Disney: Spectral MAGIC!

So last year at Disney, there happened to be a slight hurricane the entire time we were there. So the Spectral Magic Night Parade Extravaganza was canceled every night we were in the Magic Kingdom. But THIS time, there was no hurricane, and I finally got to see the parade. It was fantastic! They shut off all of the lights on Main Street, and then these bizarre, neon, laser-light, floats and dancers come swirling around and winding their way through the streets, with futuristic beeping and whirring sound effects. It's very beautiful, and very trippy. My favorite part was the Pegaus float from Fantasia, I'm going to have to do a drawing of just them next year....

Disney: Waiting for the Parade

In the Magic Kingdom, the crowds of people start to line the street as the park is closing, waiting for the Spectral Magic Night Parade that goes down Main Street every night. Here are people settling themselves down to wait for the parade, and the parade is up next!

National Equality March

This past Sunday, October 11, 2009, was the National Equality March: A march on the Capitol in Washington DC demanding the LGBT community's full and equal rights under the law. We marched. And we listened to the speeches of leaders, activists, actors, pop-stars, and Judy Shepard, who lost her son years ago to homophobic violence, and inspired the nation to protect their LGBT children. As we all stood and listened, their words echoed from the Capitol to the Washington Monument, to the White House, to every symbol of freedom, equality, and democracy that had built our nation.

Disney: Gibbons

First, a notice: My project, A Picture For A Thousand Voices has moved to and is being updated regularly, so go check it out!


I have always loved gibbons, ever since I was a little kid. They're so graceful but goofy at the same time, and are by far the most adorable of the apes. Their body language is so human, but so strange and distorted. Animal Kingdom had a baby gibbon this year, who I could have sat and watched for hours. Of course, I had other things I had to go and draw, but I couldn't resist drawing them every time I passed by their enclosure.

Disney: The Castle

Everyone was crowded under the castle as it started to rain. I was under shelter too, but the wind still managed to knock my ink bottle over! Thank god for water soluble ink, the rain did most of the cleaning for me!
