New Website!

Hi!
I am very happy to announce that I have finally redone my website! It's been a long time comin', but I struggled with playing in too many different styles for a while and I have finally settled into something cohesive. There is a hidden sister website for playful vector art...but it's a secret.



So go on and check out sarahseesart.com!

Metamorphosis



One of my favorite stories by Franz Kafka. If you haven't read it, one day a boring businessman leading a boring life wakes up and realizes he turned into a bug. His family shuns him except for his sister who grows into womanhood, and when Gregor (bug/man) finally dies she runs off to live her life and make babies. A metamorphosis of her own, if you will. I guess the moral of the story is not to live life only to work, because you might as well be a cockroach stuck in someone's house.
In a nutshell.

It's drawn on watercolor paper, worked up with watercolor/gouache, and finished in Photoshop. Let me know what y'all think. Thanks :)

Cake Balls!


This is such an easy recipe, and it's fun because you can mix and match whatever flavors you want! I made them for Watts's birthday. I used devil's food cake mix w/ chocolate frosting. And blueberry sprinkles. Delicious.

Here's the recipe, I encourage all of you try it. :)

DIRECTIONS

1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl, and stir in the frosting until well blended.
2. Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.
3. Use a melon baller or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set.
