Wreck This Tuesdays: 1

Happy Tax Day, guys!

The first installment of Wreck This Tuesdays is finally here. If you’re considering getting a Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith with some of your tax return money, here’s a little preview, I guess.

I would have started this two weeks ago, but I kept forgetting to have some pages done by the time Tuesday came around. Twice. -_-

Anyway, here are the first three pages I’ve done from the color edition of Wreck This Journal (I will be completing pages in any order I so choose):

Holes

So I’m almost 90% sure that the pre-determined hole markings on the page aren’t binding, but the small neat freak inside of me says they are. I think the hardest thing about this activity book is going to be convincing myself that there are no rules.
Lines
I never make lines this straight on a normal day, but they managed to look decent here. I didn’t even use a ruler. What even! I liked making the fat lines by pressing hard because I was able to see just how dark the pencil mark will appear with varying pressures. Also, peep the previous page’s holes lol.
Scribbles
More like squiggles? Are these considered scribbles? Does it matter? This page was the most fun for me so far. I did this scribble/squiggle without taking the pencil off the paper, which I’m not even sure was on purpose. I really like the way it came out, and it was quite therapeutic to let my hand do whatever it wanted!
These three pages seemed less wreckless than most of the others I’ve glimpsed at in this journal. Honestly, used to draw lines and scribble (or squiggle) all over my notes in class as a kid and undergrad student, so that didn’t make me feel like I was destroying anything. The page with the holes made me cringe, though.

Here’s to weekly cringes every Tuesday, then!

So, an important question for those of you seasoned wreckers:
Am I supposed to wreck both sides of the page?

Fan Art Fridays: Ike Barinholtz

The film Blockers is out in theaters this weekend, and I’m seriously considering going to see it in theaters because I’m not sure I can wait until this hilariousness is available on DVD!

I saw the trailer for the film when I went to watch Pitch Perfect 3 in theaters in December 2017. I laughed so hard at Ike Barinholtz (who plays Hunter in the film) because, well, he’s Ike Barinholtz.

Ever since knowing Ike Barinholtz as Morgan Tookers on The Mindy Project, I’ve realized this guy is a total and complete goofball. He’s so ridiculous it’s insane.

In honor of the crazy man that is Ike Barinholtz, I’ve decided to feature this sketch of the actor/comedian I found on Deviant Art by Peter Ono (Uptighturbanite). It features him as Nurse Morgan Tookers making a face that basically sums up his insanity.

Fan Art Fridays: Reese Witherspoon

Hollywood’s favorite blonde sweetheart Reese Witherspoon is in the new film A Wrinkle in Time, which is out in theaters this weekend!

Even though it’s based on a children’s book, I, as a 23 year old going on 24 still want to see it at some point. Maybe I’ll catch it on DVD in a few months.

She stars in the movie alongside Oprah and Mindy Kaling, and the trailer for it alone has my jaw to the ground with the powerful vibes of this all-girl trio! What a better way to celebrate an adaptation of literature AND Women’s History Month?!

In honor of Reese being in this film, I’ve decided to feature her for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. I found this amazing black-and-white sketch of Reese Witherspoon on Deviant Art, which, interestingly is by Rick Fortson (a.k.a. Dr. Pencil), the father of one of my favorite indie musicians Andrew Belle (born Drew Fortson)!

I love how sweet yet stern the actress looks in the sketch. It’s like she’s staring sweetly but also quite seriously into your soul.

If you love this sketch, you can buy it on Rick Fortson’s site.

 

Fan Art Fridays: Rachel McAdams

Our favorite Canadian drama actress, Rachel McAdams, is pregnant with her first child!

News of the broke pregnancy on Thursday, and I am so happy for her!

As most probably do, I’ve loved pretty much loved every film I’ve seen starring Rachel McAdams. I think my favorite film she’s starred in would have to be The Time Traveler’s Wife, in which she played Clare Abshire alongside Eric Bana’s character Henry DeTamble.

In light of this baby news, I’ve decided to feature some fan art I found of the actress on Deviant Art by k-dezign. It appears to be inspired by a still of her character Kay Nesbitt in the film Married Life, which takes place in 1949.

I think this black and white sketch captures her essence perfectly. K-design definitely got her on her good side!

Fan Art Fridays: Lin-Manuel Miranda

Continuing on with Hispanic Heritage Month, for this week’s Fan Art Fridays we have the one and only Lin-Manuel Miranda!

The actor put out an amazing song today for Puerto Rico’s hurricane relief efforts called “Almost Like Praying,” which features a long list of fellow Latin American artists including Alex Lacamoire, John Leguizamo, Jennifer Lopez, Rita Moreno, Ednita Nazario, Joell Ortiz, Anthony Ramos, and Gina Rodriguez.

In light of this, I went on the hunt for some fan art of Lin-Manuel, and of course the majority of what I could find is Hamilton-related. I’m not complaining, though.

This black and white sketch is by Eleanor Orchard. She does a lot of sketches of K-Pop artists as well. I love how serious Lin-Manuel looks here.

See the original fan art on Tumblr and don’t forget to check out “Almost Like Praying”.

Fan Art Fridays: Mariah Carey

Is this supposed to be the re-emancipation of Mimi?

This week, Mariah Carey did a photo shoot while floating on the Dead Sea to promote Dead Sea Cosmetics, and it is now confirmed that she’s indeed extra.

I mean, I can’t say I would pass up the opportunity to do a photo shoot on such a gorgeous piece of scenery, especially if I were a multi-platinum artist.

To celebrate her extra-ness (is that a word?), let’s enjoy a normal pencil sketch I found of the singer on Pinterest by reifra.
