if i may, just this once, post a non-drawing? i think you will agree these unique circumstances call for it. i mean, i’m nearly jumping out of my skin about this!!
so this morning, i was IMing with my friend Matt… here is an excerpt:
i’ve been obsessed with mini-horses for a long time. the last time i saw one up close & personal was at last year’s Iowa State fair and i wanted to make a tiny saddle and ride off into the sunset atop a mini-horse.
anyhow, after our IM chat, my work day passed unextraordinarly. by the time i hopped off the train, i was eager to get home. so there i am, walking at a good clip down milwaukee ave – in chicago’s wicker park neighborhood, just a block from home…
when all of a sudden! could it be?! no, it couldn’t be? yes, it is! a miniature horse is headed my direction! yep, proof that i live on the coolest street ever. iao, accompanied by his out-of-town owners, was enjoying a walk around the neighborhood. he was super sweet, and obliged when i bent down to pet him.
the universe must be smiling down, cuz i hadn’t even blog-drawn about the little guy yet! in honor of iao, the next few posts will be mini-horse-related! i think this may go down as one of the happiest serendipities ever! yay mini-horses!
