Fefe Dobson: The major celebrity inspiration behind the Alimah character. This is an incredibly talented and brave Canadian rock alternative and experimental pop artist. She didn't want to sellout to the masses and be another R&B/pop princess or a glorified stripper singing karaoke. She demanded to be labeled as a rock artist in the 2000s, despite her race or gender. And she broke a barrier for women of color in rock alternative after her appearances on MTV and in mainstream media. She is a real rock musician, who never used the rocker chic as a gimmick. She is the one of the only black female artists, next to Santigold, to have have success in the mainstream in the rock alternative category without having to hide behind an R&B or Pop label in order to seem "marketable". #writersofinstagram #womenwriters #fiction #fefedobson #fefe #santigold #musicindustry #wocwriters #writers #singersongwriter #rockalternative #rocker #rockstar #blackgirlsrock #allgirlsrock #nanowrimo #workinprogress #rihanna

I am going to have a VERY limited number of longhorns available for Christmas shipping, so stay tuned for details!
Finishing up this little 8x10” portrait for this weekends East Studio Tour. I started these portraits a few years back. A way to take a break from my other work, to loosen up and experiment and to explore a few ideas from a new perspective. Feeling like I need to explore of at a larger scale and see where it goes. For me these aren’t portraits of anyone in particular, but instead of everyone. We all have these layers, emotional and physical scars, ever changing textures of life. We evolve and change and grow in many directions at once. Thanks for indulging my explorations along the way! .

#transformationtuesday - taking a look at where the last 6 months have gone. I feel the scale hasn’t changed much but my body is getting leaner and I’m noticing all my non scale victories. The biggest has been that I am now fully into size mediums for most stores. Say what That still seems surreal to me, as before there were so many stores I wouldn’t even step foot into for fear of not being able to try anything on.
I still feel like I have a long way to go, but as I said yesterday, I’m regrouping and focusing on getting back to tracking and exercise; focusing on my mindset and not letting myself get into those negative thought cycles (they’ve been getting the best of me lately). What are some things you are focusing on for this last month and a half of 2018 .....

The first step in what will be our most complex animatronic to date! We'll be keeping you posted as we build 😁
The eyes are the window to the soul... they're also what we build the head around so we generally start there 🤣
ONTO THE NEXT ONE…
Working on a painting that will become my Christmas card image this year.
I began today with shooting reference material for the central image, which I then sketched onto canvas. Then I begin to draw in the details surrounding the central image, then I lay down the underpainting and begin colour-blocking.
A one-of-a-kind image to say ‘thank you’ to my collectors.

Weekly Recap from bodybuilding.com for last week!
After totaling two exercises and 10 sets, you more than doubled your average number of shoulder exercises and sets. Your shoulder lift of choice was standing military press at an average of 63 lbs. per set.
It was a business-as-usual middle back week with you pumping out a total of five sets. All five of your middle back sets came from bent over barbell row exercise. It was a good lift with an average of 85 lbs. per set.
With a total of five sets, you should be amped about your chest workout. Barbell bench press - medium grip was your lone chest lift, but you did crush the exercise, lifting an average of 65 lbs. per set
• You've officially put your hamstrings on the fast track to serious strength gains. Over just the last month your barbell deadlift went from 95 lbs. to 130 lbs. • You did 15 quad sets this week. Compared to your three-month average, you crushed it. • The last few weeks of quad work have clearly been paying off with your strength increasing quickly. Cool! • Good job upping your game. Your performance this week was greater than your three month weekly average with two shoulder exercises

Pintar siempre fue una pasión,
pero jamás pensaba que fuera posible vivir de ello.
