Pssht who needs under-drawings?
Feels good to be painting again.
These are some gorgeous wave paintings by a extremely talented classmate of mine, Nina Fitzpatrick. She is a senior at LCAD studying Fine Art.
Thursday night, she using the crosswalk at school when she was hit by a car driven by a elderly woman. She immediately went into a coma and has remained in very critical condition. Her brain is extremely low and they are going to pull the plug.
I didn’t know Nina that well, but whenever I saw her at the senior studios, she always had a big smile and give a friendly “hello”. It is very upsetting to see such a wonderful person go when this easily could’ve been avoided, but I don’t want to rage on about that. I want to celebrate her life, even if I only got tiny glimpses of it. She will very much be missed <3
I went to highschool with her as well as LCAD. She was in my marine science table group my senior year of highschool.
I got to spend time with Nina during a few beach clean-ups hosted by Surfrider in Laguna, as well as just seeing her and chatting around LCAD. She was just this incredibly positive, welcoming, beautiful soul who only had good things to say about the world around her. I wish I’d had more time to spend with her on those beach clean-up days, and my heart goes out to her and her family during this time.
Be well, Nina. We’ll miss you incredibly.
I had to take a break from working on the book to just draw some weird random crap. So here is a mutant bunny dog thing.
