“Newsies” Jack Kelly

31 May

I promised you a post about NYC, and it’s coming, however for now I’ll just upload a quick sketch I made of Jack Kelly, the main character in the musical “Newsies” that I watched on Broadway. It was AMAZING! f you have not seen Newsies, order your ticket NOW! or rent the film at the library 😉 Anywhooo, here’s a little collage of my spare time dawdlings…The sketch took 11 min to make and the computer “editing” approximately the same XD. Still, hope you like, and WATCH “NEWSIES” TAHT IS AN ORDER.

My own interpretation on how Jack Kelly looks :)

My 21st birthday :C I feel old…but it’s okay C:

25 May

Helluuu! Thursday(23rd of May) was my 21st birthday! 21 is kind of a big deal here in the US because you are finally allowed to drink alcohol(legally anyway)! So, all my friends were really excited about this, but when the day came all of them sort of forgot their big plans of getting me drunk, which I was quite pleased to discover XD I chose to spend the day in quiet surroundings at my calmer friends’ apartment. M&M&L cooked me dinner (Norwegian porridge XD) and brownies, and we had a lovely little birthday party ❤

here is a picture of what a 21 year old Marianne looks like after a day at work on her birthday: greasy hair, no makeup, bad skin, but loving life ;B Alles gut 😀

I also, VERY unexpectedly I might add, received several little birthday presents from my roomies and friends ^-^(awwww…) From my Thai-roomie, J, I got chocolate pudding for breakfast ❤

Image

There’s NO way to make chocolate pudding look tasty, but I tried :B

From my Thai-roomie, N, I received a ummm…I’ll just incert the picture ‘cus I don’t know how to describe it…but it was very nice, and from Thailand! 😀 It’s something with pockets to hang on your wall ^-^

From my Thai-roomie, T, I got a…drumroll….Life-size Harry Styles poster ❤ I’ve finally got a boyfriend! A paper one…forever alone…

 I also got a leaving present from her it was very cute:

Image

From my last Thai-roomie I got a Mickey mouse Fantasmic key-ring from where she’s been working so that I’ll think of her whenever I visit HS 😀

Image

I also got a present from my friend, C, who i work with, it was lovely thank you! A silver ring and Norwegian chocolate 😀 YUM!

Image(it melted a little on the way home, howwever it tasted just fine after an hour in the fridge ;P

Other than that I was showered in birthday greetings on FB so I feel very loved, thanks everyone 😀 Had a very nice day indeed! ❤

May. 17th! Happy Birthday Norway! :D

19 May

Two days ago was Norway’s 199th constitution day, where we celebrate our independence as a country. It was May 17th in 1814 that we finally got our own constitution and we were no longer ruled by Sweden or Denmark. I was working that day of course, however I got off fairly early (quarter past five) so I had time to eat ice cream 😀 It is sort of an unwritten rule that the children can eat as much ice-cream as they want between sunrise and sunset on this day. So as I was celebrating in an amusement-park, there were lots of other Norwegians there, that were visiting that day, some of them were very drunk -__-” May 17th is not for getting hammered! It is for family and friends and ice-cream and fun! You can have a beer or a glass of champagne. but leave it at that please 😀 Anywhoooo… Here is a picture from the celebration room that work set up for us :

photo (22)Today one of my friends form last years Design&Fashion class sent me a link on facebook. It was for the blog of Esra Røise a REALLY good freelance illustrator. I love her style, however I saw her kind of style somewhere else first, some illustrations by Caroline Andrieu. They look kind of alike, but I might like Andrieu a little better, purely because I found her first ^-^ Anyway. I’ve wanted to try out this style for a while now, so here is my attempt at a Andrieu/Røise picture C: Hope you like ❤

Starlit Splash and Pirates :D

3 May

Yesterday I went to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon for the cast members’ Starlit Splash Party! I was a little skeptic at first, as I don’t really like big crowds, especially crowds of strangers, but I had a blast! ❤ We had the park all to ourselves from 7pm-12pm and there was free food, drink, ice-cream, popcorn and crisps + a surprisingly good DJ and to say that the mood was good would be a major understatement. The highlight of the evening for me was without a doubt when the pirates invaded the beach. I LOVE PIRATES! Pirates VS Ninjas…sorry ninjas you don’t stand a chance against the awesomeness of pirates ;P Anywhooo I’m really glad I went as this was by far the most fun I’ve had since I got here, which was 6 months two days ago. They were also giving out free stuff, so I got an eye-patch and a pirate bandana so all is great ❤  Here’s a picture of one of the Pirates:
