Trump supporters stormed the United States Capitol Building today and I've been watching news and videos all day. I hope there are serious repercussions from all this but I really doubt it.
The sticker I left at the top of the Sycamore Switchbacks Trail at Alum Rock Park was claimed. I left it yesterday about an hour before the park closed. I thought maybe some kids had found it but it turned out to be a hiker who I crossed paths with at the bottom of the trail. He picked it up soon after I left it and he DM'd me on Instagram today and let me know. The Gram's been pretty quiet all day while we wait on the presidential election results. I uploaded my latest creation which was a picture of my head with a body made out of multiple pictures of my head. It's simple but fucking weird and it made me laugh out loud. I also got back to redrawing the letters on the Layla-Mae project, Next I'm gonna ink the background. We'll see what happens tomorrow.
Last night I read the Santa Clara County voters guide that came in the mail and today I read through all the California state propositions online. I spent about 6 hours reading all the propositions, their analyses, the arguments in favor, rebuttals to the arguments in favor, arguments against, and rebuttals to the arguments against, before making my decisions and filling out my ballot. I sealed and signed my envelope and tomorrow (election day) I plan to drive to the registrar of voters and drop it off myself to avoid any fuckery at the polling place or sending it by mail. I'm hoping that on the night of the election, and the days to follow, aren't a total shit show. I've seen pictures and videos of store fronts being boarded up in anticipation of civil unrest.
