It's My Sunday!

This week, Tuesday is my Sunday...and you know what that means...PORK CHOPS FOR EVERYBODY!!!

Okay, not really. I haven't had a pork chop since high school, to be quite honest. What this "Suesday" really means is: A new Shay-Town is in the works! I've been up since early this morning drawing out an idea (and watching episodes of "Better off Ted"). I lost a lot of the ideas that I already had during the move to New York, so I'm working from scratch. I'm also going to try a little harder to make better drawings. Hopefully they'll slowly evolve into some real eye pleasers, but provide the same crassness I've always strove for and adored.

I also completed page 4&5 of the Chronicles yesterday. Once I've completed page 6&7, I will mail the moleskine back to my brother and post my new additions to the site. Thank you Lucas, Andy, Sarah, Melissa, Tiffany and Philip, for becoming followers of Ben's and my project!

I will end this posting with a video of the MP3 Experiment Nick and I participated in 11 days ago. Quick tip: If you plan on going next year, make sure the mp3 player you bring to the event doesn't tend to skip, pause, or stop completely. I had to keep readjusting my file to the proper time...but it was totally worth it because I had so much fun!

There's a cat in her lap!

Ahoy Thar Mateys!

I know that my bloggings have been few and far between these days. Thanks to the encouragement (and threats) of my best friend, Jess, I have decided to make a go at blogging on the regular again. Let's hope it lasts ;) If it doesn't, you have my permission to flog Jess. Flog her!

Speaking of Jess, last Sunday, she, Nick and I went to the Maker Faire to be awed and inspired by the nerds of New York. It was totally rad. I got to see a robot solve a rubix cube, a merry-go-round powered by rockets called the "Jet Ponies", and a life size version of the game "Mouse Trap". I also got my hands on some resin and molds, so look forward to seeing jewelry in my Etsy Shop in the near future ;)

One of the most recent additions to my shop is a pair of hand painted shoes called "Heart of Gold Pumps". These pretty shoes were originally silver with a faux snake skin texture. Now they've got a new look that has all of my friends wishing they had size 9 feet. If you know anyone who needs a pretty pair of fresh new kicks for a special occasion, send them my way ;)

On a different note, WE MADE OUR GOAL! Nick, Jess, Lance and I have been raising money for our documentary "Santas on the Move". On September 23rd, we reached the $2,500 we were shooting for seven days before the deadline. I cannot thank the people who pledged money towards our project enough. You guys rock <3

Well, it's now time for me to go. I will be participating in this year's "MP3 Experiment" tomorrow and want to be well rested for this hip happening ;) If anyone wants to come, let me know!!!
