Issey Miyake

Holy cow! A fashion post?! When was the last time I did that? LIKE NEVER. LOL.
Ok well, you guessed it, its yet ANOTHER illustration challenge. But this time, its for Jane from Sea of Shoes' Spring Fashion Art Contest.
I'm not really sure why I chose this outfit, but when I seen it, I just loved it. It was so quirky and cool. T-shirt on top, clown pants (harem?!) on bottom with some funky chunky shoes.

Man I miss fashion.
I'd go back to following it if it didn't take so much damn effort. And besides. People are watching me now. Why would I want to do impressive stuff when they're watching me? So awkward.

I was going to say something else but then I forgot.

For the Mr. Spoqui "Skin" challenge.

I kind of thought of Silence of the Lambs meets Hipster when I was drawing this, haha.


for IF, again
I really enjoyed making this one, especially the little people at the bottom, I was thinking of how they could be going to or coming somewhere and at that one moment in their lives where they all crossed each other's paths without even putting much thought into it, as we do. Sometimes when I'm out in public I look at people around me and think if we had met somewhere and were forced into a situation where we would have had to speak to each other, would we develop a friendship? Would we hate each other? Could that person be the most brilliant-minded person ever?
Its late and I'm thinking weird things.

Have you ever seen a stranger who fascinated you enough to go out of your way to talk to them? What was the reaction?

for IF

this took forever, believe it or not

I made it for them

There are so many things I dont update on my blog.
Like how the Sushi job NEVER worked out. I was done by the first shift. And how I got a new job as a waitress somewhere else. And how I quit the movie theater. Which you probably didn't even know I worked there. Or how my hair isn't blonde and short anymore. Its almost shoulder-length and brunette-ish (home dye... yeah)
Or how I am learning Japanese.
Lazy-bum desu.

Remember, I'm learning. I am not fluent, as people who speak Japanese seem to think I should be after studying for like 2 weeks. Surprise! I'm not.
And I bet many people agree with me when I say I can barely speak English, who the hell am I kidding trying to learn Japanese?! Hahaahaha.
my keyboard sucks. The 'H' keeps sticking.

If you're interested in knowing about my life, feel free to ask me things. I don't really know what to tell people because I'm socially retarded. So unless you do, all my posts will be just drawings & stuff.
Heres a really nifty video to fill more space.

I find it really irritating that the way this world is now, if you are feeling something other than happiness, you are expected to keep it to yourself, shut up and pretend like nothing is wrong. Friends are never who they say they are, and nobody is really there for you when you are down or need help. You express feelings of sadness, you are Emo. You express feelings of anger, you're an idiot. And I'm a huge hypocrite for saying these things, because I would think the same when looking at someone expressing themselves. I'm going insane from this vicious circle of suppressed feelings.

I'll probably delete this post later.

What am I dead or something?

I mean really.
I'm just a lazy bum.

here are some pictures I took to keep you entertained while I go off actually working on blog posts ♥

The After Effect: Short film by me.

Too tired to write anymore. All the information is on the youtube page.
Goodnight everybody.

Last minute submission to Illustration Friday.
I was working on it at the beginning of the week and they turned off the power while I was out, and I always save so I thought 'no big deal'. But when I went to look for it I COULDN'T FIND IT ANYWHERE. I was so devastated. I thought I forgot to save and I sulked for a few days. And then I found it yesterday. So its a little rushed :(
I wish I had more time to work on her hair but I have to leave really soon.

I really like this one though because ever since I was a little kid I always had a huge fascination with stars. Whenever we had to do stuff about space in science class when I was in school I'd always get really good grades on it. If I didn't love drawing so much I think I'd go to be an astronaut or something.

Happy to be home

Hello follower and possible readers (if any).
I'm home finally! The place is a mess and they did the worst possible job they could do, leaving even a cigarette as a present (yay -__-).
But who cares about that, I'm home. I can sleep in my own bed and eat my own food. And the best part about being home? I will never have to wash dishes again.
Yes, I did in FACT get a dishwasher! Yaayyyy!
Anyways, short post because I have to get back to cleaning up after the crappy workers. Bye bye!

