Ah...I met with Carrie Elkin this morning to talk about her album cover and stuff. We are both so excited about her project of a new CD. And my painting is going to be all over since she'll be using it basically for all of her branding!! WooHoo. Good luck in the studio today Carrie and thanks so much!!!

Today marked the end of Bella Blue's SXSF (south by south first). For the past 5 days, we have hosted over 30 bands from Portland, OR to Scotland in our backyard during SXSW. We were featured on the local news (and apparently were on the news in Dallas as well), the newspaper and the Austin Chronicle for hosting our free day parties. I am tired, however not as exhausted as I expected. I spent the last 3 months booking bands, organizing press releases, designing newsletters, myspace, posters, etc., having a stage built, painting 2 of the rooms in the store, decorating for SXSF, finding sponsors, ETC...and it's fin.

One of my personal highlights is that Carrie Elkin of Boston, MA asked to use one of my new paintings as her new ablum cover art. SOOOO cool. We are going to chat about it in the next day or so, then I'll have more to report. This is the piece she wants to use!

I started (finally) gutting my trailer this week. There is something very empowering about deconstruction, I must say.
