The Heart is Fascinating

I took 3 terms of anatomy this past school year and enjoyed the hell out of it. There were so many things I learned that I felt stupid for not knowing already. It’s seems weird to me that we all have this stuff in us, but not all of us are taught much about it. I think it also comes down to being taught when you’re in a mindset to receive the…

Holiday Giveaway with Corky Friendz

Portland, OR — Ahhhhh! Why have I not been blogging?! Well. . . school. It’s going well so far, only a few issues with professors – the most annoying things right now are that my nutrition professor can’t spell or create coherent quizzes and my Psych teacher pronounces the word “etcetera” as “egg-sedra.” It drives me nuts. haha On to more important things! The holidays are coming quick and I…

Artwork For Charity & Pet Portrait Raffle!

As I mentioned in my last entry, I will be attending Oregon State University this Fall, majoring in Nutrition. While I was filling out my school application, I realized I haven’t done much charitable giving other than dropping off items here and there to Goodwill and The Salvation Army. I decided to make more of an effort to help others in my own way. I remembered reading last year about the…

Merging Careers: Art & Science, hand-in-hand?

A blogger I follow published an article yesterday mentioning how July is half over already and its been a month since he last posted anything. I realized I haven’t published a new article since May! Well, if you’re interested, I’d like to explain why: About a year to a year and a half ago I was living in an apartment with my boyfriend and another roommate. I was working crappy…

Gigantic Wedding Themed Giveaway with Crooked Brook, Corky Friendz, and The Mohawk Valley Trading Company

Portland, OR — Wedding season is here and being recently engaged, I’ve been staring blankly at the seemingly endless list of tasks I need to get done before the big day. Also, as many of you likely know, Oregon lifted it’s ban on gay marriage this week and it is now legal for same-sex couples to tie the knot in this beautiful state! Now they can legally clamp on their ball-and-chain like…

Band T-Shirt Giveaway

I was recently commissioned to do a sketch of Teddy MacSpade, a past and founding member of The Toasters; one of the longest active third wave ska bands. MacSpade still plays occasionally, using the ’68 Goldtop Les Paul and the ’71 Sunburst Strat he did back in the day. When I was done with the sketch, I wanted to send them a little something extra as a thank-you so, I scanned…
