Stages of Grief, told with scrapers

I’m in the middle of arching my second violin. I laid out my scrapers and they arranged themselves like this:

happy scraper set, arching scrapers, glue scraper

My bench neighbor looked over at me playing tangrams with my scrapers and all he had to say was: “You’re retarded.”

denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance of having to resharpen your scrapers


Happy 77th, Golden Gate Bridge

In retrospect, I’m really glad that I chose to direct all my creepy photo-collecting, drawing, stalking, and obsessing at an inanimate object, and not a classmate. Well, the latter still happened… but let’s not digress.

To anyone who tried to tell me otherwise, admiration of an inanimate object is not completely futile. This bridge gave me goals and taught me to draw! (And maybe lost me some friends? Eh, totally worth it.)

So, let’s make fun of examine some of my Golden Gate Bridge fanart of over 10 years ago!

Happy Birthday, dear bridge! The Golden Gate Bridge turns 77 in a few days. If you’re out there in San Francisco, pay it a visit for me.
