Here are two pieces that I’ve got for sale in the Light Side / Dark Side: A Star Wars Art Show” tonight at Warlock Labs in Seattle. Come by and see work by my very talented friends! It is but one part of a very large art-walk in the Greenwood + Phinney Ridge neigborhoods, which I’ma go ahead and link you to right here.  (Warlock Labs is number 13 on the map there.)

Our bees are making a ton of honey! So much, in fact, that they were honey-bound and ran out of room for bees. That’s something I should have managed before it happened, but the summer got away from me!

FREE SKETCHES!

I’ve had this project in mind for a while now, and there’s a few reasons I’m finally pulling the trigger on it today. For one thing, it’s my birthday, and I like to do nice things for folks on my birthday, so … free art, right? That seems nice.

The other reason is I’ve been sitting on this useless P.O.Box for a year now. When my dad died a while back, I was made the executor of his estate. I set up this box to handle all the necessary correspondence, and my trips to the post office were just the most depressing parts of my week - it was all bills, notices, legal documents, subscriptions I had to cancel, porn (my dad sure loved porn!), mail from his lawyers and accountants and such. All of these reminders twice or three times a week that my dad was dead, which kept making me miserable even months after he passed away.

That poor P.O.Box was just brimming with depressed negativity, I figure, and I wanted to do something positive to clean out all the bad juju before I gave it up and let some other poor sap have it. So now I’m inviting everyone from anywhere in the world to send a postcard to that address and get a free sketch in return! It’ll be a cleansing exercise … you know, for the post office box, y’see.

Feel free to share this post and spread it around!

This is excellent. Everybody do this!

Over the holiday weekend I made a Berlese funnel just for fun, and grabbed a Tupperware full of soil from my grandpa’s place. These are some of the many many little arthropods I found. Mites, springtails, and a pseudoscorpion!
