I got sideswiped in the center lane of Cottman Ave after making a left off West Laurel Ave. It was a minor fender bender.

When describing the accident to Trisha at the insurance company, she used the expression, “the suicide lane.”

Here’s how it effected me musically.

conference doodles - circles

It’s great to have an opportunity to color and doodle.  Last year, there was play dough on the tables, so I ended up with claymation in a collection called Space Sketches. This year, I tried to keep all the artwork in square boxes.  Most of the pieces are repetitive patterns using colored pen.  By the second day, I decided to push the boundary of squares, and put squares in squares, and try some three dimensional art using post-it notes, pens, paper, and shadows. Finally there are a few photos of found art: the outside, the books and the peeps.

Unitaneh Kickoff

Unitaneh Kickoff
A prayer for the kickoff of the NFL season

Let us now relate the power of this day’s holiness, for it is awesome and frightening

Who will win
Who will lose
Who will set records
Who will be injured
Who by concussion
Who by fireworks
Who by suspension
Who by violating the league’s substance abuse policy
Who will get the first pick of next year’s draft
Who will hoist the Lombardi Trophy

But wings, and beer, and nachos annul the severe decree!
