I have a friend who delicately described my blog updates as infrequent, and he's spot on the money.

If anyone is in the area, Art Center's grad show takes place on Friday, Dec. 11th from 7-10. Come up and visit if you can! All of my fellow graduates are super talented and it should be a great showcase! Here's a teaser image from the upcoming grad show:

Just for reference, this is what an actual Kakapo looks like. They look terribly huggable:
