2012 was the bomb dot com. I didn't remember the beginning of the year until I went on a photographic journey with Matt Benyo. I did some rock climbing. My hair changed a lot this year. I got two tattoos. I celebrated my 25th birthday Golden style in New York City, made a YOLO list, went to SLEEP NO MORE, and met Nick Jonas. I saw One Direction. I met Cher Lloyd. This summer was a blur of fun and adventures with my best friend in the whole wide world. Successfully baked cupcakes for him and surprised him for his birthday. Met Larry Bruner who sent us to Europe to fulfill our dreams. Ate lots of Slow's. Met Jeremy Sumpter. Flew first class and back to Europe. Stayed with Cloe in France and put a lock on the infamous lock bridge. Surprised Kory Kalnasy in Italy. Became an aunt. Started hanging out with people I hadn't seen in awhile. Went to New York again and won tickets in the Wicked lottery which got us in the front row for $30. Voted for the first time in my life and spent the holidays with Matt Benyo and his family. Life rules.

Big Rabbit.

I have an obsession with the children's book Big Rabbit's Bad Mood by Ramona Badescu and illustrated by Delphine Durand. It's about this Big Rabbit that develops a bad mood after he calls his friends and they kind of give him the brush off and he gets paranoid and thinks WELL MAYBE THEY'RE HAVING A PARTY WITHOUT ME. YES. THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE DOING AND THEY ARE PROBABLY EATING COOKIES. Then his Bad Mood follows him and it's this monster thing and it is a great book. My boss calls me Big Rabbit (because Matt Benyo originally called me Big Rabbit anytime I'd get into a mood over something minuscule) and so now it's this ongoing thing at work and it rules.
For Christmas, I got crafty and magicianed a Big Rabbit out of some paper SOMEHOW. Matt Benyo asked me, "How do you know how to do that?" I told him I didn't and I just hoped it would turn out great and it turned out good enough to give. Neil opened it today and LOVEDDDD IT. Mission accomplished. Here is my little Big Rabbit for Neil because he's my favorite boss ever.
By the way, Matt Benyo drew this skull girl. I want to break his knee caps, but he knows I love and support his artistic endeavors endlessly. He inspires me to want to draw again. I'm gonna draw that too.

Marilyn Monroe.

I drew this with Crayola markers using a grid method. I love Andy Warhol. He's my favorite artist. His flat, graphic work has inspired my own. This is an ode to Andy.
