You KNow What Makes Me Happy? Bruce Beach Boogies

You KNow What Makes Me Happy? Bruce Beach Boogies

A Bruce Beach Boogie is what my family calls a walk on the beach where our cottage is. But it's not just a walk... it's a family walk, with that feeling of being slightly sunburned, talking, dragging sticks, in and out of the water, picking up cool rocks, feeling tired in that awesome way that comes from too much swimming, sometimes full from dinner that you probably didn't have to make.

In other words, the best feelings ever!

We opened the cottage last weekend. Finnegan was racing up and down the beach, giving me heart attacks because I was so scared he wouldn't come back (but he did!). The lake still had baby icebergs in it, but Finn was crashing through them and sinking them on purpose, acting like the water was room temperature even though it was covered in ice chunks. It's so nice to have Finn... he gives us more excuses to have Bruce Beach Boogies!

You may be wondering what is up with the drastically different looking illustration up there... I am learning Adobe Illustrator! It's my first week in this Illustrator Class, and so far it's awesome. I feel crazy that I was so scared of it before. Our first assignment is a typography poster, and these are the words that first came to mind. What do you think?
