The Return.

Last week we had a male model. I was a bit rusty, having been away from my nudes for over a year.

But last night was better... Enjoy.

Figure Drawing Returns!

I've been wanting to do more figure drawing, but the studios offered at UC always seem to conflict with my architecture classes...bummer. However, I've been doing some research and the Cincinnati Art Academy offers community education classes each quarter...some of which are night classes once a week...and it doesn't cost that much money...PERFECT! So while I'm on my next co-op quarter, coming up in September, I'm going to register for one of these classes. Yay!

They offer all kinds of fun community courses ranging from water color, painting, book binding and dreamweaver. This may prove to be a nice scheduled "playtime" to oppose the constant pressures from "real" school! Look for some posts by the end of September!

You may wonder how I got a degree in interior design after seeing the fuscia that is now my living room!
This is not for the faint of heart...viewers beware...don't try this at home!

"Katie Carloftis"

I finally painted a room in my apartment! The dining room is now "Scotland Isle" and I love it!! I just need to hang some pictures tonight... And I've been planting some pretty flowers. Yay for Spring. Notice the little green watering can, I got that from Target...too cute.

No school for 12 weeks, just a co-op starting next week. Which means I'll nights and weekends free to play with my new wacom tablet. First experiment below. I took a photograph of my mom when she was little and "painted" over it. Cute.

Here are some pages from my new portfolio, which will hopefully get me a really good co-op next quarter!

I saw this on Abbey's blog and decided to do one. Create an m&m resembling yourself or someone else by going to

it's fun and a great way to procrastinate!

So, this blog is becoming more and more about my apartment...I'm not sure how that happened. I guess it's what I'm into currently. One day (soon) I'll get back to drawing...for now, here is a pic of my newly uncluttered mantle. I took it a couple of weeks ago when my tree was still up. I was also able to hang the chandelier that I made in undergrad next to the chair.

Riveting, I know.

Fruits of my labor...

My office is slowly becoming organized thanks to my new Crate and Barrell Madison buffet which is housing all of my art/office supplies. I'm still in need for one more small storage component to get rid of the rest of those ugly plastic drawers under my desk...all in good time...
