I ended up changing my previous picture a bit.

I like the colored lines more. I think it needs more finish still but I need a nice break from it.

I'm hoping to play with a more children's illustrative style with thick lines just to give it a try, and because I like thick lines. I'll post when I have something I don't hate.

But this ingenious thing I just had to post. Inking in Flash. GENIUS. And yet, so obvious. Why didn't I think of it considering I work in fucking Flash all the time?? So with that, hopefully I'll bang out some cartoons almost like how I bang your mom- slow and steady.

Much love and skeletons,

01.09.09 Quick Update

I finished the self portrait, though it needs some fine tuning and text.

Just a quick little update.

Other than that, I may do a little post on comic covers. There are just some that are so good that were published in double oh eight that it has to be shared.

Also, I'm a little bit in love with the Scott Pilgrim series. Go read it. It shall fill your heart with glee. And make you want to make comics... or maybe that's just me!

Much love and skeletons,

12.20.08 Works In Progess (WIP)

Usually, I can't release most of my work online due to contractual agreements, or because I hate it. Yay temperamental artists! So here's a couple personal things that I haven't yet worked on so much that I can't stand the site of it. Yes, today, I share my eye sores with you!

The best way to work is, naturally, staring at yourself for hours on end.
I'm actually halfway into coloring this (progress here), but I'm not too keen on vector yet. But I love playing with patterns on there. We'll see what happens. Scaled up, I like the line work. I like the basic colors laid down so far. But I hate vector. I hate it. I also hate hair. I have an unnaturally huge disdain for drawing and coloring it. Hopefully by the end of this, I'll have some sort of grasp on vector color.

I am actually back tracking a bit and working on a pirate pin up that I forgot to finish out.

Still in extra rough stages. Basing it on an Elvgren I always loved. I'm not sure how I'm going to color this one yet. I'd like to go back into Corel Painter and see what I can do with it. But I'd moreso like to actually paint it with acrylics. But oh yeah, I'm poor and can't afford canvas or paint. :(

And this-

I've made absolutely no progress on. Because I kind of hate it. But my boy Kyle really likes it, so I'm going to use it as motivation to finish it. I'm looking forward to adding some tattoos in. They're always fun. And if you're thinking that background is are absolutely correct! That's called,"What the fuck do I do with the background? Uhhhhhh here! *plop* It's almost as good as actually finishing it!"

Other things I'm working on are adding new knits and prints to my Etsy store since a couple people bought my scarves and were interested in prints. Here are some scarves (note my white lips. I was sick. Pictures are a bad idea when you are sick). Yeah, teh boring, hoping to work in some hats, wrist bands, and gloves before getting into Etsy. They sell better. And here's an old print I found that I could easily part with. heh. I really don't know where to get decent prints right now though. :/

Also, wouldn't I look fantastically mermaid-ish with aqua hair?!

This is what I do in my spare time, yes. Bad Photoshop masking though, FOR SHAME.

So, I finally updated the blog with what it was intended for. I'M AWESOME.

Much love and skeletons,

12.19.08 Delerious Wish List

This would be my I AM DELERIOUS wish list of dreams. I had to edit some out because Polyvore only allows 50 items per set. Hopefully after this I'll get to posting some works in progress for

My Delerious Wish List by CisforChesney
Click it bitches.

1.Super Blings And Watch Face Plugs
Because I am fucking gawdy, and because I have a secret love affair with cyber punk. Don't tell anyone.

2. Crystal Head Vodka
SKULLS! VODKA! DAN AKROYD!!! The best things in life combined into ONE.

3. A Princess Unicorn Doll
"My horn can pierce the skyyyyy..."

4. To become a Hologram of Misfit.
Preferably Misfit, they had better songs, but the Holograms had better colors and outfits. And you know, light up hologram earrings.

