Take another little peach of my heart now, baby

Hullo, blog. Haven't seen you in a while. In the time that I've been gone, I went and sat for my 6th tattoo! I'd been mulling over getting a peach for a variety of reasons, (favourite children's book growing up, favourite fruit, favourite movie, I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier) but … Continue reading Take another little peach of my heart now, baby

My year with the Angry Ice Game

When Leng suggested we try watching hockey last year, I did not expect to suddenly adopt 20+ giants in knife shoes as my sons. Leng and I caught the tail end of the Stanley Cup finals series and I got really into it. Surprising, considering I usually find spectator sports a step below watching paint … Continue reading My year with the Angry Ice Game

Hausbands: Y'all sick of me drawing hockey boys in love yet? Well, too bad because the Check, Please! Year 3 finale was a doozy and it will take me months to get over it. Co-captains. Hausbands. Because it was bugging me every time I scrolled past it, I also re-painted the Nursey and Dex piece … Continue reading Gab, Currently XIV

Gab (vs digital art), Currently XIII

I don't think I've ever been this productive. But It's easy to be able to squeeze in practice time when you don't have to set up a bazillion things to be able to paint, in my limited workspace. I've wanted to try this thing where I don't outline. I mean, I like my lines, but … Continue reading Gab (vs digital art), Currently XIII

Gab, Currently XVII

I've been slowly, over the course of this year, getting my feet wet in the ocean that is digital art. https://twitter.com/teluete/status/877665080787083265 The catalyst being some illustrations I had to do for work in June. I had been stubbornly holding on to doing things traditionally, but it really didn't fit the project brief and I had … Continue reading Gab, Currently XVII

Tindera Life: Between the rush for preparations and my anxiety, I totally forgot to post an announcement here but I was at Komiket a few weekends ago! Shared a table with the totally rad ICEBOX, Nagi, and Corn. Komiket was my first time peddling my wares at a con. Super tiring, but a lot of fun. Shoutout … Continue reading Gab, Currently XVI

Moonlight hides your fears

Sailor Moon got me into art school. This show was such a huge part of my childhood. Girls with super powers kicking ass? It had 10-year-old me LIVING. I don't think I would have started thinking of a career in visual arts had I not started drawing Sailor Moon fanart as a kid. It's what … Continue reading Moonlight hides your fears

whathaveidone: In a moment of insanity, I accepted a friend's invitation to share a table at October Komiket. I also spent the next few days curbing a full-blown anxiety attack, because I've never been great at getting my work out there. I've been reintroducing myself to making fanart, something I haven't done since college, since my … Continue reading Gab, Currently XV

Gab, Currently: XIV

  Well, this started out as a new year's post, but I've once again left it in my drafts for too long and it's pointless now. Suffice it to say, 2016 was a good year for me personally, but shit universally and 2017 doesn't look like it's going to be any better. I've mostly been … Continue reading Gab, Currently: XIV

GABCANFLY.COM – Year-end, New Domain

I originally wanted to do this for the New Year, but gimme a break, it's December and I have been over my domain since January. The plethora of other issues I have with it aside, it's just such a mouthful. Really should have taken into consideration how long gabriellelopezart.com is when I decided on it. Since I had … Continue reading GABCANFLY.COM – Year-end, New Domain
