I recently started trying to get the hang of the Vine app. I hated it for a while, but now I think we’re becoming friends. The restrictions of trying to make something cohesive within a 6 second time frame, drove me crazy at first.
Then after getting a bit stir crazy on a recent road trip from one edge of California to the other, I started using Vine to record the slightly spastic antics of my friends, Lazy Pigeon and the Blind Chauffeur!
How they get anything together, is just beyond me. Episode 1
Over the weekend, Alex and I drove up to Portland to partake in the Stumptown Comic Fest. We made a zine together full of nonsense about llamas. We called it a llamazine. Its my new favorite car. Heres some photos of our booth!
It was my first time doing conventions. It was so fun being able to sell the things I’ve had so much fun making, hanging out with my best friend all weekend, and putting ourselves into a sugar coma along the way.
I recently got to work with the people over at Whole Foods online magazine, Dark Rye! I was asked to submit a tutorial that is environmentally friendly and cute. I had lots of fun making baskets out of paper, and strawberries out of watercolor.
Check out the whole tutorial that I shot and illustrated, over at Dark Rye!
One of the meanest things I enjoy in my everyday life is tickling. It was a desire that laid stagnant for years until my boyfriend told me that he is so ticklish, that he can’t touch his own feet without feeling tickled. From that moment, I find myself…accidentally…brushing my toes up against the bottoms of his feet because I know its going to result in an unexpected chuckle in an otherwise silent room. If you have a friend who is ticklish, may I suggest this really awful, excruciating, and hilarious activity? Try drawing of writing something on the bottom of each others feet!
Tickling is the best! It causes your to laugh uncontrollably and no matter how much you hate it at the time, everything feels fresher after a good laugh. (unless it results in you pissing you pantaloons). Even the word itself is pretty funny. The best thing I’ve seen all week is probably this video on how even rats enjoy a good tickling:
My other favorite tickling moment, is probably this penguins laugh and nod.

Beauty is Embarrassing The super inspiring documentary about Wayne White, who constructed the puppets for Pee Wees Playhouse and makes those words over thrift store art painting. You know what I’m talking about…
