Home, My Sweet Home

My month of traveling about is almost done. It was amazing. It was exhausting. It was aces! I met an abundance of wonderful people. I discovered I like speaking and teaching a lot more than I expected.

The one thing I noticed from my time in the spotlight was that everywhere I went there were people working behind the scenes very, very hard. There was Sari from Sterling working Sunday and then flying home to New York and back in the office on Monday. Glori from USF helped me get a new room key and drove me around San Francisco on a Friday in five-o-clock traffic when she could have been home with her family. I noticed Jessica from the Schulz Museum moving her carseat into the trunk so we could all get a ride home from dinner. I know she was probably hoping to get home in time to see her kids before they went to sleep.

So to Sari, Glori and Jessica for all the mundane tasks, hours of emails, organizing and event planning, thank you for making me shine. And to all the unsung folks in the world, chauffeuring, baking, organizing and cleaning up, you have my gratitude.

We made toys at the Thacher Gallery at USF.

The kids had fun racing their boats.

I spent the afternoon at Golden Gate Park, sketching with Katie McDee and Kim Dwinell.

We knew we were in San Francisco when we met this group of Pikachu. They were adorable.

Sketching, sketching.....

We spent the next day at the Schulz Museum in San Francisco. Kim taught perspective and shading. Katie taught character design and cartooning. My table made portfolios to keep sketches in.
