The Weekly Update - An Engagement & Parties

I thought I would try something new and start doing a weekly update. Cool things going on at work. Unrelated stuff happening in my life. And I will finish it out with my top 3 things I'm loving this week.

Well, to start out, over Labor Day weekend, my boyfriend, Ali, and I got engaged!! Woot! Honestly came as a surprise. But a good surprise. Involved a nice sunset walk on the beach.

So, person projects have taken a bit of a back seat as I search for a wedding venue. 

In other news, still working at Glu. I have really, really been enjoying my time there. The people I work with are great and I feel like I've known them for a really long time. I hope I get extended or become full-time because I'd hate to leave. 

This week we finally went out to celebrate the release of Dino. They took the team bowling. It was a ton of fun! 

I actually had more fun at that then I did at the Destiny release party the night before (Congrats to Ali & the rest of the Bungie crew!!). Maybe because I don't drink. It was still nice though. They rented out the EMP Museum in Seattle so we got to walk around the museum after hours. And they had a room full of stations where you could play the game. If you haven't checked it out, you should. :) And same goes for Dino Hunter ;P

That pretty much sums up my week. Lots of parties. Lots of fun. And an engagement. :)

Here are my top 3 things I'm loving this week:
1. "Lovely: Ladies of Animation" Art book. Just got my copy in the mail from when I backed their kickstarter. Really loving it! Features personal art from Lorelay Bove, Brittany Lee, Claire Keene, Lisa Keene, Victory Ying, & Helen Chen. Available on amazon, so definitely check it out! 

2. My new favorite mobile game: "TsumTsum". It's a Disney themed puzzle game. Super cute, originally from Japan. Ali &  I play like everyday, we're obsessed. 

3. And last, not really art related, but fun for all us geeks out there: Loot Crate Subscription Box. You pay a subscription fee & every month they send you a box fill with all sorts of geeky things. It's fun. Like getting a birthday present once a month. :) They send cool figurines & comic books & posters. I usually keep half & then gift other things. It's fun to just open it up & see all the surprises. >>

Have a good week everyone!!

A Long Overdue Update


Its definitely been awhile since I've done an update. So here we go!

First, I was gone 2 weeks in May. Touring Spain & Germany! 'Twas super fun and inspiring. Lots of nice architecture & art museums. Here are some highlights:

Aaaand that's only the tip of the iceberg. I have oh so many more pictures. I can't wait until the next time I get to travel out of the country!! I'll admit though, I meant to do soooo much more drawing (or any drawing at all) during the trip, but it ended up just being a lot of us either sightseeing or sleeping. There wasn't much in between. 

Then, when I got back it took a very long time to recover. I only recently started to draw again. But, I shall strive to keep it up!

Work is going good. You'll be getting an update about that in a week or two. Exciting things!! 

Welp, that's basically it. Just busy with work. Spending a lot of time outdoors, now that the weather here in Seattle is warming up. :) 

Until later!

Best of Daily Sketch - April

This month brings many quick doodles from my notebooks. I've been pretty busy with work & life and haven't found as much time to sit & draw. So instead I've just been doodling! But I've really liked my doodles this month. Hope you enjoy them as well!
