Image for May 28, 2011 - Bob and his Tiki

Was hiking through my neighborhood today and came across Bob the woodcarver guy working on the big Tiki that I have posted about before. He's a good guy, passionate about his work and encouraging to me to join him in the splintery realm. I told him of my first attempt at woodcarving, the little fish and will bring it by and show it off to him soon. It is almost finished. He's made a lot of progress on the big Tiki since I last posted in here about it. One day I'll be standing next to my own giant Tiki.

Here's a quick doodle I did of the fish I have been doing as a woodcarving.

Image for May 25, 2011 - Dinner Out

We went out for dinner tonight at a neighborhood favorite place, "Zia Maire's". My nephew Jake in Wisconsin sent us a big gift certificate for that restaurant for Christmas and we needed to use it up before it expired. Tonight was the night. These flowers were outside the front door and visual sum up what a wonderful evening we had.

Things Fall Apart

Found this animation while surfing around on my lunch break:


Worn Out from Ryan Kothe on Vimeo.

A beautiful piece that reminds me of the Brothers Quay's work.

Image for 5-22-11 - No Pregnant Women!

So what would have a "No Pregnant Women" icon on it? Anyone? Ah, come on, take a guess.

OK, here's a hint; I brought it back from Scotland.
