Cupcakes and Machetes Birthday Shout-out!

Wishing a very Happy Birthday to my BFF of 20 years, and fellow blogger, Cupcakes and Machetes!! In honor of her big day I decided to draw a pic of the birthday girl.

Looking forward to birthday shenanigans with her this weekend and giving her her b-day prezzies. ❤ If you aren’t familiar with this fantastic lady, I highly recommend checking out her blog. It’s got all the goods: book reviews, delicious baked good recipes, and cute pet photos to name a few.

Birthday Bonus: I think I found photographic evidence of her spirit animal.

Or perhaps it’s Linda from Bob’s Burgers. 😛

Paper and Pencils, and Sharpies, Oh My!

I was in a drawing mood the other day and wound up doing a few quick sketches, and figured I’d share them here. 🙂 Most of my drawings I’ve posted on here are older pieces, but I’m slowly but surely trying to get back into drawing again. Another goal being to learn lots of new art-related skills of various kinds through online tutorials this year.

They’re nothing fancy, but I was feeling creative and had fun doing it. 🙂

Any of you guys working on anything crafty or artsy right now? I’d love to hear about it. What sort of creative hobbies do you have or would you like to learn?

Booze. ‘Splosions. ‘MURICA!

If I was an egotistical person I would find it no small coincidence that fireworks are going off in the background as I write this first blog post. I would smile smugly, assured by all the surrounding festivities that I was giving the people what they want.

Fortunately, I have the confidence and self-worth of a bloated trash raccoon that dances for discarded pizza crusts outside the local frat guys’ dumpster each Friday night, so I am aware that these fireworks are for some other reason entirely. (Obviously some other blogger writing about far more entertaining topics like travel, fashion, or where to get the best coffee enema outside of Los Angeles.)

Fireworks aside, welcome to my blog. It isn’t much now, but I plan on posting frequently about anything and everything creative. Whether it’s works of my own, works I admire by others, or just random ramblings about the struggle and adventure of creating something one is passionate about. I have a love for good stories, no matter the medium they come in. I look forward to sharing my own journey and reading about the stories of others here. (Except maybe you coffee enema bloggers. I just don’t know about you guys . . .)
