Wednesday Goals: A fry in the sky

29 Jul

Today I had just one goal.

To eat fries.

And today at dinner… I lived that dream!

fries, fries, fries, fries!

And that was it… successful day.

FUN

28 Jul

I have been having a lot of time at very silent work to make some illustrations.

And lately every week I’m trying to work on things I never have had the patience to actually do.

Today’s test was to make something I could put in illustrator to work on my graphic skills… but what it really feels like is my yearning to do something other than sit at a desk from 9am to 6pm without getting yelled at.

I desperately want to do something fun… so next week I think I’m going to take a day to play hooky. And I bet I won’t get yelled at not even once!

I’m gonna go full Ferris Bueller, the parade, the vest… the everything.

have a nice Wednesday internet,

Monsters University

6 Jul

Sometimes I make things for kids parties.

It’s kind of my favorite thing to do.

This was one of my favorites:

I tried to make it like a golden book illustration.

Fun Fact: I have a small print of this at my work desk and sometimes I stare deeply in to Mike’s soulful eye.

He helps me create all my projects.

Happy Birthday America

4 Jul

Wait…

I had enough time to draw 2 things this week

#ALLMYDREAMSARECOMINGTRUE

This one was inspired by the fact that anytime we hang a flag Elliott thinks it’s his duty to attack it.

He has been staring at the American Flag all afternoon.

And he really looks confident this year.

America!

3 Jul

I would personally like to say the following 2 things

1. I love patriotic Holidays.

2. I like days when I’m not so preoccupied with work, and tired from all the chaos that is contained in one office building that I get to draw.

This doesn’t happen very often nowadays.

So let’s get into this drawing. I won’t say anything sarcastic about the US, because it’s pretty cool and if it wasn’t for like 15,000 different cultures coming here to exist…. I know I certainly wouldn’t.

So Happy Birthday America, and for the next 48 hours everything will be fireworks, red white & blue, powdered wigs, and Alexander Hamilton look-a-like contests.

Also not having to go to work and getting to draw is so amazing that it hurts!

A Lunch Message from Sean

5 Jun

One of my new coworkers is very into food and he’s been so into Oinkster’s burger week this week.

In honor of him and Oinkster… I bring to you

“Sean’s Fancy Burger”

It looked exactly like this and tasted like heaven.

The Bird and the Fish

27 May

Somewhere being obsessed with the ocean and watching a lot of movies… I made this little doodle:

a bird may love a fish, but where would they live?

I can actually say I have felt like a bird that fell in love with a fish at some point in my life. And well, we never figured it out.. so I fly, and he swims and we don’t ever ever cross paths.

I don’t know if it ever could have worked. And I guess since the sky is full of opportunities there is no real reason to think about it.

But I’d like to imagine the fish and the bird in the doodle can totally figure it out. Don’t you?

And where does this phrase come from? Does it show up in more than “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Ever After”?
