I moved

No more posts here unfortunately :(

Please head on over to for fun and merriment!

I've decided to start fresh, and switch my allegiance over to the tumblr. Thanks for the good times, blogspot.

Gettin in the groove

I've been working on a short comic called Coyote's Strawberry. It's an old native american (crow) tale. Here's a little peek.

That's not really a berry.

More to come.

Some comics

So you know that scene in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix where Voldemort possesses Harry and tell him he's weak, and then Harry hits him back with the lamest retort ever?? Watch this to see what I'm talking about. Seriously, I can't stop laughing every time I think about that.

And uhhhh yeah. Some other comics about my misinterpreted fantasies and my favorite foods and how me and Stephen babysat a cat. It pretty much sums up my life.

(Sorry Stephen)

Doodly break

A doggie. His name is Buttermilk.

And the beginnings of an idea? It may or may not go somewhere.

Nooow back to work.

Pinhole camera

Back in summer, I made a pinhole camera using a matchstick box. I attached one full roll of film on one end, which connected to an empty canister on the other end.

It took a lot of trial and error and an entire roll being wasted, but I managed to get a good amount of prints. It was fun!

I finally got around to developing the pictures last month. It's interesting to see what pictures you get months after you take them. It's like stepping back into a dream, but you're not really sure where you are and when you are. I have barely any recollection of where these photos are from, but I am pretty sure one of them was when I had lunch at CrackerBarrel.

Anyway, interesting experiment.

Granny time

Hey yall.

It's been a lovely winter so far. Spent the holidays with friends and family in Los Angeles, visited an alpaca farm, climbed a mountain, and had general merriment.

I barely missed Snowmageddon, but came back to New York in time to see more snow. It's terribly cold, so I've picked up a few hobbies to cope. Crocheting like a super grandma and making nonsense out of scraps of fabric. White and brown hat below made from alpaca yarn from the Windy Hill Alpaca Ranch.

Happy viking monday

My posts are always perpetually two months behind what I'm actually doing at the moment.

In late July, I became obsessed with the idea of cross-stitching after seeing Barb finish up a teddy bear pattern she started back when she was 15. Inspired, I headed on over to my local Michael's Arts and Crafts to buy my very own pattern to begin. So excited I was, like a little girl buying a new toy! After nearly 4 months of train rides, I have completed "Two Wolves in Winter Landscape (Amidst Alien Invasion)."

Also. Some vikings.

Been playing with this idea about lovelorn vikings a while ago. As of now it has been filed away in my ever-expanding incomplete folder, but perhaps I will return to it if the mood strikes me. My brain = cluttered and cloudy.

I sick

I gots a sore throat. So I will post on blog to feel better. What have I been up to in the last month?

This is what's been going on at my work desk lately. Been making animal track/tree cards from paint chips and Timberland printed shoe wrappings. And tiny envelopes. Basically I'm just making useless things from the trash scattered all over the apartment. I started the envelopes earlier in the year and they were so fun to make. So now I'll make more!

And the meager fruits of my tomato harvest!

In case you haven't seen, I helped Stephen out on a cartoon for NPR. It's about a cute little monster called Toxie! And she fucks shit up. You can see it here.

Also collaborated with kneeon! and did animation for a Gear Up commercial. They want you to apply to college! Take a look:

Awesome fun and awesome teamwork with everybody. Wheeeeeee!

Tomato explosion!!

I love tomatoes.

They are my favorite fruit, vegetable, whatever you want to call it. So simple in its design and form, yet capable of endless palatable possibilities. I never realized it before, but I probably eat tomatoes at least 4 times a week. You are what you eat? Then I'm a fat, red tomato.

This year is the first time I've attempted to grow anything substantial on my own. During my childhood, my grandmother, an expert gardener, had a wonderful patch of vegetables in our backyard. She grew everything from winter squash to delicious chinese herbs. And of course she grew my fave! Tomatoes. They were big and fat and juicy and I ate them for summers.

So now as I sort of follow my grandmother's footsteps, my fire escape has transformed into a makeshift garden of tomato, rosemary, and pepper plants. They sit on the fourth story, surviving the worst conditions New York has to offer--everything from massive heat waves to the terrible 2nd Ave subway construction. Stumbling through the gardening process has been fun and insightful, but not without making some mistakes. Usually dumb ones. For example, do not sprinkle ALL 30 seeds from your packet into your one pot. One seed does indeed equal one plant, and that one plant WILL become over 5 feet tall and block out your entire bedroom window. Many seedlings were sacrificed in this lesson.

I have 3 cherry tomato plants now. Two are flourishing outside and fruiting like mad. They are thick-stemmed and fuzzy, and smell like a tomato porno. The third is stuck inside my apartment and slowly dying from lack of sunny rays. It's been kept inside for months since it's too big to put outside, and it hasn't been receiving the proper sunlight. Sigh...I had high hopes for this big guy, but sometimes you try to reach for the stars and you just come crashing down. Lesson learned. Next summer: new plants, new plans.

Savor the moment (and watermelons)

I went to the beach on Saturday. As I was sitting in the sand cross-stitching some wolves (this will surely be another post), I saw the sun setting down in the West and I thought, "Shit. That's beautiful." Savor the moment, everybody. The world is filled with them.

Some tree studies from on the road (Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi) and watermelons. Two of my favorite things about summer. Note the particularly whimsical names of some places in the south.

Lazy summer

As usual, I let the summer days get to me and my mind has been wandering to far off places instead of blogging. Which is probably a good thing!

Last few months have been wild--just finished up working on a claymation spot at work, been doing some drawings and things here and there, and just came back from a road trip to New Orleans.

Some older drawings from back in June. Here's to summer:

Mister Blake Larue.

Update on the little new york apartment gardening project: I was getting a little scared that my tomatoes wouldn't flower, but all that worry was for nothing for they are thriving, flowering, and fruiting like the awesome plants they are! Also, they are humongous and taking over my bedroom.

I'm avoiding posting more drawings and stuff...but that's for another post. Meanwhile, I leave you with skies of the south, the most breathtaking skies I reckon I ever seen in this here blessed country.
