Blue note by lily-fox Blue note by lily-fox
This was my expression all last night, after a withering bout of dissatisfaction with my own art. Itís a terrible idea to compare your work to someone elseís, ever, because it wonít get you anywhere. Alls you can do is use your frustration, I guess.

My husband refers to Jenny as ďthat girl you draw when youíre upsetĒ. Heís not totally wrong. I guess Jenny makes me feel stronger, and I need her most when Iím angry. And Iím angry a lot.

This became something better, though. Girls in tuxedo shirts turn me on, and I feel like Jennyís grown-out Ďdo is more right for her than the mohawk. The pose is kind of masculine, which I like. Smokingís for fools, of course, but. Sometimes, to make a point.

materials: pencil, paper + PS8
music: Neil Finn, "Sinner"

I've missed jenny. This was definitely the highlight of the 800 deviations in my inbox. And ill miss the mohawk. I just relate her to it. Having said that, I'm loving the new look (:

God I am in love with her. I've been saving your stuff for last as I clean out my inbox on the off chance I'd get to end my day with Jenny. And I got to. Thank you, love.

Also, thank you for making someone so amazing.

I can't not mention it. heck, I said something on tumblr, doubting you would see it and you did and your answer kind of made my month. It's all I can do to repay you for all of your kindnesses to me.
