cabin fever

I've been a bit of a hermit lately, ever since my Turkish class ended, and I had a migraine that turned me into a cranky vegetable for a few days. Today I'm back on my feet and thought I might get out and visit a museum or two, even though it's raining. The sky is fantastically dark, and it seems as though the entire city is painted in greys. I love walking in warm summer rain.

I've also been trying to tie up some loose ends here before my trip to San Francisco next week, which I am incredibly excited about. I have missed dear SF, and can't wait to see my friends and hang out in old haunts— I've been craving a burrito ever since I left in December. I'll have my camera and plenty of net access so I'll be taking you on a little tour of my City by the Bay.

In the meantime, here are some sketches I did last week. The last one was drawn in Istinye Park Sinemasi while watching Public Enemies, which I really enjoyed— especially for the costumes and cars. Oh! And I was thrilled to hear two Otis Taylor songs prominently featured throughout the film.

I absolutely love how you use the tertiary color without the primary or secondary colors... Brilliant! it provides bounce and sets a mood while framing the focal points. I truly admire how beautifully simple you are able to capture the moment. thanks,
