Where oh where has my little blog gone…?

…the one with the waggily tail?

Wow. Just realizing how out of it I’ve been as far as the blog world goes. I’ve been slammed, I’m been slack, I’ve been full of many excuses. A lot has happened from the last post, so let’s jump right into it.

Let’s see, Ginger (my lovely wife) hijacked my last post to tell you all about the Keep-A-Breast show, which went well. I should back up a step and comment on the fantastic job she did on the post. My blog entries will pretty much always pale in comparison to hers. She has started her own blog and is much more professional and punctual with her blogification. Check it out when you can- rambleramble.com. Nicely laid out and her excellent writing makes for a good read. I’m a bit biased though. Did I mention she’s my wife?

Let’s see…what else?

Oh yes, the Deep Water group show at C.A.V.E. Gallery in Venice happened a few weeks ago. Never got around to posting about it, see the aforementioned to slackassery. You can see a nice video of the show, as well as a full gallery of the paintings. I’m quite proud of a brand new watercolor I did for the show. Haven’t done a watercolor in quite a while and enjoyed working on this one. Resined it onto a plank of wood when I was done. Still experimenting with the resining, but I’m really enjoying it. Expect more resined drawings and watercolors in the future.

What else, what else?

Oh, the Beasts of Burden show was at Subtext last Friday. The featured toy was the MIAO cat and mouse combo from Zakkamono. A great show as usual, Don and Dylan are always great, and of course props to George and Gabriel who are always on top of it. “It” of course, being awesomeness. Can’t mention the show without calling out the married pair Zakka and Rae. This super fun and creative duo comprise Zakkamono- the company responsible for the design and production of the MIAO kitty cat and mouse. Both super neat people, both with fantastic MIAO customs in the show. Check out some of the shots:

That’s about it for now. I’m using this long post as an excuse to get my lazy butt back into bloggerizing gear. A little easier now that we have a new Mac, but that’s another story…
