so busy with printing for Dolcezza.  I forget how much extra effort it takes to make larger pieces.  All coming out well, but it's slow going.

Happy to have the day over.  Screens made for the morning.

chicken with the BSUR ladies fun last night.

scared of the dupont circle rat pack.

working on prints for Dolcezza.  Like running in deep mud. (slow going)

happy about the debate, but still worried.

Incensed over stories of stiffed workers.

So incredibly sad to see the video of the toddler trying to wake her passed out / overdosed mother.  How could people just stand there and not comfort her?  It boggles my mind.

Worried about T's health.

Puzzled my Remis new normal, of "going" inside the house.

This is a rainy week, including maybe saturday.  Takes the sting out of the whole Del Ray / Transfer debacle.

ok, back to printing now.

so excited to walk in to the studio this morning and find the green windbreaker folded up on my table.  So much angst yesterday retracing steps and calling the hardware store looking for it.

Fall has arrived in a dramatic way.  cooler and darker.  Not so bad having a few rainy days, but…

High anxiety tonight about the 1st debate.  Fingers crossed it goes well for HRC.

Working on more prints, including the bear beaver LOVE print.  coming out well so far.

No transfers, so looks like Del Ray is a no-go Saturday.  sucks.

LOST & FOUND ! ! !

happy to deliver prints to Willow street gallery today!  Can shift my mind to next projects.

NO transfer paper in (still), so looks more like no Del Ray this year.  hex wants to sidewalk sale tomorrow.  We'll see.

Working on Andrea's print, and Dolcezza, and commissions, and StoryDistrict.

A good week overall.  Getting out of the weeds!

another day over

pick ups

& printing.

Finally putting the Takoma Show to bed, which means moving on to other things.  I can turn off my Takoma brain.  That will be good.  Dropping it all off tomorrow.


Days are getting shorter.

Frustration builds today.

problems with printer printing yellow, and therefore red, so my entire plan B for delray is fizzling.

I really can't stand the plan b paper anyway.  days go by, and nothing gets accomplished.  All I can think of is $x,xxx lost.  Damn.

bogged down and frustrated with my days, effort, and lack of progress.  Heard back from _ _ _ _, but it's not difinitive.  And wtf with _ _ _ _ _?  Ridiculous.

Nice time at Ave. Jack last night.  A bright spot.

Just need to stay positive.  What is meant to happen will happen.  95% of everything is out of my control anyway.

yikes - i've been a bad blogger.

Work has been so hectic - focused on one thing while the rest doesn't get finished.  I need 4 daves.  

Worked most the day saturday, only to have the drawing not work out.  It happens (rarely luckily), but sets me back.  Struggled to find my way today.  I expect that to be a running theme going forward into October.

Found some light towards the end of the day.  Shifted gears, (always hard), but it worked out well.

SO FRUSTRATED with DTG ! ! ! !  No word still on the transfers.  S T U C K K K K K K K K .

Everything pretty much in flux.  JUST / KEEP / MOVING / FORWARD >  >  >

YOWZA!

tired and drained after just a few days into September.  Working on prints for show, and it's a lot.

Not much in the mood to write, so that'll have to do for today.

Friday, September 2, 2016

Getting things done, but it's like digging a hole in the sand right next to the ocean.  The walls of progress slide right back down.  ha - not that bad!

Shifting gears today drawing - - - > printing.  Working on some fun things for the show, and having fun doing it.  Feel free and creative.  Just wish it was thursday and not friday already.

LABOR DAY weekend!  Wish i was feeling free to take off, ignore work, and relax.  But thats just not  in the cards.  Not this crazy September.  So I'll be working. . .

But overall, things are good.  i'm lucky



SUN:  I see the way you're changing, and I don't like it.  I realize I have to get used to it, but I just want you to know, that I know, that this is happening, and I don't like it!

It's been a fast week, but I'm proud of myself for staying productive and creative.

Working on STORYDISTRICT '17 themes, and it's alot of fun as always.  My creative juices start to flow, and it feels good.  Spills into other projects as well.

I need 2 daves for September.  One can draw, and one can print.  That way everything would get completed.  it's going to be crazy.

FALL officially has started today (Sept 1), and it's my GRAND BRANDDAVE ANNIVERSARY (I just realized!!!)   EIGHT YEARS ! ! ! ! !  wow.  8 years ago I had my first day of working for myself.  No more fing Adam.  amazing.

ok, lot's of logistics tonight.  I better get going so they can all work out.

Summer winding down.  You can feel the energy shifting.

B U S Y weekend, especially Sunday, celebrating Dad's 85th Bday.  A full day of cooking and grilling and cleaning and parcheesi.  Saturday I managed to work little, and went to Rock Creak / pool.  Good to relax.  But then that night was busy baking 35,000 eclairs.  Came out well, but there was room for improvement (more sugar in the center filling! )

Lots go get back to work on today, but VERy monday.  After such a draining weekend, it's not so exciting diving back into work.  Plus Monti's event is tonight, so I'm more focused on that.

Finished(!) my big round branches prints.  Glad to have those in the rear view mirror.  Redbud should have been 1000 x easier, but I kept running into issues.  Came out well though.

Now into a million other things.  September is going to be c r a z y.
