cold weather uniform

(x-posted to my tumblr)
favorite navy beany from the gas station, softest oatmeal sweater, dark blue sneakers, pink wallet by rennes, black leather purse, very old ray bans, and honey sticks to soothe the throat.

awhile ago we drew some things

graham and i made little comics together. we weren't allowed more than 3-4 minutes a "panel" and it was a lot of fun. i drew the feisty pizza mouse and graham drew the refined indoor mouse.
then i drew first person perspective and he did ghost perspective.
he's a cartoonist so he's a total pro. i am not a pro, but i love drawing with him because he is very funny.

little things on my desk

i made little silhouette portraits of my parents. they, along with my brothers, live very far away and i miss them a lot. it sits on my desk now so they feel a bit closer.

suh suh studiooo

already posted on my tumblr (of which i have been using more and more, sorry blog), but i wanted to share my little studio in progress:

we are putting it to good use! this studio is the first room i have never had to share with anyone in my entire life. it is truly all my own  and i thought that the first thing i’d want to do is close the door and be alone and quiet, but the complete opposite happened. all i want to do is share it, to have company and tea at all times in it. i keep the door open.

i am very sad to hear about the passing of dylan williams, the man behind sparkplug comics. i did not know dylan very well, but i knew him well enough to know he was very kind, supportive and hilarious, and it's truly heartbreaking that he's gone. he has touched many lives and will be dearly missed. there have been several fundraisers around town to help pay his medical bills, and i am sure to continue supporting and buying awesome comics from sparkplug will help his family during this very sad time.

swamp feelings

graham, julianna and myself are in a show together with brand new work at ponyclub (in portland) on july 7th. we're still working hard on it, but wanted to let people know so you can mark your calenders. i love our collaboration show card!

some are thoughts/summer thoughts

it's finally hot in portland!!! and because of this, i felt painting lots of swans and water (for an upcoming show in july) would make me feel calmer/cooler. hmm, it's fun but i think an air conditioner might be better.
 this is just a tiny part of a very large painting that is driving me insane. i am enjoying making it so far.
also,
decided to cut my hair short again.
beat earthbound. finally.
watched the biggest peony bloom.
june june june!

the pleasure of being robbed and the sorrow of being allergic to penicillin

quite recently i have found out that among the impressive quantity of medicine i am required to take, i am allergic to penicillin. terrible feelings. anywho while ignoring said terrible feelings, i watched a very lovely movie called "the pleasure of being robbed". it is very quiet and beautiful, has a wandering plot (i like wandering plot movies), has very great music and is the most perfect sick in bed/rainy day movie to watch in the history of ever. i took film stills because, well, graham just taught me how and why not.








i loved it.

quiet spiderish

i love this song very much. maybe even more than i love documentaries about shakers and the civil war.

fixing holes, getting stuff done, limited prints, saying hello


i've been fixing up an old quilt lately and it's been occupying a lot of my time. i have also been eating a lot of honydew melon and super amazing homemade tacos. i'll post the recipe for the "dirty rice" in a little bit at the bottom of this post. the trick is using aardvark hot sauce on the tacos, as it happens to be the best hot sauce in the universe. i do wish they made a milder version though so my loved ones (brothers aside, who could probably breathe fire at this point) can enjoy it too. i have later'd my tastebuds with my love of spicy things over the years so it doesn't effect me like other people. when i was a kid growing up i ate straight up chili powder. any mexican kids on here remember "lucas chili/limon powder" before it was banned by the FDA god help me, or those mango lollipops encrusted with hot powder? also there were years there where i would dump tapatio and lime juice on all my watermelon. yeah. sorry tastebuds.
anyway, i have been drawing a lot, and then i will be painting for an upcoming show in july.
by the way, i have some limited edition prints available at the hungry eyeball shop! you can get them here (quietly guiding me), here (demon hands), and here (wicked mountain).
the prints really turned out great and i am stoked!
now i am going to go back to lots of work and watching a lot of ghost shows that make me sleep with the light on.
DIRTY RICE
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 heaping tablespoon fresh thyme
1/2 medium-large yellow onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups rice (i use brown rice)
3 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 can of black beans
1 lime
in a large pan or pot, pour in olive oil, cumin, thyme, and onion. saute for about 4 minutes on medium/high flame. pour in rice and stir around for about 30 seconds or so. pour in 3 cups of chicken broth and turn the flame down to medium. let simmer until the rice is soft and fluffy, this takes about 25-30 minutes or so and supervision every 8-10 minutes. when the rice is almost done, pour in can of black beans and stir around. let it simmer for a little bit more on a low flame for a few minutes.
when the rice is done squeeze a little lime on it, sprinkle a little salt, and serve.

getting there.

i've been a little traveling person the past few weeks. most of the traveling was sadly for a memorial service, but it was still a great time. it's often very for long stretches when i can't see my family. in another few i'll be on the road again. i'm probably getting another (but much smaller/less serious this time) operation in about a month or so. i am seriously so ready to be 100%. i never want to see a bed again, and when i AM 100% i will spend all my nights sleeping on our roof with the squirrels and the trees.
what else? i am in art shows! one very soon at grasshut here in portland, the show is about light. i am working super hard on making new things and projects and little books. i will write more about it when my paintings are done and after i answer my overflowing email. so soon!
 love, rebecca

our room smells like hyacinth. i don't think i will ever get tired of it, it's pure springtime and that's that!
i got a little charm to wear on pink wool thread and a nancy sinatra LP.

i drew things i was thinking/dreaming about
i have been having a lot of worried thoughts lately, but also a lot of hopeful ones too.

i swear i am going to get better about talking about all the neat things i am doing. it's a lady group show at guapo comics. it will be up for about a month or so. sadly i am not able to go to the opening because i am sick again. ugh. BLERG. on the bright side graham and i are going to draw comics together, drink hot tea and be cozy.