5. A keytar.
I WILL BE THE KEY MASTER ONE DAY. Besides, that's what I'd play in either the Hologram/Misfit band I'm in.

6. Betsey Johnson
I will kidnap her to my humble abode. She will love me because I am awesome, teach me how to sew, and we will make sweet dressy love together. She will hire me as Princess of Betsey Johnson land, where I will be paid handsomely to collaborate on beautiful things, and to wear her fashions. We will eat spaghettios together in pretty dresses and live happily ever after.

Scared anyone yet? Its all downhill from here.

7. (Not pictured) An Affordable, Beautiful Apartment in the NYC
You know, I'd settle for a barely liveable, decently priced apartment in the NYC. I am ready for new adventures. I think this is where my future lies. I am not certain yet. I'm just ready to venture on.

7. A collection of animal skulls from the Rolnick
See, that Betsey Johnson dream isn't as scary now. I can imagine all the magic I could evoke from animal skulls from GOD.

9. Christian Louboutin Ariella studded boots
I have wanted these bitches for 2 years and I still want them. I LOVE YOU, WHY DON'T YOU LOVE ME?!

10. Linda Farrow for Luella Glasses
These are what started my crazy glasses hunt. Still haven't found anything remotely as wonderful. :(

11. A Flying Unicorn
OH NO, is that like crossing the streams? It can't and shouldn't be done?

12. A Pink Typewriter
I blame this on Gala, and on all the fact that I used to play with the typewriter constantly as a little girl.

13. Tarina Tarantino Jewelry
Sparkles + Skulls + Pink Girly Fluffiness = WIN

14.(Not Pictured) A steady job that I actually have some sort of passion for.
I'm not asking for fireworks, I just would like something that would afford me my own place, and yet not make me want to kill myself and become more cynical than I already am.

15. Postal Service actually making the next album and it is amazing. :p

16. A Record Player with a couple Awesome Records
...preferably pink too. :)
Honestly, I feel if I ever got a record player, it would cause an obcession with collecting records that I can not afford, but it's fantasy, so let's play it up.

17. Roller Skates and Ridiculous Seventies Roller Outfit
Not this outfit, but I want a pink, sparkly, knee socked, pink afro-tastic roller disco outfit. Just because.

18. Damien Hirst Diamond Skull
I hate Damien Hirst. And I hate myself for still loving this skull. But I do. GYARG.

19. OhmiBod
Actually, I will probably get this when I have money to spend. Its a vibrator that you use with your iPod that interprets the music through, well, vibration. Its gotten alot of great reviews, and really fun besides. There's even a community for sharing the best playlists. Oooh.

20. Angry Grrl Music makes a Comeback
Seriously, where have all the angry grrls gone? :(

21. All my CDs I let people borrow that I never got back
I'm looking at you, Diane Morales from 6th grade. I want my Tragic Kingdom back. AND YOU GENEVIEVE who has my autographed Poe Hello CD. Those are my formative years on your hands.

22. A Bra Gun That Shoots Lasers
Don't ask.

23. A couple half colourful half sleeves
I want a Degas, and a Klimt. In a perfect world though, I would get the Holograms and the Misfits if I didn't think I'd hate myself for it 50 years down the line...

24. Ukelele
its only befitting. My grandmother used to play the ukulele, now I want to carry on the tradition.

25. Latex Stockings Collection
Without the side anorexia. I know they'd be uncomfortable, but damn, its awesome. All of it. I lust for this collection. Seriously, click the link and check it out. I love it.

What's your fantasy wish list?

Much love and skeletons,

funny pictures
more animals
Greetings, my undead blog and nonexistent readers! I decided not to waste so much space anymore and give this blog a fo-real chance. My purpose now is to update with dubious doses of my work, as well as what inspires my creations in art, fashion, and design. I am an illustrator and I am hungry for both work and food. So stay tuned. I promise not to bore you too much. And hollah at me for whatever your heart desires. Really, I'm in between jobs. Keep me occupied.

Much love and skeletons,

The Dreaded First Post

Hello, Bloggerverse. My name is Chesney, and I'm an dream-aholic.

I am what is known as the ever feared "entry level" artist.

Hear my stomach roar.

I wonder...will I ever remember to update this damn thing?
