For context, read Sketches of Summer I Requested by Eliana. “I want a gangster hamster.” “A what?” “A gangster hamster.” “Do you mean an urban gangster or Al Capone gangster?” “Huh? “Nevermind.”

Sketches of Summer III

2 September, 2013 (08:45) | Sketchbook, Work | No comments

For context, read Sketches of Summer I Requested by Mackenzie. “I want a goth unicorn.” “Will emo do?” “Yeah! Oh, and make him holding a rubber duckie.” “A rubber duckie?” “You heard me.” Two years ago, after summer had ended and the school year began, I slid into my first mud season as a sub […]

Sketches of Summer II

31 August, 2013 (08:43) | Sketchbook, Work | No comments

For context, read Sketches of Summer I One of my favorite campers this summer (and that title means little cause I enjoy so many of them) was Emilie. She’s incredibly bright and funny and often took the lead when it came to improv comedy activities, something I’ve always felt terrible at. She was also, despite […]

Sketches of Summer I

29 August, 2013 (13:09) | Sketchbook, Work | 4 comments

Over the summer, I was wrangled to rejoin the YMCA for their summer camp program. Unfortunately, due to my dilly-dallying in the Spring, I missed the boat at the more prestigious and lucrative management positions. The upside was that I was installed with a regular group of kids and quickly took to drawing pictures for […]

The Marvelous Moustachioed Man

29 February, 2012 (22:55) | Work | No comments

As befit a skier in March, I have begun sporting a stache of glory. I have also designed an ad campaign and hackjobbed a website for March Moustache Madness. Check out the site for all the posters from this year and last, as well as pictures of previous contestants, winners and fakers.

Man-made Holiday

19 February, 2011 (08:18) | Work | No comments

Every year, at Passover, Jews ask the four questions. It just so happens that it’s really just one question with four variant answers: “Why is this night different from all other nights?” This weekend is Presidents Day weekend. The federal holiday falls on February 21st this year, the 3rd Monday in February as mandated by […]

Losing It.

30 January, 2011 (07:10) | Work | No comments

I┬áseethe. Rage, anger, hatred, disappointment flow through me as if I were a conduit. My body shakes, my eyes smoldering orbs glaring at the convocation of innocents before me, my knuckles blanched whiter than the snow. In the recesses of my mind, one thing and one thing alone cuts logically through the tempest of emotion: […]

Moving On

26 January, 2011 (11:43) | Work | No comments

I feel the twitter of change sending tremors through me, excitement, fear, surprise, and hope all intertwined in a strange dance of emotion. Then it hits me: the sadness and sympathy. I think over her words again: “There’s been a slight layoff,” she had said. “Four of our full time employees have been let go. […]

Split Decision

23 January, 2011 (21:17) | Work | No comments

A ski class at Eldora. Taken from here. “So how’d they do?” Jake’s mother asks me. I smile. It conveys my pride more than anything I could, but I try to put it into words anyway. “They were fantastic. They were rock stars. We played on the chairlift all day. They worked on skidded turns […]

Taking It With You

18 January, 2011 (12:32) | Work | No comments

“No Fare, No Well” by Tomer Hanuka. “I don’t know why you did that.” “I don’t know why I did it either,” I lied. Later, he would call me a “brown nose.” He wouldn’t be too far off in a fashion. — It’s just a job, I hear people say. But life doesn’t end when […]
