Doubles-Plus-1 Fact 12-1-14

12-1-14 She created a slidewalk by putting 2 of my step risers on one side to create a ramp and has been sliding and walking on it with her tights on while talking constantly since 3:30pm. She had to tell me what doubles-plus-1 fact was…I’ve concluded it’s just the wording they use in Common Core that confuses me. Using fact made me want to go do research.
12-3-14 Received a call from her school this morning that another kid ran into her at recess and her glasses were bent and she was inconsolable.

I drew this just yesterday, and this is one of the art pieces I’m actually quite proud of. When I was much, much younger, I loved Disney princesses. OBSESSED, more like. And Snow White was my favorite. For some reason.

Anyways, as an (amateur) writer or fiction, re-writing fairy tales is something I like to do. And as a (wannabe) graphics designer as well, re-DRAWING illustrations from well-known places is something I like to do too. So, here is my version of a very modern Snow White.

Enjoy! (<<why does that make me sound like a chef…?)

Two sketches to begin the blog

Even though twitter does already know these pictures, I’m going to publish a two sketchbook-sketches (actually I do this, because it would be sad to have a completely empty blog). I drew them in the past few weeks and they basicly show some things I found at home.L1210389L1210408

Character Project: Puppy

Originally posted on Orlando Muralles - Art 141:

The completed project. I’m, admittedly, not happy with it and will be revisiting/improving this when time allows. Poor time management on my part (though a poor excuse) kept me from executing this to my liking.

There was also an issue when this was printed, the top of the image was cut off just a little, creating an odd space between the angle of the couch on the top-left and the the top edge. An oversight on my part.
