hazy day

It was a hazy day in Seoul

We puttered around the palace

There was lunch in a little dive that served this wonderfulness:

Lounging and waiting in the Seoul airport

(I became addicted to that sugary instant coffee and nicked a whole handful from the business-class lounge we were chillin' in.)

Lounging in the San Francisco airport

12 hours later, not sure what day or where I am. Do I want healthy oj, or wake-up coffee, or just more beer?? All that's certain is that I absolutely want cookies.

There and back again

So, long flights and heavy luggage and a couple days of meetings later - back in hot hot Chicago. A classy and sweet gentleman has a 1-am ice cold summer shanty waiting for me.

And now, I believe I'll eat something that isn't fermented octopus, and get back to work. Draw draw paint paint paint. Back at it.
Food-blogs to follow in the next week or so as I have time (ha.)

don't blink

My early morning started sweetly - well rested and happy dreams... and... the instant coffee comes with a wee bit of sugar

Noon, the scenery and my brain

Early evening, a restaurant famous for Guts.
Laughter and Conversation and Intestines and Soju for hours.

And later, this.

oh, BTW

Seoul is pretty rad.

holy crap it's friday

Well, that week went lightening fast.

If you're in Chicago tomorrow, you should go check out what the Doom Kids are up to, tomorrow's show looks to be amazing. RELENTLESS.

I'll be swinging by that later in the month, but it doesn't look like I'm making the opening...

...because I am on "get-shit-done" lock-down the next few days, and will be just painting it up here in my little treehouse. Catching up after last week's travel and a brain-cramp of a day-job-work-week.

work work work.

Tomorrow is email day! If you think you should get an email from me, you will, and you will get it tomorrow. Ha!

Because, I have been out and about. Last week I worked far too much, slept far far too little, and then flew to Ohio and stayed in a haunted manor in the middle of the woods that were in the middle of nowhere.

I'm not sure if my life continues to be pleasantly odd, of if that's just the sleep deprivation.

I can't show you in-process photos for the big stitched-up thing I'm making for this July (yet), but I can show you the delicious lunch I had with Lana (btw check out her classy new website!) while out searching for materials for it.

The rest of the weekend was working on drawings and running errands and driving and everything besides catching up on sleep.
With the brief interruption of an amazing sunday night dinner.

Every time we go to FishBar, I leave very happy.

I'm not sure if I can show you in-progress photos (yet) of the portrait commissions that I have going. So in the meantime, keep looking at this other painting I'm doing.

And now I am going to sleep and I will talk to you tomorrow.
