In OTHER news, i got to hang out with Paul Pope all weekend, NO BIG DEAL OR ANYTHING. Jesus this place…

Paul also came with Sam Hiti –

Now, I will be honest – i had never heard of Sam Hiti before they came, but he is by far my favorite.  The guy is friggin awesome.   we went out to dinner on saturday and Paul drew THESE on the table (among others)     and yes, paul pope did in fact buy me dinner.  IS THIS REAL LIFE?!?!?

BUENOS DIAS

Whew, its been an interesting two weeks. I think things are just chaotic enough for me to really feel like I’m home here in Vermont. Ive been lucky to find super cool people right away, and really lucked out with a great roommate so that I have been SO BUSY doing cool stuff i don’t even have time to update my silly blog!

Last week i was bed ridden for a few days with a fever and some other kind of illness. It took a while to recover but when i did i finished this:

 

I saw this while riding on the bus my last week in Grand Rapids.

Is it my best work?  No.

But it is a glimpse of home that I can keep with me.

After I recovered from my fever dreams,  i got to hang out with some pretty sweet cartoonists the rest of the weekend, including Jesse Lonergan, Jen Vaughn and some other sweet CCS students.

I love living in a town where people get together and draw on a regular basis.

 

(In case you couldn’t tell, the bottom one is mine ;) 

 

And who could not LOVE donut picnics on the yards of Dartmouth?  And no, I havent found a rich dartmouth student to fall in love with me yet… GIVE ME TIME.  For now, these guys are enough :)

The past week had its ups and downs, but all in all good.  It’s the people, here, that are making this place so great.  Im inspired to work everyday because of the encouragement and the passion im seeing from anyone else.

It makes me want to work harder.

Be better.

Share my stories.

Make something beautiful.

 

This is the drawing im hopefull going to finish today – it’s of me and Sara in our favorite corner of our favorite coffee shop in Grand Rapids
