VERY accurate. Man, look at that sweet MALACHITE and FLOURITE and QUARTZ (just showing off my new rock learnin’)

tchurn and I had a BIG day of drawing at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History yesterday. It was SO much fun. I wanted to do some geology/gems research for Myst and that museum has a damn good geology/gems exhibit. First we walked through the geology section and took notes. Then we did a slow pass through the gems/minerals area where I did most of these drawings. We looked at EVERYTHING, or almost everything. I love that place.

Then we rested our feet by plopping down in the main foyer, which was full of gorgeous neoclassical architecture goodies.

tchurn and I made a book! We wrote and illustrated a book for his niece. It’s a book full of lots of fun under the sun! Get your copy today! All of the proceeds from the book go towards a college fund for his niece.
I also brushed up on my sewing knowledge and made a toy of Zoey’s dear friend Crab. We spent about a year on and off on our free time making it, I’m so happy to finally see the book in print and in the hands of little Zoey :)

My friends Hannah and Todd made a book! They worked really hard on it and it&#8217;s super adorable. And they did it for Todd&#8217;s niece, which is just the sweetest thing.
