Good evening! We completed stage deux of the jardin this weekend.
With Lorenzo and Adam's help we leveled the dirt and hauled the gravel and sand into the garden (from the street and through the apartment!) and spread the gravel out ready for stage tres (spreading the sand and paving the patio).
I will be contacting a local stone merchant tomorrow and gathering details on price and delivery availability for the weekend (weather permitting). I apologize for the photo as the camera's battery died as I took this shot just before the light went!
Have a stoneage evening.

Or rather Bessie and I are taking advantage of the glorious weather tonight and going for dinner a Sweet Water Restaurant on North 6TH. They a nice garden at the the back of the restaurant and a great Argentinian grass fed steak, yummy!
Have a good evening!

Thank you MAN!!! That's the name of the new group I'm working on, comic book inspired tongue in cheek statements on modern life and love.
I started out looking at Roy Lichtenstein's Pop paintings, which I love, but the characters seemed too dated. Then I remembered one of my favorite record sleeves "Goo" by Sonic Youth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goo_(album)). This seemed a lot more relevant to who were are now and what we have to say.
So this is my spin on the hipster world of Brooklyn...

I had a busy but productive week at work, we got the Payless contract with flying colors thanks to my shoe print. Apparently it was an emotional exchange on both ends with Payless's people all finding something that they really loved about the print.
We also won our third game at Kickball on Thursday night 10-4 so we are now 2nd place in the league and in good shape as we approach the play-offs.
Lorenzo came by on Friday to stay for the weekend and help out in le Jardin. We took up the turf in preparation for the patio we are going to lay down next week. The neighbors took the turf from us for their garden so it was a super green recycling day!
Liz and Antonio came by for the afternoon to hangout after the garden was finished. Antonio and I did a little stencil work on his skateboard with some spray paint which I think he really enjoyed. We all ended the day at Du Mont for dinner and headed home to collapse into Sunday!
Have a great week!

Bethzaira and Thingy went for their second "anatomical" sonogram today, our little man is doing great! He's so cute when you see him moving around on screen although he was a little bit stubborn this morning when they wanted him to roll over for his photo's but I guess that's quite normal for a 21 week old!
We have a good collection of profile shots now and a wicked leg shot, he's going to be tall I think...(click on the images for an enlarged view)

Today amongst other things I worked on a print we're doing for Payless Shoes. I had originally worked up a print with shoes I pulled from their site but the buyer came back and requested I add in some Manolo Blahnik's...
I'm pretty sure you'll ever find anything nearly as nice as a pair of Manolo Blahnik's at Payless still the print looks good!
