Hunger Games' Katniss and the Tracker Jackers

So here's Katniss treed under a swarm of tracker jackers. Haven't read Hunger Games? You probably have no idea what I'm talking about. I barely know what I'm talking about. I read all three books in four days a few months ago, so forgive me if I got some of the details wrong.

My brother told me The Hunger Games was like Ender's Game. It's not.

My Spirit Animal

Sketching this and that I think I've discovered my spirit animal. At least what my current spirit animal resembles. Those chipper birds? Nope. I'm pretty sure I'm channeling the globby blob of an elephant seal. That expression is so me. Currently. My house has been hard hit with the flu. Yuck. When we recover, if we recover, I'm hoping to fulfill my promises of the appearance of color. Maybe in time for spring?

Eliza and the Wolf

Thanks to Eliza for making worried faces when she hangs around me and my people. I'm hoping to get some color on this in the near future.

Church Folk: Reuben adds the fun

The happy star stickers are courtesy of Reuben. He always makes church more fun.

Sea of Sleep

Almost every night I dream of the ocean. Maybe that's one reason I think of sleep as something I sink into. I know my babies dream. I've read that brain scans show we begin to dream before birth. I wonder what such young consciousness deams of.

Tiger Girl

Oh, how I love my sweet baby girl! She's a strong, determined soul. I'm not surprised she was born in the year of the tiger.

Tiger Surprise

Yuck. I'm sick. So this is all there is for tonight. Hopefully it'll get filled out eventually.

Valentine's Under Painting

I was at a Valentine's dance and I spotted this girl in the hall, leaning against a wall. She was wearing a big puffy coat (close enough to a sweater right IF?) and she had tied a balloon to her head. I rarely do this, but I asked her if I could take her picture because I thought it'd make such a fun picture. I expected her to be shy about it but instead she said SURE! and gave me a great smile. Happy Valentines!

Fat and Happy

I was clearing off my desk tonight and found this little guy. I sketched him while I was stuck on a phone meeting. I think it's funny that under him I scribbled the note:

Want to fight?

I wish I could remember which meeting these notes went to. It looks like I was having a pretty good time.

This guy was hanging out on the same page.

My son loves tales of foxes and rabbits but he can never decide whose side he's on. He'll cheer for the fox til the rabbit is in mortal danger, then reverse his support and cheer for the rabbit's escape.

My Day

IF Surrender

Groundhog Day or the first day of the year of the rabbit? Time to fight it out
