Q: dude, why are you eating at outerlands every day?
A: see above

scenes from a film in which i feel like a crazy person

double triples

hey look: it's your entire life in a big pile in a room. and somewhere there's those pants that were your best friend about two years ago. those pants that set you free. and one day you will be together again.

the black and the white

it's two witches either in love or just wrestling around.

bonus gratuitous photo by my friend ryan of a young andy and nat on a shred break. i am pretty sure i broke my arm about 20 minutes after this photo was taken. you can see that brooding blog gleam in the shadows. maybe 10 years ago? 11? check out andy's sweet ponytail.

middle living: moments from a weekend in the greater bi-state region

i've been friends with this goon for almost 20 years. here he expertly nurtures multiple children with grace and ease.

orange handle. this guy was really nice and really excited to make our dreams of having giant buttons with our faces on it come true.

the wiener's circle

hey serena, look: your block went to chicago.

me and abby g went to look at the big buckminster fuller exhibit. one word: dymaxionalicious. (oh and i also went to a man's barber who cut all my hair off and shaved me with a straight razor and lather and the works. it was intense.)

banana licuado. i'm sorry california, other states have tacos that are just as good.

that's right, her name is DORKA (look at the lower right) and we are in love.

words to live by on ghazal's wall

-saw the rad dudes in vetiver play the best show i've seen of their's perhaps? it's a fact.
-looked at a bunch of 70s skin mags and you know what: the articles actually were really good back then.
-played pool and listened to jukebox records
-took a nap
-ate a corn spinach onion cheese omelette then listened to bruce springsteen the whole ride home in the rain

hiss golden messenger

this is the art for the record "country hai east cotton" by Hiss Golden Messenger, some good friends and tight buds. (this is the cover)

we took a while on it, or to be fair, i took a long time. but it was worth it and it came out looking good. (this is the back. they are all numbered out of 500)

more hand lettering! leave the perfection for those nerds in the helvetica movie! (just kidding that movie is pretty great but that german dude needs to RELAX)(this is from the inside)

if you're feeling cosmic plains feelings, i recommend it. (this is also from the inside. did i mention it's a nice paper gatefold printed by the lovelies at stumptown?)
