Picture Saturday || January {2}

*Treskie apologetically peeks out from behind laptop*

I am very sorry. 

It has been another freaking AGE since I have blogged, or read blogs, or done ANYTHING BLOGGISH.


And I reckon it will be another age until I do my next post because Valentine's Day is coming up in like... a little over two weeks, and... flowers. 

All. The. Freaking. Flowers.


Anyway! How are you all? Not dead? Cool. 

Want to see some art and stuff? Here you go!

1.) Look at this cute day-dreamy girl. Isn't she cute? I like her scarf. 

2.) And then there's this Irish-type girl. I don't know. I like a lot about this picture, I like the colors and pose a lot. Buuuut there's the problem of her face.

3.) THIS CUTENESS. *Does the Snoopy dance*

4.) Uuugh. The problem with this one... is I had so many brilliant ideas, and the sketch was actually so much better than the finished product. *Irritated Treskie noises*

5.) This poor tired person...

6.) In other news, sometimes, after Kate's interrogation, she has some... issues. And... yeah. Yup. I'm awkward.

7.) And then sometimes Tyler really, really wants to punch Tristan in the face. #bigbrotherproblems

8.) SO I HAD THIS CUTE IDEA FOR A SORT OF COMIC-TYPE-THING, AND I'M WORKING ON IT AND IT'S CUTE. Buuut. I haven't had time to finish it. So here's a couple of sneak peeks. 

9.) And oooh he's gonna pounce on her....

I'm excited to finish that, I think it's going to be super cute. 

Oh you lovely people, I missed you! 
Tell me what you're up to!
And I will see if I can go around and read and comment on a bunch of blogs I follow tomorrow. 

Question Time!
Favorite overall?
Best in black and white?
Favorite colored?

I love you all!

Picture Saturday || January {1}

Sometimes Treskie actually keeps her promises and posts when she says she's going to!

Such commitment and stuff.

I'm getting frustrated with our weather here. It snows, and then the snow turns to slush, and then the slush piles up into great, soggy quantities of nonsense that is not only slippery, but also weighs about ten tons per shovelful, and gives me sore shoulders.


Anyway. Enough about the weather. You guys want to see some art?

I haven't drawn a whole lot lately. I wasn't kidding when I said I was socializing all of December. I mean... all of December I didn't have a single night that didn't have something going on. 

*Introverts collectively scream*

I'm not saying it wasn't fun, because we had a blast. But socializing is exhausting, and nonstop is about enough to make me just...

So whether there's a lot or not, I will show you, cause I'm awesome that way. 

1.) Right, here's the, "Oh it's been a long time you've drawn...."

2.) Almost every year I draw something related to "Baby, It's Cold Outside," because that song is adorable. I'm not wild about her right arm, but whatever.

3.) There's this Taylor Swift song, where she says:

"You took the time to memorize me, my fears, my hopes, my dreams,
I just like hanging out with you... all the time. 
All those times that you didn't leave, it's been occurring to me:
I'd like to hang out with you all my life."

And it's frikken cute. Thank you. (And ugh, why do my man-shoulders always turn out so small and not manly?)

4.) In retrospect, this one could have used a few leaves spiraling around, but I didn't think of it when I was drawing, so you're just stuck with no leaves. Such is life.

5.) I got cool art pens for Christmas and spent an afternoon playing with them. 

6.) Purple. Art. Pens.

7.) And finally, lastly, and favorite for this week, we have the cute couple one... 'cause... reasons. 


Alright, my people, that's it for this week.

Question Time!
Favorite overall?
Best colored?
Favorite with a quote?
Best black and white?
 What are you up to this weekend?

I love you all.

#Notdead || 2016 Roundup

Hello, people of the internet! 

You are all so awesome to have not abandoned this blog, even though the blogger did. You are good, kind people, and I love you all.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, by the way! How did you all spend it?

I shall be considerably better at blogging from now on, I have been quite literally run off my feet with socializing over December.

ANYWAY, it's time for my annual end-of-the-year tag, and it's gonna be fun!

1.) What did you do in 2016 that you’d never done before?
     2016 was actually a whole year of firsts for me. I flew by myself, I went to Front Sight, I bought a gun, I went on a boat, I cut my hair, I went mini-golfing....

Crazy year. lol.

 2.) Did you keep your New Years’ resolutions, and will you make one this year?

3.) Did anyone close to you give birth?
      My sister did, and I held that baby when he was two hours old and it was freaking amazing.

4.) Did anyone close to you die?
      No, not really. I've been really blessed.

24.) How did you/are you spending New Year’s?
       Okay, this was one of the best New Year's I've celebrated in a while. We were having a Lord of the Rings marathon with Sammi, and so we watched RoTK at her house on New Year's Eve, and it finished at like 4 minutes to midnight... (I know, the timing was perfection.)

So we poured champagne, counted down to the New Year, hooted on noise makers, and popped poppers.

I did some fancy relationship changing on facebook and it was really really awesome. 

25.) Who did you spend the most time on the phone with?
        Gina, cause we pals.

I'm 21 years old.

        Gianluca Ginoble has the most magnificent voice, my people.

        "I'll tell the world, I'll sing a song: It's a better place since you came along."(Better Place, by Rachel Platten.)
         And then probably, "You crossed the line too many times, I'm gonna put you in your place. You play with dynamite don't be surprised when I blow up in your face." (Done, by the Band Perry.)

       1. Art.
       2. Bought a Glock.
       3. Visiting my fantastic sister, and fantastic brother-in-law, and their fantastic kids.

       5. Went to Front Sight.

44.) Five things I want to do in 2017:
        1. Art.
        2. Visit my sisters.
        3. Visit the boyguy. (Inside joke, sorry.)
        4. Get my concealed carry license.
        5. Front Sight

45.) Five people I’d like to know better in 2017:
        This question kills me every year. I can't figure out how to answer it because there are never five people that I actually want to get to know. At the moment, there's only one. 

 And that, my dears, sums up my 2016. 

2016 was simultaneously one of the best and worst years of my life. It started out great, sucked big time* over the summer, and then got better again. 

*I mean. BIG TIME. 

But so far, no year has managed to top 2012 for absolute suckiness so hurray!

I'm looking forward to 2017, it might actually be an awesome year. 

Alright everyone!

Question Time!
Best gif usage?
What did you do for New Year's?
Can you answer at least three of the tag questions for me? I'm interested!

You can expect a Picture Saturday for the first time in freaking ages. 
I love you all!

And here's to 2017! I hope it's wonderful for all of you.
