As a connoisseur of weird things. I must confess that one of those things is weird holidays.
You may say after Christmas and Arbor Day that all the cool holidays are through. But how can that really be when January 21st is Squirrel appreciation day?
Well let me tell you, everyday has a holiday.
Yesterday was learn about composting day. I was not all that into it.
Today I picked a Saint Day to celebrate. .. Joan of Arc.
I have always felt a connection to Miss of Arc. Maybe because I took refuge in a church adorned with tapestries of her life during the most crazy rainstorm I’ve ever been in… or maybe it’s because she was a big part of Bill and Ted passing history class…
Sometimes I can’t even figure my logic.
But she actually was pretty amazing, think of all the things she did with her very short life.
And today my doodle is all about her:
And that quote is fantastic. The best thing I ever said at 14 was “No, I don’t listen to the Backstreet boys.”
We can’t all be cool like Joan.
For some reason architecture departments are like 98% all dudes.
Even at new office there are 15 guys in the department and only one other lady. Now this means you will talk about old comedies, sports, and how the other art departments have dudes who put too much time into getting dressed.
But there are also other things that happen…
And I’m not talking about no line to wait to use the ladies room…
I even got a gel pen that freaking erases. IT ACTUALLY ERASES!!!
Yesterday was one of the best days in the whole history of things that happen.
It was Nancy’s Birthday!
Yes you may know Nancy from being a doodle in the bar on the right side of the screen, or being deliciously described on my about page. But she’s so much more! She’s my giggling companion, listens to all my silliness, and can make a great meal… but maybe not a cupcake :)
But I must apologize for my tardy drawing. But quite candidly I didn’t get the drawing up because well, I was too tired from work to get it colored… and well it needed to be colored!
So without further ado:
I almost sorry to tell you that I was inspired by Pocahontas… and if they monitor the internet at my work (which I know they do). They are going to be who is this girl who google searches elevators, what they are serving for lunch, and pocahontas? Who could be that fascinating? Well that person would be me.
And since I get to see my cat for very few hours during the week. I think about what he’s doing. But with my imagination it’s always more extreme than the truth… he’s asleep somewhere.
So today during my work break time I made this little friend:
Also, this is how long it took for my new coworkers to find out that I illustrate. I in turn got a request, and I made a coworker a trophy doodle for having a very clean desk… and now that the doodle is on her desk, I think I may have ruined her record.
Any ways I hope everyone had a good mother’s day weekend. Whether you are an actual mother, have had a mother, or mother a few little pets.
