My jury duty service has been completed. 3 weeks. 13 full days. An extraordinary experience. I drew every witness and took extensive notes but i left those all behind and no photography was allowed. I feel I served diligently as juror and foreperson. At some point I’ll write about it or maybe zine about it. Not today. Today I rest.
Sketch Party San Diego turned four years old. It was a packed session. It’s a beautiful event with amazing people. It’s an explosion of non-commercial community. Tonight I talked (uh… ranted) with my seatmate about drawing: drawing is communication. Drawing is for everyone. You may be ashamed of what you draw. The real shame is that our culture divides us into groups, one group is creative and is allowed to draw, the other is uncreative. No. Don’t believe that lie. Draw. Draw together. It’s beautiful. I❤️U @sketchpartysd!!! #sketchpartysd
I loved everything about Books with Pictures in Portland. Friendly, approachable, great selection, inclusive. Terrific store with happy patrons! I’m in town for #xoxofest and wish the store was in my town!
I walked a mile to bodysurf “Uppers” at Trestles. I still want to check out the other spots there: Church, Middles, Lowers, Cottons. For as hard as it was to get there? Tons of people. But serene. I dug it.
More art framing! This was a test print through Burn All Books’ Riso printer for Sundays Quarterly 2019.1. It’s an inadvertent exquisite corpse as it includes test runs of layers by me, @unradmotions & @casual_vaper. Follow @burn_all_books for more awesome art. #risoprint #sandiego #zines
The carrots descending in the windy void were the most fun last night. I made 6 panels and put 1, then 2, then 4… last 32 marks in each panel. The orange marks turned into carrots. #spillsantaana #carrots
My father told me when I was in my teens: “you take in a lot of media, son, you should try to put some out there” and I think about that every day. Contributing to the latest @burn_all_books Sundays Quarterly was been an honor. This is my proud of my work face. More is coming.
This is my mom, Phyllis, symbolically fighting cancer. She’s gone 9 years in October. She fought so hard. I’m cultivating this energy for myself—sure life is unfair—but be of good cheer, surround yourself with love, and fight for what’s right!
#Cosplay is magic. Vasquez!; fun-loving Galactus, Devourer of Worlds; Jennifer Walters: She-Hulk; Parker from Alien; Queen of the Iron Throne; Rainbow Batman; DC Bombshells’ Wonder Woman; Steranko! (dapper men cosplay themselves) #sdcc #sdcc2019
I’m pretty sure this is my second medical robot, the first was Baymax. 2-1B first appeared in the Star Wars universe in The Empire Strikes Back in 1980, caring for Luke post-wampa attack and then post-Darth Vader duel. Welcome! #NewBotDay
I was given this keychain made of heavy brass in 1987 for painting backdrops with @chrisgreazel for a Uní High fashion show. I remember Madrid and Barcelona I think? Chris would remember better. This weekend I’m crafting or trying to craft cosplay pieces and as usual making things comes with a lot of feelings of success and failure simultaneously. But it’s also fun to see the odd resources I have and memories to draw on that I have had success.
Spalding Gray taught me so much. Glad to have a copy of this on DVD. The bootleg I had on VHS taped from A&E in 89 lasted a long time. Then the copy I torrented in 2005 worked for a long time. Now I’m legit. Spalding you are very missed.
