·                        "There is a wisdom that is woe; but there is a woe that is madness. And there is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces. And even if he for ever flies within the gorge, that gorge is in the mountains; so that even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar." 
- Moby Dick, Herman Melville

Short Sleeves & High Fashion

Alexander McQueen

Chanel Couture; 

Jil Sander;

(both images) Christian Dior;

Short sleeves are in & I am loving it!
Not only are they becoming on almost all body types,
but I find they create a nice line for the eye to follow when looking at a dress.


par moi
So to explain a little; this is not what I was planning on uploading today....
but there is a crazy snow storm & I am not heading back to work to scan the drawing I was planning on (maybe on Monday)
Just a little fashion design sketch from my head

More art soon to come

found: [link]
So I am in dire need to re-tune my art skills.
If you look in my art book from two years ago my art was a kabillion times better.
I guess thats what happens when you get a boring desk job in an office with two other people
aka: you can't doodle all day because it looks bad & like you are not working!
Never fear I am going to start trying to produce one piece of art every day from now on.
I will load my best/most interesting drawings on Mondays and Thursdays.
The only bending of this rule is if I am working on a art project & take some time to work on it each day. Wish me luck.

Walk in the Woods

par moi:

So I walk to work every morning.
Not because I suffer from a crazy eco-conscience (though I often do),
nor is it the fact that I don't have a car;
it is based on the simple fact that it is about a two min. jaunt through the woods.
The woods however are full of snow right now.
On the plus side it is very pretty/fairy tale esque/fun!
On the down side, the woods full of snow but so are my boots by the time I get to work!
on another note:
If you have never seen light catch thousands of crystals sparkling in a snow bank, I truly feel sorry for you.

hit the slopes this past weekend

So this past weekend I was out of town on business.
I decided to look up my cousin who is studying in the city I was visiting to see if he wanted to hit the slopes with me. He is an avid snowboarder but doesn't have a car to get to the hill so he was looking forward to it.
Long story short; the hill was packed, way too many people on too few runs & BAM he ran into someone!
Long story short; lady he hit was in pain, lady he hit was ok, Ski hill patrol lady said she was taking my cousins ski pass away.
Long story short; it was completely an accident, my cousin could have left the scene but stayed behind because he is a decent guy, in turn he was punished as an indirect result of being responsible.
Long story short stupid ski hill!!
kinda put a damper on the day.
Luckily my cousin is a decent guy (as stated before) & didn't get too down or upset.

"Such a Young Thing"

Why was I such an old young person, & now I am such a young old person !?

Learning to cook:

One of my New Years resolutions is to cook more & become more adept at cooking.

Hopefully I will come up with some meals impressive enough to post to the internet.

I've Been Framed

& yes you may have guessed it was done by Dolce & Gabbana
Never have worn glasses before
so it will take some getting used to.

I remember the first time I saw this image very well.
It was a very long time ago, it was in an article in National Geographic of all places.

My cheeks are flush,
my toes are cold
I see the ice,
It shines like gold
