey Gang!

  I had so much fun painting the first time, I thought I would record myself drawing a bunch more pokemon. I think there's 8 or 9, and they're all blue or blue adjacent. Don't pigeonhole them though, just because they're blue doesn't mean they're all water pokemon. It took so long to draw them, that I thought I would separate the videos. I drew all the pokemon in this one and in the next one I'll paint them.

Film Adventures #3: Prints #3

Hey Gang!

  I've gotten three different runs of my film prints back! I've been shooting film consistently since the beginning of the year. If you look at photos when I started to now, you can defintely see some improvement. I just love photography and experimenting so film photography is the perfect in between. My mom asked me why I gave up on digital. I promise I haven't! It's a lot easier to carry my film camera around because it's so much smaller than my Canon 70D. 

   One of my favorite things about photography, is getting me out of the house and makes me go exploring. I don't like to take pictures of the same thing, and since all of my friends and family are busy with their own lives, I don't get to practice a lot of portraiture so most of my portfolio and my day to day is buildings. So I'm always excited when I get some semblance of street photography by catching some innocent bystander being particularly photogenic. I'm going to show you a few of my favorites.

On Youtube #16: Art W/ Spokhette 1

Hey Gang!

 I've been trying to do different things with my youtube, because I like making videos but most of the time, I don't know what I want to make a video about! I was watching Furry Little Peach, and they were talking about living life by 5 seconds. When you think of an idea you should start on it right away because it only takes your brain five seconds to think of reasons why you shouldn't do it. 


 I have been saying that I want 2018 to be a more creative year for me and that I want to experiment more, which is why I decided to film myself painting. When I was done, it was 23 minutes long, so I sped it up, since I'm not talking and it's not a tutorial. So now I think its 4 minutes, which is a perfect time for a video with no communication.

  I drew three yellow pokemon, Zapdos, Joltik and Abra, and then I painted them with Acryllics. I had so much fun, that I did an even bigger piece a couple of days later, you'll see that video soon!


As Always, I hope you like it and Don't forget to subscribe!

Series #49: How To Get Away With Murder Season One

 Hey Gang!

  I just happened to glance up at the television in the coffee shop the other day, and low and behold I saw a commercial about a crossover. Olivia Pope going up against Annalise Keating. Now if you don’t watch Scandal or How to get away with Murder, and honestly I didn’t watch it either. I stopped Scandal in season 3 and I tried Season one episode one of HTGAWA, but it didn’t really jive with me.


I wasn’t really into television shows that do flashbacks and future forwards, but since I’ve discovered a serious love of mysteries, I’ve been more and more into things that take a lot more deciphering. I saw that commercial for a crossover and that was all I needed to know. I wanted to catch up with HTGAWA before the crossover episode so I wasn’t missing out on anything.  Second times the charm I guess. 

  This season definitely threw me for a loop. I also didn’t expect the season to be so long, 14 episodes were pretty steep. My favorite thing about this season was how expansive the mystery turned out to be. When the show started I thought it was pretty open and shut. I also was a huge fan of the fact that the cases that weren’t attached were still helpful in some way. Either they detailed a legal strategy that they were going to use or they revealed a piece of evidence that was key to discovering who killed Lila. 


 Although the characters definitely grew on me throughout the season I do have to say that I’m not a huge fan of Annalise. The issues she has with her husband, and that fact that time and time again he destroys any capability of faith you could possibly have for him. She put on a strong face for her students and literally everyone but herself. She would have saved herself so much trouble and them, if she had just been honest about her suspicions. Although, I was a little confused about Nate's motives, why would he lie about what he found? 

 One unique thing that I realized about this series is that it wouldn't get anywhere without the characters constantly distrusting each other. If they were more open with each other, instead of making everything a competition I don't think the mystery of Lila would have been dragged out as much, but then I can see that it probably wouldn't have been nearly as fun. 


 I was so excited to start season two, but this season left me with so many questions. Why did Frank owe Sam? What kind of a background does Bonnie come from? Why Did Nate wait so long to disclose what he knew about Sam? If Sam cheated on her twice, why did she try to protect him? What's really going on with Laurel, holding onto the wedding ring was a dick move?

