I went with my little brother and sister to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince last night at midnight.

I will always love Harry Potter.

And so begins my summer quest... The Sketchbook. I'm jumping back in after an 18 month sabbatical. It was a surprisingly hard leap, considering how much i've been looking forward to it. After some consulting with friends, i have some ideas, and I'm excited. I got a set of watercolor pens and a new book and I'm ready to go! Here's a first attempt:

Ok. So, it's more like "Paint-booking" but. Fa. I really love paint.

Anyways. My dad is the king of Ebay and he found me a cool new phone for a dollar. More information at my fingertips than I could possibly know what to do with. It has a calendar and to-do list and seems to say: You wil set goals! You will achieve them! You will not waste time! etc. Very motivational.

I'm trying not to let it down.

Some more gouache:

This is my little sister Charlotte. She was eleven when I left, but now she's almost thirteen...

...and taller than me. Happy surprises.

The plus is we can now share shoes.

A trial in gouache...

This is Mariana. She's seven, and my favorite little girl in Uruguay. Her parents started calling her "Mini-Blocker." My little hermanita.
