Hairpin

brace yourself for tiny moments

Recap of mini proportions: a Saturday afternoon impromptu drawing session with daughter (see below), a trip to a new library (ahoy graphic novel section for adults!), and the publishing of a new illustration at The Hairpin called "The Yoga-Juice Continuum." 

 

Sometimes posts are not always timely when you're unplugged most of the day.  My little girl spread out blankets in the woods and asked me to draw blind contours with her. How could I say no.....

Books on my desk that I will read with fever: 

Go find something to watch, some pavement/trail to pound or carve....and make it a good day. Thanks for stopping by once again.

the kissing kind

Today just happens to be about kissing. The smooch! The tongue wrestlers. The sloppy makers. The dry makers. The groovers. I have two selections for you in the ether of my atmosphere.

1. Please visit The Hairpin for an illustrative social commentary I created that explains the art of smear and wear. I called it "The Smear-Passion Index." Thanks to the editors at The Hairpin, once again.

I had two minutes to complete a blind contour drawing (my self-imposed daily assignment) . I set the clock, plus I had to be somewhere. What came out was disappointing, then I got antsy and scribble-y. I can't help that the nearby Pentel marker set egged me on. This it just what happened. The YouTube kiss video inspired some kind of worm-hole neck scarf between these two strangers with an affinity for each other. I wonder if they exchanged numbers after the shoot wrapped?

2. Here is the YouTube short film "FIRST KISS" that inspired this awry blind contour turned sci-fi ill. See for yourself....

 

a little scatter on the hairpin

The Hairpin Magazine published a little scatter graph of mine (based on highly scientific(?) raw social science data). I will mention here, as a disclaimer, back in the day, I got a terrible grade in college statistics for clinical psychology majors. (Note: I remember breaking down into tears in the professor's office one day. I don't remember why, but I remember him looking visibly uncomfortable. He did not exude warm fuzzies.)
