Bike to Babycakes

I'd say about a month ago, I bought a used beach cruiser bike on Craigslist.  Red, Schwinn, working breaks and only minimal dents!  I love this thing.  Lately I've found that I'll pack up all my gear and head down...

TO THE BAKERY!!!  Babycakes is an amazing vegan bakery spot down on the Lower East Side.  

Here is a map of my journey.

They don't seem to mind (or at least if they do, they don't show it) that I come in extremely sweaty and proceed to cool off/eat my freshly bought baked goods right there.

The last weekend I went it was gorgeous out, extremely sunny and hot - everyone was outside.  I brought my watercolors with me & attempted a painting along the East River...

Awesome thing about sketching outside when it's so nice is that you can hide behind your shades.  People don't know you're staring at them!  Sketching!  Watching.  STARING. 

But then it means you go home like this...

Sunburn city.

Also, I'm really looking forward to seeing 'Man of Steel' on Friday.  Michael Shannon as General Zod?!  GAH!!!  I can't wait to see how he handles the role.  I was watching 'Take Shelter' recently and did some roughs of him, Jessica Chastain, and a doc.  Ok basically roughs of mostly Michael Shannon.  That movie is such a fantastic one.  Is he crazy?  Nobody knows...
