I sort of just PWNED at poker and palomas.
Are you up? What are you doing?
“how to draw monster from where the wild things are”
“my 5 year old draws me out in his pictures”
Thank you, Google Analytics.
My resurrected computer died AGAIN. FOREVER. This isn’t funny anymore. I’ll do my best to keep drawing and posting, though! Bear with me. ♥
so i’m on tumblr while my five-year-old brother sits on my desk and practices writing letters. and there was an illustration of Where The Wild Things Are and as i scroll right past it he goes, “WAIT CHRISTEL, CHRISTEL GO BACK! GO BACK CHRISTEL.” so i go back to the picture and i say, “this?” and he goes, “YEAH CHRISTEL. I WAS READING THAT BOOK AT MY SCHOOL, CHRISTEL. I WAS READING THAT BOOK AT MY SCHOOL. WITH THE WILD THINGS.” and i was like, “…really?!” and he goes into this lengthy summary like,
“YEAH CHRISTEL. THE BOY, THE BOY HE WAS WEARING A COSTUME. AND HE WAS BEING BAD. AND HIS MOMMY PUT HIM IN TIME OUT. YEAH, CHRISTEL. SO HE GOES TO TIME OUT IN HIS ROOM, AND HE GOES AWAY ON A BOAT. CHRISTEL, THE BOY GOES AWAY ON A BOAT. AND HE GOES AND THERE ARE THE MONSTERS. THE WILD THINGS, CHRISTEL. AND THEY PLAY, CHRISTEL. CHRISTEL THEY PLAY. AND HE GETS SAD. THE BOY GETS SAD, CHRISTEL. SO HE GOES BACK ON THE BOAT AND HE GOES HOME. AND WHEN HE GOES HOME HE HAS SOUP! CHRISTEL, THE BOY HAS SOUP! THE SOUP WAS IN HIS ROOM. I LIKE THAT BOOK, CHRISTEL. I LIKE THAT BOOK.”
then gives me like the biggest hug ever and asks me to help him write some more.
This was SO FUNNY and is exactly how 5 year olds are. Cracked me up.
Gabby’s Portfolio now has a new theme! Don’t get me wrong, I like my hasaportfolio theme. I just get bored once in a while, know what I mean?
…the first day of school! I’m excited. I’m a teacher. I wonder if all my teachers were excited when school started? I miss my little munchkins.
Big Fat Edit
Thank you all for your input. I’ve found another theme that a) keeps all my posts in one column, b) still shows who I’m following, c) and is tidy!
Remember when I said I was growing out my hair? Yeah, well I cut it all off today. Oops. I’m allowed at least one false start, right?
In answer to your question, shutlow, I don’t know! Medusa Jelly was supposed to be prettier or something… It’s the girl at the bottom I don’t like. I meant to make something more delicate, but I used too heavy a hand.
Why would you do that? That really wasn’t nice.
Occasionally I get bummed because some of my favorite artists around here don’t post very frequently. Then I go browse their pages for the millionth time and remember that the reason I follow most of them in the first place is because they post quality over quantity, especially those that post mostly original work. And then I’m not bummed anymore; although that doesn’t mean I can’t wait to see more. So go make stuff already, guys!
