Feigning Adulthood

i am drawrs

I made these little paintings for solomonfletcher ! And they finally made it in the mail system so I feel okay to post them up. 

A pink hedgehog and Big Lettuce Leaf from Solomon’s excellent (NSFW) comic The Forest.

Sketched digitally, then printed out and made with watercolours, gouache and ink. 


So, long story short, I got stuck paying a $200 bill when I really didn’t have the money to do so and now I can’t pay my rent/student loan payment this month! yay! I’m applying for repayment assistance, so hopefully it’ll defer my payment this month, but even if that goes through I’m still short on rent, so I’m opening up some cheap sketch commissions to do on my evenings after work to help things along.

It’s $15 for rough lines and some flats, tack on an extra $5 per extra character

Payments made though Paypal only

Will draw pretty much anything (reference is appreciated), would prefer not to draw pornographic stuff only because it’ll end up looking absolutely ridiculous and probably not what you intended.

If interested, email me at bjbwhittington@gmail.com

My fine pal Britt could use a bit of cash, and she would love to trade you some excellent drawings for it!

6: How old were you when you first learned how to ride a bike? Who taught you?
I think I was about 8 or so when I learned to ride a 2-wheel bike with training wheels. I remember my younger brother being old enough to try and follow me around on tricycle. He would’ve been about 4-5. 

My parents were pretty even split on teaching me how to ride. My dad is better at instruction but my mother had more patience. 

12: What’s your favorite scent?
Answered in the first ask!

13: What’s your favorite urban legend?
I answered this one already too, but I’ll add a story here. 

I don’t know a lot of urban legends, but it was common knowledge among the kids in my elementary school that there was a demon that lived on Devil’s Island (why would you name an island that you are awful whoever you are.) The demon rowed around the island in a dingy and if you made eye contact with it, it would row to shore and chase you down. Then it would drag you back to the island through the ocean. 
It was total BS obviously, but I was scared to death of this demon. Once I learned it wasn’t real, I started telling the story to younger children as had been done to me. Because children are mean. 

The Wikipedia article for that island (formally called Deville’s Island so there ya go)
The only recorded ‘ghost story’ associated with Devil’s Island.

15: What’s a strange habit that you have?
I have a decent amount of bad habits, but none are particularly weird I don’t think. (Anyone who knows me, feel free to correct me)

12: What’s your favorite scent?
I answered that one here!

27: Would you like to live in another country?
Maybe! A lot of the more northern European countries seem appealing. Or New Zealand! Mostly other countries appeal to me because they’re gorgeous (obviously Canada is beautiful too) and because I feel like smaller countries have more cohesive politics and are better at making decisions that can benefit the majority of the population.

39: Have you ever won a contest?The one time I went to Dr. Sketchy’s here I won a prize. They let the models decide and she picked mine! It was pretty cool.

50: State five facts about your personality 
- people pleaser
- quick to irritation/frustration but slow to actual legitimate anger
- passionate
- I cry very easily (is that a personality trait? It’s linked to how I get overwhelmed and embarrassed simultaneously for sure)
- hopeful

prettyfrocks asked: 11, 12, and 13!

11: What’s the last song you sang?
I sing in the car a lot. A lot. Um, probably Chandelier by Sia. 

12: What’s your favorite scent?
Near my Nanny’s place there’s a point out over the ocean, and it grows wild purple irises. So the wind coming off the sea and through those flowers is probably the best scent ever. 

13: What’s your favorite urban legend?
I don’t know, I don’t know many urban legends! (If you know some good ones, link them to me.)

Good news, I’m ready to continue Thunderpaw!

Check out the update here

After a lot of thinking and really considering the time I have available, I am going to start updating monthly with three pages. It’s not a lot, and less than what I wanted to start out with but this will ensure the monthly updates.

However! I’d love to bump the amount of pages up but I need help.  Please consider checking out my Patreon

Do this. Do it for love.

Felt Spoops

(such a rookie felter am I)

I’m teaching myself needle felting! 

It’s basically witchcraft.
Obviously I’m into that.

jessiesketches asked: Hey cool lady, it's time for the NICE THOUGHTS CHALLENGE. Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to 10 of your followers. YEAH BABY YOU ROCK.

Argggghhhh what is thissssssss

1. I am a fairly driven person. 
2. I draw well and work hard to get better. 
3. I have nice legs. 
4. I have a cute face, my facial expressions can be very ridiculous.
5. I’ve successfully maintained a loving relationship with the same person for 9.5 years.

Fun story, I wrote these all out and put question marks after half of them and then went “no, I’m supposed to mean these things! Don’t question them! I’m pretty cool ok!” 

being a cat would be way easier
