I'm going to stop cross-posting these here, and just finish the rest of the month of photos at my public blog (http://www.doodlefactory.blogspot.com)

August Break: Day 1 / "Vet Staff"

I x-posted this to my FB, Flickr & blogspot blog, so apologies if you've already seen this ad nauseum.



I'm participating in Susannah Conway's August Break. The goal is to post a photo (or more) every day this month. Simple! Let's see how it goes.

Today's photo comes from the vet office where I had to take Toby in for some sniffle-cures. While I was in the waiting room, I was dying to take a photo of the on-staff counter kitty - a big, white, grumpy-looking Persian. I hesitated for a minute since I was in a place of business, but fired off two quick shots when the cat stood up and proceeded to sneeze enthusiastically all over the counter and the clipboard he was sitting on. It was pretty funny.

Last Shift

Trouble napped clockwise around our apartment, following the path of the sun as it moved through different windows. Never saw him move once, but he never let the shade touch him all day. Some day I'd like to career change into Cat.

DoodleFactory Birthday

Lately, I've been working on a bunch of design projects and a few illustration thing-a-majigs. Here's one of the more fun projects I completed in recent history.

Crissy Page of dearcrissy.com hired me to custom-design the invites, cake topper and cupcake buttons for her son's first birthday! I've borrowed a few of her photos of the final pieces below, but you can see the entire photoset set and write-up of the big day on her blog.

Lunchtime Experiments

Had to forage in the fridge for something to eat for lunch today because I cannot stomach another cold-cut sandwich. I suspect a smoothie binge coming up after today's successful blend. I just worked with what we had in the fridge, which wasn't much. Back when I had an office job, I saw a woman in the kitchen with a glass full of tantalizingly green liquid. I asked her what it was and she said it was a Spinach Smoothie. I wrinkled my nose, assuming a veggie smoothie would be gross, but she assured me that mixing it with pineapple juice made it so sweet, it even passed the 5-year old taste test.

It's been months, but I finally got a chance to make my own spinach smoothie. I didn't have any pineapple juice, but I did have an opened can of Rockstar, and a pear that was going to go bad if I didn't do something with it soon. I garnished it with a couple of frozen strawberries and some basil from my "garden" for photographic purposes only.

Who else likes that cute song from the new kindle commercial?

Just found out you can download it for free on amazon.

(right): $12.99 Robot necklace my boyfriend bought for me in Little Tokyo to soften the blow of losing my job. He also bought me flowers, red velvet cupcakes and a pretty new bicycle.

One of M's friends posted this photo on facebook. I've never seen it before, but it's an iconic image from 50's photographer Ormond Gigli shot in an abandoned brownstone. Wow.
