Back to the Drawing Board

Went to a sneak preview of Jeff Soto's upcoming solo show a couple of Sundays ago. Jeff always amazes and inspires me. After seeing his work I felt a fire brewing under my butt and needed to get back to work myself. Took just a couple of pics there. Here's Jeff inside the studio
And here's a view from the outside
And here's Dave Chung and Michael bringin' sexy back
It was cool to finally get to meet the Chung face to face. Super cool guy!
We didn't get to stay too long because we had to pick the boys up. We had dropped them off for a couple of hours at Mike's parents' house. It made it possible to actually get to go SEE Jeff's work and take time to appreciate it, instead of chasing Dylan around and missing out on everything.
Dyl's been much better lately. Lovin' his brother. Bodie looks a bit like a deer caught in headlights here... we lovingly refer to him as Grumpy McGrump. Can't wait for those smiles to start coming!
Dylan's been lots of fun. We started him in daycare two times a week. It's actually at our neighbor's house, two doors down. So he's not far away, and he seems to dig on going over there to play for a few hours. Plus it gives me a little bit of time to get back to painting, and catch a break from Thomas the Train. Here's a sketch for my next piece.
It's going to be an ad for Sausage. I like to get the main image transfered onto the wood, then kind of ad-lib the type and additional stuff. I'll start painting her tomorrow. I also have a phone interview tomorrow morning for a Mag called "Stretching Canvas". It's a new publication started by Chris Pfouts, the editor of International Tattoo Art. Should be cool. I'm a little nervous though, because I haven't had real sleep in awhile... I'm just hoping I don't come off like a total ass.

I can't help it...maybe it's because I just read your last post, but are you sure the fire under your butt isn't the remnants of the bladder infection lingering?
