Trance of Vania

Vania Zouravliov's illustrations:
bad trip?
warped fairytale?
intricate macabre goodness?
all of the above?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have lots of stuff to be thankful for this year, and just got some bomb roasted butternut squash at whole foods to seal the holiday mood.

cooking beautiful

Okay, so sometimes art does not suffice. Sometimes you need something that will hit a couple more sense. So, after doing homework, research, reading, writing, rewrites, etc. for about two days (not done yet!), I figured it was time for to treat my sensedatum.

I made pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes, with fresh raspberries and cream, and a nice strong coffee.

They appeal to every sense. You can try and argue, but you didn't hear them sizzling in the pan.

So, I am going to suffer with this short story for another month. Professor says I can't change it, which is a shame since it's completely inspired by painter Sylvia Ji. It's delicate and dark and sort of raw, like eating rare steak with a pile of nasturtiums on top.
However, it's getting colder outside, and Halloween is over, and all all all I want is to write some funny, fast story that tastes like mulled wine. I'm so into Toulouse Lautrec. Oh, Henri, you'll always be a very special French dwarf to me.
