made kiddie kicks
For a baby shower…
made a series
I illustrated this series based on the true accounts of friends in this fair city of New York. Contrary to the belief of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, squirrels are not just “rats in cuter outfits.” Based on the behaviors that have been reported to me, it seems these bushy-tailed beauties are really just searching for a little warmth, comfort, and chocolate.
made, not finished… with good reason (sort of).
Laaaast summer when I went back home to California I spent an afternoon in the Capistrano Mission sketching some of its adobe architecture. Meticulous as I am, I couldn’t finish before I started getting a sunburn so had to take a picture for a later sitting in front of the computer screen instead of in the sunshine. Not long after uploading the image to my laptop, the damn thing jumped off of my desk and took my harddrive with it. Unfortunately, I lost everything I didn’t back up… which included most things, especially my model to finish this sketch.
Last week when I went back to California, I went back to the Mission and rectified the situation so (maybe) I can do just that.
I’ve been pretty unmotivated in the everything-department lately, but now that I’m fresh from the Western air I plan on getting back-on-track with my doodles!
… and maybe some other stuff, too.
made for the season and everyone’s favorite neighbor
When I was singing Mr. Rogers’ theme song to myself earlier today (heck yes I was), I didn’t realize I was not only singing for the lovely first day of Spring we are having here in the ‘hood, but also the birthday of the man himself! In fact, today would have been his 85th!
So Happy Birthday to Mr. Rogers and Happy Spring to everyone else.
I hope you make a snappy new day!
