Seattle Skyline

Hey! I gotta thank y’all for that pageview spike the other day. I don’t know how or why those happen, but when more people visit the site, ads start appearing (probably WordPress’ doing), which makes me happy.

In other news, it’s now been over a year since I moved from Washington to Utah, so it’s finally appropriate to share this watercolor piece (the backlog is really empty now, I swear). I’m not a particularly amazing painter, but there’s a lot to this one—the Seahawks colors, Mount Rainier looming in the distance, and the city’s shadow dripping down the paper. Ain’t it something?

More importantly, I’d like to take this moment to thank everyone back in Bellevue. I still miss you all so much, and I don’t know who I’d be today if I didn’t get to grow up with you.

Hey everybody, I hope you are having better days than I am. I’m guessing you don’t come down here to read about my problems, though, so allow me to change the subject.

Here’s another assignment from my drawing class; we were told to draw the portrait of anybody we pleased, and I couldn’t think of anyone better than this famous actor (hopefully you can tell who he is without even needing to read the title). He’s pictured here based on a notable scene from Parks and Recreation, but you might know him from Guardians of the Galaxy, and/or Jurassic World. Anyway, I think he’s a great actor and a genuinely good guy, and he’s from the Seattle area, so that’s cool! This is the first “realistic” portrait I’ve posted, so any feedback would be welcome!
