Hope Solo Paper Dolls

So… this happened again. As some of you may remember I did a version of this sometime back in April I’d like to say. Well with the new kit out and me hating DWTS with the fire of many suns now I decided to do an upgrade. I had fun drawing another miniature: Hope’s book cover. It turned out to be as much fun as the ESPN magazine was. Considerable fun. The HyperIce shoulder thing was also fun to draw. I f’d it up in one spot (shhh) but now can’t be bothered to fix it. My desire to draw comes and goes and when it’s gone, well… too bad.

Camouflage Kit, goodluck Gatorade paper cup, Solo memoir, jar of haters tears, Sounders Women Great White Shark kit, Hyperice recovery equipment, altered Purple Kit, alternate faces, BlackBerry, ESPN Body Issue, Starbucks cup, Sounders scarf.

You can download a printable copy off at my Deviant Art page. Here is the old version if you are curious.

Why not, I thought. So I did. The end.


Draw Something

I was stupid and downloaded Draw Something for my iPhone. Stupid because a) I quit playing games because I become too competitive. I start obsessing. b) most of my opponents really suck. c) drawing on an iPhone. Enuff said.

If you want to play me in this my user name there is the same as my twitter handle. And if you don’t know my twitter handle then you aren’t invited anyway. #sticksnoseup

Don’t get me wrong. I do have two fun opponents. There’s just a lot of average people out there. And then this really idiotic one who is either 12 and can’t spell or is ESL.  I treated him to this:

If history serves us well, he will probably bust through all of his helps, try to use the letters RIP even though I never give the word away in the spelling (like he does a lot when he gets frustrated. He makes it a hang man game…um no) and then give up. Like he almost did with “ruler”. I still give my best effort. Even if my opponent seems to lack the knowledge of human society. Maybe I’m playing against an alien.

I’m not morbid. It’s the game. The game is making me do it. And yes, penguins are inherently sad. The ice is melting, yo. You can’t wear formal wear in the heat. Nobody got time for that.

PS: I drew all of that with my thumb. My THUMB. On an iPhone. It was like doing sand bottle art.

Hope Solo Paper Dolls? Yeah, that happened.

It’s finished, baby! Now with even more swagger. You know, the thing about already being a subculture kid is that you can fully flesh it out however you like. No one will judge you more or less than they already do. If you are artistically inclined you can ignore doing traditional landscapes and skip straight to paper dolls of soccer players.

If you aren’t in the fandom-know then you might not get the lolz about the Starbucks and BlackBerry or the Game Face option or Hater’s Tears. Oddly enough, the ESPN Boddy Issue cover was the funnest to draw. I started off just with the impression of an image and it solidified pretty tight I thought. Minimilistic and tiny. My desire to draw miniature things is leaving me but it was fun while it lasted.

Behind the scenes: I was watching Twin Peaks while making this. Just thought you should know. :/
