Bike ridins, and bay to breakers

So... haven't drawn recently.. been keeping busy, plans everyday to see my friends before I leave the country.. I feel sort of like I'm acting like I'm dying in 3 weeks.. I put in my 2 weeks notice at work yesterday, so now it's official and I can talk about it out loud. My heart and head are swirling with so many emotions that I can't even tell you what I'm feeling right now, but I guess I could try- I'm nervous that I won't get my work visa in time.. I'm sad to be leaving all of the people that I know and love. I'm sad to be leaving San Francisco, especially now that I'm taking advantage of it. I'm crazy excited to be going to New Zealand, and excited to find my new home and settle in on my own for the very first time.. I could scream. I just did!

anyway, I went on an excellent bike ride this past saturday. After some tasty blue bottle iced coffee, Luke, Ross and I met up with Jordan and Ross' friends Percy, Norm, and Seth, who are all super cool, by the way. We started at the Embarcadero, and rode thru hunter's point, yay, and all the way down to Millbrae! We got to the fucking airport! it was ridiculous! It was nice and warm, and I surprised myself by being able to keep going with the guys and not pass out after the first 2 hrs. I could have kept going, really, i fell in love with bike riding that day, more than I knew I had loved it before. (I love you sammy..). We did a great deal of drinking and laughing after that. Really, I need to be smarter about my intake...

On sunday I dressed up as the White Rabbit for Bay to Breakers. I would have enjoyed it more if it wasn't so fucking cold. ..I'm so pleased that I got to play the white rabbit, though, that character has been in my head for a long while now....

more sketches

here are more sketches exploring that animal girl theme. i'm leaning more towards the first image of this post, not so much the 3rd but i experimented. i've always liked the idea of (a character) wearing a skull as a helmet of sorts... i know wendling did this in iguana bay and im pretty sure that inspiration is direct. i fucking love claire wendling and im done being conscious of whether i'm copying or not. this is what i like! so there! check her out.
