Ryan Mauskopf Will Draw Your Portrait For $19

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 23, 2009, 4:15 PM


That's right, an original hand-drawn portrait can be all yours for less than the price of roughly three boxes of strawberry Pop-Tarts.  It's simple!  Here's how to get yours:

1) Drop me an email at Mousekopf@gmail.com with the photo of you that you want to be drawn and your shipping address.

2) Send $19 plus $6 shipping via PayPal to Mousekopf@gmail.com.  Cash in the mail will work as well if you hide it in a birthday card or something.  I will ship internationally; I will also consolidate multiple orders and ship them in one envelope, so two or more orders will essentially ship for free.


And BAM!, in 7-10 days your mailman will PERSONALLY deliver your brand new beautiful portrait RIGHT TO YOUR DOOR!  Each drawing will be a ballpoint pen drawing on tinted acid-free 8.5x11 paper much like the samples below:


CLICK TO ENLARGE


These make great gifts and rags for accidental spills.  I will not be able to offer refunds due to the subjective nature of art in general, but I'll try my darnedest to make a delicious-looking drawing.  This is a limited-time offer, so hurry up!

THE WORST GINGERBREAD HOUSE EVAR:

Photobucket

likeOMFGitsJONNY and i picked up a kit from Dylan's Candy Bar on our way back from dinner at Serendipity 3 (yes, the one from the movie!!) and we didn't do a very good job.  despite its immense suckitude, my roommate Audwee and i have been picking at it over the past couple of days (hence the missing bits of candy on the roof) and it's only a matter of time before it's gone.  om nom nom.
  anyone else getting into the holiday cheer?

So likeOMFGitsJONNY, Audwee, and I carved pumpkins the other night and they came out pretty spiffy!  I managed to snap one photo before they started to grow lots of white fuzzy mold a few days later:

And next to the tranny and the frankenstein thing was Audrey's botched attempt at Barack Opumpkin:


Yeahhhh two days later we punched his face in because it got shriveled up and nasty.  I just wish I could have had the satisfaction of punching McCain instead ;]

So my school is having our halloween party at Madame Toussauds Wax Museum in Times Square on thursday night and it's gonna be faaawesome omg.  I'm dressing up as Velma from scooby doo because I've always wanted to wear a wig and a dress.  It's time to explore my feminine side ^_^  I just hope I don't get raped on the subway...

Anyway I'll post pictures after the party/after-party so you can stare at my beautiful, smooth legs as much as you want.  Ta-ta for now!

TURTLES, JOBS, AND BOYS
-- --
So I said I'd let all of you know when something I did this summer is finally published, so here's the first of what I've found:

Photobucket
via Varsity.com

Yeah... kinda lame haha.  Designing him was a total bitch because my boss was crazy and nitpicked every anatomical nuance of a french bulldog.  After drawing literally hundreds of dogs I angrily scrawled this on the computer and she was like OMG I LOVE IT *facepalm* Then I had to draw him in like a bujillion poses and animate him.  blarg.

Also, say hello to Morgan Freeman, my new lil' baby turtle!

Photobucket

I bought him off the street in union square.  He's a little over an inch long lol.  Morgan Freeman's the replacement of our last pet, Christopher Walken, who sadly died last weekend because my roommate and I are lazy and never changed his water.  Drowning in your own poop... what a horrid way to die D:

I've also met a really cute boy and he's super nice <3  I'm drawing him something extra special right now, so I'll post that after I finish it.  I'm so essited!  In the meantime you can mosey on over to likeOMFGitsJONNY

ta ta for now

What a crazy summer!

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 1, 2008, 2:43 AM
Yeah, I know.  I've been gone for like, ever.

I got a job downtown in SoHo at an ad agency for a couple months.  I had a pretty fun time creating new campaigns for products like Clearasil, Gardasil, and Sunny D, and I got to meet lots of exciting people and go to lots of exciting places.  I was the only designer there, though, so I was entirely overworked and often felt like I was being taken advantage of, so I quit.  When the ads come out, I'll let you know which ones I did :]

My milk expired a couple of days ago and I really want cereal.  Maybe I'll go out to Rite Aid and buy some delicious lactic nourishment.  I find the concept of milk disgusting, though.  I mean, it's milk... from a cow.  I'd be a vegan, but being a vegetarian is hard enough.  Besides, what else would I pour on top of my honey bunches of oats?  They would fail to be a whole lotta yum, quite honestly.

Oh, Oh!  And I got new glasses, so I'll post pictures of those as soon as I shower.  Holy fuck, do I need a shower... It's like a hundred degrees in here and my shirt smells like fish.  And I haven't gone fishing...

Ta Ta for now.  Peace <3

FAQ

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 1, 2008, 2:25 AM
A lot of you have been sending me notes, and I haven't had much time to answer.  I'm really really sorry!  I don't hate you, I promise.  That's why I'm putting my FAQ here, so you can know everything you need to know about me without legally being considered a stalker:

Q: WHERE DO YOU GO TO COLLEGE?  DO YOU LIKE IT?!
A: I go to SVA (School of Visual Arts) in Manhattan.  It's fantastic, but a little overpriced.

