I really love my bathroom. It was the first thing I decorated after moving in.

So much light!

(p.s. you can find those lovely Kauai prints in Colin's Etsy shop.)

Yay. :o)

Science Geekdom

Saturday, April 11, 2009

A collector and friend of mine, Madeleine, whom I've mentioned before, sent me word of her incredibly exciting news this week. She just had her first paper published in the April issue of Nature Biotechnology!! Woooo!! Congrats, Madeleine!!

And, just for icing on an already delicious cake, they used the artwork she submitted as the cover too! Check it out:

Isn't that awesome? :oD Hooray for science geeks pursuing science!! You make the world go round!! Well, okay, you help explain how and why it does, but that's incredibly important!!



Adventures in Sushi

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

So we went to Gen Kai again last weekend. :o) It started out simple enough.

But when you order Omakase, you never know what will happen. This would be mackerel sashimi:

Honestly, it was some of the best sashimi I've ever had. And what a [mildly alarming] presentation!

Here's Colin eating the fish head, after it was sent to the kitchen to be deep fried.
(P.S. I ate a fish eyeball. Yep.)

Sashimi Roll:

Then... Jun-san brought out the squid. The whole squid. A whole squid, I tell you:

I hadn't eaten a whole squid before. It was... squid-like. I also hadn't tried salmon roe either! (the orange stuff.) It's like inflated, balloon-like caviar.

And that's my story.

I know, they look familiar.

I did my initial sketches for Nami in ACEO size, because... why not? Then I'd have more ACEOs.

I actually have another (similar) one that isn't finished yet. Same concept, but orange and pink. :o)

Both are in my shop.
