Reblogging old art- I’d like to revisit this sketch one day (after I have some of the million other things I’d like to do done)
really quick paint sketch??? idk I saw this woman at the store today and I didn’t see her face, but I really liked the cut of the dress on her figure and the color with her complexion and tried to remember her the best I could so I could get it down later because I’m creepy
I feel like I’ve been so lazy these past few weeks when it comes to doing things, bluh, I’ve just bee feeling kind of weird - maybe I’d feel better if I actually sat down and made myself do something for real
Reminder you can follow me on both twitter and instagram under the handle killerlamb. I tweet about Florida and post pictures of weird Florida stuff, art progress and messes, and animals. And I’m on a mission to up my selfie game under the tag #selfielikeurzelda, inspired by a post from last night.
So if any of that or my face appeals to you you should follow me.
kinda lonely over in those parts
Tho the Secretary General of the united food and commercial workers international union follows me which is… weird?
Lately I’ve been talking about jelly beans and how much my mom hated Reagan (she still hates him, or his legacy? But it was clear as a child, Reagan no bueno)

Enchanting Forests In The World
This just goes to show that everywhere is beautiful except the United States and I don’t belong here
Are you KIDDING me?
And that’s just the A’s! That’s not including gems from North Dakota:
And even New Jersey:
And that’s just ONE picture of ONE place in each of ten out of fifty states. Don’t tell me those aren’t just as beautiful even if the photography used in some of them might not be as detailed or professional.
You really want to appreciate what we have here? Watch Ken Burns’ The National Parks: America’s Best Idea—it’s streaming on netflix right now.. Not only will you get to see just how much wilderness we’ve protected, but you’ll discover that the US was the country that came up with the national park system in the first place, preserving wilderness areas for the people and for their own preservation. I’m not much of a “‘murica! RAH RAH!” kind of person, but I damned well WILL defend our wilderness places and the fact that we have as many as we do.
Now get out there and explore some of them before you go whinging about how we don’t have any beautiful places.
As an American immigrant, one of the first stereotypes about this country that got shattered was the one that America is mostly cities. It’s not—there are acres and acres of untouched and protected wilderness and nature preserves, and they’re fucking beautiful.
Hell, even here where I live in Silicon Valley, an hour’s drive away from San Francisco is a waterfall that runs into the sea:
It’s located in Point Reyes, a 70,000-acre protected park:
Just looking through the notes on this, happy that there was now a version with my tackily tacked on mangrove swamp going around (not the mangrove swamp being tacky, just me being all indignant and having to add it, save the mangroves!) - and here, more beautiful forests/places. America is a really really beautiful place (but Florida especially nyaah)
I will never ever tire of hearing Andre 3000 asking me what’s cooler than being cool. Or telling me that’s he’s my neighbor. I just love that song.

You cannot undo irony you can only embrace it and thus hope to transcend it
I want to be less compact, less disc.
I used to hoard all those aol disks as a kid for art projects. I made a clock out of one. In my defense I was like 8.
Just checked, Ryan North’s To Be or Not To Be is officially on order at the library and I am #1 on the holds list success!
(I’m down to number 5 from 26 for season 3 Game of Thrones after a short 3 or 4 months)
