Some cafe drawings of students around the CalArts campus
And these were done in Rad Sechrist's life drawing class; an exercise in taking the model's poses and turning them into little scenarios/stories/cartoons. Super fun! Drawings were done in sharpie then watercolor tone was added in photoshop.
One of my favorites! I wish I could have done a colored cover, but I ran out of time...actually, if possible someday I'd really like to do a series of Pilgrim's Progress illustrations. Weeeeeee'll seeeeee
I finally joined the tumblr bandwagon, so now I am cool.
For the month of November I'm challenging myself to draw something I'm thankful for every day! we'll see how long that lasts
Assignment for story class was to "Tell a Joke" - two characters max, b&w, no dialogue. This assignment just proved to show me exactly how unfunny I am because for the whole week I could not think of ANYTHING! So in the end I did a joke I thought of last year for my animation, but didn't end up using. (Though I guess this scene would technically take place afterwards, since he has both of his teeth there)
Are there any diabetic/hypoglycemics out there that experience the pain I feel?? I'm talking about the pain of about a lb of carrot sticks in my stomach right now.
Breakfast started out real classy. Berry skyr with a few blackberries and flax seed thrown in there.
I'm breaking in my new bike, so I rode down to whole foods and treated myself to some multigrain sushi (which was aawWWeeesoOOme)
Yes, well...I'm not used to riding on these California hills and I guess that bike ride was more strenuous than I thought, because my bloodsugar had dropped down to 48 by 3:00, and low blood sugars turn me into a ravenous food beast (like a werewolf, except replace the full moon with glucose deffecient blood.....I guess...?)
In about 5 seconds flat my stomach contained the following:
3 bags of pirate booty 3 spoonfuls of apricot preserves 3 celery sticks dipped in zucchini ikra entire 15 oz bag of carrot sticks
WELL....at least I can console myself that it was pretty much healthy food! (Pirate booty is questionable...)
Well, tomorrow I am headed back to school for my third year at CalArts. That freeeaaaaks me out. I don't feel like a Junior at all!
I can't say that I drew a whole lot this summer unfortunately...but what I can say is I LOVE KETTLEBELL! I tend to feel about working out/exercising the same way I also feel about showering: I feel like a million bucks once I'm done, but the whole process itself just feels like a big invasion of my time and I can't wait for it to be over. Not so with kettlebell!!! I look forward to my sumo squats and turkish get up sit ups every day! (Maybe if I do kettlebell in the shower I will enjoy showering more too?)
My godmother (you may remember her) gave me her old kettlebell and 25 min DVD and OOOH MAN it's so much fun to swing that thing around (unlike running, where I find myself praying for death to take me). So turns out it was developed in Russia where it is called girya which sounds a million times cooler than kettlebell.
only 25 mins and I feel the burn!!
Note the impressive pink seven pounder right there (apparently women are supposed to START OUT with 15 lbs...maybe that's only for Russian women. That must be it)
I imagine Millie does some kettlebell in her spare time
Oooooh man Grocery shopping is really the best just the best.
Within the past couple of years I have become what you might call a health nut...the thoughts that most occupy my mind are daydreams of going to farmers markets and organic food stores, getting to take my sweet, sweet time checking out nutritional facts, fantasizing about the endless combinations of ways to make oatmeal exciting...
And fortunately, I have a grocery-shop-love partner, Jane Kim! Today we walked down to Sprouts Farmers Market together.
I freak out every time I go to Sprouts.
I recently discovered skyr, which is icelandic strained non-fat yogurt. Jane and I decided to have a cup. She bought some coconut toasted granola, and I brought along a couple boxes of raisins, so we added those in.
