The Rest of California

The remaining days of our stay included mass amounts of rest and relaxation. It was a much needed break from work and regular life. We saw some cool places around San Francisco and Oakland and ate some good foods in parks and good restaurants.

Also, it was great to catch up with our old friend Ryan, pictured here below with Jessica.

He showed us the sights and sounds that we’d have never found on our own and kept us fed and laughing. Also, we met our new California family Cati, Charles, Laz and old friends Pancho and Cricket.

There’s more pictures out there if you’re handy with Instagram. Or we could do it the old fashioned way and talk about it next time we see each other. Back to work for now, more things coming this week. Stay tuned!

Vacation

I’m just about to wrap up my vacation and I’ve gotta tell you it was pretty awesome. Christmas was great and New Years was great. I didn’t make a whole bunch of art for myself, but worked on Crummy House books and went on a trip to Portland. I’m ready to get back in the swing of things and start cranking out the work as this year unfolds to show us it’s glory. Welp, here we go. Hope to run into you soon.

What a weekend

4OUR Party, breakfast with mom and pops, Jess, Logan and Ben, clean the casa, bowling with friends, drinks at the bar, got arty Sunday morning, then went to Barton Springs for a dip, then Dinner with Schmucks with Nate, Carrie, Alexis and Klint and home for a good night sleep before this morning. Its a shame we only get two days to do all of that.

Xandrandave Cookout

The sun roasted us as we roasted some meat and drank some beers. It was hot enough to make me think later that night that someone at the bar was going to take my skin and make a suit out of it. Whoa, glad I got that out of my system. Good to see all the friendly faces though. The bottom right image is a studio David built.

Back to work tomorrow. Big couple weeks coming up.

New Mexico art

Santa Fe, New Mexico:

Madrid, New Mexico:

This is a very brief run-down of the art we saw in New Mexico. There was a bunch of great, overpriced artwork there and a bunch of really affordable, decent art. Madrid was definitely the best. A super small town with lots of vendors and people relaxing in the summer sun. A couple hippies, too.

Newness and Crawfish

Super excited to add a new tool to my creative bag of tricks and my neck and back appreciate not having to look at a 15 inch screen to do most of my work at home. Got a new iMac this weekend. Ready to put it to work.

Other than that, did some yard work and went to a crawfish boil at Ryan and David’s in honor of Isadora’s birthday. Was a pretty fun time. Here’s one of the goofy hosts above.
