Sitting Up To Eye You


-
Kanka is leaving my mark all around the world again it seems. What a nice fella...
-
Headed home for some Thanks Giving today... lots of good eats in order tomorrow. Always good times. Lots and lots of work going on right now... mostly web as usual. Trying to dig my way out of the mess of content I need to build out. According to the big board it's 7 sites currently in Build-Out phase and then 4 new ones after that. Good stuff.. gonna keep myself busy the rest of this year and into next it seems. I have this huge interactive animated flash movie that I also have produce before the end of the year. I'm not having fun anymore... ha ha ha. Who am I kidding.
-
Production room is finally finished, but I need to get back into the studio after the holiday and get the exposure table built so we can start cranking out t-shirts and posters for next year with some speed. That will be some good times. Shoot I need that button maker back from Harris too... got to get that stuff back to top priority after I wrap up all these other web projects. Seems like I'll have a good amount of time to sit back next year and get back in to art production again.
-
The key of course is getting this sites content system sorted out and posting all the work. But thats the whole point of the production room now... so I guess it's all getting there.

Don't Come A Rockin...Try'n Act So Cool


Thats right... new from Ferrara Pan — "CHEWY Lemon-Head & Friends". Pretty great stuff... they also have CHEWY Fireballs, but I didn't try any of those. Ohh yeah also scored some MAMBAs from the candy racks as well... haven't seen that stuff since I was like 12 back up in Buffalo.
-
Was hanging out at Bothwell's new crib last night ... house warming party and such. Place was packed and then packed some more. Must have been well over 60+ at this little party. Hung outside by the fire most of the night with old Spin Creative types and other loyal friends. Lindy discovered an interesting method of wearing pants when doing the whole fire thing... pretty brilliant stuff. Lots of crazy fools all over the place last night, some pretty cool neighboors hung out by the fire and guzzled beer with us. There was almost a fight at one point and tons of good looking ladies... Ouch.
-
When I was leaving a group of us got caught up in a conversation with some crazy neighborhood lady who was poppin Colt 45's and telling jokes to us in the driveway. She really seemed to have something against Billy D. Williams and when I confronted her on it she said..."Quiet down there Superman I'm trying to tell you'z a story now!" I think she meant it too... though I've never been referred to as Superman before. Maybe she had me mixed up with that Clark Kent guy.

And You've Been So Busy Lately




Yes I have been busy lately... to busy to do anything fun it seems. Nope... haven't sent any postcards recently. Nope... have made any new prints lately. Nope... have finished building the exposure table. But anyways... there is much to to and then there are other things to do on top of that. I've got this double set of white boards staring me down. They look pretty formidable with all the organized gibberish I've written on them. My mission is to erase as much of that board as possible before it over fills with to much work. Filthy... it's just filthy.
-
On an up note I have recently finished building out my reference and completed art storage room. Floor to ceiling shelving all around and a small stand-up table in the center of the room. So I've gotten all the finished pieces out of the studio space finally and into they finalization and archiving room. It's a pretty smart set-up since my office is right next to the space... so pulling refernce materials to build up this site will happen really fast now. Good stuff.
-
Anyways... tonight or well this morning arleady i suppose I'm up late working on a web site for a client... yup... Good stuff.
