Diabetically Cute

Cakes never fails to bring happiness to my day, he's my little boy and I'm lucky to have him!

My allergies have been so bad the last few days that I've had zero energy to do anything other than climb into bed and watch Bob's Burgers on Netflix...

I have a few kids who latch onto me. I appreciate how much they appreciate me, but sometimes it gets to be a little to

Last Rites Zombie Show

Went to Last Rite's last night for their opening of Travis Louie's Zombie group show. Had an amazing time, especially it being the first time I've ever been there. Met a bunch of wonderful new people, saw old friends, and saw some great art!

Future Edit: I did a stupid with this one, her name is Paula, not Pauline. Curse my memory!

New Machine!

So the package I got the other day was for my new laptop. My old one was nearing 6 years old and has already gone through one HD pooping out on me. I have transferred all my files over, installed the programs I need... I am a very happy girl!

Yay for New Business Cards!

Ended up getting my delivery of new business cards a few days early, so it was extra-awesome when I saw that package waiting for me!

I am also expecting my business cards to come in the mail next week. Woooooo I am in for a treat!

So amidst the photos of Audrey I needed to take as reference for a painting I'll be starting on, we also got pictures of Bret modeling in her jacket and sunglasses, candid shots of myself mulling about, the horizon, and a Model-T that drove past.

Got a new buddy in the bathroom. As tradition holds, his name is Peanut.

Color Families

One of my star pupils spent the tail end of a rainy afternoon this week regaling the story of color families and relationships. The whole thing lasted an hour, kids asking her to repeat everything, to write it down, add in their own side stories... We had to stop because the day ended, though I'm sure it could and would have gone on forever.

Skull Staredown

I have a vinyl skull I need to paint for a show in July, and it's been sitting around for a month now, seemingly mocking me. I have no idea how to go about creating a cohesive, original painting on this thing...

Bird Love

Cakes rubs his butt on me... After nearly 8 years I have yet to come up with a definitive feeling towards this. At least I know he loves me?

The Best Medicine

I had a horrible stomach ick the past few days, and the best thing was when John came over at midnight to bring me gummy frogs! The best.

Makin' Bacon

Forest to Shore Gallery had its 2nd anniversary show Saturday night in which I had 2 pieces included in the mix. It was an amazing show! To add to that, I was also paid for the last show I had with Mark Blanchard, Tom Ryan, and Christian Perez back in January. Woo, money!

Destroyer of Worlds

The kids love to clean the chalk wall in my classroom. This one in particular made it a fun game of destroying the world as he cleaned the Earth Day mural some kids drew yesterday. Some men just want to wash the world clean.

No Escape

John and I made a nice fire in the backyard, and no matter what side we would sit on, both of us would be clouded by smoke. My hair and jacket still reek of it...

How Big Is My Dinosaur?

Grocery store book bins are treasure troves. The illustration on the cover of this book was actually pretty adorable! Fat dinosaurs...

Cake vs. Cake

He pushed the cake off of the counter three times in a row. I would have prevented him from doing it again but he looked like he was having such a good time. The strength in that little bird surprises me sometimes...

I work as an art teacher, and there is no end to the great things my kids have said to me and just in general. It's a wealth of hilarity.

Singin' Dave

John and I are regulars at our local 24-hour diner, and are lucky enough to be able to sit and drink coffee in the wee hours of the morning and be regaled by David's beautiful operatic voice!

My apologies for the B^U nature of today's comic. It's a very busy Wednesday with work and an art opening directly after... Good kind of busy :)

Go Home, You're Skunk...

I come home at around midnight to find a skunk bumbling around the back door. I talked to it, jingled my keys, and it just continued to root around until it decided to move along after a few long minutes... This is not the first time this has happened...

Drug Puppy!

My brother AJ came to visit after spending the weekend at PAX East. John and I went to pick him up at the train station, and while we waited there was the cutest drug dog ever and I couldn't stop fawning over the thing. I wanted to pet that dog, but in retrospect that's the last dog you'd want attention from...
