a mother, artist, teacher, and writer. now i just need to be more successful at these things!
carlos' 90th birthday. <3
i have a burn scar on my thigh. when i was 4 years old, my grandma served me top ramen. me being a clumsy toddler, spilled it all over my leg. if you look closely you can still see the resemblance of the noodles. it's gotten smaller as i've gotten older.
when i went to Japan @ 14 years old. i was tired and hungry from the long plane ride and the long train and drive to our friends' house. she made like 3 huge platters of the best sushi i ever had. i ate so much i got a stomachache. it was worth it!
a better version of myself.
As we were packing for our move about 2 months ago now, I noticed that I had a lot of drawings and artwork of Alyssa when she was about CJ's age. I only had a couple of drawings of him. He asked me why I was always drawing her and not him. I had no good answer for him. So this is the start to even the score. :) Much more to come.
well the actual techniques come pretty quickly as soon as learning and practicing are done. if i could master the skill of the true fine artist-as in the gift of artistic gab, that would be it.
omg who is this? hahaha yes i AM mean to Carlos, but he's a big weenie who deserves everything he gets.
i need to think outside of my track jackets, jeans, hoop earrings, sneakers steez. what do you suggest i should start trying to add in my wardrobe?
hmmm...boots are a good thing to add. they're so versatile, comfortable, and practical. other than that...maybe some bengal bracelets.
i'm a pretty quiet person. i paint to express myself in ways i wouldn't otherwise. it's also a part of who i am. i am an artist, as cheesy and cliche as that statement may be, i have to create, otherwise i get really depressed.
well...i don't really know which came first, but they both taste damn good cooked...maybe some chicken mole or adobe and my favorite meal is eggs benedict...so to answer ur second question (which is cheating btw it's supposed to be one at a time ahem)...it was running away from me, i was chasing it with a fork and knife
Easy. Three's Company. Oh wait, or The Wonder Years. Those were GREAT shows.
which one of us Naomi or Carlos? if this isn't Hugh Jackman then probably not. :)
here's a convo between carlos and i on the subject:
Naomi: see i'd rather be a vampire cuz at least you don't really lose control and you remember what happened.
Carlos: Werewolves are some of the most well adjusted people on earth
when you flip you get to go ballzs out and release the beast
when you come back you are right as rain
Naomi: so I guess we're like 50/50? or undecided!
She pretty much looks how I feel today. bleh
I created this doll for Mezco's Living Dead Doll Show in New York a few years back. It was a lot of fun. It sold, too! Maybe I should make more dolls. What do you think of her?
For now, here's a pic of the day. I'm just going to post something each day, like I was doing, but it could be old, it could be new, it could be progress, or it could be something totally random. So enjoy...
An oldie but a goodie:
