Just a little Hello!

Hello blog people! I’m heading to Las Vegas in the morning for a trip with my favorite cousin (more like my sister) so I thought I’d pop on here and say hello quickly… I’m hoping I’ll get a chance to draw on my mini vacation, maybe by the pool or something, although it’s supposed to be like 110 degrees which is disgusting. Keep your fingers crossed though and hopefully, I’ll make some content for this here old blog of mine; might be skewed by consumption of alcohol, but content nonetheless. Until then, I’ll just leave this here…



Marti Nap Time


This is my dog… his name is Mad Martigan, Marti for short, or Madigan if you’re my grandpa. He’s like Ferdinand the Bull (anyone out there read that when they were little? It was one of my favorites) he likes smelling flowers, and being chill, which, those are things I like too, so, we’re kinda like two pees in a pod, except he’s WAY cuter, and obviously furrier; we’re both a bit fluffy though.

He was taking a quick little snooze, and I just can’t pass up the chance to draw him, he’s my favorite. One day, there will be a book all about him, cause, seriously, SQUEEEEEE, the cutest! I don’t just say that cause he’s my fur-baby, I think if you asked just about anyone who has met him, and they’d agree.


Much Excite

So, it’s been a few days… but I am here briefly today to tell you: I got a new sketchbook, and the paper with Copic markers is just UGH… SOOOO GOOD. I came straight home from work and started color swatching. I ignored all the other important things I should have been doing, hence why it is almost 11pm and I’m just getting around to doing something with today’s post. So, here, because no post is complete without a picture of something…


speed doodles seem to be what I do lately. But soon, I’ll actually be spending some time on arts and crafts, and then you will be shocked, cause it might actually look a bit nice and artsy and all that good stuff.

Dare I say ’till tomorrow’? Oh, I dare, and only time will tell if I make an appearance.

Allergy Shot Feels

Had my first allergy shot today, cause, I’m allergic to pretty much everything that grows in the state of Colorado. Allergies, it’s been fun and all for the last 20 years, but I’m saying good bye,  it’s not you, it’s me… who am I kidding, it’s you allergies, it’s all you!

Anyways, rant aside, went in for my first shot and the doctor tells you all the symptoms that are highly unlikely but could maybe happen. Well, yeah, as soon as I was told all the things, I was acutely aware of every sniffle, every itch, and how weird swallowing is (just in general, it’s kinda a weird thing, like most things about how we work). I was too aware, thinking toooooooooo much, as I do.

I didn’t have a reaction by the way, totally fine, at least for now. I just had to talk myself down a few times, because, yeah, one itch and I was certain I was the 1% that has a reaction.



I mean talk about a sense of doom, I have that feeling sometimes without it having to be a reaction to a shot. Anyone else out there have allergies, taken allergy shots, are just slightly crazy in the head like me? Let me know people, let me know; we can commiserate together.

How it feels

I have been wounded today, by a box. Stupid boxes, stupidly being everywhere and needing to be opened and taped shut and broken down and built. GAHHHHHH!!! The monsters! One of those cardboard demons attacked me early this morning, and I’m hopping I don’t succumb to a flesh eating virus.

Okay, so, I’m being a bit dramatic, but seriously, people have gotten flesh eating virus from things like paper cuts yeah??? Pretty sure I read it somewhere. Or, maybe, it’s another myth my brother told me when I was little, like the gremlins living in the toilet are going to steal me away if I go use the bathroom at night… I don’t know the truth of things anymore.


Here’s another quick scribble of my paper cut feelings. So, yeah, till tomorrowish!

Laboring on Labor Day

Packing boxes, stuffing pillows…. kill me please.

I was in a rush to draw something up today, and get it posted; so, apologies on the quality. I also only had a handful of colors to play with.

Anyways, HAPPY LABOR DAY to all you folks out there getting to celebrate the day by camping, and spending time with loved ones and generally just taking the day off. I’m celebrating by working apparently…  but I know I’m not alone, I’m surrounded by boxes and pillows and plenty of things to do.


Till tomorrow… dun dun duuuuuuuun!

a coffee run in the rain

I got lot’s to do today. Day job work sentence, babysitting puppies time, and cleaning house duties; you know… lots and lots of fun (ugh). Now, don’t get me wrong… puppy sitting is mostly fun, but still lots of shit. So, I thought if I was ever going to post something today and not three years hence; I best be doing it now.

Day 2. September 2nd 2016:

So, I made a coffee run this morning, cause, duh, coffee and mornings go best together. And it’s a rainy type of day, fall has certainly arrived early this year up in the Colorado Rockies. But, to the point… I drew what I might have looked like to the raindrops falling on my head as I bustled down the rain strewn brick streets of a somewhat bustling city with a coffee cup clutched in my hand.

coffee in the rain

It was a good exercise in perspective anyways, plus, I totally used the new Copic colors I got! New art supplies are just such a squeeeeeeeee good feeling thing.

Dare I say: “See you tomorrow!” EEEEK!!!!  I might just make a habit of this.
