wasn’t so bad of a day

I thought i was going to have a horrible day today. I had to run around all over the place, get my speech for tonight done, then prepare for tomorrows speech and cancel on the Bill Plympton event at the Society of Illustrators.

But reviewing it, it wasn’t a bad day at all. I got my watch fixed, I got to ride my longboard all over the place, I ate some good Congee, i finished my speech and prepared a keynote for it and then my classmate tells me our professor isn’t feeling so well and that class is cancelled. With much excitement I rushed over to the Society and GaBam!! I got an autographed sketch from Bill Plympton himself. It was awesome.

The Show was fantastic, I learned a little of how he does his drawings and his short animations were all so hilarious to watch. I especially liked Fascist Santa, that got me cracking up so hard. and he drew me a sketch of that too!

I even managed to get myself to sketch on the train ride home which rarely happens anymore because I’m usually so tired. The whole night ended on a good note. : )


Painting at the Met

I think i found my all time favorite spot in the Met. It’s the Chinese exhibit that i mentioned from an earlier post. I love this place! its so calm and relaxing. Last week it was so annoying because there was tourist all over the place. “pssh, you’re a new yorker, you should be used to it.” you would say but take a look at this:

I don’t care if you’re a New Yorker or not. It’s just ridiculous to go to a museum with THAT many people. It makes any museum visit less enjoyable.

Well most of the tourist are gone by now so I can actually take a picture without anyone getting in the shot. When I sat down to paint I think a total of 1o people passed by within 45 minutes? Which is pleasant! the whole time i just hear water running in the background, its really serene. So I ended up painting this:

The paintings I’m submitting for the Society of Illustrators is due this monday so after monday i should have something up of what i did.

you go girl!
