I was searching for reference pictures for this weeks hallway show, and instead of typing in Jason Alexander for some reason I typed in Lloyd Alexander by mistake, a guy who wrote some fantasy books I read in middle school.
He looks like this
which btw is exactly what I want my future husband to look like.
The problem with growing up on Fantasy and Science Fiction (and if it was published before 2000 and involved some sort of fantastical quest, magic, outer space, dystopian society, or all of the above, I've probably read it, bottom line) is that I feel like a huge failure if I'm not having some sort of crazy adventure. I can't get a real job, or have a home, or fall in love, until I've done all the first parts of the story, which is having a quest and nearly dying 50 times. I'm on the brink, and ready to have an adventure, and it's time, and all I need is a little cash, but what if I'm just being a crazy person and I should use the resources I have here instead of going gallivanting off into parts unknown?
Here's a drawing I did at work, to prove that I still can do things like this/"SHOW 'EM." I had to scan it a bunch of times because it's big. It's of this pretty cool wooden sculpture on the 2nd floor Promenade. From the front he looks like a ghoul but that drawing spot was taken already.
I made it in about 2 hours in between talking to this super annoying kid who was listening to Christian hardcore way too loud and singing along and wanted to show me his portfolio/draw me AND talking to this super awesome 79 year old man who in 2004/2005 WALKED ("I went through 6 pairs of shoes!") from LA to New York. He told me that and I 100% totally believe him. His name was Leonard and I talked to him for a while and he kept making me laugh and WE REALLY CONNECTED OK.
This post has way too much of me crushing on old guys. SICK. I'm not usually into that.
