Hello. You've reached Laura, an eccentric 20-something gal from the Bay Area California who likes to tell stories and make things.

About Me: I grew up in the Silicon Valley area and moved over the hill to Santa Cruz, loving every minute of my hippy-dippy/beachy home. I have a tendency to be a little depressing and morbid in casual conversation (I'll try to avoid that on here) and my interests lie firmly in the triple Cs: comedic, cute, and creepy. I've gone to Cabrillo College and San José State over the past five years, studying a lot of pointless but fun general education and art, so if you want to know pointless but fun or art stuff, I've got knowledge to spare! I work at an airbrush booth at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, which is kind of like being at a crazy party every day-I never now what to expect, meet lots of people for a minute who I'll probably never see again, and usually have a good time despite minor headaches and dizziness afterward. Plus I get to draw with cool equipment all day! Both school and work give me opportunities to make more things to share here.

About my art: I seriously need to do more digital work, but for now, I like to play around with virtually every traditional medium except charcoal… messy stuff. Guache and me are starting to get along after a particularly annoying class, but it can get on my nerves too. My all-time favorite medium is watercolor but I don't use it as much as acrylics. I realized through school that I can appreciate conceptual/fine art from a distance but I'm more of a low-brow/commercial artist type. My dream is to write and illustrate my own stories and help other people with theirs, though I probably have the family curse of becoming a teacher. Time and probably a couple of college degrees will tell if my fears are confirmed…

I might not get back to you right away but if you like my work or even just want to talk, you can note me here or drop me an email at

Other Places to Find Me:

A Tumblr of some sort: Coming Soon!
A better Youtube channel than the one I have now: Coming Soon! page (yes, I'm a proud nerd):…

And last but not least, my side deviantart account. This is where I post my more mature/personal/horror/nudey/political stuff. If that sounds cool to you, check me out here:…

Hope to talk to you soon!
Hey guys. Believe it or not, I didn't drop off the face of the Earth for the past five months since I wrote a journal entry. Oh my do I have a lot of messages to go through… I watch too many people here.

This has definitely been my most challenging semester since I started going to college. Fifteen units and three weekly gigs equals no time. It also equals my old friend depression coming back to tell me how I'm wasting time and money and really have no business being an artist. Such a good friend, isn't she? I wish I could say I knew how things will go from here on in. I just applied to a caricature job on the boardwalk and am already back to airbrushing on the weekends. If you happen to be in Santa Cruz, I might be able to meet you at Broken Board Airbrush!

School-wise, if I push myself for two more semesters I can have a BA in design studies, with an emphasis in Illustration and Animation. I'd be happy with that, but I don't know what kind of job I could get with it. Almost everyone in my family becomes a teacher so I probably have the family curse. I'm already teaching after school classes for little kids. No matter what, I really think it's time for things to change. I fantasize about moving out of the family home all the time, but it's so hard to make that big step financially.

Oh, also, I officially have an Associate's Degree! Now I just need to paint a frame for it. I want to get something nice and try to incorporate elements from my favorite classes I took at community college like Color and Design, Creative Writing, World Music, Classic Voice, Death and Dying Psychology, Plant Biology, and Intermediate Painting. Then again, I've made vows to make similar projects in the past (need I remember the memorials?) and failed to deliver, so don't hold me to it.

I'm going to be uploading some art and writing here in the next few weeks. There's a lot of stuff from school and doodles I want to share, though it's only a small fraction of all the crap I made in my most recent painting class. So… many… pieces of fruit! I'm not sure how much of the essays or my finished screenplay I want to share, but yup. I wrote a feature-length screenplay. I've never felt so bewildered about writing anything.

Lately I've been writing some Little Shop of Horrors fanfiction again. I'm torn between some ideas on what to do with the inspiration. I REALLY need to revise some of my old work and post it here and on ArchiveofourOwn, but I also really want to make some fan illustrations for it and plan some ideas out for a graphic novel pitch I just can't shake off. Even more, I really REALLY want to get the fan club off the ground. so if you like me for my Little Shop of Horrors work, why not join the club?

Expect a few things to change around here like my icon, tagline, gallery and profile over the summer. Hopefully I'll have more to talk about by the end. In case I don't get to it, happy early birthday to me!
