Oh dandelion, you’re such a dandy lion. The mark of summer is here and the sun is making everything and everyone go crazy. Bask in it’s light and warm as long as possible, for the skies of gray soon return to bring the rains and pains. Sure, it’s a weed, but it’s one of those […]
Dog-sitting Kylee and Loa. Kylee was so excited to see me, she burst into howls and was practically flipping. Spending some quality time with the beasts seemed to calm them down. Now, cool dogs walk away from explosions. But I don’t have any explosions, so here is Kylee looking cool. Doo-dee-doo.
Starting month 5 with a simple snapshot of one of my bikes with a mural. I haven’t spent much time with the better camera in the last couple of weeks as I try to finish off some other creative projects that have taken me far longer than anticipated. This mural can be found at 15th […]
Another full weekend of drawing, tracing, rendering, and making vector art. I haven’t spent this much time on an art project in such a long time. It feels AWESOME to see something start to come together. I can hardly wait to share the full project with the rest of the world soon. Also, my first […]
Draw the dog you want, not the dog you have. We also don’t have a dog. I spent most of this day working on a drawing project rather than running around taking photos of real dogs. Apologies for potato resolution of the potato dog. You should enjoy Patao_dog. We call him Potato-dog.
Second day in Eugene, wandering our AirBnB’s property I happen to come across this tiny house hanging in a tree. It made me think about our own tiny house, the Cozy Cottage in which we were guests of the weekend, and how small of a house a bird needs to be “happy” as much as […]
Our first visit to the Cascades Raptor Center in Eugene, OR. We’ve been wanting to get over here for a couple of years now and finally had the opportunity to spend an evening with these amazing birds. This Gyrfalcon named Nike really grabbed my attention with her remaining eye and curiosity. From CRC’s website: […]
At the entrance to the Oregon Zoo, there stood a mountain goat. Its name unknown to most. As rain pelted its back, it eyed us with a dark stare, but soon something changed its posture. “The Mountains Are Calling and I Must Go!” Alas, our friend is still growing fat in the loving arms of captivity.
I’m always intrigued by the easy access of this roof. The razor wire only adds to the forbidden fruit of this rooftop and the magical views it keeps out of my grasp. When this building was designed and built, were the people of that era completely uninterested in exploring the bounds of architecture? Honestly, I don’t […]
First thing this morning, we opened our front door to find a stunned Anna’s Hummingbird right next to the doorway. We can only assume it was in a territorial chase when it hit the front door and knocked itself silly. At first, we thought it was dead, but after Audrey scooped him up in her […]
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to see parts of Portland from an angle well above ground level. It definitely helps me see the city and lights in a different way. Whatever is going down in Pioneer Square reminds me of the latter part of ET:The Extra Terrestrial when the federal/scientist/authorities put the […]
