Tan that Tush!

If you have seen my Photography I assume you have noticed I am quite fond of the outdoors. However, despite the time i spend outside, I am naturally very fair skinned, being the Victorian Girl that I am šŸ˜‰ (I should start carrying a parasol around with me). Usually upon doing any activity that requires extensive time outside I will wear sunscreen, however I cannot stand the smell of sunscreen, nor do I like the feel of it on my body. So yesterday I went out for a bit to relax before studying for my finals, and in the midst of enjoying the sunshine, I somehow fell asleep in the grass, on my tummy. The following day upon walking past my mirror in my birthday suit, I noticed that somehow I was wearing burlesque stockings that I did not put on. After taking a double take and touching the tights, IĀ in factĀ realized that the burlesque tights were my tanned, andĀ sun burnt skin. Of all my unusual sunburns IĀ believeĀ this was the most creative. (btw, I was wearing shorts when I got the tan). Now for my next artistic venture I will cut out little bows on adhesive paper, place them right along my tan line, and lay out in the sun once again. If anyone asks, they will be told that the entire endeavor was planned…Ā  Ā 

“Within Each Other we Made a Home” (beginning stage)


Some art in progress, I still have a lot to do on it, but I’m really excited about it. Obviously this piece isn’t going to be realism or stylized realism, its going to be more of a stylized animation. These two characters have quite a story to tell, but I’ll wait to share that until it is complete šŸ™‚ this piece is called “Within Each Other, We made a Home.” — ThissideoftheSea
