No Room For Doubt

Not gonna lie I have listened to this song, by Lianne La Havas, almost EVERY day for about two weeks. It is sublime. It puts me in such an amazing mood! I first heard about the band from their cover of Everything Everything's "Final Form". Her voice is so clear and lovely. Her clothes are ADORABLE. Her hair is ADORABLE. She is ADORABLE The tune is so sweet, but not in a sickening trying too hard way. Paris streets in the background. The voices of the passerbys. The guy on the castanuelas in the end who joins in. It's too perfect. Watch now.

So in addition to creeping on beautiful men and downloading copious amounts of music (illegally cause I'm a B.A.) I also doodle. It started as a distraction from the slow burning death that is school. I think I'm okay I'm no Rembrandt or child prodigy who will unite the world through art...I haven't been doodling/ sketching for a while because I was more concerned about my life falling to shambles, but enough of that. This is a happy place so here are a couple of my current favorites... I'm sure I'll look back on these and hate them like I normally do with everything I've drawn at some point, but for now they're okay.

Note: I am AWARE these pictures aren't the best. I am technology illiterate. Like Fah-real. Using a scanner was DEFINITELY NOT an option I tried to get fancy with camera tricks, but really all these pictures look like it took them whilst having an epileptic bout. Silly Nia.

I'm trying to start a comic with a quirky/spunky/nihilist female lead. It'll be somewhat autobiographical ( cause I'm not creative enough to just make up a cool story...) Along the lines of American Splendor style wise (I hope). The girl's name I can't decide on. I'm thinking "Neil" short for Cornelia or "Jello" a pet name for Angelica. I don't know I'll probably abandon it. It could be something cool though. I like her look. She looks like a 12 year old boy with eyelashes. that? The hair is based on my brothers'. It's the result of an unfortunate scalping at the hands of an overzealous stylist. This never happened to me, but it did to my brother. I thought it was funny so I put it in... Nosferatu shirt just cause its the greatest vampire movie EVER. The boom box is kinda stupid I just needed to put SOMETHING in her hand... We'll see where it goes. More then likely up on my shelf for the next three months.

This is a sketch based on a photo I took. My hair looked really cool, or so I thought, so I took a picture of it and drew it just 'cause.

Little girl drawings.

I really like lips and eyes. I'm always drawing full lips on stuff. like everywhere.

Sketches of me with a coal pencil.

Things I draw when I get Hungry.

That's it for now. I'll get a new sketchbook soon. Maybe keep the comic going. Who knows?

I bought this CD on Halloween Day in the seventh grade. This track was one of my favorites because ironically enough the next day was November 1st and the quirky rapping courtesy of a man who I now know is MF DOOM and the bluesy/funky rythmn. It just gives me a good feeling and perfectly explains the sensation of fall coming and leaves changing and everything slowly dying and breaking away from routines. I'm talking too much. I like listening to it every year around this time sooo I figured I'd share. 11111
