Teriyaki Salmon With Soba Noodle Salad

I saw a recipe for this dish on YouTube the other day and decided to make it. Super easy marinade comprised of things that we for the most part had around the house; It wasn’t all that different than the homebrew teriyaki sauce that I make for other things. Very easy, quick, and tasty recipe. …

Draw a Thing 10/18/16: Harvey the Cat + Color Chart

Sketched, inked, and then watercolored a picture of our cat Harvey. I messed up a bit while drawing his mouth unfortunately, so he has more of a cartoon cat expression than a normal cat expression :/. Color chart painted for reference for the sake of knowing what each color looks like on paper. I was …

Draw a Thing 10/17/16: City Street

Bought some cheap watercolors off of Amazon and tried something new. I don’t think I have¬†watercolored since oh, elementary school so crappy painting is crappy but was super fun to do! I figured that: If I made the drawing itself awesomely detailed enough, it would look half decent even if I did an ass job …

Baby Toes: Part II

Yay my plant is flowering. Unfortunately, the only time that I can see it bloom is on the weekends when we are actually home during the day. Now that the days are getting shorter, it is just dark enough for the flower to be both closed when I leave for work and closed when I …

Draw a Thing 10/12/2016: Dwarf #Inktober

No things drawn last week or the week before (save for the Rooster drawing) by virtue of Dwarf Fortress obsession. Super quick pencil drawing then inking of a dwarf; Just a random dwarf, no dwarf in particular. That said, some rather interesting events have transpired in my current fortress. I may illustrate them if I …

Fenestraria Aurantiaca (Baby Toes)

I have been looking for this plant on-and-off for a while and had finally found one back in March at one of the San Diego Succulent Society’s sales in Balboa Park. Lowe’s or Home Depot usually has them but they are usually picked over, overwatered, and seem to have a fairly high chance of dying …

Draw a Thing 9/25/16: Rooster

I like roosters :3 Forgot to erase the pencil lines before coloring with markers. Drawing, inking, and coloring took about 20 to 30 minutes. Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of marker bleed through even with the 180g paper. It’s not really that big of a deal so long as I keep a blotter on …

Cinderella Castle (Musings on Disney World)

I finally got around to pulling the pictures off of my camera and into Lightroom. I should in theory post at least some of them on Facebook or Flickr or something as requested instead of forgetting and then hoarding them on my harddrive per usual. It is way more convenient and way less cumbersome to …

Draw a Thing 9/19/16: Knife Crab

I used to be pretty okayish at drawing by virtue of doodling literally all the time. At some point I stopped and fell out of practice. New personal project: Draw something every day (or at least once a week or whenever as long as it is regular.) The idea is that the more I draw, …

Hiking Volcan Mountain

We went hiking on Sunday up Volcan Mountain (near Julian). It’s about a 5 mile round trip hike if I recall correctly. Decent hike, was kind of warm. The loop at the top has a picnic bench. Lunch was MRE menu #10: Chilli Mac (pretty good). The Salton Sea is visible from the top of …
