Portrait for The Pearl

A portrait of Jenny Ohrstrom, SUA class of 2008, for the upcoming Pearl Memorial Edition! We're nearly there but man oh man it's getting rough. I've been struggling with recurring vertigo these past four, five days, making it very hard to work on anything... let alone draw on computer. Alas, the show must go on (but with periodic breaks on Netflix, now).

My addictions

So my class is making a fancy scrapbook to preserve our memories etc. on a tangible object and every senior was asked to submit one original page. The criteria was pretty loose. Stuff like how you'd want to be remembered and reflecting on good times and all that. Stuff that describes you. I basically saw this as an excuse to mash together all the loves of my life these past four years, from Angry Birds to llamas. So here's what I made:

Probably the rest of my classmates are gonna have pages full of photos with friends and inside jokes and all. Look how much of my limited social life made it to this page. Zero. lol Well, maybe YouTube.

(500) days with Tom paper doll and What I wore

Well, after I left you with the previous post last night, I had this sudden urge to want to draw Tom Hansen from (500) Days of Summer, and as I was beginning to draw I thought hey why don't I make this into a paper doll so I can have my own Tom in my life (no, my obsessive-compulsion for fictional male characters will never leave me--that was established a decade ago when I encountered Harry Potter). So this is what I got:

Feel free to full-size view and print if you're inclined.

I admit, this was a lot of fun and I'm thinking I may make another one with "The Dude" from The Big Lebowski when I feel bored and negligent of my many other tasks. lol TBA.

Anyway, what I wore today:

I'm hitting the sack early tonight--for certain this time!

April Fool'd

I hope you all had an entertaining April Fools! I got pranked by my Symbolic Logic professor this morning when I got seated in class and he distributed a pop-quiz with ridiculously difficult deduction problems that we hadn't even learned about yet. It was only after I began trying to solve the first problem that I realized it was a prank. 

I also liked what they did to Hulu, as well as the 1911 YouTube logo, and the elaborate prank with the Google Gmail Motion BETA promotion in which they supposedly created a new type of system where people could compose e-mails through body motion captured by a webcam. I responded to that prank by making this video using their map of shortcut body gestures to compose an e-mail.

Anyway, fun day! Here's what I wore:

What I wore, chocolates and flour

Today was So Cal's warmest so far in 2011 and it was absolutely spectacular. Brilliant sunshine, warm breezes, joyful birds and... the biggest package from home containing 11 boxes of my favorite mushroom shaped chocolate snacks!! If this couldn't be awesome enough, my mom went ahead and caked the whole package with limited edition One Piece postage stamps!! See for yourself!!

LOL And so I was thrilled. I guess the images are self explanatory. 
So here's what I wore on this fine spring day!

Also, I enjoyed this evening listening to a benefit concert-ish performance of three Hawaiian guitarists. It was actually the first sound test rehearsal that was held in the brand new Performing Arts Center at our Soka University, and after the earthquake happened in Japan, the organizers decided to make it public and send all the profits to the earthquake/tsunami relief. So that was really enjoyable and the acoustics were great! These mellow middle-aged men brought the shores and plumerias with them in their cheerful Hawaiian melodies. c:

Finally, I wanted to share that I totally enjoyed Stranger Than Fiction the other day! Gosh, it was so awesome. I couldn't get over the witty narrative, the colorful and dynamic assortment of personalities, the clean, futuristic computer graphics, the delicious soundtrack and the overall creativity of the plot that kept me captivated from start to finish. I absolutely loved Emma Thompson's acting, and Will Ferrell wasn't bad at all for a change. I loved Dustin Hoffman's lit professor role as well. Gosh, what a fun movie! I need to go watch it again--I have a feeling the second time around will reveal even greater details!

Anyway, I drew this based off the relationship between Ana and Herald from one of the best scenes out of the entire movie:

That's it now. Hope all of you make the best of your April Fools!