Q: I WANNA APPLY!  GOT ANY PORTFOLIO SUGGESTIONS?  DO YOU THINK I CAN GET IN?
A: Don't sweat it, pretty much everyone gets into SVA.  Try putting your best pieces into your portfolio, rather than focusing on variety and quantity.

Q: CAN I PUT ONE OF YOUR PIECES ON MY WEBSITE?
A: Sure, just don't forget to credit me!

Q: HOW DID YOU GET SO GOOD?
A: *Condescending giggle* Oh, sir, you flatter me!  Just be daring, and don't be afraid to try things that are totally out of your league.  You won't get anywhere by playing it safe!  Be patient and keep on working.

Q: WHAT PROGRAMS DO YOU USE? WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR TEXTURES?
A: I use Photoshop CS3 and Painter X with a Wacom Intuos 2 9x12 tablet.  I tend to work from start to finish on the computer because I'm fickle and change things a lot so the undo button is my most valuable tool.  I get my textures from imageafter.com, although I'm trying to use them less now because they're kinda corny.  If you're going to prominently feature a texture, though, it's more artsy and original to just take a macro photo of something yourself.

That's about it!  If there are any other huge questions, feel free to ask in the comments below.

Peace <3

My Apartment, My Camera, and My Frankenstein

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 15, 2008, 9:49 PM
I got my camera!!  yay!! ^_^

Photobucket

It's so fun to play with!  my roommate and i have been doing some photoshoots here and there, and hopefully we'll get to go to central park soon and strike some fierce poses.  here's Audwee in our backyard on a particularly sunny morning -->

Photobucket

Oh, and some of you wanted to see my swingin' new pad, so here it is :]

THE FOYER/LIVING ROOM/KITCHEN

Photobucket

MY ROOM

Photobucket

THE BATHROOM

Photobucket

I'd show you Audwee's room, but it's a mess ;]

and tonight i went to see mel brooks' Young Frankenstein on broadway, which was fucking hilarious.

Photobucket

if you're in the area, you should totally see it.  i mean, come on... where else can you see megan mullally sing about her tits?  her huge, fuckin' tits.

...ew.

there's always that gray cloud, though.  i sprained my ankle in central park the other day and it's swollen to the size of a small kiwi fruit haha.  i was being stupid and trying to balance on a fence, and i fell on my foot sideways with an audible K-R-A-C-K.  ouch.  at least the hospital bracelet they gave me is an awesome shade of neon purple, so i'm keeping that as free jewelry ^_^

also, if you haven't seen it yet, check out the six-page preview of BLUEBLOOD i posted.  more to come later, once tokyopop says i can ^_^

always look on the bright side of life!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2008, 5:44 PM
OH MAH GAWDZ

It's been like, the CRAZIEST month ever.  I sacrificed my social life for four solid weeks to finish up BlueBlood (my 34-page manga pilot for TOKYOPOP), and I'll be posting the pages sometime this week for you all to read and enjoy.

Photobucket


I also was doing the album art for Beast From Sea's debut album, but that's not gonna happen due to creative differences.  Oh well.

Then, there's the new apartment I moved into here in NYC.  It's amaaazing, and it's got exposed brick and insanely high ceilings and even a backyard.  Audwee and I got kind of frustrated/physically injured putting all the IKEA furniture together, but it was totally worth it.

I'd post pictures of the new place, but my camera broke because I dropped it while I was taking the photos for my LIFE SUCKS deviation.

>>>UPDATE: I GOT A NEW CAMERA!  YAY!

Photobucket


It's a Canon Digital Rebel XT and it's the cheapest, smallest DSLR I could find.  Nude photoshoots are gonna be sooo awesome now ;]


Also, I got weekend tickets to New York Comic Con!  Who else is going?  Who else is as big a nerd as I am?  Who else is gonna max out his credit card on the coolest shit that he'll never need to buy but is gonna buy anyway because it's so cool that it just entirely transcends über awesomeness?

[update] Btw, someone sent me the most amazing birthday package with a Bansky artbook, a wrist warmer, a button that says "I <3 Canadian Boys", and a really pretty card!  I'd love to know who you are!  Don't be shy!  And thank youuuu!!!! :D

it's my birthday!  nineteeeeen!  and that means absolutely nothing haha.  the legal drinking age is two years away anyway... although that hasn't stopped me yet ^_^

speaking of drinking, i got completely smashed last night, wandered the city with Audwee, and watched project runway and harry potter & the chamber of secrets.  i woke up and found two big bags of ricecakes, four bottles of bacardi, and a box of honey bunches of oats in my kitchen and i have no memory of ever buying them lol.  a bottle of pinot grigio, half a 40, and some raspberry bacardi will do wonders.

i'm totally not lame.  nawwww.  although dumbledore is fucking HILARIOUS when you're drunk.  that beard is   c-r-a-z-y!

oh also, if you could, check out :iconuglytoes: for his new commission rates.  if you need some fancy shmancy arts, he's your man.  his journal's got all the info if you're interested: uglytoes.deviantart.com/journa…
