Now that I am in the knowledge that I can post properly...

I've been obsessing over childrens books for a long time; I don't know whether it's my general lack of attention span or 8-year-old demeanor or whether the delicate whimsical stylings of childrens book illustration serves as an opiate to my chaotic little mind...
today I was supposed to go job hunting, as that time has fell upon me, but, daunted by the real world, I decided to paint Little Red Riding Hood, and her friend and mine, the moderately sized morally eschewed one of two carnivorous mammals that typically live and hunt in hierarchical packs and prey on livestock and game animals and little girls and their grandmothers. This is what I managed to make;
wolf 004 little rougie 001

I wanted to make the wolf seem almost endearing as I think that as a predatory animal it was not out of malice that he played such fatal tricks on little red, but something he couldn't help. I think that there's a little bit of the 'big bad wolf' in us all. except me, of course.

for some reason I can't post html hoojimiflips

here is the html code for a picture of some meat that i painted a while ago

Edit: I was wrong. I can post all of the hoojimiphlips that I please.

Victory story if ever I vic'd

When my brother and I were knee high to grasshoppers, our nana knitted him a jumper with Sonic the hedgehog on it, and since then I have envied him dramatically. I'm kinda sickeningly obsessed with novelty items of clothing at the moment, I like to have at least one item of apparel on at a time which says 'I'm a fun person who likes to party'. So when I finally plucked up the courage to ask him about whether or not I, myself could become owner/guardian of the sonic jumper, I was surprised by an un-hesitant yes. There are perks to finally becoming a real adult/human being(hoominbeeng)... I was channeling my 1990s childhood self upon dressing in this photo. And I was happpyyy.

(Excuse the messy room, it's just the way I ammz)
