My life looks like this a lot lately.

I feel Christmas came and went very quickly, perhaps like a driveway intruder, just stopping in to turn around. I celebrated with some tacos and people from work, an enjoyable get together, but not exactly in holiday spirit.

I associate Christmas with warmth, which is strange at such a cold time of year. Twinkling trees lights, that constant crinkling of wrapping paper, the cat excitedly knocking ornaments off the shelves, and delicious smells that waft in from the kitchen only during those few days out of every year just can't be compensated by anything else. I suppose all-in-all, that's why it was so easy for me to dismiss it this year.

Without the warmth of the season I didn't feel Christmas at all, and consequently, I didn't miss it, either.

But here's to the New Year!

Drawing Wednesday

I haven't drawn in a while, really, but after being constantly moving since I got to Osaka, I decided there would be no better way to spend my day off yesterday. So I sat blissfully on my cushy couch with Grimm on for background noise and drew.

Preliminary sketch.

He started out with pretty short hair, but it got longer as I inked, haha.

He's a character I have only ever really drawn a couple of times before. I'm such a dork with my characters.

An older drawing of him...

Haha, anyways. I'm so sleepy and my feet are cold! Good night.

hello again!

So, I'm in Japan now. I arrived in Osaka on Nov 26th and have been busily living for the first time in a long while since then, or at least that's what it feels like. I have many things to post, but I"ll get to them later when I'm less tired, I'm sure.

Today I spent all day running about acquiring documents and finding a phone-- settled on getting the new iPhone4S! --so I'm beat.

Though, probably the highlight of my move to Osaka, thus far, has been meeting up with Jiroko again after over a year! And Katie, though we met not too long ago before she left the US.

Now just to meet my Tokyo friends in March, maybe?

We have been talking about how Type A Jiroko is, and here is her planner, all out and ready to prove it! 

And some sexy (lol) purikura from our scandalous day in Umeda.

girly nude? And that leopard print combo was not planned at all, haha!

Good night, guys.
