Sexy and I know it.

Today is Monday and we’re leaving San Angelo on Thursday night. Holy-guacamole the time has flown by these last few months. I’m going to make this post short since I want to play a few rounds of Spelunky with Sarah before bed time.
I made this awesome LMFAO art piece today for Day 3 remaining

Sexy and I know it

I know it’s awesome because a bunch of friends said it was. Just look what @AListExpert had to say about it.

@DevinGus OMG puh-lease buy that! Or buy me one! 😀 #YesPlease

I offered to trade her an art piece so we’ll see what happens there. She designs ladies “unmentionables” for some clothing company in New York…Victoria Something?

If I get enough interest in the project once it’s complete I may do a limited second run of 25 of each piece. Maybe sell them on Etsy or something.
Which reminds me, have guys seen Regretsy, or Your Kickstarter Sucks for that matter? Pure. Comedic. genius.

Back in Texas for a few last days.

Well we had our trip to Colorado Springs and it was great! Sarah took care of the paper work for her new Job at PPCC and we found a house in a great location. The house is right on Prospect Lake at Memorial Park, which positions it about a mile from downtown and (more importantly) extremely close to the 7-11 Velodrome.
We’re really excited to be moving and we’ve moved into the final stages of packing our house. As a result of that our food supply at home is rapidly dwindling which sucks because I really dislike eating out. The house is also a cluttered mess which is annoying but it’s expected since boxes are quickly filling the place to the brim.

I should also take a moment to thank Sarah for doing most of the packing at our house (98% +/- 2%) . I couldn’t do it without you, babe.

Finally I’ll leave you with the Rick Ross print I made yesterday for the 12 days project. Isn’t totally bad-ass? He’s building a dream, WITH ELEVATORS IN IT.

We made it to Colorado Springs!

We finally made it here after a long car ride. Today were going house hunting, to the bike shop so i can buy mountain bike shoes, and then we`re drinking with the family! I’m also making my first post from Jesse`s tablet, its kind of a pain to type on but all in all its great. I`ll add some photos later once i actually take some, until then stay hungry you tasty little children.

Holy crap, We’re actually moving!

We’re moving to Colorado Springs and we can hardly believe it! Now that July has come around there is only one month until our move, and even fewer days of work. Sarah and I are going to get packing a little faster so we’re not having to scramble when the 26th rolls around. Our house is currently in that pre-moving wreck phase, where there are boxes everywhere and things tend to be just a little dirtier than usual. Small price to pay for finally getting to move on from San Angelo. I’ve grown to enjoy this town more than I did when I first came here, but it isn’t where I want to spend the rest of my life by any means either. I’ll have to write a post tomorrow about my list of things to do in San Angelo before we leave.

I looked at the calender on Monday and realized that with my vacation (Pre-moving trip to find work and a house) I only have 12 more days of work at Glazer’s.

From this realization the “12 Days” project was born. Each day I will design a piece of art on 8.5″x14″ cardstock and print 3 copies of it. The first print goes to whoever wants it (Jesse has claimed both so far), the second goes on the wall in the shop behind the printer, and I’m keeping the third piece for myself.

The only rule I’ve imposed on myself is that the final piece must have the remaining days number on the piece somewhere. As for ideas I’m jotting down notes in my journal and then letting things evolve on the page as I work with it that day. I’m pleased with the way the first pieces have turned out and I’m thinking this entire project will turn out nicely.
