Hey 2014! what a year! Right out of the gate in February big changes were afoot for me, the summer was a rollercoaster I referred to as my "Summer of Sex and Violence" documented in an illustrated journal that I started on July 1st after Colin and I parted ways after 12 years of cohabitation. In august, Atli and I rode our bikes to San Fransisco, and when I got home I ripped the band-aid off and Colin and I moved out of our apartment permanently. I will always care for Colin and he will be family to me for the rest of my life, but 12 years is a long time.
You might be able to gather from the title of my summer journal that the last few months have been somewhat dude-centric. Without getting into details, I have been very lucky. These are a couple of little paintings I've done inspired by some of the lovely souls I've met or gotten to know better or just simply admired in the summer glare.
