So Close To Everything LostI have to get on the road, no time to comment. Listening to Leonard Cohen all weekend and being a Guillermo del Toro fan is most likely behind this.

Wisconsin ABC'sIt’s that time of year again where I get to see empty beer bottles and McDonald’s bags on the side of the road and hope I don’t get shot because I didn’t wear orange on my walk in the park.
I made a different version of this 4 years ago with the idea to do the entire Wisconsin ABC’s. I got bored after H.

RimyThis looked completely different 2 days ago. It used to have a sacred heart and there was a whirlwind of leaves. I saved the whirlwind for a something in the future. Maybe next? Who knows? I have also flip flopped on what is going on here: Patching, embroidery…perforating…

This is sort of a re-thinking of the “Love Is Blind” triptych I did 3 years ago. I don’t think that is posted anywhere anymore, so if you know what I’m talking about, pat yourself on the back.

Fears Will Pierce Your BonesI’m not sure why the mildewy smell of decaying leaves is pleasant. I can’t think of any other organic matter that is pleasing to smell as it rots. I’m sure there are more, and I’m probably even fully aware of them, but I’m operating on limited sleep this week due to a lengthy commute that thankfully concludes tomorrow. Enough on that…
I like the fall quite a bit, but I’m not ready for it to be here. I had plans. I still have plans.

The Upstairs Room (background by Zachary Worth)A few months ago I gave this to my friend Zachary Worth and suggested he do the background for it and if we liked the result then we could maybe collaborate more in the future. He also made a piece for me to design the foreground for which I’ve yet to do. We went to breakfast this morning and talked about some ideas for things to do in the future. As we were leaving he handed this off to me. I’m excited to see what comes next. First I need to make something for the one he already gave me.

You Belong To No OneThis started out as something completely different. It was so different that I may just go back to the original and try and re-develop it the way it started. The original was much more hopeless, but then my mood changed. I blame music.
