Kirby's Epic Yarn

Imagine a world made from art and crafts supplies.. rolling hills of buttons, dragons made of yarn, fabric skies that unzip to another galaxy..
Well, that world has come into reality. In the form of Kirby's Epic Yarn.
This will be the first video game I've wanted for myself in 10 years (the last one being Donkey Kong 64). It's at the top of my Christmas list (hint hint, mom :)

I am seriously SO excited about playing this game. Not only is it BEAUTIFUL but it's supposedly easy to play and impossible to die.. perfect for me! Plus, I'm just going to throw this out there, I think it will inspire me and make me a better artist.. Atleast that's what I'll tell my teachers when my projects aren't finished because I spent all night "gaming".

Falling like the leaves.

Fall break is here, and I am welcoming it with open arms.
I've been on break for approximately 12 hours, and so far I've: taken a 5 hour nap, baked cupcakes, watch the Babies documentary, caught up on Glee, and started on my next illustration project.. If I keep going at this rate, I'll get so much done this week!

Last weekend we took a quick road trip to Austin with some friends.

It's such a cool city.. full of "trailer parks" like the one above, awesome galleries, live music, and bright colors.
Let me take a minute to tell you about the mighty cone. This is a taco with fried chicken, fried avocado, and slaw.. all wrapped in a tortilla and stuffed in a cone. Who thought of that? It's a genius idea that ensures I'm going to pick the mighty cone over some average joe taco stand.
Also, I've been really into making pumpkin spice lattes lately.. now if only we could get some consistently cooler weather I'd be happy.

Too tired.

Too tired to think of a title.
Too tired to get off this couch and go to bed.
Too tired to write about anything pretty much.

I will say, today was an awesome day because Danny and I got to go to coffee slingers this morning before class. It makes my day better when I start it off with a latte, I swear.

This is my second illustration project:
World Record: A man lifted a 140 lb. girl with his beard.

So yeah, still loving that class. So much fun.
Plans for this weekend include watching poorly made movies (seriously thats my homework, once again being an art major is awesome), cleaning, and hopefully doing a whole lot of sleeping.
Night, all.

Perks of being at art major.

Well, there are many. But the one I'm talking about in particular is the ability to watch tv while I'm working on my homework. How else would I be able to keep up with my never ending list of shows?

1. Gossip Girl
2. Glee
3. Survivor
4. Modern Family
5. Project Runway
6. The Office
7. Community
8. Dexter
(Listed in sequential order, of course)

And then I have all the random shows I watch when none of my regulars are on..
Real Housewives
America's Next Top Model
Cake Boss
LA Ink
Various Disney shows (yes, still)
According to Jim
That 70's Show reruns
.. dare I go on?

I figured I'd just write them all out so everyone can see how big of an addict I am, also probably so I can keep track of them myself :)

I'll leave you with my precious chub of a cousin:
