My Week in Sketches7:26 AM
An illustrated look at my fun Thanksgiving week:
One highlight of Thanksgiving day was playing Crazy Eights with my mom, aunt, and cousin's daughter. Dad was the official shuffler.
The next day, I met up with my friends at a lake house for the weekend. This house happens to have an elevator, which was of course a big hit with the 4 and 6 year old.
My friends and I played games all evening, and one game had different rounds where you had to use words or charades to get your team to guess a word or phrase. We were getting so good at it, we decided to have a round where we used only eye contact, and it was amazing. We did so much better than I would have thought possible.
(Oh, and we wrote the words/phrases ourselves, which is how things like "Ryan's Mustache" made it into the mix...)
Out on a boat on the lake, the boys kept "falling" into the water on purpose.
Then it was back to my parents' house for one more day. My dad discovered the "Dog Channel" on TV, which is actually a channel designed for dogs to watch. So it's shots of dogs running through fields and sniffing trees and stuff. I drew myself looking rather indifferent to it in my sketch, but in reality I couldn't look away and was a little disappointed when my dad eventually changed the channel.
I got a haircut, and since it was later in the evening, there was no one else in the studio. It was just funny because I'm normally super-quiet when I get my hair cut and there are lots of people around, but this time I practically told my hairstylist my life story (and maybe the Hunger Games story, too...)
At work, I had my annual performance review with my boss...at the seedy Mexican restaurant up the road. It was funny trying to do anything professional in such a tacky atmosphere.
