Jerky. Jerkmeister. Jerkster. Jerk-a-licious. Her Highness the Jerk Face Supreme (hold the mushrooms).
Because long after I'd posted last night's blog entry about all my wonderfully talented friends and family - slept soundly and then worked all day today - it dawned on me that, if I'm going to give special shout outs to a number of my lovelies, especially those who are quite possibly literally starving artists, I might not want to forget one in particular.
Jane, you ignorant slut.
In order to (hopefully) redeem myself, I'd like to take a special opportunity to tell you about Zero Hour! - the infamous Patty Leidy.
|Patty as drawn by Patty and shamelessly stolen from her blog. Hopefully this isn't the face she was making after reading last night's post.|
Patty is a cartoonist, painter, all-around artist, and collector of fabulously retro toys (y'all should see her PEZ collection!). Her work is fun, whimsical, and, of late, liberally peppered with nipples of the female variety (if paintings of women and their nipples offend you, you probably can just stop right here). She is the featured cartoonist at We Be Girls - an online rag for women. She does commissioned pieces and also draws cartoons as a favor to her friends (*sigh*).

So, you see? That's why I'm a Jerk Face Galore.
While Patty would live the dream of Full-Time Artist - and sort of is without choice - right now, until the economy picks up or she miraculously finds a job - art is her only choice.
It's either that or sell off the PEZ collection. And no one wants to read about that (except she totally is selling it off *double sigh*).
To learn more about Patty:
