The Grand Potato by BlackMagdalena
The Grand Potato
My husband and I are huge Lirik fans, this is for him.  The binary reads out a bunch of quotes from the stream. 

A drawing done on a pronto plate.  This is a scan before I attempt to print it, which will likely rub off the design after a few printings. 
Plexiglass Self Portrait by BlackMagdalena
Plexiglass Self Portrait
This is a scan of a piece of plexiglass I was using as an etching plate for printing.  I jacked up the contrast a bunch to make the lines clearer. 
Blue Ringed Octopus by BlackMagdalena
Blue Ringed Octopus
A blue ringed octopus is one of the worlds most venomous ocean creatures.  They die after they mate and eat mollusks by stabbing them right through the shell with their super sharp mouth parts. 

This is a three color print, with very minimal touch up work post scanning.  You can see a sort of step by step of it on my Tumblr here:…  

I'm working on a mixed media version that will be done later. 

Just a friendly reminder, if you like my work, or just like in progress artwork and/or pictures of corgis please check out my Instagram as well:

Hello and thanks for checking out my art.  First my other art websites:

:  Updates and a lot of work in progress pieces on Facebook. 

:  Here I post a lot of half finished works, so please follow me if you like my art.  I also love blogs where people post mainly their own art, especially works-in-progress, so if that describes you, let me know and I'll likely follow you too. 

Instagram:   A lot of pictures of my garden and pets, and a lot of my artwork taken from different angles or with filters.

Etsy:  Unfortunately at this time I don't have anything on Etsy because I'm too busy with school to keep up with running the shop, but I promise to get it restarted one day. 

Prints: My print shop is through my gallery, or at  Let me know if you have any questions, and if you don't see a piece you'd like to buy on there let me know and I'll work on getting it on there.  Also I can't see that I've made a sale, so if you buy something send me a message because it'll make me so happy. 

I attended a special four year art program throughout high school, and have attended several art classes through college.  I do almost exclusively traditional art, and never be afraid to ask me questions about my techniques.  I love to help, and if I get the same question to many times I'll make a tutorial. 

As for my personal life, I'm a 25 year old Army wife, living with my husband who is stationed outside of Fort Campbell, KY. We have been together for almost 10 wonderful years, and have three awesome cats, and an assortment of fish.  I grew up in Sarasota, FL, but have lived in a few different places with the Army, including South Korea.  I am currently a senior undergraduate physics major in college, which I hope to turn into a career studying quantum mechanics.  Besides art, gardening is a huge hobby of mine, especially doing experiments on the plants involving dyes.  I'm also avidly into Game of Thrones, and obsessively follow a bunch of tv shows including Dexter, The Walking Dead, Adventure Time, Hannibal, Arrested Development, The Venture Bros, Homeland, Mad Men, etc.
