Jubilee Lee and Her Gang

Perky Nerd is having an art show based on the 1992 X-Men Comics/TV Show. Since I absolutely LOVED the X-men, I thought to do something purely nostalgic of my childhood while I would fantasize being an X-Man
... Bazooka Joe Gum, Comics, and Rap Music.

25 Years of Artwork!

Cartoon Network is celebrating its 25th birthday!
So here's my piece for the tribute show!

Hi, I'm Grup!

Here's a piece I did last year for the Season Premiere of Mighty Magiswords! I've been working on this show since it started in the digital flash department back in 2014!

Happy Valentine's Day!


This is going to be a very cheesy Valentine's Day, celebrating the love that Patrick and I have... that's why I love this holiday - because it's okay to be cheesy, romantic, head over heels in love with the one you're with!

Day 1 - Yourself


This is me... writing every day, or so I try.

30 Day Drawing Challenge


I don't know if I'll draw these in order, but this is at least a good starting point to get me inspired to draw again. It's been a while, that's for sure!

The DREAM Art Explosion! is a chance to create. It gives those who need it, and those who don't, a reason to make art. And as Bagavagabonds, we take the creations of those who have become inspired by our concept or our theme and put them on display. On Saturday, this Saturday - August 21st, tons of donated art will be hung for your bidding pleasure in a silent auction style gallery. All pieces will go for $50 or less!!! And all the generated $$$ from the art sales will go to the charity Make Something!!

Looking forward to it!

Halloween 2011 - Steampunk Witch

This year I was a steampunk witch, carrying potions for both good and evil. Patrick was a steampunk gentleman, carrying guns on him. To make things simple in our explanation, we called him the killer and I the healer, and told people who didn't understand what steampunk was that we were an "Industrial-Victorian lady and gentleman." I surprisingly won the costume contest for Sexiest Costume! Wow! Never would have thought that. I really liked my makeup and how it turned out. Very dark, almost zombie-like. Made me look more like a witch.
Here is the costume I pieced together/made.





ROCHELLE:



I got the corset on eBay several years back. The black shirt I got from a boutique back in college.

For the bottom half of me, I made a black tutu to give a bustier look (cuz I still wanted to be able to sit down.) This I learned how to do for my costume last year. I got all my fabric at Joann's, using coupons or deals they had. I found out how to bustle a skirt on youtube and Patrick and my mom both helped me.


I made all the jewelry...

(necklace)


(bracelet - which I also made black lace cuffs)


... and added a necklace to the $2 hat I got.



My makeup was inspired by how to videos on youtube:

Since I considered myself to be a witch, I consider myself a master of potions, using both healing elixirs and toxic poisons.




PATRICK:



For Patrick's steampunk costume, I found the vest, slacks, and jacket at a thrift store - my favorite on in Burbank, American Way. All for under $20.

He modded his $5 hat...



... made the goggles...




... and fixed up the long gun.


Even found a timepiece for him to use:
