Yayyy christmas break is almost here! I'm sorry for not being on here much, I've been really busy, and not all of what I like to do creatively as of right now is digital artwork. I'm really into jewelry and clothing making, so if that's okay then I'll post that on here too. <3 meanwhile you can follow me on my Tumblr: kimbarose.tumblr.com/

Ah, I love this time of year...I think of how much I miss snow, and playing in it, lol living down south means no snow, and kind of takes away from the holiday feeling for me. Without snow I feel like I'm just buying people things for the holidays. I also think of decorating the tree and watching the sound of music. And back when I used to believe in santa, THOSE WERE THE DAYS! I found these cool reversible jeans on modcloth.com, and I'm like "SANTA I BELIEVE" becuase they are really expensive, and I would need a miracle to get them!
Luckily I'm going to see snow for Christmas this year! The first time in like 8 years. So hooray for that!

Question: What do you think of when the holidays come around? Please leave a comment!

So it's back to school for me! But no worries, I am sure I will have time for Justin Time! I have fewer classes, and I am pretty good at prioritizing. I really wish I still had a subscription because I liked to look up the lesser know artists and feature them in my journal. It makes me feel good knowing I can give people a little more views towards their work. I know when I first started coming on here I would have appreciated it, lol.
Lately I've been just going to the beach and watching those cheesy Masters of Horror movies off of netflix. I love them. My Favorite one liek that is by After Dark Horrorfest, it's called The Broken. It was subtly creepy in all the right ways. It played more on the psychological creepy then it did the gory sort of creepy.
What's your favorite horror movie on netflix? PLease write it in the comments!! I want to hear from you all. <33

School has been out for me since the 5th, and it feels good!! Right now I'm sorting everything out making time for my activities.
I am going to be posting more frequently, and I'm assembling a fashion design portfolio of all of the clothing I've made over the past few years. Who knows, I might get a job out of it!
I will also be visiting my sister and her new baby in June. AND I am on my way to getting braces! I finally have enough money, so I'm going to do the prep stuff like cleanings and fillings before I go.

Features: I'd also like to feature some artists on here so please either suggest people who deserve more love or even yourself! I'll feature 10 a week starting today.

Question: Would anyone be interested in something like a Justin Time necklace/keychain or phone charm? Not just Justin time, any 3 other things would do. (Like cute owls, deer, my nightmare chick, black trees, anime stuff, etc..) They'd only be like 5$. I want to get an idea of who would be interested before hand so I can place my order on printsess.com  
*Note me please if you are interested! I am very excited about this and I wanted to share my enthusiasm with you guys. :heart:

Haaaaaa, so my friends and I went around a few neighborhoods, and into a Wal-Mart yesterday for Halloween. We started I think around 7, so we were kinda late in the game. People apparently don't know the rule of: If you don't have candy, then turn off your house light! Cause we walked up to a lot of houses who turned us away. After we all finished up, we went back to my friend's apartment, dumped our candy out on the floor, and before you know it, we were trading like crazy! Everyone was smoking candy cigars and made shady deals. Stuff like, "I'll give you all my tootsie rolls for your skittles..." I think since i can't eat most of the candy (hurts my teeth) I was trading for quality rather than quantity. I was willing to give away like half my stash for any one particular thing i wanted. In the end, of course like always i ended up with the least amount of candy, but it was all stuff I knew i liked and was gonna eat for sure. Towards the end of the trade i was getting pretty desperate, my pal :iconmajutsu13: was taunting me with her watermelon airhead, i ended up giving her 2 almond joys and 2 baby ruths for it. she originally wanted like5 almond joys, i think i bargained with her pretty well! Lol. anyone else play the candy trading game with their friends? I think this is the 3rd year my friends and I have done it. Seems to be the highlight of Halloween for me.

Happy Halloween! NEW WEBCOMIC: Justin Time

Hey guys! My new webcomic is coming out today! I'ma update it every monday and friday!
Check it out here: justintime.smackjeeves.com/com…

Hope everyone has a fun Halloween! I went to Halloween horror nights for the first time yesterday, my boyfriend dragged me there even though i said i don't like "Boo!-scary". I was able to control myself from screaming! Whew. It was generally fun, and I got totally tired too. But! That doesn't stop me from trick or treating. This year I'm going as Lady Ga Ga again, cause people actually know who she is now. When I first went as her at megacon, I was just that super tall weirdo blond girl running around in a leotard and a red hood. Hopefully now people will either chuck raw meat at me or start dancing choppy while singing telephone. I'm gettin pretty hardcore about it. I'm drawing all of her visible tattoos on myself, and I'm using fake eyelashes.
What are you guys gonna be fore Halloween? Leave comments! I'm interested!

