Boston Commons

I was feeding sparrows at the Boston Commons last Thursday evening, when I heard a noise like two tires popping in quick succession. For half a minute, no one gave it much notice.

Then a nearby lady, craning her neck towards the edge of the Commons, spoke.

"Hey... did someone just get shot?"

Ducklings, Coon, Noble Hound

Here are some ducklings I saw at Jamaica Pond.

Below is a coon that was hanging around the neighbor’s tree. Not my neighbor, Kate's neighbor.

We think it is a mama coon, from the second photo. (Either it's some weird fur or a baby coon.)

And here -- here is a noble, noble hound. Bask in the nobleness.

New Website!

Hey! I have a new website!

Also, here’s a guy I saw on the bus.

I feel like I see him on the buses a lot. He’s usually chatting away with the busdrivers. (Incidentally, I got caught up in drawing him, and missed my stop.)

And finally --
A bumblebee I picked up from the ground.
I gave it the core of the pear I was eating.

Tui, puppets, videos and Supreme Master Television

(What? Actual news, instead of random nature photos of stuff I see?)

SMTV (Supreme Master Television… I’m not making it up) contacted me recently. They wanted to use some of my Tui footage I shot, while in New Zealand. How they found me and my video footage: YouTube.

Also, I took photos and videos as usual for Puppet Showplace Theater’s PuppetSlams. Jill, the technical director/performer, asked to use the footage I got of her Alien Investigator puppet. I think she’s showing the video as part of her graduation thesis presentation. Anyway Jill’s puppet is pretty awesome, especially the funky hands. I’ll link the video here if it gets online. (Jill’s future website is

As long as I’m mentioning random video stuff: I also edited this short video/slideshow thing a while ago, for Sarah Ip’s “Eight (Indie) Bands to Watch in 2008” article.

Sarah Ip wrote the article/commentary for You can read the full article (with the video) here.

Don’t worry, nature photos will come again. Oh, also I moved into a new apartment, recently. I guess that's news.

Fuzzy lemons spotted eating grass

This just in -- fuzzy lemons were spotted along the Fens, pecking at something.

Left: proud parents of the fuzzy lemons.

Gasp! Fair Maiden!

I was eating breakfast, and there was a bunch of newspaper ads scattered on the table.
So I fetched a sharpie.
