Street Anatomy has a good collection of anatomy as design elements. This Kidney faced chap has me sold on the benefits of Orpizin.

Boeing Surplus will be closing its doors in late December, transferring the teat of the military industrial complex from the people to 3rd party profiteers. This is the best place in the Seattle area to buy giant pieces of aluminum, honeycomb, aviation grade high density foam, air tools, and oversized drill bits. Please pay your respects before its too late.

New Print, Still under construction

Radix, 2007
15in x 10in
linocut on watercolor paper
edition of 50 with 1 artist proof
(not yet completed)

I've been working on a linocut for the last couple weeks, and its now to the point of trying to figure out what I'm doing. The print itself measures 8in x 5in, and is slightly dimensional with rich, thick block printing enamel. You can see by the photo below that I am extremely well suited for print making, and have all the necessary tools.

The Secret Lives of Single Cells

I've started a new series of drawings of organelles with mad personality ...or maybe thats just what I see in them. Single cells don't have personality.

Viveza gets press

Carrie Scott wrote this fair summation of the Viveza mission statement for the Seattle Weekly. In way, I think its the worst possible press anybody could ever get, though its not exactly a "bad review." She didn't misquote, or misrelate. We got two giant photos and basically the entire arts section for the week, but man...its really terrible press.

My drive home: Quagmired in hate

This tale begins like any great tale. On the Microsoft Campus in Redmond. Only 18 short miles from Renton, which is only 22 short miles from Ballard, which is the route I must take.
It takes me 2.5 hours.

Homemade Conrete Mushroom: STOLEN!

Our beacon of joy and whimsy, a collaboratively constructed concrete mushroom, was stolen from our front yard. If you see it in someone else's yard, please take a crap on their lawn.


Having now spoken with most of our neighbors, they all loved the mushroom and seem distraught at its disappearance. All except our elusive next door neighbor, who is fixing his house up for sale. SUSPICIOUS!

God Bless us all

This is a picture of the final explosion at the end of the finale in the fireworks show over Lake Union. The fading smoke and final explosion in WAMU's gaudy, musically synced fireworks show, struck me as the most American Moment of the evening. Especially as translated through my piece of shit cell phone camera.
God Bless!

Space Junk Spotting is Awesome

Space Junk Spotting is an awesome project.

The project shown here is composed of mechanical and programming equipment linked to a database at a U.S. government-owned space observatory; this database contains the fullest possible data on the extent of the pollution and presents remarkable scientific methods for determining the position of space junk.
You download a 3D map of the large ring of crap that we have given Earth right into your GoogleEarth locations. Do it.(link)

Seattle Power Tool Drag Races

My entry this year, a 4-wheel drive plastic truck driven by a high speed hand drill, failed early and weakly. I slipped a gear and melted the plastic differential. Video to follow...

Neptune: Unleashed

Our puppy Neptune is now 16 weeks old. Old enough, and substantially vaccinated, to venture into the world. Here he is, eating moss.