Tough Times

Hey guys, I'm going through some tough times right now, but I'll try to keep the art flowing.
I was planning on tailoring a bunch of old clothing I got from my gramma into new, fashionable indie looking garments, but JoAnn's Fabrics place just doesn't wanna cooperate with me. I asked if I could possibly come in during their sewing class/club whenever they hold it (and possibly pay if there's a fee) so I could borrow an adjustable sewing manikin. Even though their site promotes themselves by saying Joann's helps create potential fashion job opportunities, I'm NOT allowed to have this opportunity. Their sewing classes is apparently very "structured" and all students must learn "sewing 101: the basics" first. Smart, creative people like me who's KNOWN how to sew since I was 11, and took "sewing 101" during Home Ec. in 7th grade, are not allowed to simply borrow or rent their services. The funny thing is, the nice lady from the main customer service line for Joann's told me it was up to the store manager at the Joann's where i lived to decide if i could do this or not. That's what pissed me off. It wasn't Joann's who was denying me a potential job opportunity, it was the stuck up, old bitty store manager from my local Joann's who was not open minded or nice enough to let a creative person with a passionate dream get anywhere. So now I'm left with my only other option, which is to buy the cheapest friggin sewing manikin set to my size. And that's around $120. Thanks bitty. I hope flushing my savings will get me far past them and their granny workshops.
Second unfortunate issue,
I've been having some strange shoulder problems lately. A bone seems to be protruding from my right shoulder blade, and i've yet gone to the doctor to find out what it is. I believe it's due to me sleeping on that shoulder every night for a month or so, but my dad thinks otherwise. it doesn't hurt when i move my arm in any direction really, it just gets tired easily, or feels a little worn out. it's uncomfortable to lay on, and it's definitely bone. I'm hoping my dad will schedule some kind of doctor's appointment soon. if it was my left shoulder, I'd be okay with waiting a little longer, but i don't want this to hinder my drawing abilities in the future.
Third issue,
I'm having some problems with the love of my life and his family.
i know i want to be with him forever, but while my family allows me to have the free relationship i want, his doesn't. so until he's at a stable point where he can make decisions for himself, we're taking a step back from things. I am hoping that when it all blows over we'll be able to have the relationship we deserve and want. I am not looking for sympathy about this issue, and that is why I'm not going into detail about it. i am just saying that it may cause me to produce either less artwork, or more. sometimes when I'm unhappy i get better at drawing, and sometimes i don't find a reason to do anything productive.
I know for sure that when i move into my new room next weekend, a lot is going to be going on. I'm gonna get to paint my new room, and decorate it. hopefully I'll be able to get pics of that. i also have to STILL get my driver's license, I know, lazy me.
My sister is also getting married this summer! so i gotta go see that.
like i said, i got a lot to do, and i just wanted to update it to the 2 out of the 120 something people who watch me and actually talk to me. lol

Yeah, so i got a new phone. One of those Nokia Nuron things. I don't really like it, It doesn't seem to matter what kind of phone i have, they all hate me and like to do stupid stuff.. I guess i just gotta wait a while to get used to it..
Well, the plus side to it is that I'll be able to take more pics of the stuff I'm doing outside of digital art!
I drew a lot of plushie designs not too long ago and i think i might buckle down and make a few for Etsy. I like the idea of Etsy, lol. If i put anything up on my Etsy I'll post it on here!
I know I haven't been very active on here, but I'm gonna get right back into it! :heart:


This past Wednesday I won best of Show at the art show for my school.
I had like 14 pieces in it, i think two were sketches, six were traditional and five were digital, and i brought a pair of shoes i painted in.
the whole thing was really great except for the fact that they spelled my last name wrong on the certificate and all of the programs.
they spelled it "Kotchi" when it's "Kotschi." Not to mention that my art teacher murdered it when he announced it.
ughhh i had to give a speech and i was getting cold feet.
my friends told me to just look at the person I'm most comfortable with in the crowd while i speak, but that didnt help either.
i ended up looking at them and i burts out laughing. more than once.
i just cant help it, i get get giggly when I'm nervous.
my art teacher was making me laugh too becuase he's so annoying with his whole "square root of a maple tree it turquoise." speech.
haaaaaaa...
well at least i did what i always wanted to do.
I already had a second and third place award from two other art shows, and a 1st place for a Spanish honors society thingy.
it's just been my goal to win the school art show for a long time.
i didn't get most artistic though becuase that ended up being more of a popularity contest, plus no one can figure out how to spell my last name to save their lives.
who's most artistic now bi--Jk!!!! Haha.
if i ever get a camera I'll take pics of all my big paintings and my shoes. they are really awesome!! >.< :heart:

Oh! I'm thinking about getting a tattoo apprenticeship this summer. does anyone know how that works?
any info would be a big help!! i love the idea of tattooing my art on people for a living.

Okay, So i got the plaid shirt i wanted to make in like two days like a few months ago in case any of you invisible people are wondering, also i haven't started on my squid plushy yet becuase i want to get one thing done at a time instead of half-assing everything i do.  I've been kind of busy with school work and applying for scholarships and stuff for college, but I'll try to put up stuff as often as i can! I wanna do a few sketch dumps becuase i have so much unseen artwork that i wanna show you guys, also I'm ALMOST done with my scarf, hopefully i can finish that up and take a few pics to put up on here. also, i want to redo my old comic Prima, maybe rewrite my book Last Light, and all that jazz. Still so busy!

OMG, I have never had o much I've wanted to do at one time before!!!

Currently I am sewing together a plaid button up shirt. (I got these adorable little leaf buttons with faces!!)
In order to do that though, I had to make a body cast of my torso using duct tape. (I nearly passed out making it with my friends! I see why victorian women burned their bras...)
Also! I have recently discovered this lovely website called adoptasquid that sells these GORGEOUS but really expensive giant (And I mean GIANT) squid dolls. they range from 8 to 19 feet in length, and they are beautifulllll!!!!!!!!! I put in an offer to try and get the most recent one she has made named Henrietta, but if I don't I'll just make one of my own. Tis all cool as long as I have a giant squid in my life. <3333
Plus! I am working on getting my Kim Possible Halloween costume together! If I can get pictures, I'll put em up.
I am almost done with my Doctor who scarf by the wayy!! I've been kinda on and off about it scince i have school now to deal with.. I cant work on it for 8 hours straigth everyday like I did this past summer. >.< BUT I WILL GET IT DONE!! it'll be about 15 ft in length when its completed. I've already gone through two balls of yarn in each color!!
Finally, I have a very special project that I can't talk about quite yet. It has to do with my art class at school, but not even they will know. it's going to be the biggest and longest project I've ever done, but who knows? maybe it'll pay off! (Literally, I want to get a scholarship at an artschool.)
