Omer Deserres

Oi. Oi oi oi

In my first year of high school I started looking for art supply stores.
My friend Jess and I wanted to buy copic markers, so we went to the copic website and found the closest supplier was in Barhaven (it's about 1hr 30m on the busses from our city). The store was called A Fine Mess (scrapbooking, of course). We got horribly lost. Later we realized Wallack's supplied copics in downtown Ottawa (30m). I went there way too often and spent way too much money... I've probably tried every product sold in these places...
It was always a pain in the ass (or a fun outing, really) to go to the art store, so whenever I went to visit my grandparents in Montreal my grandmother would spoil me and bring me to Omer Deserres!
I went there this weekend and I got 2 Fabriano sketchbooks (8x10 + 9x12), a 24 pack of Progresso (Koh-I-Noor) woodless pencil crayons (I bought them because I usually use them for sketching, not colouring- great weighted pencil! They sell woodless graphite pencils too), 2 Micron graphics (1 + 2), a 5-pack of assorted conte (in an awesome tin. Everything had to have brackets)... other stuff, not important!

Was playing Nintendo Land today for the first time after borrowing it from a friend... reminded me of my Miiverse stuff so I thought I'd post it!! (nothing is referenced so sorry for the inaccuracies!)

springtime cutout

The wink is frustratingly slow when I upload it!!
edit: did some research and apparently most browsers can't run the high framerate I used... deleted some frames- hopefully this is better...! :)
(this is what I produce when I don't feel motivated to go upstairs and grab my sketchbook or my tablet)
edit2: that moment when you realize your sketchbook and your pencil case are right beside you

Recycling Day

Some old stuff is back from the dead! [click to enlarge]

Cuban Hibiscus

My mom wanted me to paint this windchime/bell she bought in Cuba. She asked for a hibiscus, so I'm doing three hibiscus (red, orange and pink) and a hummingbird. I don't really like painting so it'll probably take a long time. This is what I've got so far.

And here's a pic of Caspey smelling/eating the flowers on the table cos he's cute:
