Oh, hey there. Long time no see. Let's recap this thing numerical list style!
1. Remember Chicago? We were there two weeks ago? Well, it was awesome. It looked like this:
2. We decided two weeks is long enough to be back home so we're off to Washington, DC tomorrow for Crafty Bastards on Saturday. Why not come visit us if you live in the greater DC area? We're debuting two animals at the show who will make their way to Etsy upon our return. They are very stubborn and won't have it any other way.
The only time Ryan and I have been in DC together was in 2002. It looked like this:
It was the Fourth of July and we were paddle boating outside the Jefferson Memorial. One of us was wearing a Transformers hat. Does it get more American than that? [Side note: Looking through my DC photo album, and at these photos above, I realize that I am a much better photographer than I was seven years ago. I am looking forward to proving this to President Obama.]
3. It so happens that at the exact same time as Crafty Bastards, but all the way back on our west coast, Ryan is part of a group show called, "A Murder Of Crows" at the Gallery in Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles. That's this Saturday (October 3rd). Unless we master the arts of cloning and teleportation in the next 96 hours, we won't be there but Ryan's art is represented alongside such art luminaries as Julianna Swaney and Steve Weissman. Each artist had to represent a group of animals based on an alphabetical venery assignment. Ryan had the task of "A Dray Of Squirrels". Would you like a sneak preview? Okay, here goes:
That reminds me - If you didn't get a chance to take a look at Ryan's recent collection of "Champion Festival" art, check it out here.
