Russian Circles

I cleansed myself of Saturday’s club beatz with some Sunday METAL. Fuzzy and fog-filled phone photos: Not a show I’d usually check out but I’m glad I did- it was great and super fun to see with Ian. Sandrider went right into a flurry of intense, high energy jams. And So I Watch You From […]

Starry-Eyed Disco

I first saw sequined eyelashes from Shimmer Twins and loved them so much that I decided to whip up a home version. Unfortunately, the pair I made last night was totally underwhelming- too skimpy on the stars. So, I woke up this morning and remedied the situation by gluing on a shit-ton more sequins, adding […]

Psychedelic Kicks

Ian let me sharpie and paint up his (formerly) all-white All-Stars! I always seem to start off at a loss on crafts for other people so I started by re-creating a doodle I did on my old college shoes. The rest is heavily inspired by album art for Odessey and Oracle by The Zombies and […]

The Sleeping Beauty (La Belle Endormie)

The story opens traditionally enough: a bad fairy curses baby Anastasia but three good fairies use their magic to soften the blow. Instead of dying, Anastasia […]

Power Tool Races, Journalism, and Other Georgetown Curiosities

Some photos I snapped this past Saturday at the Georgetown Carnival. Despite some early clouds, the day was bright and warm. Grey skies, sunny mobiles. I ended up seeing a couple similar pictures in my Instagram feed- I guess it was a good spot! Treat time! Excessorized to perfection. Dinner at Katsu Burger. Nate and […]

Weekend Reads

Spent Sunday evening curled up with the cat and a small stack of minis. Most were picked up at Stumptown Comics Fest but a couple were before that. 1. Neely Covers Comics to Give You the Creeps! by Tom Neely- What a treat! I’m so happy these covers are collected in this perfect book. I […]

May Wrap-Up

Instagram’ed May: Early Sundays at the market, Martin gearing up for office cleaning, Westlake’s blue trees (again), pimping Ian’s sneakers, magical cake pops, disco jack! My two favorite fellas, a saucy tree in Vancouver, blueberry strawberry rhubarb pie (my first pie of the year), ‘Here Forever’ in an empty building, climbing rocks in impractical shoes, […]
