re-launch: introducing icky monster

I love blogging. I have been having so much fun with it, designing and coming up with content and expressing myself internet style. It's such a fun and positive creative outlet. But ever since starting, I've been trying to find my niche in the blogosphere and it just hasn't happened yet, until now. Although I totally dig it and the girls who keep it going, I realized I'm not quite a cutesy hipster/indie blogging queen and I just can't quite fit into that mold. But now I think I've finally found my real internet soul.

I'm proud to announce the re-launch of my blog, which I am now 100% proud of, as icky monster. I finally feel comfortable in my internet skin. I will now be and I am staying here. The name Icky Monster was inspired by my drawings because mostly they’re icky and mostly they’re monsters. I have also changed my tumblr and pintrest names accordingly (twitter user ickymonster already exists! fail!). I'm going to let my artwork influence my blog a lot more from here on out. I'm pretty excited about all this. Oh, and be sure to check out my new arty layout, which is probably still a work in progress.

–adjective, ick·i·er, ick·i·est. Informal.

a legendary animal combining features of animal and human form or having the forms of various animals in combination, as a centaur, griffin, or sphinx.
any creature so ugly or monstrous as to frighten people.

So, hi, from icky monster.
I hope every one likes the new direction! I'd love some thoughts.
