brush pen part 2

Hey! I've been sick aaaaalll week! It sucks. I really thought I was better last night but after being in denial most of the day I finally took a Sudafed and passed out. At least I woke up breathing through my nose, which was a major improvement! I've been sucking down tea and hanging around my apartment for daaaaays and started reminiscing about last weekend when I thought I had beat my sore throat and went to brunch at Alcove, the favorite breakfast-at-noon spot in my neighborhood. It is full of characters, myself included. Here's a few that I encountered:

The lady on the right had a whole lot of look happening: a big woolly oversize sweater, a ripply tunic or dress (it's hard to tell which sometimes but this was supposed to be a dress since she wasn't wearing anything under it), giant chunky rock necklace, crazy gladiator sandals, and the ultimate accessory: a small dog. The dog was cute but ultra tiny! It looked fragile and fluffy. Her friend was tiny and had worlds largest handbag.



This girl is a cupcake. She was really working that romper. Except for the back, where the edge of her butt cheek kept peaking out...but I did you the courtesy of only drawing her from the front.



This was a tall, skinny, lanky couple. They looked like they just rolled out of bed to have a tall, skinny, lanky brunch together.




Also, I added a whoooooollle bunch of new prints to the shop this week. All stuff from my show last month. Lots of the originals are still available too, but I'm still considering whether to put them up in the store or not. I haven't had much luck selling OG's on etsy.

This will probably be my only post this week, since I've spent most of it laying around watching Grey Gardens and eating cough drops like candy.

These are cool & CUTE!
I like the lanky couple it reminds me of Vancouver couples (Mt Pleasant area).

Congrats on being a part of the Tokyo Rose book!

Awesome! You capture style really well, Brigette. I usually just scribble the clothes in.

These are nice drawings of some pretty nice looking people. I wish more people were cool and nice that around these ways. Not as much fun drawing old ladies and forestry workers.

All characters are kind of fashionable self-taught people!
Funny dog. You must not only be aware not to step on its shit but in itself altogether.

"No animals were harmed in the making of this movie." Sorry--that's what I thought of when you said you were lying around watching Grey Gardens. Love the drawings. I found you through Etsy after typing "sideshow" in the search box. The bearded lady was awesome.
