Halloween was a success! Here are the pumpkins Matt Benyo and I carved. I did the first two (well, Jack was kind of a collaboration); he did the last two. My favorite was the Nosferatu I made. For Halloween, I painted my costume and went Trick Or Treating with a Panda and Bob Simms from Halloween. Bob got pudding; we did not. I got a lot of Whoppers (worst candy ever), but faired well overall. Who says you're too old to go Trick Or Treating? Naysayers; that's who. I hope everyone had a great Halloween; we did! Now to watch The Are You Afraid of the Dark movie: The Silver Sight! [Hipster Photo Cred: Matt Benyo]

Whip It.

I know I'm 2 years late, but I saw Whip It (thanks Shelb). It was decent. I haven't drawn in a long time. I've had no motivation or inspiration to do so. I must be having a dry spell, but I was excited after I finished this drawing. It gave me hope; I haven't completely lost my touch. Ellen Page: pencil & acrylic.

Tattoo #3!

WELL FRIENDS, I got my first HARRY POTTER TATTOO! I had planned on getting this on September 1st aka when Harry departs from Kings Cross, BUT at that time, Matt Benyo and I decided we would cover my arm with Henna and it turns out you can't tattoo over Henna so that was a sad day for me. I got the chapter stars from the book on my wrist. I love them! One of the stars hurt like whoa, but I got through it no prob. It was basically a tattoo party; Shelby got a fish and Sarah got a cat. I present my newest addition. This photo was taken by the lovely Shaya White.

Photo Party.

I went to Briarwood Mall with my friend Justin to turn his computer in at the Apple Store. Little sister, Shelby, accompanied us. Upon entering the mall, I went to Abercrombie and sprayed Fierce all over which was a mistake because eventually the smell made me nauseous and that wasn't too Fierce. Then we were stuck in the Apple Store for a good hour and a half. Here is a fun photo of us. I don't like how my hair is always a ball of light in photos. Shelby and I almost look related:I remembered that after Matt Benyo, Nathan Bou, and I pulled our Harry Potter marathon and went to see it at the IMAX, we took photos! I like that I remembered it a month and a half later. Nate sent them to me like an angel. Look at me in my Muggle shirt. My hair looks nice. I only just remembered that it was styled for me by Matt Benyo after he ruined it by pouring water on my head. GOOD TIMES. Not.

Michael Jackson.

I finally did some art after not doing any forever. I made this Michael Jackson card for my friend, Kim Raley. It was her birthday and this is a mixed media cut out.Then after the soiree at Kim Raley's, all of us cool kids went Halloween costume shopping and a lot of people have been telling me to dye my hair brown so I tried on a brown wig. I'm not sure if I should make the transition or not. Here is also a photo of me with an in-store hipster mannequin and me wearing a Teal Lady Gaga wig. Both photos taken with a hipster's HIPSTAMATIC app on their iphone.

Northern Nos.

Friday REAL STEEL came out. You saw my head 4 times! I went Up North over the weekend with my frands. I got to kick back and stargaze. We watched Scream 4 and had a scare fest. It was funny because I got the girls to scare Matt with a Jason mask and Matt got Nate to scare me with a Michael Myers mask. GREAT MINDS. I posted that blog entry about not being scared for this month and it took less than a week for that to go out the window. The following day Matt Benyo threw me in the river and I was in a right foul mood. Don't let these photos fool you; I was the opposite of what I look like. That last one is from today with Shelby.I went to Briarwood Mall today with my friend Justin to get his computer checked out and we ran into two Sarah's we knew. I also tried Pinkberry for the first time and it was like a party in my mouth. While Jamba Juice reigns supreme on the smoothie front, Pinkberry takes the cake for frozen yogurt; HANDS DOWN. Here is a picture I drew on the ipad2. It's NOSFERATU. Tis the season!

The 50's.

This drawing is based off of a photo of two teachers I found in my grandpa's high school yearbook from 1956. It's weird looking at the seniors in his yearbook. They don't look like seniors today; they look much older. I can only imagine what the 50's must've been like. I always say that if I could go back in time, that's where I'd go, but I have this idealized version of the 1950's and it's probably not what it was like at all. Chuck Palahniuk said, "What you don't understand you can make mean anything."

Last night, I went to Detroit to party. I hit up CIRCA for old times sake and got my usual half pitcher of coke. We then headed to the dorms and ended up in my friend Max's room and the room filled up quickly. I met some new faces; saw some old ones. It was a good time. Here's a self indulgent photo of myself while my friends smoked and look at this second one where I try to show off the purple in my bangs & look like a 5 year old. This is my new jacket from Target. It's not real leather, but it's the closest thing I could find to what I wanted because I've been on a hunt for ages. One by one, someone would leave to sleep and by 6 am, only 4 remained so I left. Next time I need a group shot. On the real, I need to do art instead of filler posts.

Hanging With Hugh.

So, Nate informed me that Hugh Jackman was on Regis & Kelly this morning, but I don't have a TV so we skyped, he put it on, and we watched it together. Total coincidence that Nate was wearing an Aussie shirt and that I just so happened to snap the group photo when Hugh was giving Nate that look! REAL STEEL. Friday!

TIS THE SEASON! I thought it would be a great idea to watch Halloween solo dolo in the middle of the night; it wasn't. After last year's traumatic events, I can't watch this movie without the ghost of my past haunting me. This year, however, I'm putting my foot down. No Michael Myers impostors will get me. As a matter of fact, I will be on my guard the whole month of October so friends, bring your worst. I'll be ready.
