I love cities. And I love music. And I especially love them together. I love to put on my headphones and stroll around downtown... makes me feel like I'm in a montage from a movie (riding the bus with headphones has the same effect). Type of movie varies with my mood... quirky indie film, chick flick, action adventure, thoughtful drama...

Today has been mostly Pop Latino. Not sure where that fits, but it was fun.

Unlikely Friends

For Heather.

And no, he's not going to eat the bird.

Israel Sketches

I've had big plans of posting these about a month ago (I can't believe it's been a month!), but I kept putting it up because there were a few sketches I wanted to finish... Which of course hasn't happened. Lesson learned: sketch pages are meant to be done the day of. Still, I did manage to sketch more than I have on any other trip.

So... Some pages.

Israel was great. Did I mention that?

And... if ever there's a mysterious benefactor out there reading this, looking for an artist to send around the world for some reason... I'm pretty sure I could make myself available. It's possible that might be my dream job.

"Have a suitcase heart. Be ready to travel." -Gabrielle Zevin

At risk of sounding melodramatic... I read that line the other day and it kind of got stuck in my head, since I've been living out of suitcases for the last few weeks. And it kind of reminds me of that "rootless" sort of feeling that accompanies transition periods.. I've been apartment hunting. Not my favorite thing in the world, to put it mildly.

On another note, I've always wished I had one of those retro suitcases with stickers all over it. And of course to have gone to all those places on the stickers.

Autumn Hair

Yesterday the warm-up exercise at work was to create something with hair a la Kevin Keele.. Which was fantastic, since hair is one of my very favorite things to draw. I was enjoying the excercise so much it was hard to move on to my actual assignment. But then I went home and kept working on it.

It was satisfying.

Also, fall is here! And with it my first September in which I do not return to school (well, minus the one where I was in Uruguay) and that is also very satisfying.
