His feet were not chopped off. he was standing behind a little sand mound. Then he flew away.


Holiday Weekend Decompression and the subsequent wrap-up.

Some friends invited me to crash on the couch at their weekend retreat beach house in Montauk this weekend. I took them up on it with zero hesitation. I didn’t do as much sketching as I’d have liked while I was there, but I was also maxin’ and relaxin’. Its difficult to sketch with a drink in your hand at all times.

I haven’t been posting much lately because I haven’t been producing as much output as I’d like. And I’m not exactly happy with what I have been making, so it’s been quiet here. I’ve moved operations to a new address in uber-exclusive Bushwick, Brooklyn. Actually, to be totally imprecise, I’m not quite in Williamsburg, not quite in Bushwick. I’ve been spending time setting up shop and home.

Sadly, shortly after I moved, my cat (Cojo) was put down, after having battled diabetes for 2 years. I was sad and kept busy with busywork for some time, and now after my weekend getaway I feel refreshed and excited to work on a few new projects.

Besides the usual, I’m also currently in the early stages of a collaborative video project with a friend. We’ve both been a bit preoccupied lately, so we haven’t been meeting as often as we’d like. I’ll disclose more when there’s more to disclose.

As ever, decorating my apartment and studio is a work in progress. I’ve done a gloriously sloppy job of painting my bedroom/workspace, and am looking forward to doing the same in the living room.

Also, as ever, I have a couple of sewing projects at the back of my head. I kind of feel like I need to pick up a knitting or crocheting project, as well. or at the very least make a dress that has handknit details. One of my ideas will require going off-pattern and luckily, I have a friend I can consult with about it.

I think that about wraps up my wrap-up. I have a pile of crapyrus photos, and upcoming sketches and projects post. Those should be going up pretty soon. Thanks for not deleting me from your RSS.
