It's all gonna break

I forgot to post this earlier in the week, but I went to Dr. Sketchy's last saturday, for the first time in a few months (busy!). The theme this time was Absinthe, or The green Fairy. It was sponsored by Le Tourment Vert, an absinthe company. Anyways, it was a fun session. I won one of the contests (incorporate Moulin Rouge or the style of Toulouse Lautrec, into your drawing) and won a bottle of absinthe.

My little sister turns 16 this week! Gah! I got her some super-fun presents and sent them to her. I found this awesome pencil case at this japanese bookstore in midtown. So darn cute! Super-cute panda stickers, an origami booklet with pretty paper, and a poo/pee notepad were also found there. I also got her a necklace with sprinkles encased in resin from a fabulous Etsy artist, Stoopidgirl And finally, I painted her some falling raindrops on a blank sketchbook pad (I'm probably going to be making some more of these for my shop).

Yesterday was the Siren Music Festival at Coney Island. A friend and I got there in the late afternoon, with enough time to catch the last three songs of Parts and Labor. D'oh. I missed These are Powers also. We both weren't too interested in any of the other bands until later that evening, so we decided to just spend the day laying out on the beach. So great! We soaked ourselves under the palm tree sprinkler (my friend braved the ocean...) and then layed on a blanket and chatted the rest of the afternoon. It felt SO nice. It was a disgustingly hot day out, but we were cool the whole time, with the nice breeze coming off the ocean. We went and listened (couldn't really see) Islands in the evening and then made our way over to the main event, Broken Social Scene. It was impossible to find a good space in the crowd to see the band, so we decided to go over on the sidelines, where you could actually see the band. Security wasn't really into people standing on the sidelines and kept telling us we had to keep walking, so we ended up with a small cluster of other people on the side of the stage, where they let us stand. It was kinda like we were backstage, ha. Amazing show; lots of my favorite songs were played, and it was hilarious to watch families coming in from a day on the beach and rocking out, even if they didn't know who they were. The little kids were the funniest, dancing all over the place. The sun really drained me and I slept amazingly well last night.

And finally, it was a blueberry pancake breakfast kind of day today. Yum!
