hey you in australia: this is going to happen! i'm in this art show with a bunch of great people, there's a ton of bands, and t-moe is going to do "live painting"! also, you may recognize the some lettering and some imagery on this poster: that's because i worked on those things with the nice people at sugar mountain. if i was in australia i would go. let's all get a boat and sail over. pick me up in fifteen minutes.

saturday night i am taking part in an art auction to benefit earthquake relief in japan. it was put together by some good buddies and includes a whole bunch of incredibly talented artists. if you're in los angeles, this event is going to be amazing and you'll probably end up meeting an art hero. i'll be there in spirit in the form of a small one legged pigeon who will be loitering on the red curb out in front of jack in the box.

-spring is here! website is done! juices are flowing! wind is blowing! let's do it!
-i saw mike watt + the missing men play watt's new opera last night. i have no qualms in saying that it was the most inspiring and thrilling piece of art i've experienced in years and years. i honestly can't remember the last time i left a performance or gallery or rock and roll show so pumped on the possibilities of life and creativity. there are very few people in the world i am a true fan of, but this dude is the real deal. i hope i have one-tenth the energy and life in me when i get to be his age. i got to hang out for a couple minutes with him alone and the amount of knowledge, stories, and wisdom that poured out of that dudes face in those moments reminded me of the history, magic, and wonder that's out there and in here. whew. so serious.
-i'm beginning construction tonight on the "grampa's waterfall" skate obstacle. more to come on this.
-spent some quality time with somebody up there in years lately? maybe you should try it sometime. i tell you, a lot of things that seem to trouble you sort of melt away and things can become pretty clear. we should really respect and treasure those of us who find themselves at the end of their respective journeys.
-"that was reverse jazz!" - snap
-i shaved my beard and i feel refreshed. sun's out = guns out

looky here: i got a package from the kind folks at Art Park in Australia
and they made their first journal and put me in it next to kill pixie and surrounded by a ton of other amazingly talented artists. this thing is newsprint and nicely sized for the coffee table or to hide behind a wall street journal if you're faking it. and i think it's free? check it.

i just dug these out from a dark corner somewhere. i made these drawings as a loose narrative for a book commission that ended up never going any further. kind of stoked on finding these after forgetting all about them. my babies have come home.
