New Year Resolutions that beg to be broken!

For New Year's Eve me and the hubby will attend the "New Years Eve at CoSM Party".

I will be posting pictures from the party and of my new easel that I received as a Christmas gift from the in-laws. I will also post new resolutions that will be hard to break after publicly announcing them.

Happy Holidays! and Where did Mani go?

Thanksgiving has come and gone ... now Christmas is just a few days away. Things have been really crazy for me...

Like for example:

My scanner and computer died after the Brooklyn tornado. Apple replaced the 3-4x until giving me a brand new one entirely. Scanner has yet to be replaced. I'm poor. There I said it. I'M POOR. ::Cartman's taunts to Kenny come to mind:: Hence, no pretty TaW's.

I announced to friends and family on facebook and twitter (around August-September I believe) that I was pregnant. I was very happy with the surprise. Fast forward to late October and I found out I had a mis-miscarriage (no fetal heart beat). I was at first shocked then angry at the doctor and tech thinking they were playing a joke on me. Don't ask me why I thought that but I seriously didn't believe them since there was no loss of symptoms like good old morning sickness and I waited for years (since no one can afford fertility care). I was extremely depressed when I knew it was true. 

Sister and I @ Ren Faire'10 
She's in Australia right now until the economy gets better in the USA.
Send her love (and heads ups)!

I was told I had to be operated (remove fetus) since apparently even my body can't do that naturally. I felt worthless, unfeminine, depressed and a whole range of emotions I didn't know existed like, "This dinner tastes very purple." BTW FYI the "abortion" was fucking painful. But after 3 days in bed you're like, "OK! Goodbye room! I have things to do. I'll call you." I really (for I don't know how long) became isolated and just dropped out of everything including freelancing. My heart wasn't in anything. Seriously, how can I do an awesome job and be an epic genius when my heart was put in a blender and served to me Titus style (for those illiterate your ='s Cartman and Scott Tenorman episode on South Park)?
So, like what's the good news? I get to try again next year! Well as many times as any woman wants to... *wink*hint* say no more.

On a lighter note:

Me and my husband have found a new home and are in the process of packing everything and throwing things out we don't really need. I really thought it wasn't much stuff but ... wow. Moving has taught me that men really shouldn't complain about women packing for travel. Men almost bring nothing on a trip and have to buy upon arrival, whereas women bring the house. Yet somehow men have more stuff in the home then women do. WTF? I think I'm almost done with my stuff (not counting furniture) and honestly it's like I'm leaving for a vacation. My husband's stuff is filling a room. So when your guy jokes how you bring the kitchen sink in your purse, remind him how they will need the U.S. Army to remove all his crap from your house.

"The Rape of Orpheus" oil painting

Not finished (obviously), I am still drawing in the details. There will be more nymphs dancing, eating, drinking, and kissing the severed head of Orpheus.

The main nymph has wrapped herself in his intestines while ecstatically raping him. 

I will have Orpheus's head looking back at the portal of hell where Eurydice stands waiting and watching. This will be part of the mythos series that I've created with "Know Thy Self" as painting #1. This will be #2. This one is pretty large compared to the first one. I'll post the dimensions when I get a chance.

Other paintings in queue...

Not Sure how I feel about this painting of Jason. Should I gesso over it? Or does anyone want it before I do?

What I'm working on now...

This is my next painting in queue. I am getting ready for a few more shows coming up in the fall. I'm wondering if I have time for everything. No complaints. Must be flexible and adaptable in the face of Chaos.


Presently working on concept art and character designs for the horror movie Watch Island for prop designers and presentations.

The people that made this event possible...

Yay! Links actually work now on blogger. No more copy and paste. Woot. Videos are still difficult to manage. Anyway... enjoy the clips!

YouTube - Greyegg McKenna setting up Convergence @ the Armory

Saturday afternoon @ the Armory

Looks like blogger updated their features / UI just to mess with everyone :P So maybe the links and videos will actually work this time around? More pics from the show. Sunday is the last day so come on out and meet with me and all the awesome artists there.

Me on the balcony.

Me posing on the balcony. I so don't like being photographed >.<

Janis Joplin Funks God - New Painting 8/23/10

Just felt like calling it this randomly "Janis Joplin Funks God". It's refers to a inside joke between me and Jason. Honestly, not based on any photos or references on the legend (most of them have her face covered with big sun glasses anyway).
