Deadlines at work & summer plans have been kicking my ass! The only time I have to draw lately is on the post-it notes at the studio - you’d think I would have had an eraser here by now x_x

My boyfriend, Sam, always has really cool dreams that are a lot like movies (in that he’s witnessing everything instead of being a part of it).The other day he told me this super cute dream about a fictional modern earth where society across the globe was as obsessed with pro-gamer culture as they are with actresses and musicians. There was a lot of world building in his dream (like anonymity rules under the gaming federation protecting identities, and how people who break their anonymity are perceived within the federation, to the protagonist’s personality and family dynamics).
I drew his dream’s protagonist here, his game tag is snapdragon :’D I’m hoping to have more time to really visually flesh out Sam’s dream and build on it with him because all the stuff he was telling me was really cool and adorable and aaah ;-;
Also first dude OC whattup!!!

I love all the people in my life so much!! But sometimes keeping my attention focused when all my brain wants to do is shut down can be overwhelming

Mushy father’s day talk under the cut!
[[MORE]]
For the past few days I’ve been trying to figure out what to draw my dad for father’s day. I wanted to draw us going back country camping, I wanted to draw us walking around the lake in my home town, I wanted to draw him teaching me how to draw what I saw when I was a kid with my toy horses. But whenever I tried, nothing would come out right.
It’s been a difficult few years living so far away from home, I hardly get to see my parents. I’m really excited for them to move out to the coast, I’m excited to spend time with them, to go hiking and camping and go out for dinner and spend holidays together. But today, as much as I’m excited for what’s to come, I’m also very homesick. So as much as I wanted to draw what I’m excited for, I couldn’t help but feel like drawing one of the things I miss most - dad hugs. Just being around my dad and knowing he’s there.
So for father day, here’s what I wish I could give you, dad. Happy father’s day, I miss you and love you lots!
Sidenote: growing up whenever I told my dad I loved him (and now when I say I miss him), he’d respond with “I know” and I literally JUST figured out that it was a reference to Star Wars oh my god how could I have missed that?! (sidesidenote: My dad’s a big nerd like me)

I missed the day but I did it anyways! Linus can barely handle the harness for walks, I doubt he’d be happy in a dress D:

During my high school graduation, when I went on stage, my brothers both yelled out “You art-ed the HELL out of that school!”I’m not sure how university convocations work or how they feel about inopportune cheering, but I really wish I could have returned the favour at Dane’s convocation. I’m so sorry I couldn’t be there and I’m so flippin proud of him! No big deal, but he’s kind of a big deal :)
