slef portrait


Errr...hate comeputers today. This is the fourth attempt at posting this.
Anyway, here is my week one illustration. Yes, Janis, those are peoples souls that I've captured. They do bear a striking resemblence to yellow butterflies.

Thats a lie, your pants aren't that tight!

Nice portrait though, I like the color. You're really creepy.

golly gee meg, don't you think you used too much red on your face? hmmm, maybe its my computer... ;)

for serious though, glowing red eyes, thats what you need, ... and my soul is definitely not yellow, It is rainbow with sparkles....lots of sparkles. NO! Black, like a pirate.....either way, neither appears to be in your little net. Ha.

Also...what is a slef portrait?

Meg Shaw said...

dear janis,
I hate you. Your soul WAS yellow, because you are weak and indecisive. I caught, roasted and ate it in March of last year, so I know waht colour it was.

A slef portrait is code for self portrait. I know, I know...it's difficult to decipher, but some very smart people can figure it out.

And you should fix your monitor.;)

i likes your self image, very true to life, p.s. can i buy my sould back for a cracker ?

Meg Shaw said...

sorry sloth, no refunds or exchanges on souls. You see, I eat them.

So you can see the color of people's souls ?
How interesting !

I really like your art (I landed on your blog by a combination of chances) and I left a comment about what "ratatouille" actually is...

This is a slef portrait?

I like the color choices, but I don't think you're giving yourself enough credit....

Meg Shaw said...

Morgane- THanks fpr the comments...do you have a blog I can visit? Nothing showed up on your profile...

Will- yes, its a slef portrait. I has to make it evil and ugly or Janis would never shut up about it.

Morgane said...

I have a livejournal, but I can't draw (I think my skills have stopped growing when I was about 6). And not sure it will interest you as it is in french...

Mark is really everywhere... How does he manage that ?

Mark said...

I like! This is one of my very favorites so far!
(Morgane's journal is Fairy_Gany on LiveJournal - you can always use Babelfish or Freetranslation.com for a good laugh!)

Meg Shaw said...

thanks Mark!
and I won't even have to use bable fish to visit Morgane because I understand French!
