I don't pretend to know why Tina does the things that she does. I'm just here to document it.

A few months back my good friend, Truly, wrote on her blog that she was having visions of Tina Turner terrorizing vintage illustrated Chinese villagers. I thought that was the funniest thing and laughed out loud. In fact, months later, I'm still laughing out loud whenever I think of it and things have started getting uncomfortable in public places. So this had to be done, cause it's too funny not to be done.

This is amazing, yet again. Question: Did you draw the Chinese people or find the image to build off of?

I did a ton of research! I even found this great book of old Japanese prints that was amazing. Then I just pick and chose my favorite styles and tried to emulate them. It was kind of hard and my version looks considerably sloppier then the real thing. Plus mine are in pencil... I wonder if it would have been better to use ink.

Oh I am fine, not doing o whole lot with my days, still live with my parrents, that is because i am planning to study a course about "adventures and survival in the nature" after summer, so there is no point in trying to move when i am going to live in an indiantent at that school after summer... hopefully... and this summer coming some wild things may happen.. like me going to berlin with a friend just to drift around taking photos... like alot.. perhaps..
I work in a food store piling up money till when i need them trying to get rid of stuff that i own, or rather stuff that owns me... antimaterialsm...

drawing a selfportrait everyday for a year (in 8 days 365 days will have passed since i started... i will go on till i die.)

how about you Ally how are you doing? I sure have been missing you around, you have allways been a great person in my mind and i still have your things you sent me years ago hanging over my bed.

Sound like you will be going on a wonderful adventure! I hope you will have the best experience and stay safe and warm most the time. : ) Will you have access to a computer to post your photos?

One self portrait a day is sure to hone our skills. Are you a master self portrait...tureist? Did I just make up a new word?

I am doing good. Still in CA but I'm wanting to move cause I'm bored of this location. Anything will do! It's just money that's the problem. hate it but need it. Maybe I should sell everything too.

I haven't been keeping up on DA much, but I have a few new things and will try to come back more often to check out your foot drawing progress.

:D

This is great though! Funny too, really odd, but you've captured it well :D
