The waiting room of urgent care. I smashed my hand…
This blog started off as travel writing. Despite me not posting a lot of sketches, I’ve been traveling a ton over the last year. My kiddo flew with me on eight airplanes before his first birthday. This is a drawing of some elderly passengers on a Southwest flight waiting for boarding. I liked the series of strong colors of them all sitting in a row in the airline-provided wheelchairs.
On the same hike, I started scoping out some local blooming flowers for a mural for my downstairs bathroom. For a little context, the bathroom is small, under the stairs and ugly. When we bought our house last January, there was even a mirror covering the ceiling (so you can watch yourself pee, I guess?) Anyways, I’ve done what I could with the space. I doubt I’ll ever really consider the mural done but at least its colorful now, and painted to look like a meadow.
At the Science Writers party at the AAAS meeting, last week, Melissae and I made small creatures. There was a ‘Make a Robot’ station at the San Jose Museum of Art (http://sjmusart.org/exhibition/koret-family-gallery-maker-space) where the party was held. You could choose a little packet of random supplies and then were challenged to make some sort of creature with only those materials. I made a little robot, she made a little bug. It was fun.
Other friends did other science art baby related craft projects. Melissae (http://www.melissaefellet.com/), a science writer friend, knitted a DNA double helix toy with squeaks, rattles and chews built in.
