Hope you all had a great Labour Day!
Remember three months ago how I said I’d be back with blog posts with greater frequency than n > 1 month? Ha. Then medical school applications came in and they’ve, just, taken over my life. I haven’t had the chance to draw much until a few days ago, and since this is an art blog, I didn’t think that you would all want to hear me ramble on without some drawing of some sort.
But I have to tell you, without fail, when I come back to art after some time, everything I draw is rusty and terrible.
It’s still hot as blazes outside. Starbucks sent out their pumpkin spice latte promotions late August and I have very mixed feelings about this. Pre-Labour Day I would’ve been very against anything pumpkin related, but post-Labour Day, I’m … still not … sold. If I can still cook eggs on the sidewalk, do I want warm gourd drinks…?
Since last time, one of our lab members competed in an Oncology Jeopardy – she was top 3! – and the entire lab went as moral support. I made a heat map of her face and we aggressively raised the posters each time a question was asked to the contestants. Although we didn’t win, we definitely won in spirit.
On another note, I switched phone carriers and now have free Netflix so my desires of binge watching TV are finally coming true. The Crown, I’m coming for you.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, an Amazon original (!!?), is surprisingly fantastic. I avoided it for so long because I thought the A) title font was hideous, B) the title itself was Mary Poppins-esque, C) a few months ago, Amazon had that show with the man in the strange blue ant/beetle suit which served as a great repellent for any subsequent Amazon shows, until now.
Here’s a sketch-turned drawing.
Stay hydrated, you guys. Until next time.
