A Yak For Every Occasion

This little blogpost is dedicated to my boyfriend Robert who turns 24 today. He's in New York right now, so quite why  I decided on a Tibetan (I think) yak is a bit of a mystery. It probably has something to do with the fact that turning 24 is something myself nor Rob really want to do ..for some reason 24 feels..old..Although the idea of old oxes and yaks seems like a positive thing. I mean they're stubborn, but they age well and seem like knowledgeable things.
Anyways Happy Birthday Robert!


the birthday yak


This seems like a good time to let you guys know that I will be going out to America myself next month and will be backpacking from New Orleans, Louisiana to Portland, Oregon over two months. And then will be setting up camp in San Jose....Costa Rica..for three months. That's the plan! I'm going to be keeping sketchbooks for the entire trip (and making zines of my travels) and in Costa Rica will have the chance to really give commercial illustration a shot (ie, i will not be working). I'm also hoping to gain some good influences an ideas for a new body of work and I will share the beginning of it with you tomorrow.
