Random Journal Page 153 by Laura Chenault has hands doing shadow puppet figures with some green bokeh combined with a skeleton-masked person celebrating dia de los meurtos in San Francisco.

Hands posing in position to create shadow puppets combine beautifully with the skeleton-masked dia de los meurtos celebrator. If you look closely, you'll see an older collage poking out on the left.

Exploring Santa Rosa Foothill Regional Park

Reflections of trees and sky in still water that has a few small reeds breaking up the surface. Exploring the Santa Rosa Foothills photo by Laura Chenault

I went for a hike in the Santa Rosa Foothill Regional Park with Dave and my friend Arnold's awesome family. It's an easy trail with lots of beautiful nature to look at.Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

I'm following Guiganoide

Marceline portrait by Guiganoide features a tattooed version of the popular character from the cartoon Adventure Time drinking a cup of coffee. The text reads "It's coffee time".

I'm in love with Guiganoide's funky illustrations of popular characters, especially her ​pieces of Marceline and Princess Bubblegum from one of my favorite cartoons: Adventure Time. And if you look closely at their tattoos and coffee cups, they're a couple!

The Book of Memory Gaps

An illustration of a character named Viktor from The Book of Memory Gaps by Cecilia Ruiz. He is on a boat in the ocean waving towards the shore where his wife is standing next to a lighthouse.

The Book of Memory Gaps by Cecilia Ruiz is a beautifully illustrated series of short tales featuring characters that have different types of memory loss. Thoughtful, beautiful and poetic, the words accompanying each photo are just enough to tell the story.

Exploring Paulin Creek Open Space

I've been spending a lot of time exploring Paulin Creek Open Space in Santa Rosa. Trails lead you down and around Paulin Creek.

Following Twisted Doodles

A comic by Twisted Doodles showing two donuts with faces. The left donut has a hole and the right donut is jelly filled. The left donut is saying, "You're one jammy f*cker." and the right donut is saying, "Well you're a holey show." Text surrounding them says Good friends… donut fight.

I'm following Twisted Doodles, specifically their Instagram account. Fun and filled with cute drawings. Many of which are chock full of puns. I guffawed at the donut fight and startled a cat ;)
