I’m experimenting with color. I think I should stick with black and white and make a coloring book instead.
A collection of skulls seems so necessary when I’m drawing. It’s so fun to draw. Can you guess the skull?
Whenever I go to the Academy of Sciences, I love looking at the armored catfish. They’re so fascinating.
I heard some froggy noises, so I followed just to find what I thought was a frog! It turned out it was a California newt.
There was an insect bbq, and I had one of these hornworms in a spring roll. I’ll say that I much prefer crickets over the caterpillars, though.
I love these long tailed grackles! They’re so elegant in my eyes.
Cheetos are good for my workouts, right? They have whey in them!
We watched some wrestling and I super love their underwear and long boots!
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is an amazing show. Drop everything to go watch it now on Netflix.
I also love MadMen for their women’s outfits. Go costume designers!
I don’t know. I was thinking of weird vending machine items and I thought seafood would be bizarre! I wonder if it exists anywhere.
Believe in yourself.
On my road trip, I saw a dead jackrabbit and I thought, what would it be like if we left our deceased like we leave our roadkill. That’s what inspired me.
I get these csa boxes delivered to my house. It’s like a farm service where they deliver you super fresh, organic produce to your door for only thirty five dollars. Anyway, I get this head of cauliflower and I see this brown thing between the branches. I thought oh! This might be a cool beetle or something! Then I look closer and realize it’s squirming and trying to crawl away. As I was deforesting his home, I start freaking out about it. He’s eating and shitting all over my cauliflower. If you wanna ever know what caterpillar dookie ever looked like, here it is.
You’re welcome. So here’s Noctua Pronuba, a crop pest.
Then I took some passport photos… And you know… They never really look like how you think they do…
Every time I go out and do anything, I seem to always spot animals and insects. Jay says I have predatorial eyes. I saw this deer hop over a wire fence like it was nothing.
I also saw a kid in a cute bear hoodie, so I incorporated that into the drawing. Then I had this dream of my old pet rat, Porkbun, and that some random factory worker found his parents by ways of DNA testing. He told me that I should take care of them, even though the mother was mummified and the father was really fat. I then panicked, wondering when I fed Porkbun last and hoped he wasn’t dead, either. (He’s been dead for over ten years.)
Every day I’m documenting a drawing diary of interesting events of the day. I decided this was the easiest way for me to draw every day without thinking too hard about what I was going to draw. Hopefully I’ll be able to post every day on here, but if you don’t see it, it’s best to catch me on instagram.
January six. I saw a guy in fidi wearing a suit at Starbucks. He looked pretty nervous and he was shifting papers everywhere. He left a manila envelope full of rolled up papers on the counter and left. Another man walked in and sat down by the papers and hung out with them, guarding them. I wonder what that was about.
January 5. I was working on set design and went into the office pretty hungry. Decided to be bad and had McDonald’s breakfast. Sitting at the drive-thru, I saw movement from the corner of my eyes. There were mice running back and forth! I definitely had mixed feelings about it.
January 4. All the rabbits. I didn’t realize how many bunny things I had!
January 3. Brawl at the mall. Two old guys fought each other but only one landed a punch and gave the other one a black eye.
January 2. Window shopping and glasses shopping. Then watched the interview.
January 1. Happy New Year, everybody!
