This week, I am planning to do a hackathon, Tuesday & Wednesday. Me & Amy. Two days of total immersion on our sites! I am soooooo pumped from just getting off the best commission yet in Seattle. Two amazing murals back to back, shout out thanks to Stan Shaufler for hiring me for such an AMAZING gig!
Been having a swimmingly good time painting octopus tentacles to decorate a sailboat in Shilshole Marina in Ballard.
It’s an amazing project & I’m thrilled with the opportunity to collaborate & execute. The first mural wraps around the mast. There are two more paintings that decorate the ceiling of the main sleeping cabin & entryway.
So much opportunity for creative visual expression on one of my favorite themes “The Sea”; “El Mar” definitely with a touch of whimsy & lots of room for imagination. Will post more pics as the project evolves. As it turns out, I was just swimming in the ocean with my bud yesterday, playing around in the waves with a surfboard around Westport. It was invigorating to be sure!
: attraction: facial, energetic, synthesis, shared energy & experience, inspiration, mutual appreciation.
I wanna play games & laugh with the beauties here. wow. #poetry
Sk8 night tonight at El Castillo
Twitter did this today, so I posted my poem on my own site. Si se puede comrades!
Dev life is flexin because in Seattle, if you can work remote here then you are. And the rest of us who’s jobs involved mixing better go online to be rustle up them duckets.
Me & Kayla are in an art directory book! See pic.
I moved to a new house (:(: And Amy came over & helped arrange all the furniture. It took hours.
I’ve been playing with Igor on violin & Brian on bass! We are playing Tuesday at Cafe Racer! This is a wonderful sweet thing!
I am working on building up my routine again. Tonight I am staying out at Amy’s in Newcastle. We have been having a workparty/ dinner party. And I learned to play Eukre cause both these lovelies are from Michigan.
I am feeling wayyyy more inspired on working on my projects. I also want to totally get back into my early morning routine. I feel like ALL the right influences are coming my way to get it going. Definitely on the UpSwing <3
The 12 days of Christmas are upon us. I printed up some art prints for last minute holiday gift giving (which in my book lasts 12 days- till Jan 6th). I’m selling them out of my busking case in downtown Seattle on Christmas Eve.
They’re 5$ printed on heavyweight card stock & signed by the artist (moi). If you would like to meet me tomorrow & get one please text me: 248-688-0246 & we can meet up around West Lake/Pike Market area. Otherwise, please get in touch: aesdiopod [at] riseup [dot] net, to arrange an online transaction. I can send out an email announcing your gift! As always, thanks for supporting local artists!
Fall is here, hear the yell…. What’s good in Cascadia is there is a ginormous park by la casa complete with high cliffs, essentially. I am making going there part of my regular routine. It sounds corney but there really is a bounty of wilderness in my backyard. It’s a little hike to get there but then, no one around and it’s pure prana, watch the leaves fall out of the trees peace. Good stuff. Seahawks played on Sunday and I was there to rock the vibe and collect a few tips while I was at it. Follow your bliss internet massive!
I have written a handful of songs so far living in Seattle, one is called “Areal View” and here is a painting that I did in the spirit of that tune. It’s about getting some distance on any troubling feeling and steering one’s mind more toward the ZONE.
My band is Pixie Dust (aka Touched with Fire), but Pixie Dust is shining through more than ever as of late.
More works coming soon! I have a new amazing workspace that it took a while to build up just right– So grateful for that!
