Taking it back to Thanksgiving-time a few months ago when I was flown out to attend a beautiful wedding in Kau’ai. Indulged in an expensive magazine on the way out of Seattle at the Seatac Hudson Bay as well as some chowder from Anthony’s and coffee. Model from the November 2016 issue of Nylon Magazine.
Halibut fish tacos from Anthony’s run pretty expensive. Loved these giant monstera leaves everywhere in shaded areas of the island.
Sketching in ballpoint from the beach after cutting my foot on a log the evening before on a hike. Wore a sock on my foot the whole afternoon and fried in the sun watching people get rolled in some big kahuna.
Whenever I organize the files in my computer I see this scan from last year and wish I had been able to organize the rest of the images and words on the page so I could have finished this comic of a few pages when I was still feeling exactly this way. All I have now is a handful of thumbnails and a scattered storyboard across notebooks.
I had some time off over the holidays and was able to get my hands back into some projects that had been building up. My pre-18, untattooed days yielded some experimentation in flash designed for myself and even some friends :

Some digitized versions of these flash paintings printed on watercolor to be hand painted. More of that soon.
Going to be posting some old work so I might be able to catch up with myself! It’ll be good to have everything in one place. This was a franticly rendered watercolor painting of one of my favorite trees on campus on a really nice day spring 2016. Remember my feet being so sweaty in my sneakers and going on a long walk to a spot along the water anyways.
