I saw that it was new to Netflix watch instantly so I started watching it.. YIKES!! I'm so into it but it's not like I needed any added anxiety.. not that I'll be here or anything. The show basically documents what will happen to the world if no one was on the Earth. It shows the destruction of famous structures, artworks, and everything else. It even talks about what might end up killing us. NO!! (breathe in, out, in, out..)I'm learning other things as well.. like the "immortality drive". WTF! The show also recognized cryogenics.. that's just creepy.
I represented Zza's wine bar at the Women of Taste event done by Girls Inc. this last Saturday. I have attended the last couple of years but this was the first year I worked. I actually preferred working than indulging like previous years.
The event was held on the rooftop of the Kaiser Permanente building in Oakland. fancy lights on the buildings..
The ladies... it was a fun night and I look forward to it next year.
Last night I went to my one and only baseball game this year. I used to go all the time.. now not so much. I got some free tickets from someone at work and took my friend Hollyce with me. The game itself was pretty boring, the A's played Texas. You could tell that the season is almost over.. the players don't seem to have any gusto. All that aside.. it was fun to act like a dork and eat bad food.
Here are some pictures from the night and even a video!
A fun "artsy" shot on the way there: From the Bart you have to walk across this little bridge, this is the view from that bridge. Let's go swimming..
Hollyce hamming it up with the Raiders sign. me hamming it up with the Oakland sign. oh man.. belly bombers!
The moon during the game.. holy crap! Which way is the moon? Hollyce was on rapid fire with her camera.. fun. Big Steppin' at the Colosseum
As you can see.. being a dork comes very naturally to me.
Hollyce's last shot of the evening.
I think going to the A's game was more about us being dorks and eating really bad food and expensive beer than the game itself.
first things first.. nothing beats Laura Veirs Pandora station on a Sunday morning... yes please.
I'm loving the feeling of the studio/office. I finally got to do some work yesterday and the space is so different now. I don't even mind the smell of exhaust from my ghetto neighbors hoochie van as he parks it.. Okay that a lie.. it's rather annoying, in fact they are annoying in general and so, so, so ghetto. (tangent done) Anyway.. the studio is coming along but rather nicely and I'm very into it, my heart is signing with the space and vibe.
Here is the desk before: (I have two desks, one for computer stuff, one for art - this is the art desk) I was recently inspired by a old acquaintance Rachel Peddersen to take pictures of my desktop. I think she is a brilliant artist and love following her on facebook and what not. I have always loved typewriters and seeing that she had one on her desktop made me do a little squeal of joy. (in no way will I steal Rachel's desktop series for profit - it's only for my own perspective.)
I got lots and lots of canvas painted: Like my recycling method - old paper bags for drying.
The show on the 1st of October will be a mash up of my works. I will not only have the "diminishing technology" series, I will also be showing some of my heart boxes.
Here are some cutesy sketches for "diminishing technology":
I have enjoyed the fun loving aspect of these two series but my heart is pulling back to more introspective things. I want to get back to book making and shadow box work. I will keep up with the oldies but I feel a shift.. which is good. Not only am I changing..the weather is. I put together some different paper to get weather worn for future work. These bundles are hanging from my back porch. I can't wait to see what will happen and how they will look when I collect them.
