There's nothing else I can say (that doesn't involve Gaga)

This article perfectly sums up the phenomenon of Lady Gaga. For me, it started off with admitting that "Just Dance" was catchy, then genuinely liking "Poker Face" ... finally, the fandom craziness started with the "Bad Romance" video. From there, all hell broke loose.

Remember that Bad Romance homage SWAK I did yesterday? It actually got featured on the amazing Fuck Yeah Lady Gaga site after I submitted it in a "what the hell, why not" moment yesterday! It's amazing because that site has Gaga paraphernalia up to the knees, and isn't helping appease my current addicted state in the slightest. (coughcough, woops)

What's Lovely for January 12, 2010
: Spotting someone whose style you love from head to toe. I think this is very odd, but while I'm oot and aboot and observing others, I'd occasionally see someone who catches my attention. Not just a cute pair of boots or particularly shiny hair, but it would be the whole look I love. And it inspires me, in a tiny, persistent way.

My camera: the poor man's scanner.

I saw this young Asian woman while I was walking out from my morning class, and her presence struck me as demure yet mature (accidental rhyming?). She wasn't wearing anything that was especially noticeable, but her slender (but not gaunt) frame in simple, yet chic, clothing struck me as very confident in a quiet manner. I was inspired to pick up my long-since-used sketchbook and quickly scribble out this drawing. She probably doesn't look exactly like this in real life, but I drew her like I remembered in my mind's eye. (though I'm still annoyed at her right arm...dang)

Has anyone ever had a moment like this? Or am I just crazier than I already thought?

Speaking of crazy. I have to share my favorite Lady Gaga picture.

If I could draw I would have totally done sketches of people I saw with cool style, especially when I was living in San Francisco. Actually, I bet I'll see some pretty awesome stuff even here in Kansas once the snow melts.

Lucky bitch, going to that concert...

I also love that picture. It's always fun to throw it at the haters who try to say she's part-man.

I'll admit, her strangeness is what keeps me coming back for more. And her songs are catchy.

Just dance was huge and so catchy while I was in Greece. How can one resist Gaga?

I love your illustration! Simply beautiful. I have a tendancy to fall in love with random strangers.

I really have to thank everyone for not tar and feathering me for all this Gaga talk. It'll cease someday. Maybe. D:

Gaga is EVERYWHERE?! *starts to randomly dance*
