Zombie Frog (Zombie Kitty Project)

I have three zombie frogs to make and I’m almost done with one. I’m unsure of their personalities; I’m considering making them to be sarcastic, wise guys. 🤔 We’ll see what the final outcome will be.


As you can see, this is a very rough sketch of the frogs but it’s a general idea of what they’ll look like. That line above the center frog was an unwanted “detail” by my toddler. 😑

I decided to start on this guy. I’m eager to get all of them completed.

This is what I’ve got thus far. I’m not done but I thought I’d share what I’ve got at the moment. Hopefully the next frog post will contain all three of the frog sketches. 😄 Stay tuned. 🐸

Loser (Poem)

I’ve been here before

It’s nothing to be proud of

But I cannot ignore

My lack of self love

Because I feel like a failure

I’m good for nothing

And I have to endure

All the self loathing

It’s something I can’t help

Because I feel it daily

These are the cards I’ve dealt

I’m not living gaily

How can I live better

When I want to just die

Because I’m also a debtor

Which is why I break down and cry

It’s all my fault

Things are this way

That my life is at a halt

And I can’t see a better day

I’m the one to blame

Why I’m unhappy

And feel this much shame

Like my life’s a joke, so sappy

No Wins (Poem)

I can’t relax

I’ve met my max

I can’t carry on

The doubters won

I stop right here

I look in the mirror

A loser is what I see

Why can’t I be free

Of these ugly thoughts

In my head it rots

I can’t see a winner

I’m not even a beginner

It’s not even worth it

To climb out of the pit

I sulk in misery

Then scream in agony

Why can’t I be successful

Everything’s so stressful

I don’t know what to do

To make it through

This terrible phase

I’m in a daze

I need to succeed

So, I’ll take lead

With little motivation

It’s better than stagnation.

F Up (Poem) *STRONG LANGUAGE*

Tsk tsk tsk.. I’m sure this poem is self explanatory.


I fucked up

I made a mistake

I’m fed up

With the choices I make

I fucked up

I’m sorry for that

You’re tied up

From my mishap

You fucked up

Why’d you do it?

Now we’re hung up

By all your bull shit

You fucked up

What happened there

I’m shaken up

By your affair

We fucked up

We neglected each other

I just want to make up

And not be a bother

We fucked up

In different ways

Let’s hang it up

This is just a phase

No one’s perfect

We never are

Let’s not neglect

And stay up to par

We mended things up

I’m glad we did

Even though we’re broken up

We’re not livid

We mended things up

We saw eye to eye

Our oneness is up

And we grew from this lie

Completed Zombie Goldfish of the Zombie Kitty Project

I’ll admit it’s not the best clay work but you gotta give me some credit for being a first timer plus I’m working around a toddler who wants to put her hands on everything even though she has her own sketch pad with crayons and a load of toys.

You can see an earlier post of the Goldfish Zombie here: Zombie Kitty Project: Goldfish Zombie

I enjoyed making it. There will be more zombies to come. You can see my original here: Zombie Kitty


Stay tuned for more zombie goodness. I’m eager to tell the story but of course I must iron out the plot and details. Enjoy and thanks for your support. 😸😸😸

Just Some Art Advice

Things aren’t going to be perfect right away. We all want it to be perfect on our first try, whether you’re drawing, painting, writing, etc.

This is going to be a charcoal drawing of my friend and her fiance. As you can see it doesn’t look like much right now; it could be me and a character from Doug. All art pieces have to start somewhere; they’re all just lines and shading/ coloring when you think about it.


These are a couple of my first timers as far as oil pastels go. As you can see, I used them like crayons; technically there’s no right or wrong way to do art, but oil pastels weren’t really meant to be used like crayons.

After trial and error, I was better able to use the oil pastels in this drawing.


Before

After

Remember, you can’t expect the first line, the first stroke, the first word, first whatever you’re doing to be the same as your outcome of the piece you’re working on. Just work through it and see where it takes you. That’s the beauty of art.

A Couple of Poems

This is all meaningless

Everything’s all pointless

So why live in stress?

I should be happy

But it seems far from me

To live in harmony

I choose this disease

Because I didn’t seize

Better opportunities

My life’s at stake

When I chose to take

The money I’d make

Life is so much more

Than just an awful chore

And I can’t ignore

How I spend my time

For just a dime

It should be a crime

To not live fully

Or do things happily

This will change, hopefully.


What you did is unforgivable

I can’t believe you’re this horrible

You seemed so genuine

But you’re not a friend

You’re ugly on the inside

Because you have too much pride

To own up to your mistakes

And do whatever it takes

To make things right

Instead you wanted to fight

And ignore everything you’ve done

Because you wanted to have fun

You’re an awful human being

Who only intended to sting

What you left behind

For a temporary bind

See you in the next life

When you don’t have so much strife
