I'm that girl. The one picked last in gym class*. The one who ran for class Historian because no one else did**. The one once described as "mild mannered" by her English teacher***.
And now, that girl is competing head on with 4 other artists to secure a spot in the upcoming Neopopstreetfunk 3 art gallery show. And that girl wants it. She wants it so bad.
Strike the competition! (Number 11 of the 40 drawings I challenged myself to complete.)
BUT, I'm going to go ahead and say it. I'm probably the underdog.
Let's count the ways:
1. I'm up against a Houston street artist (and street art is gaining HUGE popularity here).
2. Said street artist has a prominent street art FILM rallying for him. Did I mention said street artist was also mentioned IN the film?
3. Another artist has a hip Houston business rallying for him.
4. From what I can deduce, all other artists have more Facebook friends than I.
And once again, this girl is competing in a grown up popularity contest. Egad!
Uh...make the competition invisible? (A modest little commission I'm working on.)
So, what am I going to do?
I am going to call on you, fellow freaks and geeks****, to go against nature and vote for the unathletic, unpopular, quiet girl...because who else will bring you gems like a barfing Home Alone house?
Make them sick! (Number 12)

*AFTER the new girl! C'MON!!!! I got picked after the NEW girl?!?!?!?! Insulting.
**There's no way I would've won President. Not only was I not cool enough with the cool kids, I wasn't cool enough with the nerd kids...who are the only ones who vote in school elections.
***In a recommendation letter no less!!! I believe the rest of the sentence went something like..."mild mannered, as customary in her culture..." Kids, can you say "ethnic stereotyping"?
****I have decided I am going to model my future parenting style after Freaks and Geeks' Mr. Weir. "Don't smoke pot. I had a friend who smoked pot and now he's DEAD!" "Don't stop studying. I had a cousin who stopped studying and now she's DEAD!" "Don't line your lower lash line. I had a coworker who lined her lower lash line and she EXPLODED!"
*****Only if you are voting for me. Otherwise...clicking these links will cause your computer to spontaneously implode. Kablamo! Voting ends Friday, 5/13.
