Ugly Ariel

I'm a quitter.
for the past 2 weeks I have quit everything.
I quit doing my job, quit cleaning my house, quit being an awesome wife, and I quit being the best mom ever.

All my time, love and energy have been devoted to my new love interest: My Microsoft Surface.

I have always wanted to be able to do art things on the computer. Even if your are a good artist, drawing with a mouse is incredibly hard. Every time I've attempted to draw on my PC it comes out looking like a 4 year old with a dirty mind scribbled it.

Now that my Surface and I have grown closer, we have been replenishing and multiplying my art portfolio.

I was nervous at first, naturally. The Surface and I had just met. I normally don't spend that much one-on-one time at the beginning of  relationship, but with the Surface it's different. When we first met and looked deeply into eachothers eyes/screen, I knew we were destined to be together for all time and eternity. 

For our first dates we attempted to draw The Little Mermaid with my special Emily-esque style.

This one was drawn using sketchbook express. This was the most difficult (we were still getting to know eachother). There is a huge learning curve.

For this beauty, I used one of the coolest apps I have ever used: Fresh Paint.

I am still the most comfortable with pen and paper.
I feel like Prismacolor colored pencils just....well....they just understand me.
The Surface and I are headed in that direction though.

Between you and me, things are getting pretty serious around here.
I think the Surface and I will live happily ever after.


Speak with your heart or your private parts, either one is fine with me.
