Day 121: Garlic


Tonight’s project was a little ode to garlic. My roommate is always making fun of me for having so much garlic in the house (right now I have 3.5 bulbs), but I just can’t help it! I love it. I use it on everything! Veggies, meat, pasta, pizza. It’s delicious!

Perhaps by the time my roomie gets home from her vacation, I will have used up all 3.5 bulbs. Although by then, I guess I will have already bought more.


Day 120: Moroccan-Spiced Lamb Pastitsio

Lamb Pastitsio

Last night, Jim and I made the moroccan-spiced lamb pastitsio from Jim’s favorite cooking blog, All Season’s Cuisine. We stayed pretty true to the recipe (except that we cut down the amount of cinnamon), and it turned out absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it for the next time you’re looking for a rich and savory dish.


Day 119: Woodpecker

Woodpecker Drawing

I based this little birdie on a drawing in a vintage book I got at a rummage sale today. Jim says it’s definitely a woodpecker, but he can’t figure out what kind it is and it isn’t labeled in the book I got. Strange.

Anyways, woodpeckers have a special place in my heart right now because there is one that lives in my neighborhood and spends lots of time in the tree right outside my front door. Pretty much every morning when I wake up, I can hear it pecking away. It’s a nice sound.


Day 118: Park Clean-up

Union Park and Willis Tower

Cleaning the Park

In Action


Happy to Help


Yesterday, several of my co-workers and I cleaned Union Park as a belated celebration for Earth Day. I volunteered to be photographer and got a few great shots.


Day 117: Foot


Phew! Drawing a foot is hard. I actually screwed up my first attempt so bad I had to start over. The first version somehow ended up having a giant heel area and tiny toes. Oops!


Day 116: Scary Man

Scary Man

Tonight, I worked on trying to recreate a particular distorted image of a man’s face. Since I didn’t quite capture it tonight, I’ll be trying again over the next day or two. When I finally get it, I’ll post the image along with it.



Day 115: Corn


Tonight I made a doodle of an ear of corn, which is kind of weird because I’m always talking about how I don’t like corn. I mean, it’s barely even a vegetable, and doesn’t really have any nutritional value. Also, it’s all sweet and weird. I’m just not a fan. To be fair, though, I do like corn bread. That stuff is amazing.


Day 114: Woman

WomanTonight I did a pen drawing of a woman in the same style as the man I drew the other day. I am kinda digging the style because I’m really enjoying creating these sorts of creepy characters. Maybe I’ll do a few more in the upcoming weeks.


Day 113: Lamps

This week I want to try to sell some vintage lamps on Craigslist this week so yesterday I took some pictures to include in the posts. Here are a few of my favs.


Day 112: Man


I must say, I really like this drawing. Perhaps it’s because the man is so creepy.
