Sketchblog Edition 99: Her Hair Just Got Longer

Oh happy day!

I spent most of the day organizing art supplies and miscellaneous junk in my room,
which took me from around 11 to 3:00 in the afternoon.
I ended up eating a late lunch of reheated burrito,
and let me tell you...
that's not a smart thing to do.

I also realized my hair is getting to be at that rebellious stage,
between short and medium length,
where no matter what you try to do with it,
it lashes out at you, runs up to its room, and slams the door, blaring its loud hippie rock music all afternoon.
I have this coupon so I think I'm going to take advantage of it and get it chopped.
I don't want to cut it too short,
because I want to grow it out eventually,
but right now, it's simply driving me crazy.
Here are some possible styles I've been toying with.

While researching hair designs,
I came to the realization that dinnertime was approaching,
and the only halfway decent foodstuffs I have in my house are chicken nuggets and ramen,
which is sad.

Fortunately for me,
Lilly was making delicious brown sugar burgers at her place for dinner,
which flushed the sadness of Empty Fridge Syndrome (EFS) from me.
Heidi and I picked up some chips and burger makings and met Vanessa and Lilly at Lilly's apartment,
and commenced with the merriment
(which included watching Nausicaa).

I snuck a peek at Lilly's copy of Koko Be Good by Jen Wang,
and got inspired by her awesome line motion and character liveliness,
so I smooshed some things I liked about her style into my own as a fun little exercise.

Heidi, meanwhile, began wrapping herself in her scarf.
We speculate that, even bundled in a pile of blankets,
her internal thermostat may still not work right.

After eating Lilly's delicious burgers,
we engaged in dessert.
Colorful ones.
I claimed the pink one for myself.
The following sketch really happened.

And, what I'm sure you've come to expect by now,
more Lepulines.
Here, we see one revving its engine.
And below it,
a startled Lepuline using its teleporting abilities to escape a predator.

Today's free sketch is for Inuryan,
who has a very fun face to draw. :D
I messed up his arms though. :(
Hope you like it anyway!

That's it for today!

Hope you're all having a great December so far!

Love you all,
and goodnight!

p.s. Don't forget about the Name The Lepuline Contest! ;)


  1. Hmm...I thought I commented on this yesterday. Oh well, I'll do it again! I love looking at your drawings! And as for the hair, I choose A. Or...1. Whatever the top one is. :)
