Stars and 38 Throwback

Star #1

I took the day off today. It was nice. I had more hours to furiously scroll down blogs and more blogs about John Green and the vocal ranges of lady singers. (Julie Andrews you are still my fav). The person that uploaded this video claims Julie can only sing two octaves, but Julie says she can sing four. The discussion on youtube is fierce. I'm going with four.

Star #2 (SPOILER ALERT if you have yet to read/watch The Fault in Our Stars)
As I am wont to do, I reread another of my books. This time it was The Fault in Our Stars by: John Green. Being that I am still new to his ridiculous wit and pretentious prose I found the whole thing just as enjoyable as the first time. I watched some videos of him and read almost every answer to all the fan questions that have been sent to him. It took a few hours. The main question everyone wants to know is   "When did Hazel die?" He would not and will not answer. Which is okay. I spent some time reading and watching some of the things the girl who inspired the book wrote/filmed. Which introduced me to the terribly hard reality of a sweet, adorably nerdy girl living only until the age of sixteen.

38 Studios

I can't show you anything that I'm doing. I can't even show you things that are already out in the parks, so I decided to do a fun throwback and post illustrations I did for 38 Studios. Enjoy!

Mama Teresa

A normal evening. I'm trying not to think about the tax forms buried underneath hours of procrastination, including this hour, when I am still deciding whether to bust out the calculator or cuddle the cat. Sofi, the best sister this side of the 'verse, is chatting it up with mom (who talks as if she was on the other side of the known galaxy instead of on the phone.) Toulouse; the cat, the fuzzball, the eater of precious garments, is here too.

The day has been of the normal kind too. Got up. Took the neighbors to Epcot. Wondered momentarily if I should find some place in the park to sit and sift through some of my favorite books, but decided instead that the scalding sun and lack of outlets was impractical so I headed home, of course not before winding aimlessly around the parking lot until I found my car. Then I drew (see picture below), had sushi, went to the Bar(nes & Noble) for the millionth time and now I am here with you, the reader, trying to suck you back into reading my blog.

As I said today I actually drew something for myself. And it had nothing to do with work, favors or I've-lost-my-personal-voice guilt.

So here she is, Mama Teresa!  I haven't quite gotten to where I want with her, but I've been seriously considering starting my second book, based on her life. More on that later... maybe.
