Slow Migration

May 7, 2012 § 1 Comment

Blogspot seemed a lot easier to work with so I decided to move our ugliest bird on over, but I was thwarted by someone having taken the name already! I suppose I have been doing more things lately than drawing ugly birds anyway😦

At any rate, I am slowly moving myself to Turning Into Gold. Posts have been successfully imported, now it’s a matter of slowly transferring everything else! Ugly Bird will stay up until I figure blogger out.

Passing time in Union Station
I went to the opening event for “The Painting Factory: Abstraction After Warhol” at MOCA Grand. The show was really impressive which is great! I wasn’t sure what to expect since I’m not actually a huge fan of Warhol, but some of the pieces in this show are so fantastic!

While I was there, I took some snapshots of the Rothko paintings in the permanent collection since I had failed to do so in all of my previous visits

Best recent thing of all, my review panel passed my portfolio! This is my happiest, mascara smeary, tears of joy forever and ever face!

A little bit here & a little bit there. Filling it in slow slow slow so it grows & grows & grows.

If I could wish for anything, it would definitely be more time to work on my personal projects. Until then, I’ll just stay up really late sometimes embroidering until my fingers ache. This is going to take some time!

FOOD! & Flowers I guess too

So now I would like to share some snapshots from Pike Place Market. It was actually kind of depressing because I wanted to buy so much of the yummy produce & the tasty looking fish but it would have been so impractical. & they had all these really wonderful, super bright flowers that again, I wanted to keep, but could not! Augh! But first I will show you this picture of what I ate before going to the market at Citizen Coffee. Fantastic name, fantastic coffee. & isn’t it nice when someone draws a heart in your latte? I think so. Hearts all the time! None of that leafy nonsense!

So I guess that is the first Starbucks. I did not actually go in because I’m not that into Starbucks & it was incredibly crowded. This banjo guy was quite talented though!

So that’s it from there! I hope this isn’t too boring. There will be otters & dinosaurs & a troll in the near future!

Space Needle

I really like the Space Needle in the way that you have to like over the top, touristy, sensationalist things that were created for World’s Fairs of the past. It is exactly what I was expecting it to be, an odd structure that sang to my sci-fi loving heart. The thing that I was not expecting was an angry bird attached to it & I’m still not entirely sure what that’s about, but I’ve never really been into that game (Triple Town & Very Hungry Cat are my iPhone favorites if you wanted to know). Anyway, I paid the ridiculous $19 admission to go to the top of the needle & it was pretty neat! I also bought many a postcard for some of my favorite friends (& my parents, duh!) back home!
