So what do you do when Christmas is right around the corner and you have absolutely no idea what to get for your girlfriend because she has the same ridiculous and intangible tastes and hobbies that you yourself have? You remember that at one point you were trained as a scientific illustrator, and that she has a rather intense obsession with Dodo Bird skeletons. Then you get out an 18” x 24” piece of bristol board and a medium you are not particularly familiar with (acrylic ink) and lose your mind in detail for two weeks that’s end result is one of the best things you have ever drawn.
And then what do you do? Right when you are about to finish it and put it in a frame, you accidentally splatter acrylic ink all over it like a complete fucking idiot and then spend hours cleaning it up in photoshop so that you can show it to a bunch of strangers while the actual drawing itself is basically ruined.
Fuck my life.
