Chevalier- Thank you. How cool that the thousand-eyed girl showed up. No one's ever told me about anything like that happening before.

Kazu- Thank you! Actually, Mal did the colors. They're all soft and tasty like an ice cream cone. :)

My drawing, Mal's (http://www.radiomaru.com) beautiful coloring. It's a cover illustration for a selection of my pieces going into a webmagazine (http://www.nomagazine.com) next month.

I agree with you, Sweet_Baboo. I usually try to keep my food philosophies hidden, because a lot of people get needlessly defensive and hostile at the very mention of "I am vegetarian" or "I am vegan." I have no problems with people who eat meat or who eat it around me. Food is such a personal thing....

It's not the soy, it's me. You gotta trust me on this. ;) I'll admit soy meat and milk are an aquired taste, but they grow on you pretty fast... That, and you learn which brands are good and which aren't; there are huge flavor variations. My experiences with Jewish food extend mostly to potato latke...

I'm a pretty awful cook, which is sad considering I cook 95% of my own food (I'm vegan). My problem is usually with seasoning...it baffles me. I don't have a touch for it, and unless I'm following a recipe or making a real effort I make everything garlic-flavored. Luckily I'm a passable baker. My ma...

I've heard of Marmite (http://www.gty.org/~phil/marmite.htm), which appears to be the same thing. My boyfriend was/is weirdly obsessed with it, and had a jar of it hidden in his room because his horrified roommates threatened to throw it away. I haven't tried it, but I took a whiff, and that was all...

Thanks, Matthew. I'll try again soon, and then pester you mercilessly for help... My dream is to someday be totally free of the computer. I swear it'll happen someday.

You'll always be my inking idol. <3

No way am I better than you. You have lively, healthy, confident lines; I have dead lines. ^_^;; As for too many lines, yeah... I can never tell when to stop. It feels weird to be using lines in all the places where, in a painting, I'd use a color shift. Black and white is my arch-nemesis, but I'm d...

I'm just learning to ink with a brush, and ink period, which is frustrating but also...relaxing. I think this is a fairly honest self-portrait.

Beautiful. The thing that strikes me as a candidate for being "off" is your jawline. I must have done ten self portraits last year, and none of them looked like me. The last one I did was a big charcoal for a class, and the comment I remember was, "being hard on yourself, huh?" I guess that's better...
