Bygone Bounce

Bygone Bounce from Shen Ramu on Vimeo.

My best friend is moving to a new city to start a new chapter of her life...this is yet another part of growing up and a stage we all must go through. However, I hope that despite the new responsibilities, complications, and practicality of "adult-hood" we all will experience, that a bit of childhood is always kept at heart (and manages to surface every now and then!)

This weekend we will celebrate her last couple days here for a while, so for now, I leave you with a short film I which I've tried to capture moments of childhood - the "ups" and the "downs" - and hope that we never lose that carefree, fun, child-like state of mind.

Have a great weekend everyone :)

Cali some more - Day Four

Some days we’d dine out, but eat in on some nights,
We bought candy and cookies and all sorts of delights.
Sandwiches with baguette, and salami and cheese,
Were delicious and easy, and cut back on our fees.
But at the deli counter, when I ordered in grams,
The guy there looked stumped, he asked “pardon ma’am?”
Oh yeah! they’re not how else do I order
This cold cut salami here below the border?...
…(The sandwiches were made, turned out very nice,
Instead I just figured, I’ll order by slice!)
Then at the motel, in true picnic style,
We ate and drank beer and hung out for a while.

In Red

Another in the cutout style I like so much. Maiden in Red.

Cali Sea - Day Three

Traveling is great, 
exploring is fun,
But nothing quite beats 
a nice beach and some sun.

Cali View - Day Two

Drove by the studios, went to the zoo,
Griffith park was cool, from the Observatory's view.
Toured Pasadena, our lunch was divine,
And I'll never forget that big Hollywood sign.

magic lamp

My talented friend Ben writes/plays/sings great music! I hope to one day animate a music video to one of his songs, but for now, some sketches inspired by one of his tunes titled Magic Lamp.
 Download and listen to more of his melodies (including Magic Lamp) here:
Album: Surftime

Cali Sun - Day One

Recently got back from a 10 day trip in California with my bestest of best friends Laura! Here is the first of a series of doodles that will attempt to document our sunny adventures...

Rented a car in LA, a Volkswagen Jetta
T'was cute and bright RED, made everyone turn their head-a
But while I took photos, at the city remarking,
It was really a bitch, to find some good parking!
