Good evening. Here’s an inviting space: a darkened warehouse.

I took the time to document some old creative output of mine for days when I don’t have the time or gumption to post something new. A day like today for instance.
So here is today’s yesterday project; it’s something that you could do yourself with only a pencil & box-cutter and a failure to understand that you could seriously injure yourself:
It looks like the meat may have gone bad. A pink or red color pencil would work much better, though I suppose you could paint it. It’s also missing many of the trappings common to the modern weiner. A miniature set of condiments, along with one of those paper boats would round this project out nicely.
I’ve talked myself into it. Maybe I’ll do that sometime in June (nice Hot Dog Weather!)
I was at Blake’s last night, talking music &c. I recorded about two minutes of classicalia; equal parts toccata, moto perpetuo, and recitative. Direct download link: mike_toccata_improv.mp3, or just click to listen:
I hope to further develop some of these themes and see if I can mold it into a finished piece.
Playing with some 1/16″ graph paper last Sunday, I made this:
It’s nice – I’ll probably use it in this new flash puzzle I’m building – but I didn’t feel that was enough for a blog post, so I made it into a font you can download & install.

Sometimes you begin an illustration with an idea of how it should turn out, but your hands just start making stuff up & you get something even better.
My scanner was a great help in making the sun glare in the clouds look just right.
Hope you like it. Hope you’ll say so even more.
Yo Ho, me hearties. Here’s a quick one for you – The Sailing Ship Columbia. I’ve copied the angle from a great twilight photograph of the ship’s rigging. I saw it on miceage.com, but I wasn’t able to track it down today for you.
It’s sharpie & pastel on vellum. Enjoy – Or else.
By the way, what are you up to these days? Yes you. The one who instead of leaving a comment sends me an email. I’m always interested in hearing what other people are working – oh! that reminds me:
My friend Blake could use some honest feedback on a new music project he’s working on. Listen to his demo track Crumbs at myspace.com/gingercube If you have a myspace account (a pox on you) friend him or leave a comment. If not, let me know what you think & I’ll pass it along. That track gets stuck in my head.
Blake might help me record some stuff of my own for your enjoyment as well. I have some MP3s from old bands I’ve been in, let me know if you want a listen.
I helped Janis with math homework.
