You Are What You Search

This is definitely off topic, but AOL apparently released to the public what search terms its users entered, and there's a funny article on the subject. (One search term was, "i hurt when i think too much i love roadtrips i hate my weight i fear being alone for the rest of my life".)

Here's the URL: http://www.slate.com/id/2147590/?nav=tap3


And while I'm here, I'll post a pen and ink drawing of the old casino at Avalon, on Catalina Island. It's still in my sketchbook, as you can see. I kinda like that frame. If you click on it, you'll get a larger version.

Hey Janet,

Great sketch! Looks just like the Casino. I've never made a sketch like that tho. ;-j

See you in class!

This is fabulous! I was there once many years ago and your drawing, with all its luscious detail brings me right back! You managed to include lots of detail without it being overworked which I really admire. I also really appreciate the wide range of values you captured and your wonderful composition.
