Chirssy: Controversy

for some reason my art pieces are either absolutely loved
or absolutely hated.
Haha this one is another rendition of Alice from Twilight.
Apparently it looks like a gay guy
I snorted when I read that comment.
Most people just don't understand my style of art.
Overall the profile is very James Christensen-ish
and the hair was inspired by Katie Holme's pixie cut.
But mostly I was just practicing skin tone on photoshop.
Because that's allĀ illustratorsĀ use now a days.

Chrissy: i've been inspired

I've beein inspired by friend Jon to put a little of my poetry up :)
Its no where near as good as his
so you should go read his too.
Here it is:
No pit is deeper
Nor blacker or cursed
Than thy great reaper
In which I'm submersed
Release me! Reviled beast
For I have learned well
That when the clouds appear eased
Their anger will swell
Catch me not upon thy claw
Let thy teeth not tear
How much hate would you draw?
How much claim of my fear?
No, leave in my lightless pit
For on my brow, death doth sit.
...
Tell me what you think
its a little darker than i remember it being...
but oh well. I've never really tried to write a happy poem... :P

Chrissy:Childrens' book

So here are some of my favorite pictures from my
first attempt at writing a childrens' book as an assignment for my creative writing class.
Its called The Dream Giver and will never be published
because the story is rather weak, and i'm sure the illustrations
are "politically incorrect".
But i had fun all the same.
