here are some doodles that i did in the middle of july. three are in pen, and the rest are in pretty crummy mechanical pencil. the majority of them are from a three day period of time where i was working as a temporary receptionist for a photographer who was shooting school pictures.

(the one above is unfinished)

(i didn't really like the one above that much so i didn't bother finishing it either.)

this is a picture of a polar bear that i made for chris upon his request:

this is a portrait of ryan gosling that i made for jessee:

i was riding in the passenger seat during a car wreck about ten days ago. considering previous experiences, i think you can say it's become a summer tradition of mine. needless to say, i'm very much an emotional wreck right now. i gave up on my diary in the middle of june, and this is the only place left where i document my emotions, so i just thought i'd make a note of it. if there any kind souls who feel like exchanging letters with me, i'd love to talk to someone whom i don't live within a fifty mile radius of. i'm trying to avoid the feelings that come after seeing pairs of disappointed eyes looking at me that belong to people i have to be in the same rooms with on a regular basis.


  1. if i didn't live in australia, i would definitely take you up on the pen pal offer. I hope very much that things right themselves for you very soon anna, you deserve such complete and utter happiness.

  2. You have very lovely drawings. I kinda know what you mean. I'm sick of people being disappointed in me and sick of being disappointed with myself. Summer always makes me want to run away.
