Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Heart Day. For some, February 14th is a mess of capitalism and cheesy stuff animals, but my boyfriend and I see it as a friendly reminder that we should pick up a nice bottle of wine and forget about work for a while. This morning I painted him the little valentine above. I should explain- my nickname in the relationship is "squirrel". Although it sounds very cute, I actually got the title because I'm a total SPAZ when crossing the street (like a squirrel: right. left. hop to the right some more. freeze. RUN). He became known as "Woodchuck" (depending who you ask that came about for different reasons, although I think neither one of us knows 100% anymore). The apartment is littered with woodchuck drawings, but I don't have a scan. However, I realize that I basically draw him as a big round fuzzball that looks kind of like Totoro, so that will do for the sake of this entry.



  1. awww...I love that painting. and I love how you describe how you got your fun!

  2. Haha. That's adorable. I agree about the day of 'love'. I went out to eat at an Indian restaurant with my boyfriend and we both tried to forget about our work and job-searching.

  3. Ahh, the Totoro.

    I wish they made giant Totoro beds! Then I could nap on one and wake up with creative thoughts.
