Ask me things! Whoo!   I'm Jessie. I design and draw things. I design logos, editorial layouts and occasionally packaging. I also like to paint portraits, design characters and create new worlds. Sometimes I makes clothes, accessories and felt plush.

This blog is occasionally NSFW and will be tagged as such.

I’m just going to toss this up here again because I got knocked back down to 2 shifts a week at work and I’m slowly building my emergency savings buffer back up (which I previously kept for a year until I paid a massive bill for the house, now the buffer is gone and it leaves me really unsettled knowing that it’s gone). I figured it wouldn’t hurt to let people know I’m available for some art things.
Signal boosts appreciated. <3

Sailor Moon Cosmic Heart brooch/compact design inspired by old school tattoos, mostly because I saw a lot of really neat SM chest pieces and I want to get one but I wanted it to be a little different. Anyhow, for the time being though I&#8217;m probably just going to make some stickers until I save up enough to get the actual tattoo.
Made in illustator for the linework, shading and colour in photoshop.

Tawni, the younger sister of the last girl I posted, a really rough doodle of her heavily sailor scout inspired get-up.

I ended up totally losing steam on drawing this and decided to call it a day, was pretty darn fun though. Here&#8217;s the original thread where it was found: http://www.reddit.com/r/redditgetsdrawn/comments/261wmm/i_was_told_by_a_mod_to_post_this_here_hope_you/

So last week my Graphire 4 that I bought in 2007 finally decided it didn&#8217;t want to co-operate fully anymore, I ended up replacing it with a small Intuos (basically the cheapest one you can get). This is the start of my first test drive with it (reference photo yanked from a dude on redditgetsdrawn), I&#8217;ll have to finish later though because I work tonight. I think I&#8217;m gonna be okay with this new tablet though, feels a lot like the old one so there really isn&#8217;t much new to get used to.

Doodled while watching &#8220;Flight of the Navigator&#8221; last night, initial ref from here: http://reine-haru.deviantart.com/art/Angel-Stock-211059155
Though the end result looks nothing like it.

Here, have some of my various photographic junk from the last week or so. Hmm, perhaps I should set up another blog for this stuff…

I made myself a Hello Kitty illustrator template last year and whipped it out again the other night for shits and giggles. Endless fun, I tell ya.