Monthly Favorites: Feb '18

Hey Gang!

  Yet another month has bit the dust! 2018, was speeding by, but I feel like February definitely slowed down a bit for me. I got a quite a few things done this month, and I can't wait to tell you about it. 

 The biggest thing for this month would have to be getting to See Black Panther on Thursday Night! I absolutely loved the film, and I'm still gathering my thoughts to write about it because I honestly just don't want to break the magic spell. 


 I got two different colors in my hair this month. Light Periwinkle blue for most of the month, and then silver towards the end. I just feel so good, when my hair is colored, I can't really explain why, but it definitely does something for me. 


I shot so much film this month! I got two different sets of film prints back! If you count the two rolls that crapped out on me, I shot 8 rolls of film this month. I just really love going out and exploring my city and capturing it through film. The anticipation of waiting for my prints to come back is definitely one of my favorite parts. 


I upgraded my iPad mini to a 9.7 Ipad Pro. I AM SO IN LOVE! I got a serious case with a keyboard and a stylus so I can do more art on the go. I've been churning out some pretty neat t-shirt designs lately, and I want to start doing more painting lately. 


I streamed for the first time in a while this month. I finished an entire mystery on my twitch stream a couple of days ago. It took me practically 3 hours. I was getting frustrated but glad that I stuck with it because it was a pretty neat experience. I can't wait to stream the next mystery. Make sure you follow me so you don't miss out when I go live! *shameless plug*


I visited a cemetery for the first time in a while with My friend Sheneal so she and I could both practice portraiture. I enjoy photography, but I don't get a lot of practice on actual people, so I'm always overjoyed when people want me to photograph them. 


 I got my Pokemon pins from Ieafy. They're shipping from Australia, so it takes quite a bit of time to actually get to me. I bought three: Ferret, Minun and Plusle, and Alolan Raichu because of DUH. They are so adorable and I absolutely love them. 


 Boy Wonder finally got around to building the shelving units I bought from Ikea. We didn't think they would be wide enough to hold the tv, so I bought two, but they totally were, so they took up practically the entire wall, and we still need to buy more because there isn't enough room for all of our DVDs. *sigh*


 For Valentines Day, Boy Wonder got me a body sized frog. It is as tall as I am, and I drag it around the house. If I'm gaming on the couch, I'm laying on it. If I'm lounging in my chair and watching a stream, it's there, and if I'm going to bed, I lay it over the two pillows on my side of the bed and I sleep on him. He doesn't have a name yet, but he's so soft!

Novels #24: Book Haul #4

 Hey Gang!

  With Teen Wolf taking up a decent amount of my time, I didn’t want you to think that I wasn’t keeping up with my goal of reading at least a book a week! I went to the library the other day and picked up three novels, but I’m not really feeling them. I picked up The Diviners by Libba Bray, Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, and Scintillate by Tracy Clark. I may just return them. I was really excited about the Diviners by Libba Bray because literally, every book blogger has been talking about it, and the rest of the series, but it really hasn’t captured me yet. I’m going to give it a few more chapters before I chuck it back to the return bin. 


 I’ve been reading digitally a lot more than a physical copy which kind of surprises me because I’m pretty stubborn. There is no denying how easy and convenient ebooks are, you can download multiple ones at a time from your local library and it’s with you everywhere. With me being able to complete novels in a work shift, It is really nice to not have to carry more than one book with me at a time. 

  In my digital copies, I’m reading Killer Pizza by Greg Taylor, If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio, and Fever by Christine Feehan which was recommended by a college friend who knows I love reading erotica, or as Boy Wonder calls it *Lady Porn*. Fever definitely doesn’t disappoint. It’s the first in a series about leopard shapeshifters, and she definitely doesn’t leave any of the erotic to the imagination. Which I love! 


 I found a more recent series for Nancy Drew.  The All New Girl Detective, which came out in 2004, it took a little getting used to but I was so excited about having an updated Nancy and the gang, that it didn’t take me long to shake the very recent slang used. I wound up running out of time to read it so I have to re-borrow it from the Library. It’s Number Four in the series: High Risk and Nancy follows Ned on some private flying lessons from his father's friend and tries to help a librarian from losing her ancestor’s land.
