In the studio...

I have two big wholesale orders that I am working on right now - one of them is for a great store in Berkeley, CA called Treehouse Green Gifts, and the other is for a gentleman in Montreal who is getting ready to open an upcycled-arts gallery. In total, it's about 40 records worth of Eye Pop Art. I am doing my best to get these cranked out so I can focus on creating new pieces for the upcoming SE Area Art Walk. Plus the band is going into a REAL studio this weekend to make our own record! And my Cool School classes at Duniway start up in a couple of weeks as well (I'll be doing another mural painting class, and continuing to be the advisor for the school newspaper, the Duniway Dragonian).

Busy, busy, busy! When I have this much going on, I sometimes invite my friends over to help me paint. I was so glad that Melodie was able to put in a couple of hours of pure YELLOW.
I had already drawn the design out so she just had to look at a picture of the finished product and go for it. I still have to fill in more areas and do the black outline and everything, but it is just so great to have a little bit of extra help!
This is about what my workspace looks like right now:Oh, by the way - I just noticed that I have surpassed 100 blog posts! Yay for me! So, is anybody reading this? Leave me a comment and let me know you're there!!!

I read every post! Sorry I don't comment as often as I'd like. I try to spread my alotted "blog time" around each day.

Congrats on reaching the 100-post milestone, and good luck with all these projects!

I'm here, for the first time!

Looking at your work, though, gives me the shivers as I've got a huge, and revered, vinyl collection. Makes me wonder how all these records ended up on your worktable!

Congrats on all your projects -- busy is GOOD!
