Human Confusion

Here’s a doodle on a sticky note from yesterday.  I think I may actually expand upon this one.

1981 Excella II

December 21, 2010

We went to see our first airstream on Saturday!  A 1981 Excella II –  it hadn’t been used for about a year and was a little run down, but still awesome.

Also discovered Airstream Forums and spend huge quantities of time on there.  Not only is there everything you could ever want to know about Airstreams, there are also super friendly Airstream owners willing to drive out and inspect Airstreams with you!

So next week we’re going back to check it out with an inspector.

Hopefully he’ll say “this is an awesome trailer, buy it now.”

Couldn’t keep it to myself

December 10, 2010

Under the guise of being festive I’ve decided to post some pics of Elie as a kid.  I don’t think he reads this blog anyway, so no harm done.

Here’s Elie and Santa.   French Santa looks a lot more sophisticated than American Santa for some reason – maybe it’s the hood and the vaguely pope-like cloak he’s wearing.  His beard is so rectangular and orderly!

Here’s another one…just because.  I mean, what kind of person would I be if I kept this kind of cuteness to myself?

Don’t you just want to squeeze him?

I have a crazy amount of paper scraps with things scrawled on them, here’s an0ther one.   Three blog entries in three days – this is a record!

This was the original drawing for the album art concept.

If you can read the writing on this it says “an event” and “who are you? why do I know?”  I have no idea what I was talking about, but it was probably pretty cool.

Tree

Here’s an old painting from a while back – I think it was shortly before moving to England and meeting Elie.  Guess I’ve always had a thing for trees.

Effortless blogging

December 5, 2010

My blog has been looking really sparse lately – mainly because I’m too lazy to write blog entries – hey,  it takes a lot of effort!  Who knew being engaging and interesting and witty AND grammatically correct was so hard?

So in an effort to blog more regularly (without really trying) I’ve decided to post some of my drawings.  It’s a mode of  communication that doesn’t require much effort on my part since I’m doodling whenever there’s a pen in my hand…and it probably ends up being way more honest than using language.

Here’s something I’ve had lying around on a little scrap of paper for awhile.

I’ve been meaning to do something with it but I really am lazy – and whenever I try to re-draw or paint things I’ve previously drawn they end up losing something along the way.
