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.
You know you’re getting old when your car insurance goes down (yes!), but your health insurance goes up (nooooo! Age brackets!).
Sometimes you need a battle ram.
Do you love/hate first person games as much as me? Love playing, hate nauseous feeling.
It really sucks being a girl. I mean, I get cramps so major that I just feel really sore. Now pair that with a really hard without for the first time in forever. Deadlifting? Squats? Ugh!
Sometimes dating a man with a beard tells you many things about him… Mostly what he ate from the tales of food past.
And some of you may or may not know this, but I am a true San Francisco native. I even know the hand signs! Though it’s really hard to do.
Lastly, I went to a friend’s 40th birthday party! I haven’t seen her since we graduated from the animation program! Good to see her.
Whenever I’m too full, (I’m the worst with portion control) I imagine a party in my stomach.
I’ll use anything at hand to shade me from the sharp sting of the sun in my eyes.
Don’t you hate it when you get the smallest speck of dust between your eye and contact? How is it possible to feel like the pain of thousand daggers and the fiery burn of a dragon’s breath in your eyes? Only those that wear contacts will know this pain.
I had some passport pictures taken and it’s always a struggle between what you think you look like and the reality.
Then I had a dream where I didn’t feel comfortable with how my teeth were and didn’t smile.
When sitting in a coffee shop and flies are hanging out, I just think of them barfing all over everything they land on and how it’s completely disgusting.
Sometimes I forget how gross it must be for a vegan to date an omnivore… Especially when she adds extra dried shrimp and fish sauce to her salad.
The Musee Mecanique is worth checking out, especially the French execution. #spoileralert
Topics like mochi must be discussed over dinner, but when asked how do I get the consistency right, I just tell them they don’t have the magic.
When I was a kid, my dad would tell me weird stories about work… Like this time a guy in Chinatown randomly asked if he would like to buy a bottle of mice fetus wine. I asked him what it was for and he had no idea.
I just had some lobster sashimi topped with tobiko and I always think of the generations I’m murdering in my mouth and Joe delicious they are with their gentle, salty popping.
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!
