I had a phone interview yesterday.  For food stamps.  Badumcha.

I’ve been working on a picture of Grumpy Cat in this style for like 2.5 hours now, oh god why did I think this would be a good idea…

She makes me giggle every time I zoom out though.  Only 4 hours to go Grumpy Cat!

In this day and age it’s only acceptable for the baby to be making a face that truly says “I’m currently taking a dump.”
This contains very essential information like “When Should Your Child: Have a Gun.  Play Football.  Drive a Car.”  Really like some of the illustrations in this one.

Think I may have gone overboard on making Pantone Color swatch magnets.Idea from: http://howaboutorange.blogspot.com/2011/03/diy-pantone-chip-magnets.html
FYI Lowes has free swatches of like 50 Pantone colors they now sell in tiny paint buckets.  Pretty rad, though overpriced.

When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around the bush, she didn’t lie and say she was taken—she just said no.

One day, in third period, after being rejected several times, he said; “I have a gun in my locker. If you don’t say yes, I am going to shoot you in seventh.”

This isn’t as uncommon as you think.  At my current [retail] job there was this fellow who worked there for a week or two a while back.  Seemed okay, nothing specifically misogynistic on the surface.  Then he didn’t show up to work the one day.  That night one of my managers saw him on the local news channel, being arrested for making terroristic threats.  These included having access to guns and Molotov cocktails. He planned to blow up a gas station, then he was going to have a stand off in a local mall’s daycare.  Motivation?  Depressed and angry. He was upset that a woman, with whom he had a relationship, had recently filed a protection from abuse order against him.  He’s out of jail now, don’t think they had enough to prosecute him or something.

What a gorgeous illustration.
She reminds me of Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine, don’t you think?

Nothing like the direct approach.  I want one of those signs.  1920’s prohibition protesters.

It looks like somebody didn’t complete the “draw 100 hands” assignment in art school.

Feeling nostalgic today.  My grandmother was very good at roller skating when she was young.  Proud to say she earned the nickname “The Bitch on Wheels.”  If there had been roller derby in her day I know she would have won a few trophies.She actually laced up for “one last time” when she was 80, luckily she didn’t break anything, just bruised her hip a bit.  Lived another 5 years.
You are missed, Grandma.
