Out of the office at 4:30 yesterday. I walked over to the studio and picked up a few tallboys. Got there, changed into shorts and flipflops, got to work on the tallboys and finished a postcard. (The postcards I'm working on now are from a pack of Little Nemo in Slumberland cards I've been carrying around since 1999 or so. (I know I sent a few from France and Italy in the fall of 1999 and a few more from Madrid in 2007.) I'm going to get through these and then maybe start on something a little more collaborative? I don't know. It's all kind of forming. Flailing blindly. But I think it's time I attemped to crack the seal--at least temporarily--on the cloistered studio practice.
Changed back into big boy clothes and headed into the city. I met up with Ana, Shaina, Alessandra, Nellie, Suraiya and Monsur (thank god I had another dude there to save me from the vag fest) to see The Dave Hill Explosion at UCB. Ira Glass was the guest. Fucking hilarious show. Then over to the Half King for a few beers and some fried food. We scattered around 1 am and I took the E home and it wasn't an awful commute. Shocking. No homeless guys in my car, either. Stink-free commuting!
