Montana, seriously, I love you.When I got back, invigorated by the natural healing water that’s pumped in from Yellowstone, and overcome with euphoria — I opened a suspicious file in my backup drive. A swim in steaming purified spring water followed closely with the blinding bliss caused by a Snuggie, Tracy Champman and a toasted Idaho Spud can do that to you – make you crazy enough to open a folder labeled: ‘Scans_Fall 2001’ Apparently I used to draw in my teens too. Looking at the vast majority of these old bits of me, several themes are evident. Still going through velvet-poster-collection detox – unicorns were big. Real big.
This one actually got a chuckle from me. This is a portrait of my ex-boyfriend, Adam. He’s usually referred to by my friends as “That tag artist that was obsessed with ‘The Real World?'” Embarrassingly enough, It’s an accurate description. This effect was accomplished with sharpie on napkin after a particularly loving moment in which Adam brought me a flower. It actually captures him pretty well. Luckily, my tastes have changed post apocalyptic straight-edge punk.
