I am a young, American artist who loves to travel. Currently, Im humming about in/near South Lake Tahoe, CA. Enjoy.


A case of the "Mondays"

I woke up this morning feeling a little melancholy. My mood matched the day: cold, pale and hazy from the intermittent snowfall. I decided to snuggle up on the couch, look up flights to Paris and catch up on my "Gray's Anatomy". But after a few cups of coffee and a handful of likor-filled chocolates, I had a new zest for the day. Carpe diem! So I bundled up and took a walk.

 I drew this hipster on the train home from Basel one night. Two days later, I recognized him smoking a cig with his friends on a street corner in Claraplatz because he was wearing the same outfit.

Karlheinz Weinberger

Today I went to the Museum Fur Gegenwartskunst Basel to see a special exhibition by Swiss photographer,  Karlheinz Weinberger. In the 1950's and early 60's, a small group rebelled against the post-war Swiss ideal by emulating tough-guys from American culture like Elvis, James Dean and Brando. The youth, called "Halbstark" created their own studded and embellished outfits using jeans, chains, leather, fringe, horseshoes, bullets, studs and whatever else they could find. Tough. Cool. They had attitude. They had style, even if most of them looked like gay cowboys. Most of them weren't violent. They weren't criminals, they just wanted to rebel against their parents ideals of conservatism, make out with their sweethearts and ride around on motorcycles...
I loved this show. Afterwards, I tromped down to Marktplatz, drank a beer and looked for a cute, tough dude on a bike to whisk me away...but I rode the train home instead ;)




Alles Gute, Mama Cornelia!! (Shes the cute blonde in the blue blouse ;) A beautiful birthday champagne brunch was in order today followed promptly by a nap. (Still jet-lagged?) Dani woke me up 4 hours later to go back for the birthday dinner. Cool! I love this German family... After some bunnies, a bloody nose and an underdog football triumph, we called it a night. Tomorrow? Surprise, another party!!


Guten Morgen, Eiken!

My new home :) Plan for today? Take a run, explore the village, study my german books and have dinner ready for the roomies with out burning the place down.

I left Tahoe this morning and spent my last night in San Francisco catching up with dear friends. We ate homemade lasagna, played Madd Gabb and drank. A lot :)
