...Only for a moment
Ahoy Gallant Pirates,
As a gigantic fan of Peter Pan, it must come as no surprise my immense dislike for Wendy Darling. I even made one of my videos this month based on this opinion. But as usual, the incredible people of the internet have shown me that there are always two sides of an opinion. I was pointed towards the talented S. J. Tucker's delightful "The Wendy Trilogy." This made me rethink my disdain for Wendy. I'm afraid that she still doesn't rank high in my book, but I must admit she's higher than before. Green-Eyed Sued, however, well, she might be rivaling Peter Pan, himself. If you curious people have 18:51 minutes to spare, I highly recommend giving it a hearie. I would love to know your thoughts.
In a while Crocodile,

And I have Eight Photographs!
A week ago I was at the tail end of my whirlwind fall break. The first half of the week I spent hopping back and forth from Manhattan and Brooklyn for a Society of Illustrators--Chicago trip. In Manhattan, I met up with my fellow illustrators to go to The Society of Illustrators, Chris Buzelli's studio, and 3x3 studio. As a fan of illustration history, The Society of Illustrators Museum and MoMA stole my heart [1&2].
During this first half of the week I got to stay with my best friend of over five years; who I hadn't see in two years! Like I mentioned in the previous post, I had a blast. It was great to catch up and introduce him to Salvadorian pupusas [3-5]!
And finally at the end of the week, I got to take a breather by going to visit my parents in Tennessee. As a current city dweller, I always love going back to a city without public transportation and hourly police sirens. I took a lovely trip to see "Perks of Being a Wallflower" from Nashville to Atlanta with my other best friend of nearly 5 years and a new friend who's equally as wonderful. On this brief encounter with these delightful men, I got to rediscover my Holga camera and when I got back home I added another toy film camera to my ever growing collection [6-8].
Now I am back in Chicago with a new journey ahead of me leading to a craft fair and a family trip back to El Salvador for the holidays. I am thrilled about December, but we all know half the fun is getting there.
I hope you are all having a blast this autumn!
Can you smell the crisp air? I am a huge fan of seasons and Autumn is no exception. The Autumnal Equinox, however has always had a warm place in my heart because it is also the day my baby brother was born. He may be 19, but I shall forever call him my baby brother. It's only fair since he calls me his little sister due to my stature.
I spent this lovely day adventuring Brooklyn and playing with my best friend's chalkboard wall. He has a love of tigers and calls his room "The Cave." Typical guy, if you ask me, but I suppose if I had a problem with it we wouldn't be best friends
of over 5 years.
Enjoy your longer nights!
The song of the day is "All the Little Things" by Ben Cocks. it has been in my head on repeat for hours. I am absolutely in love. Have a little hear, but be prepared to wiggle and tap your dancing feet all day.
