ZOMG Painting!

I've been doing some painting over the past few weeks. It started with the whelping box. My mom asked me to paint a design on it and it's been a work in progress for almost 4 weeks now. I think it's almost done (see how big the puppies are getting? They're 3 weeks old now! How the time flies...)

Then I was really bored over the weekend and got the brilliant idea to mess around with a pair of old jeans I have.
They're not the most flattering pair and they also have a hole in the knee, but their paintjob was just what they needed to make me love them again!
I decided to paint characters from Homestarrunner.com completely on a whim. I LOVE that site! All of the cartoons are so funny and strangely addicting.
First I did The Cheat:

Then the next day I got around to doing Homestar:

Here's the placement on those (sorry about the toe shot. Ew!):

I did The King of Town today:

Here's his placement:

I love them! The Cheat cracked a little bit when I wore them yesterday, so I'm going to have to be extra careful with them. Hopefully it won't happen after I heat set everything.
These are kind of a work in progress. I'm having so much fun with them I want to paint until I don't have any room left!
I sense it becoming another addiction :D
