The Somewhat Daily Adventures of Bur – 036

036 – Cooking with Courage

More Time at Home

With so much more time at home, it’s actually getting pretty difficult to put my experiences into my comics. I’m not the funniest guy around so coming up with inspired content is difficult. Less experiences usually means less inspiration to draw from. 

Recently Mark and I decided to have omelettes for breakfast, and I thought I’d be fancy and flip it. I screamed. Hot egg got everywhere. It was actually hilarious. 

It got us on the topic of Julia Child, and how she’d fudge up on national television. Just laugh it off with a quick moment of advice. 

So I got curious and did some digging. I didn’t want to miss quote her. 

She actually doesn’t say you need to have courage when you flip an omelette. She actually admits she didn’t have enough courage in one of her episodes when she messed up in front of the studio audience. I know I would be a hot mess cooking in front of that many people. 

Here’s a random thought for you! Wouldn’t Julia Child make a great contestant on RuPaul’s Snatch Game? I thought so too!

Super Secret Art Update!

So because I’m spending so much time at home, I’ve been working on my own artwork a lot more. So let me tell you a bit about what’s in the works. Mainly because I have no idea what else to talk about! 

I’m working on a new liquid butterfly! This one is going to be purple! PURPLE! Keep an eye out on instagram. I’ll be posting process and progress pictures in my story. 

If you already follow my instagram account. Not Burs, you’ll know I’m working on a piece featuring the lily of the valley! It’s definitely more conceptual. I’m very excited to see how it unfolds. 

There’s also a few littler pieces on the go. Featuring Thistle. They were originally going to be a series of work dedicated to the upcoming Highland festival. It’s been cancelled unfortunately but I still want to make some pieces. They’re going to show up later on in the month. 

Well I’ve rambled on long enough for today. 

Even with things reopening don’t forget we are still responsible for the health and wellbeing of ourselves and one another. Keep physical distancing, keep washing your hands, and stay as much as possible. 

stay creative!
