I changed the layout a bit, thought it might make it easier to view, especially the horizontal images. I also want to add a portfolio tab (inspired by a good friend at http://nostalgicallyyours.blogspot.com/) so my best pieces will be in there instead of all over. Just need to spend some time on it and it'll get there. Eventually I will have www.sophiaalmada.com but as it's under construction right now, this is just fine.
I felt bad for not updating in a long time, not that there are a ton of followers, so I thought I would just show you a couple more tattoo style ink drawings I did just now.
Sorry about the bad quality pictures, just a little something for now! Hope you guys enjoy, keep checking in and feel free to leave some love in comments!
Probably the last post in Scotland, unfortunately. I'll be in Arizona to work on some pieces so I'll post the progress of those when I'm working on them.

Going to be an extra on Garrow's Law and went for my fitting today. Can barely breathe in a corset and boy are there a lot of layers! Going in for work tomorrow, should be interesting!

This is a sculpture that's modestly put up by an apartment complex near some ship yards, not anywhere that's really seen by the public. Which is a shame because it's awesome, so I got out of the car to take some pictures the other day.
Pretty awesome right? I love how it's made, with layering metals. It gives great negative space and amazing movement. Just awesome!
What do you think??

Farmer's market was great today. We got some crawfish type things but they are a little different and I forgot what they call them here, they are a little bigger but not like lobsters by any means, and they have skinnier claws. We got to taste them and they were awesome and got to taste a bunch of other things too. Kind of funny because Farmer's Markets that I've been to in the states mostly have fruits and vegetables, this one had waaay more meat vendors, but it was still great. Got some awesome banana bread and carrot cake and sun dried tomato stuffed olives. We are going to feast tonight! Need to go start dinner now actually.
Leave a comment if you're feeling generous!

Summer is good. Weather is great besides the occasional rainy day, going to a farmer's market tomorrow. Also been doing a lot of drawings and I have some ideas for bigger projects, one involving another pin up.
Here are just a few sculptures I did last semester.
Expressive self portrait with clay.
Personal Mythology with clay. Tree from the seventh layer of hell in Dante's Inferno.
More to come later, maybe even some old work in my portfolio..
Out to be in the sunshine, Cheers!

Summer has been good living here in Glasgow. Was asked to do some work to be sold at a vintage sale so I got to do whatever I wanted and decided to experiment.
First tried some oil pastel work since I haven't done that in over a year..
Then worked with ink to do some tattoo inspired illustrations in spirit of the vintage sale..
I also have some paintings and sculptures I made at school that I will be posting soon.
Hope everyone is having a splendid summer!
