Today was excellent because I cleaned up my studio, updated my website, and finished applying to Grad school.  Time for a celebratory blog post about what Fisk and I have been up to over the Christmas Holiday!
Aimee's going away party at FCB. We'll miss her!!
After escaping a man vomiting on the Subway: Snowman.
I wrapped presents for Fisky! 
We watched Will Vinton's Claymation Christmas.
Alise, Nate, Rautio, Ren, and I making Tamales!!
Masa for days. 
Chilis for days.
It took me 5 hours to scrape all this pulp from the Chilis. 
My sauce was perfect with the meat for filling tamales!
140+ tamales. Fisk made sure we all had enough booze.
Made a snow woman!!
We played fun games with friends!!

This person wins at Christmas lights.
I love Christmas. 



The weekend before last Fisk and I made a quick trip to Richmond, VA to visit VCU.  Most of these photos were taken by Fisk, who is a much better photographer than I. 

The James River!

VCU had a great show of paintings by Ralph Pugay, including the rave below.

Aside from this trip I've recently been interning at Brooklyn Art Space, which has been fun.  I've also been spending many hours making my applications to grad school perfect, resting a strained knee, reading Sacred Economics, and watching documentaries about Absinthe, Ayahuasca, and Wolves.
