so after a wonderfully relaxing weekend at home in massachusetts, a weekend filled with a 5am wake up call in the form of thousands of white-dress-hungry future wives at the twice annual ‘running of the brides’ event in boston, steven tyler-obsessed cover bands at the green fest in boston’s gov’t center, a late night time traveler’s rendition of a most beloved book, a thunderstorm-riddled pick up at the beach and subsequent changing of a redundant swim suit, and more ben & jerry’s than i’ve eaten through the entire summer thus far, i am on my way back to an equally heated and humid city, new york. it doesn’t seem like the end will be near anytime soon, however, as from my seat onboard megabus the line of cars in front of us along route 95 stretches far beyond the horizon. and so i’m attempting to watch brideshead revisited (although the internet keeps slowing, causing the movie to pause every minute and half), and research places to go in san francisco this week when i fly out there. anyone have any favorites?
so while i try to keep occupied and not think of the hours ahead of me on this lurching vehicle, i’ll leave you with another new illustration for the sketchbook project. this is for my very good friend jessie’s page – she’s ever growing in talent, creativity, friendship, life, love and everything beautiful, just as i think of the roots and branches and flowers and leaves of an oak tree. this will be filled in soon, but here is the initial skeleton:
cheers and happy sunday,
