Thursday Ride With Justin

Last night was cold as all get out. Even with that being the case Justin and I went on a little ride from Gasworks to Ballard. It wasn't far - but we picked up the pace and rode.

Mini adventures are sometimes the best. We stopped in for a drink at Kings and had a good heart to heart. I'm happy to know that bikes can bring folks together.

- keep riding

Photoshoot - It Was Perfect!

I had a lot of fun doing this photo shoot with Jodi.  She came all the way from New York.  Just kidding, she was here anyways visiting her family - just good timing.  The lighting was perfect and balanced and the location was crisp and perfect.  I'm really bad about giving modeling direction, so she just did her thing and it worked out amazingly.  

New product will be posted on the website shortly.  I'm pretty pumped on these new combinations.  They all turned out great.  These are also available at the Whole Foods Market in Roosevelt Square, Seattle Washington and Whole Foods Market in Bellevue Washington.  The photos were from their orders that got shipped out.

Monday, February 9, 2009 - Kind of a big deal

Yeah, so this is a pretty big deal to me. is a pretty amazing website that has some really impressive featured artist on it.  Friends like Derek Albeck have been featured on it among many others.  A very pretty girl named Allison O’Connor has this great BLOG called 24:00.  She was the one to snap the shot, wrote the BLOG and submit it.  From there thought it was rad enough to put on their front page.

As of right now I'm still in shock over it.  I have some large installations going up this weekend, and this makes me want to go do WAY more now.  She even got a picture of one of my mustache boxed installations.  So freakin awesome!

This is a repost from Kerry:

Our bikes were stolen at about 7:30 pm Fri 2/6 in front of the Ballard Goodwill. My bike is a silver Marin track bike (50cm) with a black stickered spengel tri-spoke in front. It had drop bars wrapped in blue, and the downtube and toptube were wrapped in flourescent yellow duct tape. Felix’s bike was pink, about 60cm, with custom paintings all over. It had pink powdercoated handlebars and seatpost. The wheels were black deep vs with pink iro hubs. the wheels were wrapped in pink and yellow duct tape. PLEASE if you see anything on craigslist that matches this description, or see them around town PLEASE call the Seattle Police, the case number is 2009-045823. the phone # is 206-684-0850. thanks

Bikes, Art, Sandwich & Typography

Tonight was our thursday night ride. We went to the Pioneer Art Walk and hung out for a bit. I like the Western Building a lot. Got to see my friend Dave (check out his work at Starheadboy) and talk to him for a bit. I'm going to pick up one of his painted bricks.  I did not have much cash or a bag with me tonight.  They are super awesome and can not wait to add it to my art collection.  After the ride we went up to the Honey Hole on Capitol Hill to meet up with Domino, his lady and their friend from New York.  I had a tasty sandwich for dinner with tempeh; so good.  At that point I rode back down to Pioneer Square to catch up with my friend Mary at some fashion party thing.  Then back home and up Avalon.  I love hate that hill.

My night is going to be finished off working on this freelance job I got for a supplement company.  Holy crap!  I forgot how much I love typography and cleaning type up.  With my own work I don't do anything with type, and I feel like with my old corporate job that is almost all I did.  Funny how those things creep up on you.  I'm making the design tighter and tiny bit cleaner.  It is good for the purpose of it.  So only minor tweaks.  I'm also setting it up for printing and cropping.  It's time consuming for sure, but I do miss this kind of work.  To be honest, it is so easy for me... I think that is why I like.  It involves almost zero effort for me, just busy work like an assembly line.  That might sound weird for a semi-creative process but it is true.  I'm going to be stoked to go in to some of the supplement stores around town and see them up and out.  

Today was awesome!
