Postcard from Newfoundland

I made this drawing last year at this time, for Newfoundland when I went there (8 months pregnant and all..) In person, it is indeed that full of colorful houses, but the water is a little more purply & scary.

Hungarian Donuts

On a recent trip to Budapest, I was taken with the arts & crafts styles of Hungarian dresses, pillows, and other felt things. So I drew some Central European inspired donuts.

Self portrait in 10 lines or under

A quick self-portrait in as few lines as I could — I even sacrificed my eyebrows for brevity. It’s a nice challenge, I encourage you to do the same!

I managed to make it one mile, from Stanford’s student union down to El Camino, without one pedal. It was slow & wonderful!

Baby Pants in Turkey vs USA

I’ve observed a major difference in baby dressing from the US to Turkey — Turkish babies have their little pants hiked up halfway up their chest. US babies wear them slung low, barely covering their butt. The Turkish ones look
