Girl Scout Sightings

Despite the very chilly temps and rain, the local Girl Scouts were out in force last night while I was out doing some grocery shopping. The girls looked like the younger brother from A Christmas Story(a tick about to pop. Their arms wouldn't really go down too). Anyways, I totally caved and bought a box of thin cookies were consumed while drawing this up; though I can't vouch for the rest of the day.

P.S. While 30-40 degree weather is certainly cold for's not that bad for THAT many layers of clothing. I saw plenty people in flipflops/shorts back in Oregon when this was considered a "high".

Skeleton Drawings...

Visited the Natural History Museum in LA yesterday and drew some prehistoric beasties:

These guys were in the Age of the Mammals exhibit. As a side note: Mister Smilodon's lower-jaw was very much dislocated....

I've been spending part of my weekend at the zoo, fighting off both crowds and a serious case of rusty drawings.

This also marks my first maiden voyage with my new scanner! Much better then my cellphone...

Modern day zombie attack

Apparently a small percentage of the female population like to randomly come up without asking, and pull my curly hair. It happened all the time when I worked at Target, but this hasn't happened since then. Well, today was the day for a comeback, just running a few mindless errands in Pasadena...when from my left a clerk tried to pull one on me. I caught her before she had a chance and I was able to walk away unscathed. So it's only fair I retaliate with drawing and blog posts!

Essentially these incidents are the equivalent of a zombie attack from my viewpoint. Complete stranger inching towards me, dead behind the eyes, creepy outstretched arms as they try to yank a follicle....just not right! Though it's highly amusing afterwards.

And on a side-note--flip-flop weather arrived today! Woo!
