Ummmm what's this?!  
A half-assed post? NO WAY.

SOOOo.. lately I haven't so much been doing drawing as I have been doing typography. I'd like to take a class, but I'm afraid then I'll hate typography and start drawing again. (SUCH IS ME. YAY I SUCK.) But we'll see. Maybe someday. Anyhoo, here's the stuff from my sketchbook that I like.

HAY KRISTI LOOK IT'S A SIMURGH IN A TREE. I thought it would make you happy.
For some reason I want to sing about it to the tune of "Blinded by the light"
"SIIIMURGH IN A TREE!" Buuut that just probably went over everyone's heads. Oh well. He's in a tree. About sparrow sized. I was just thinking about how Kristi always mocks the build of the simurgh and I think that maybe they could flit about trees. If they were small, you know.

UHHH REALLY THIS ONE IS MY FAVOURITE. No joke. I spent like all of class today drawing on it because I can't take notes to save my life because it's awesome.

HAY LOOK ANOTHER SIMURGH. This one is blurry, natch. So my scanner is broken. That's why I'm taking photos. This kind of sucks.

I like these. :)

Dude I am so into lions right now you guys have no idea. I AM NOT LION. HAH. But seriously.

Whilst discussing Romulus and Remus.

Aaaaand yes. There's art. YAY.

Oh man, that is about the cutest Simoifdjuosjdfk I have ever seen. Can they have snake tails instead of fish tails? Because that actually works remarkably well, and would be a pseudo-feasible chimera ;)


I am so jealous of all your sexy calligraphy. I think when I am a pathologist, I am going to have you hand-write all of my reports. WE WILL BE THE CLASSIEST TEAM EVER. DIAGNOSING CANCER WITH FLAIR.

Also: stylized lion and wolf? Kind of amazingly cute.

Man, I keep drawing lions for various reasons as well, which is kind of ridiculous considering cats are like, one of the things I suck at MOST.

Hahaha, man, I need to make a post. I can't believe the last was like 3 MONTHS AGO WTF.

HAHAHAHAA THANKS. Um, you know I didn't even think about the fact that I was giving him a snake tail until you pointed it out. SO, UH, YES. Though actually I'm learning now the Simurgh (senmurv simourgh etc) is ALSO just a big-assed bird, which really isn't as cool as my chimera thing. BLARGH.

lol, I will be allllll over it. Also if/when you finally get your degree certs, if the calligraphy sucks I will totally stage a formal protest to Cornell University. I've seen really, really, really fugly doctoral certificates from OHSU (I mean, yeah they're not ivy league but um, they're like a higher up school around here) and I hope they don't do that shit to you when it comes to your formal certs. That'd make me SERIOUSLY pissed.

Lions are AMAZING. And yeah, I really don't understand cat anatomy at all. I mean, I don't understand any anatomy at all realy, but cat less than everything else.

You don't want to take a typography class, I am taking one right now. Calligraphy is probably more what your looking for although I will be honest having taken both at an art school they are a lot harder and not nearly as fun as I thought they would be. Unless you like spending 3 hours justifying a paragraph of type. Then is SUPAR fun. <.
