I haven’t been drawing or painting in a while, I used to do a ton of these little characters on illustration board.  I feel like it would serve me well mentally to get back into it, but somehow I’ve gotten more and more into this idea of what it means to “waste time” as if I’m wasting away.  I know that’s silly.
Anyway, I have a bunch of these guys on my caitart blog.

The short video portrait I made of artist Lisa Bufano will be shown in a gallery exhibition at Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Ontario August 9 - September 7, 2014

Lisa passed away this past October, it’s nice to see that she lives on in a way.

The Brave Little Toaster.

I got a new motorcycle yesterday.  New is relative.  This is a 1964 Yamaha Santa Barbara 125cc.

My past bikes were a 1980 Honda CM400t and a 1997 Yamaha Virago XV535.  These two bikes I sold a while back and I thought I wouldn’t be riding again.  However, I started thinking about it recently and I wanted to give it another shot.  I decided that one thing I wanted to try out was going a lot smaller.  I’m pretty short and I jumped right into riding a CM400t which is a pretty heavy bike.  Since my feet just touched the ground I had trouble with the weight of the bike and keeping it balanced, so I felt nervous a lot of the time.  I moved on to the Virago because it’s seat height is much lower and I thought it would add confidence but the Virago weighs even more than the cm400t and even though I had a better hold on it, I still felt like it was controlling me instead of the other way around.  Eventually I got rid of both bikes and decided I wasn’t that into riding but now that I’m getting the itch again I figure I’ll try a smaller, lighter weight bike and start over, learn the whole thing again on a bike with less power and see how I feel.
