Happy week after Labor Day Weekend! Ha! I’m trying to funny. It never works when I try. Anyway, onwards! Last week, I found this photo of an old drawing in my files. It’s from my days of premed stress in the college dorms.
27 December 2009
I’m pretty sure this was a photo for my bluecanvas site. A lot of the work I did around that time had no thought of composition or narrative (not that I think those elements are necessary). Now, I think a lot of those crazy freestyle drawings/paintings were just places where I vomited every thing, like my sketchbooks now. Anyway. After I found this, I kept thinking about those flames.
One of my best friends in San Diego invited me over for the weekend. She always let’s me run away to her when I’m stressed. It’s always been a convenient placebo to satisfy my actually urge to run away (so adult, I know). Anyway, San Diego always means bomb mexican food, the beach and childhood loves. It also meant time away from my desk and the giant work I was addicted to for the past week.
I built this little fire before leaving for SD on Friday. I actually felt like painting with color, which is really rare for me. And! I totally fell in love with the movie Tangled! Ha, of course I loved the lanterns! I want to make actual ones without setting my apartment on fire.

Anyway, have you ever had a bacon waffle before? Oh yes, they exist! Go to Harry’s Cafe in La Jolla! Seriously. Oh and listen to some Youth Lagoon, they’re lovely.
Good day You!
