Casino Girl

This young lady is an employee of the local Indian casino. I was attempting to sketch her from memory but failed.  I didn't quite capture her likeness nor did I get her nonchalant, relaxed expression quite right. Whenever I'm at the casino I see her strolling along and find her to be rather interesting.  She is rather attractive and appears to take a lot of care in maintaing that attractiveness. Her hair and make up is always done to the extreme. She looks more like somebody on a TV show rather than a change person at the casino.

Some other things I failed to remember were the bagginess of her work shirt and the change pouch that she wears like a fanny pack. Perhaps I will try again later. Or maybe I'll just go into the casino and ask her to stand still while I sketch her. That doesn't seem too weird or anything.

Solo: Shipping and Transport

I designed this Star Wars themed T-shirt months ago.  There was once plans for selling this design but those plans have since fallen through. And, unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to sell it in my Zazzle shop or anything like that.  It sort of walks a very thin line between parody and copyright infringement; a line I'm not too comfortable walking. But at least it makes a good portfolio piece and there's nothing stopping me from having it printed for my self if I want. Sucks for you guys!
