Okay this is getting scary

That dead body they found on Ortega Highway last night turned out to definitely be the body of that abducted 5 year old, Samantha.

I don't get it, why is all this happening so close to me?
I live just a few minutes from the place where Danielle Van Damme
was taken *my friend lives in her neighborhood and i went there a lot*
and my dad's girlfriend lives only a few minutes from where her body was found.

Now, a dead girl is found right by my art school????! I honestly don't understand how a parent could let a stranger get so close to their kids. Her friend said that the man came up to her and asked her if shed seen his lost chihuahua and then he took her!
Its not a point of whether parents are teaching their kids about strangers or not, its a point of "are the parents watching the kids?" Samantha obviously knew the man was up to no good, he just snatched her before she could do anything/defend herself. Her friend said she had to *run to go tell her mom*. where was the mom in all this??!

But how does one look after their kid without being one of those nervous paranoid parents who wont let their kids go outside without a sweater and a leash?
My parents taught me all the basics and stuff, but they also had the "password idea" where if someone was picking me up from school and saying "your mommy couldnt be here so they asked me to pick you up from school" i would ask them "whats the password?"
and if they didn't know it, my parents obviously didnt send them. Even if it was someone i knew.

Once this proved faulty because my friend from the office, Carol Anne *i had adult friends in the art department of my dads ad agency* came to pick me up and i went ahead with her and she asked "arent you supposed to ask me 'whats the password'?"


She then told me im supposed to ask it even if its a friend. I didnt understand it at the time, but i do now, because the first suspects are ALWAYS family/family friends or neighbors.

so, be specific when teaching your kids/younger siblings, cuz we dont know better *pinches own cheeks*

Also, dont move to where i live, Rancho Bernardo (RB) or Poway *where Blink182 is from* because we have the highest concentration of sex offenders in all of San Diego county. Oh sure, its an old person community, very nice and clean, but what you don't know would make you throw up. I had a registered sex offender in my neighborhood, a meth lab in my other neighborhood that exploded and lots more stuff. So yeah, i guess things aren't always what they seem. Be careful, and don't walk alone at night...or ill sneak up and abduct you myself *evil laugh*

If you're an artist, NEVER get paid by the hour

'Tis true because if you happened to be fast, like i am apparently, then you will have done a lot of work for cheap =P

This is what I got accomplished on my day off:
one picture of aleu
one picture of balto's head
one picture of jenna's head
one picture of a possible Jenna adopt a character for The Ice Cave

A surprise baby picture for Graywolf..right here:
Look familiar, Silver, Tav and CW? ;)
First half of Arbeywolf's (Cyphermutt's) commission which is right here

Raeann, if you would like me to send you the version without the watermark for an avatar, please let me know

Sprites made:
one balto sprite
one jenna sprite
one steele sprite
and a surprise sprite for Silver Huskey (here ya go Silver)

Silver, I sent all those to you via e-mail so go check! =)

All of the above plus a commission i did for Bear the fennec and Vesta's commission
This is Bear....You can commission me to ink your character on Bristol too if youd like *hint hint* I have one on auction but if you are one of my live journal/TIB/RL buddies (or my boyfriend) just contact me and ill give you a "buddy discount"
That book hes reading says "famous fennecs" heh...funny =P

Its such a pain in the ass to scan things cuz im on a laptop thats messed up and i have to unplug it, RUN to the next room *cuz it loses power fast* plug it into the scanner, stand there and scan things, then unplug it and run to the livingroom and send them.

So anyways, all in all i'd say it was a VERY productive day!
And i still haven't done my homework *slaps own wrist* im bad i know.
Anyhoo, please, let me know what you think!
As for sprites, in case you havent seen them yet i made some for CW and Radar

I like the CW one the best out of those. I REALLY like the silver huskey one. I could use it as a template to make other sled dog ones if i really wanted *sigh* i dont want to right now though. besides i may not cuz it was a special present for her and i want it to stay special. okay..i wont..*needed some assurance there*

Anyhoo, im very pleased with my accomplishments, i think im going to get work on a Tiffalynx drawing, i just got inspired =)
