jounal page

I got my zine world today. I found quite a few zines I want to order. I am currently reading Jelly Roll and I can't figure out who is writing it or if they are real stories or not. All I know is, I am enjoying the 7 issues they sent me.
I have been doing more reading and less painting and drawing. I FEEL like drawing and painting I just don't know WHAT I feel like focusing on right now. I feel like I have a lot more time lately.
Drawings of Gary, alexis glick, and a few stickers I made.

Mostly sketches while watching TV. I don't know what prompted me to make my own gold seal. Probably watching the president make speeches and a lot of talk about finance lately.

our bus

This is our 67 bus. I remember when I bought it. I owned a big ole dodge van and a little Volkswagen beetle at the time.  Gary encouraged me to get this instead.  I would let him talk me into anything back then....even riding on a roller coaster once... BUT it was a neat van in it's day. 

It was pure white with orange curtains. Inside it had a refrigerator, seats that faced each other and a little table you could lift out from the side wall and prop up on one leg attached underneath it. The back area had a storage compartment and a little closet. There were also storage areas under the seats.

It's still fun to ride around in it once in a while but certainly not to be used as a primary source of transportation! It's Gary's bus now. 

Gary also had a vw bus at the time. His was a 65 white bus. We were twins.
