A friend of mine is hosting a baby shower soon and she asked me of all people to put my fantastic design skills to use and make an invitation. Her concept was a bit odd: use the image of the sloth hugging a cat and include the phrase “Please join us in toasting the future president” at the top. I followed her instructions to the T even though I still have no idea what sloths, and cats, and hugs have to do with presidents, or the future, or babies. Well, I guess I can see the link between babies and hugs…. Anyhow, I think the invite turned out OK. The results are below (Some names and some addresses have been changed.)
I had a lot of fun the other day performing with The Bushwick Book Club Seattle (just take a look at the video!). For those of you who don’t know, The Bushwick Book Club Seattle is a Seattle based non-profit that puts on these awesome book inspired music events (they do lots of other stuff too). The basic concept for each show is:
- a book is chosen
- artists (and audience members) read the book
- artists write an original song inspired by the book
- artists perform their song for a live audience (who have hopefully read the book too)
- audience claps
This is the current Google Street View shot of the house I grew up in taken in August of 2011. If you look closely you can see my Dad. And that loud booming sound you are hearing somewhere off in the distance is me laughing my ass off. I love the internet. God Bless America!
Here is a fun little animation I made today. My favorite part is the sound effects. Go ahead, hit the mute button and then play it… I dare you…
See what I mean? …it’s not nearly as good. Now don’t ever watch this on mute again.