Here's a picture to keep you amused.
I promise you I will get back to posting illustrations when I'm properly settled in, and actual effort will be put into them! :O
And one last thing: Do you like the new layout? The other one was bothering me because all the images kept spilling over kjhdjkfhsd. Well whatever. I surrendered to blogger's new templates (ewww)

Sorry I'm not posting!
Heres a video.

I'm getting renovations done on my apartment this week, so I will have little to no computer access. Its a very depressing time in my life. (sade lyf)
On the upside, I will have more time to read (probably), draw (a lot), and exercise (maybe)
I will be starting a comic soon, and its still got a lot of work to be done on it, however I will have a lot of time to myself so I will have a lot of time to do it.

Illustration Friday: Artificial

I didn't really know what to do for this one, to be honest. I was trying to be all deep and poetic-y but then I just gave up and drew a picture of neeko--mostly because of her pink pink hair which is obviously fake:|
although it'd be cool if someone was born with pink hair.

For Illustration Friday. The theme was "double".
I thought of Siamese twins, and when I was drawing this I made up a story in my mind.
Carrol (right) was always very much suspicious of her sister Coral (left). She was always smiling no matter what and liked to show off how kind she was by doing "nice things" for other people. Carol was so sure she was just trying to show her up, but she wasn't buying it. She was so certain one day her sister wanted to have her removed so she could be a regular, single-headed person. One day she'll show her, she promised to herself. One day SHE'LL be the one without two heads! She'll remove Coral!

Ok so it isn't a good story. :|
I'm not a good writer, ok? ok.

So guess what? I got a job at a sushi restaurant! It was so weird because I wasn't even interviewed. They hired me as soon as I gave them my resume. I embarrassingly admit though to doing a little happy dance as soon as I left that day. Something along the lines of

So I started my training on Friday. It was a really nice place, and I've eaten there and really liked it. Its my favorite place to go actually-- and I'm not making this up in the event that my boss ends up reading this. I really do mean it.
So I told you it was nice. Big deal. First-day screw ups still apply even when you are confidant of your "super experienced food service skills". Not to mention everyone who worked there was speaking a different language and I was the only white person there...

and I'm pretty sure the translation goes something like this

Mostly because of what I happened to do when confronted with saucy-messy-madness brought on by saucy-messy-cleaning

OH and the fact that there was an all-black dress code and- well you can see what I'm wearing there, so.

I work again on Wednesday. I hope I don't mess this one up.

Sorry for the lack of posts.
Life really hasn't been interesting, except maybe when I went to an anime convention, which was only fun on the last day I was there when I found a Para Para club in my city! I'm so excited to start. I practiced the Chocolate song for hours and hours.
They're doing renovations in my apartment, which is great, because its old and needs it, but unfortunately for me, I'm allergic to EVERYTHING. So my throat is just killing me, and I have to pee every 10 minutes because I'm drinking so many fluids to keep my throat from raging on me like an angry demon. Good lord.
I'd complain, but then again when I have a stable job enough to live on my own my mom is going to move out and I get this apartment with a friend of mine, and... I WANT A NEW KITCHEN.
They're going to put in a dishwasher HECK YESSSSS!!!!

So I'll just suffer with a soar throat for a few months. Yipee.

memes will get old if you overuse them

This is more a note to myself.
I've been addicted to memes lately, and I fear I might become trapped in the interwebs like my imaginary-granny-I-made-up-one-day-who-has-salt-and-pepper-hair-and-sits-in-a-rocker-knitting-all-day-telling-old-wives-tales-to-anyone-who-listens always says, and I will get eaten by a Swirl Crab.

