Hello!

My name is Heather Rooney.

I am an illustrator specializing in photorealistic colored pencil and graphite drawings.

Since finding my passion for portrait and figure drawing in high school, I have developed a technique focusing on high attention to detail. I draw my inspiration from a broad range of cultural figures, such as sport athletes, media personalities and entertainment professionals.

With each illustration requiring many hours of work, ranging from 30 hours to 100+ hours, I share my process through time-lapse videos on my YouTube channel, which has generated over 60 million views from a global audience.

I received my B.A. in Studio Art at Emmanuel College, in the vibrant city of Boston, Massachusetts. I am now pursuing a career in illustration.

NO PLACE FOR THEM

This Thanksgiving, No Place for Refugees at the American Table
Posted on Nov 18, 2015
By Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan

In the wake of the horrific attacks in Paris on Nov. 13, there has been a crushing backlash against refugees from the wars in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. As Americans prepare for one of the most popular national holidays, Thanksgiving, which commemorates the support and nourishment provided by the indigenous people to English refugees seeking a better life free from religious persecution, a wave of xenophobia is sweeping the country.

In the U.S. Congress, no less than six separate bills have been put forward to block any federal funding to resettle refugees from Syria or Iraq and to empower states to deny entry into their “territory.” 

Imagine if all of a sudden we had 50 “statelets” creating their own border checkpoints, stopping all travelers, looking for anyone suspicious, i.e., any and all Syrians.

So far, 31 state governors have essentially demanded this.

Republican Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback issued an executive order forbidding any agency of state government from cooperating in any way with Syrian refugee support efforts. House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have called for a pause in the Syrian refugee program, with the support of Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer.

(all so called Chrstians)

It has been almost 400 years since that first, fateful Thanksgiving feast in Massachusetts.

Xenophobic policies like those threatening to shut out refugees from these wars, if allowed to stand, should serve as a shameful centerpiece at every Thanksgiving table this year.

Thoughts for today, #288 .… “We Come in MANY Colors”!!

PUERTO RICANS 

“Our skins are different.

We have many colors.

We are all Puerto Rican (Borinqueños).

(translated)

Puerto Ricans (Spanish: Puertorriqueños; Taíno: boricua) are the inhabitants or citizens of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a multi-ethnic nation, home to people of different ethnic and national backgrounds. As a result, some Puerto Ricans do not treat their nationality as an ethnicity but as a citizenship with various ethnicities and national origins comprising the “Puerto Rican people“.

Despite its multi-ethnic composition, the culture held in common by most Puerto Ricans is referred to as mainstream Puerto Rican culture, a Western culture largely derived from the traditions of Western European migrants, beginning with the early Spanish settlers, along with other Europeans arriving later such as the Corsicans, Irish, Germans and French, along with a strong West African culture which has been influential.

Puerto Ricans commonly refer to themselves as boricuas. “The majority of Puerto Ricans regard themselves as being of mixed Spanish-European descent. Recent DNA sample studies have concluded that the three largest components of the Puerto Rican genetic profile are in fact indigenous Taíno, European, and African”.

CAR WARNING LIGHTS

Have no clue? Hate to read through the car manual?

They are really bothersome when they come on, aren’t they? This may is a quick lesson on the meaning of all those icons.

Or …. maybe not!

To start the day …. “A New Kind of Prom Date”!!


PromE

~~May 8, 2015~~ 

This gives me hope.

There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel. There’s hope in the young generation.

Maybe there won’t be any issue with them and being gay will be as accepted as being left-handed.

Dare I hope? I wish I was there to witness it.

Grab a tissue and watch this tearjerker video of Ellen hosting the two male high school students – one gay, one straight – who are going to their prom together because they’re best friends.

Anthony Martinez didn’t have a date for the prom. What his straight friend Jacob Lescenski did about that surprised everyone.

Ellen knew she had to hear their incredible story.

BrownBordJacBrownBord

“You’re hella gay, I’m hella str8, but you’re like my brother so be my d8!,” Jacob wrote on a sign happily held by friends.

Those friends and many more rented a bus to join Anthony and Jacob on Wednesday on “The Ellen Show,” where Ellen DeGeneres interviewed the best friends and commended them for being great role models.

She also handed each of them a $10,000 check for their education, to help reinforce and show the world that gay or straight, nothing beats friendship.

Grab a tissue and watch this awesome video!

Ellen DeGeneres had a generous surprise in store this week for the gay-straight “couple” whose colorful proposal went viral last week in the blogosphere.

DeGeneres rewarded Jacob Lescenski and Anthony Martinez, who are juniors at the Desert Oasis High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a check for $10,000 each for the headline-making gesture.

“I just wanted to say I know that there are some schools out there that don’t support this and wouldn’t allow this to happen and it’s really a shame because prom is very important to a lot of people,”

she gushed in the interview, video of which can be found.

Lescenski, who is straight, revealed that he was initially apprehensive after he learned that the openly gay Martinez had a crush on him.

Still, the two struck up a seemingly unlikely friendship.

“At first I was kinda scared,” he said in the interview. “I didn’t support gay rights then, but I also wasn’t against them … [but] Anthony, actually, was the reason that I began to support gay rights. He’s such a convincing person, he can convince anyone of anything. He’s such a great speaker.”

IOTD …. “Image of the Day”, #138!!


Mand

~~January 28, 2015~~ 

Mandala (‘circle’) is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the Universe. The basic form of most mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a center point. Each gate is in the general shape of a T. Mandalas often exhibit radial balance.

The term is of Sanskrit origin.

In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.

Something to think about …. #StopLabeling!!


~~December 9, 2014~~ 

Labels are plugins that automate stereotypical thinking.  We hear or see a familiar label and we have instantaneous recall of a fully developed opinion, completely colored with our own emotional paintbrush.

Labeling theory is the theory of how the self-identity and behavior of individuals may be determined or influenced by the terms used to describe or classify them.
