vitamin water


i been pretty busy, but this entry is important and so here we go.
ok maybe not important important...

alright so tomorrow my beloved and i are venturing off to Montreal to Galerie D'este to drop off a huge (by my standards) piece! this is pretty exciting as i have never taken such a long trip, especially as driver. this is very cool because i will get to visit the gallery that has been carrying and selling some of my works for about a year now... and of course i get to quickly take in the sights of Montreal.
who knows how this trip will play out. i mean, awesome of course but a new experience.
finally a mini-roadtrip after all my let down roadtrip plans. so yea, i'm psyched.

work has been ok. but i have been siiiick. sick like most people i know. its just going around here. weather was getting nice, spring was looking good and then it went to shit and its cold again.
i am now getting over all the sniffles and sneezing, the coughing and croaking, the shivers and shakes... ready to do stuff and not stop to blow my nose.

good good.

alright so here are a few teaser shots of the larger piece. 3 x 4 feet to be exact.
i will post the image in its entirety when i can, as well as the smaller ones i have thrown clips of on last posts.

also here is a mash of some scribbles from work. not very exciting mashup as the grid paper makes it a bit more difficult.

well i suppose i go off to bed now. well... off to organize whatever junk i need to take with me. maybe i will take the ol' video cam and make a little video blog of our 6hr drive. or not... as its really not that much of a trip. but with the right gangster-rap on the playlist.. who knows.

lumbar support

hello there,

hows you been?
i have been ok. slaving away at this and that, trying to find a little me time here and there.
have been having some crazy dreams man, which always seems to be the case! in one dream i as losing my mind a la A Beautiful Mind... in another dream i was having an odd dream involving Ice Cube... we were discussing his shitty movies and the bad choices he has made leading up to them. t'was weird.

i will now go into a rant reading from a terribly scratchy scribbled dream written out in the middle of the night. nonsense begin!:

i think it begins with you. we're just lying in bed. however you are someone else. you are telling me this... a connection between a lake drying up and a thought about the end of the world. more people.... word i cant read... dancers. explain truths? -change- im being tested by my aunt. taking multiplechoice questions... simple but nothing makes sense.. i start to make connections between number and things. people. dancing. random thingd in room leading them all to think i am crazy though i know i am not. -change- there are children. idiot savants. again numbers. connections. writing on glass, remembering the dreams. head in the dreams. trying to explain the dream where people all think im crazy - all the while i start to make connections and begin to write numbers. at one point im writing a series of numbers and as i do i see the larger.. matrix of the numbers in my head. as i weite they change and you and i get goosebumps and begin to laugh... crazy. again you. not you... i am explaining everything to you and you are concerned. you are being played by Katie Holmes.. Dustin Hoffman plays my doctor. he says sometimes i get angry and have moments of delusion and nonsense... -change-.. waiting in elevator. kid drops bus transfer no.69. numbers are missing from elevators.. it starts over again. your hair is black. blonde. wig? you are tired of hearing about my dream, of my memories. its all a mess... and it goes on like this for 2 more pages.

fun right? yea i know.
here are some scribbles scribbled out while not busy at work.

also. Superman All Star was released as an animated movie based on the graphic novel. it was pretty awesome. awesome in that it was actually very nicely tied to the book. as such it was not so much enjoyed by the peeps i watched it with as they don't fall Superman at all and could not really follow what was going on and why.... well, i liked it.

lately i have been watching Batman the Brave and the Bold while i paint and such. its pretty cool. the style is different from the usual Bruce Timm. still very enjoyable. storylines are "cuter" than usual.. eh well... for da kids!

also!! a blog i follow entitled Action Figure Blues which reviews and discusses action figure... action picked me as their super random lucky monthly comment winner and i won a Robin figure! hurray for me! this is awesome because i didn't have one. and yes i needed one. now you know. again thanks to Andy of AFB and Mike's Comics n' Stuff for the lovely prize

here is another random doodle. i dunno.

but yea. my back hurts. boo-urns.
