While doing page 1′s drawing I think was the only time I got creeped on by someone in my travels. What I mean is, while I was drawing it, a man was standing really close to me, not in a “I want to see what you’re drawing” kind of way, in a “this girl is standing still and by herself” kind of way. Basically I walked away, and he left, and I went back and finished it. So no big deal. I think I’m telling you guys this to account for the crazy dimensions in the drawing (that frieze was not round!), as my mind was distracted by being on high-alert.
So happy new year, 2010! *cough* Bringing in the new year in Prague was crazy. I’m going to be honest, Prague was the only place where I was thinking that maybe it would be better to not be alone in. I wasn’t comfortable wandering around by myself like I was in the rest of Europe, which was pretty fucking irritating. I hate feeling that way, but you kind of have to trust your instincts. I stuck to the more toursity places.
Page 3 and 4 is a ballet! The entries on Monday talk about it more, but basically I thought I was going to a Bertolt Brecht ballet, which sounds insanely awesome, and it turned out to be… Goldilocks. A Czech version of the fairytale, but still. I couldn’t mask my disappointment well so I spent the whole time drawing this spread. (If you know who Brecht is, think about it, a Brecht ballet?? That sounds soooo coool!)