Keep a diary, and someday it'll keep you.
Mae West

So I was browsing Flickr. Browse browse browse. La dee da dee da. And then SUDDENLY (if suddenly means at a snail's pace) I came across this website. And, well, there you go.

my layout is finally complete, thanks to salcha4u and her coding.
There was a lot of stress involved, a lot of editing on my part, and then a name change, and finally, in the end, we have Contemplative Cat, a new named inspired by a picture of a cat I seen who looked like he was figuring out what life was. I wish I could speak cat and ask him.

I hate this name too.

I'm going to change the name as well.
Sorry for the short posts, I am just frustrated.

Tuesday, July 6, 2010


I'm getting to hate this layout.
No more posts until I get a new one that doesn't make me think pepto bismol every time I look at it.

Grad Parties = Awesome

So the last two nights I went partying. The first night was one of my best friends' graduation party, and I wore my dress (seen above, ahem), and it was awesome. I actually danced. I never dance ok. Big deal. It was so much fun I ended up going out with them afterwards and staying out until 3am! We threw timbits at our friends' window. It was hilarious ok. Yesterday I went horseback riding and had a fancy dinner (wearing my dress. ahem.) and then had a campfire thing. We were all so wiped out by it all (and it was only 11:30 at night!) So perfect weekend? I think so. Except now I'm like this:

I can't even draw properly I'm so tired. Thats why this post is so lifeless, despite the fun-filledness of the weekend. And also its boiling hot ew. ok bye now. zzzzzzzzz

Friday, July 2, 2010

Well this is awesome.

So this morning I invited a friend over. We wanted to make breakfast (a REAL breakfast) for ourselves for fun, and so we did. I tried to make poached eggs, but just like in Julie and Julia, it wasn't as easy as 1, 2, 3. I ended up (out of stupidity) pouring out the ruined egg in the sink, which I hadn't realized was clogged AND the pipe was broken (or something, I dont know know the plumber is late. Yes I am very surprised that he is late. Its such an uncommon thing. Is my sarcasm obvious enough? Should I wear my 'sarcasm' shirt?) So we tried to scoop out as much as we could, and then I noticed the floor was wet. Well actually it was SOAKING wet. The HUGEST PUDDLE EVER POURED OUT FROM UNDERNEATH MY SINK.
So long story short we couldn't do the dishes. .__. I should see this as a good thing but the kitchen is at its most disgusting so no I don't.

to be pretty or to not to be pretty.

Dying my hair blonde this week. Everyone has been saying it wont look good on me, I should stay this horrible brown-red that everyone passes as red even though ITS CLEARLY BROWN. Or if they don't say that, they're telling me it costs a lot in maintenance. I'm not that new to the hair scene, darlings. I am a girl you know, believe it or not.

I finally have my grad outfit completed. 20's flapper-style black dress from Frendi, little brown western booties from Spring, sweet little earrings I found at Ardenes that have a little fake pearl and silver bows, and I'll probably wear my watch I got as a grad present from my "adopted" grandparents. :D

The actual party was last Friday, but I don't really like the kids I attended highschool with so why pay $60 to a party I wont enjoy, right? Instead I am going to my friends' grad party, and then the next day I'm having my own celebration Horseback riding, Dinner, and then a "bonfire"--which is actually more of a camp fire but I like saying bonfire better.

This post is incredibly boring so to make up for it heres a picture of a backwards flying cat.

I'm graduating today

Um. Didn't I just go to my first day of Kindergarten yesterday?

Jack the Welcome Frog welcomes you.

Hello and welcome to my little drawing blog!
I am addicted to other drawing blogs such as Susan Draws and Hyperbole and a Half that I wanted to make my own.
Let me tell you a little about myself.
My name is Melissa. I like drawing.
I want to become a Graphic Designer.
My favorite color is white. I'm Seventeen (going on eighteen. SOON. Like in 5 months or something lol)
I'm awkward. And I hate writing about mes because sometimes I put in something sounding really big-headed and self-absorby and I hate that.
I recently went on a bike trip 20km to the beach and only just barely made it there when it started to pour down rain on me and my friend.
I got 34 mosquito bites from it.
