Horses & Books

After New York, we stayed at a beautiful Virginia house with horses.

I read about four books during this East Coast trip: 
Dan Brown's Inferno
It was just ok and mostly predictable except one BIG twist that I appreciated, but I think The Da Vinci Code is hard to top.

Leigh Bardugo's Shadow & Bone
Surprisingly good, I love the cover and the map inside, and Russian-esque setting.

Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave 
Very gripping read; I kept wondering how the characters were going to escape situations.

Maria Semple's Where'd You Go, Bernadette 
It was brilliant.

I also started that Game of Thrones series, but that's going pretty slow because I have to remember so many characters with weird names and their relations and their dogs' names and where the heck they are all located and moving to and why.

New York

Just got back early this morning from a fantastic East Coast visit.  I visited a lot of family and had a lot of fun eating food with them.  

But I'm sure whoever reads this doesn't really care to see pictures of my family, and maybe they don't even want to see this blog.  Maybe whoever is reading this actually wanted to learn about some person named Danielle who has a trial going on or something.  So, sorry if I'm not the Case you're looking for. 

Anywho, I'll just post some stuff then.

Screen Cap #18

From "Moonrise Kingdom"--fantastic movie, like anything you should expect from Wes Anderson.
Reference from the Moonrise Kingdom Facebook page.  Approx. 45 minutes.

Saw a daughter playing on an iPhone next to her doodling dad today.

How to Be a Bluth

Make the pieces:


Attach to apron and start selling bananas.

Tip: Works better with scissors and glue, not an X-Acto knife and tape

Screen Cap #16

I really liked painting this one!  Maeby because the idea of escaping an ankle monitor via balloons is funny.  It took about an hour.  I need to make the door handles more contrast-y and metalic, and the balloons inside blurry, but there's only so much time in an hour--something like 60 minutes.


Playlist: Atlas Genius, The Veragroove

Screen Cap #15

This is about a week overdue.  I've been doing stuff, though!  I am now only one season behind in "Psych" and "The Office" and read around 600 pages!  But also I've been away from my dear tablet, working on caricatures for a grad night, and getting post-semester errands done.  I even updated my portfolio and resume!

But here's screen cap #15:
This screen cap of one of the best "Arrested Development" characters took about an hour.
