ART_Dreamcatcher Canvas

IMG_0069 Today I wanted to share a canvas piece I did for a friend a while back, but finally got the chance to photograph this morning. I finally took the plunge and bought a new camera yesterday, so I was able to get some good shots of the painting.

My friend asked for large wall art for his room. We decided on a dream catcher, but he gave me the freedom from there. I wanted warm toned colors that were natural and desert-like. I also ended up including some blue for contrast. He now has it hanging in his room, and it gives it a lot of color and character!

ART_"My Morning Jacket" Skate Deck

My Morning Jacket I am back with another skateboard deck! Suprisingly, this is the first band tribute deck I have ever done. Gladly though, it won't be the last. I am looking forward to working with this customer again for a board of another of her favorite artists. I hadn't heard of My Morning Jacket and their logos before, but as I worked on this a lot of my friends told me that they liked the music--so that was cool!

I incorporated some of the band's art, the owl and bear, to create this vertically oriented board. The leaves were part of the bear art, but I decided to tie them in with the owl to give it a nice flow. The banner and freehand lettering was my favorite part to do, and has got me inspired to get better at lettering from memory. I think I'll work on that over spring break. By the way, I was working with this and this as reference images.

OOTD 73_"The Future Freaks Me Out"

DSC_0409 I picked up these red (pink?) shoes at Target yesterday for only 10 bucks! I knew I had a blazer in my closet that matched perfectly, but honestly didn't plan on wearing them together. However, when I came home and tried them on, I decided they would look great together for a graphic look. Adding this printed blouse was the perfect way to make this outfit bold. I finished with clear jewelry that wouldn't compete with the loud colors and prints.

The track for today's outfit is "The Future Freaks Me Out" by Motion City Soundtrack in honor of the announcement that they'll be on Warped Tour this summer. So. Excited. Listen along below while you view!

This outfit would look great with a plain white blouse as well, and would be a good way to pair all of your basics together for one great outfit!

Let's be honest, as much as I wanted to wear a dressy outfit, and as many times as I tried on my leather skater skirt, I realized that for Thanksgiving, it's best to just go casual. After eating a big plate of food (and seconds!) I wanted to just lounge around, be cozy, and hang out with my cousins. Therefore, I chose a casual yet festive outfit that was forgiving at the end of the day.
