mock up

I've been doing a bit more
planning than I used to do.
The text is inconsequential
I just threw in some Japanese
and then wrote my notes for
the final on the red... there will
be text there on the final, I'm
just not sure what it'll say yet.

Art Walk was crazy busy, and
just crazy in general. So many
beautiful women... I wish I could
draw them all for my 100 girls
book I want to do. I saw one girl
who had the worlds greatest nose!
Weird, I know, but it really was.

Thanks to everyone who came out
and fuck everyone who didn't.

If I owe you a print, they are
coming soon... sorry for the delays.

that's so great, Sail! I wish I could have been there too. I'd have taken one of your business cards ;)

Good to hear the walk went well. However, you should have taken a photo of the world's greatest nose with your all new LG VX9400.

Oh, and I likey the picture. Nice to see there was no wanton use of shmooshing. ;)

Thanks, guys... I wish you all could come, and I could get you drunk on free wine! It's a blast. Like a giant party... with art. Well, I guess that's exactly what it is.

Robb, that would have been creepy... and your print is going out next week. Also, this is a smoosh free zone!

I see your point sir...saying to a randoms girl "Um...excuse me me lady...but your nose is fabulous...may I take a picture of it?" would be creepy.

Take your time with the print also. I'd hate to have it shmooshed due to it being rushed.

that book must be quiet the sight when you are thumbing through it and see this great piece :)

It's ok. It's full of more failed attempts, half ideas and sketches than stuff like this. Though, I hadn't used it in a while until recently. So, the next one will probably be more fun to flip through now that I've gotten better.

It says 'ego'. I dunno, I was thinking about ego and it looked nice in Japanese, so I stuck it on there. Nothing here is final. Even the girl is pretty different in the final I'm working on.

thanks for the easter cheer! It's so funny...I've been getting tons of hits this past month from people spelling Easter wrong, and then for whatever reason, they'll click my blog in their search results for stuff like Ester bunnies, or Ester projects.

Hope you had a good one Sail. I didn't dress up and walk around town with a basket - did you?
