My buddy Ed Frayna commented on how hard it is to find time to draw these days with a child around. She's best thing about me and I love every minute with her, but the drawing has taken a back seat to playing and taking care of. I fit this one in while the baby was sleeping in the car up in Park City, UT. At 7 minutes and 13 seconds into the sketch, she woke up and wanted out. I intend on finding the time, no matter what. It's just a bigger fight, but one that's worth it.

We don't have a pool, so we bought a $10 wading pool from Wal-Mart for Olivia this past Saturday. For the record, one of those wading pools comfortably fit two adults, a toddler and a 100 lb. dog. Not that it's recommended, but just in case one needed to. Three of our four neighbors have pools, so at one point Mandy says "I wonder what our neighbors are thinking about us..." I laughed out loud. As I sat in 4 inches of hose water, I pictured our neighbors casually looking out the window to see us in our blue wading pool, all together, splashing away. We started to joke about getting a mini tiki hut to serve drinks and other items that would make the scene even more rediculous. Someone once said "to live in Las Vegas, you HAVE to have a pool." Done.

I've been messing with letters these days. A co-worker handed me "Style Wars" and "Piece By Piece", which are documentaries on graffiti over the years. Purty cool. So I've been tinkering with some of that kind of lettering for fun. It takes some time to adobt any style, so I just mimic until I get used to it and then try to find my own style and flavor. Oh, and if you see someone that looks like me running from the fuzz in the rail yards, ......I was home the whole time watching Lost.
