Tardy Dorm Post! Plus Sketches!

So howdy everyone! I know this is very very belated but let me show you my dorm! I never dormed before and since this is my last year at college I wanted the full college experience of living on my own. I moved in like the beginning of this month and have settled in quite nicely.

Pretty nice, for a dorm yea. I had to bring all my kooky things so I can be inspired when working on my thesis (which I will post about soon).

And now onto some sketches cuz I know I'm sick of posting photos!

Drawings at the park of people...and a squirrel!

Doodles at the diner of cats, Little Bear, a wolf, a white trash muppet and some dumb video character.

Griffins are awesome!

Mostly inspired by the Maurice Sendak book "The Griffin and the Minor Canon" and the Gryphon from Alice in Wonderland.

Hush hush comes the Boogey Man!

And last but not least, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective! Drawn while watching both movies. Jim Carrey is a living cartoon, I swear.

Aaaaaaaaaaall righty then!

Thanks for all the new recent followings and comments! See ya next time!

My Final Summer Vacation...

Yes, thats right. I graduate from college later this year so this was my last summer vacation from school. And I gotta say, it was one of the best. So I already posted my Maryland trip, right after that I headed to Utah to see Tara and her family.

We went to an awesome drive-in movie lot! Tara had her wisdom teeth out that morning and thinks she looked all drugged up. I look more drugged up in this picture, haha. We saw Toy Story 3 (awesome!) and Sorcerer's Apprentice (fucking stupid as shit).

I also found these cool finger puppets, and I only bought them because they looked like all my friends! Well...I can see the resemblance...

For our two year anniversary we went to this great place called the Mayan. Its like rainforest cafe but without the talking animals. Oh and people jumping off of rocks into a lagoon!

We played mini golf with her family at an indoor amusement park, Hollywood Connections. Tara's mom won...

They had the coolest...merry go round...I'm on a goat, mother fucker, don't you ever forget!!!

The Hogle Zoo, was cool! I found out I'm the same height as an adult male gorilla.

I was laughing at this guy cuz he just made a poop.

After that, we flew back to NY to join my family at our block party, where we did face painting for the little neighbor kids.

Aaaaand then we went to Magic Kingdom in Florida. Haha, my grandpa lives there and my mom wanted all of us to visit him. Check out Brer Zach and his Brer kin.

I made Tara go on Splash Mountain with me. She didn't wanna go on it. That ride is a goddamn tease! Sitting through the pleasant imagery of the Song of the South characters and the nice songs doesn't really mask the immense fear of going down a huuuge drop at the end of the ride. It was awesome!

We got a picture by Uncle Walt...and some weird fat guy in a blue shirt...

Yea, we're on a jet ski...what of it?

Lookit that! On the Mt. Dora canal! Such a cool view.

I got a lot of souvenirs but I found these two gems at a flea market! The little Mickey is from the 70's and speaks spanish! And if anyone's interested in the phone, let me know. The guy said its right from one of the Disney hotels.

We did a ton of other stuff that is not documented in our photos, but I have to say it was one of the most eventful summers I ever had. And right now, I'm just lookin back at it and being happy. I miss Tara so much, but I know we're going to see each other again. Long distance is hard, but its worth it for us. You can go to her blog to see what stuff she posted.

Well, tomorrow I move into my dorm for college. THESIS YEAR! Its no big deal, the city is like 2 hours away from my house. But I might make a post about it...sooo...keep watch! I got a couple art things I'll post later on too.

Thanks for reading!
