Move, moving, moved!

Hey, ya'll! Haven't updated in a long, long time so here's an update: I've moved! Both physically (fact: I no longer live in The Hobbit Hole) and transubstantially (blog).

So, here's the new site! Pleasurable Distractions - for your pleasure ;) *wink*

I think i'll be abandoning this blog and just updating that fancy wordpress-a-majig i got going. Maybe someday soon i'll even wrangle myself a dot com! yee haw...

as always, have a wonderful day

Summer Tour!

Hey everybody!

So, I'm touring this summer through the midwest and south east with Mitch the Champ & my French friend Giz Xtramedium; we had an awesome show at the Hobbit Hole on the 17th with The Taxpayers, Harpo, Tim Blood and Hail Seizures before taking off the next morning.

I don't have the time to regail you with stories at the moment because we're about to start a show at Cream City Collective in Milwuakee, WI!

Longest of Overdues - Typrojeckt 2011

Whoa, I would apologize for this taking so long for me to upload, but I just have no motivation for this blog or documentation or the internet these days. Anyways!

Click Here to download all the typefaces! They can belong to you, for free!

And now I'm off for the summer! I'm leaving for tour with Mitch the Champ, Tony (the superhero) James, and Harpo! I'll be back in August, but who knows if I'll actually come back to this blog; I hope not!

peace and love, kids
I'm out!

Mosquito's Bites

I'm going to pretend that these itchy bits surrounding my fresh tattoos all came from the same bug. I'm going to choose to believe that now they're now (at this very moment) sitting in a tiny room, lit by an even tinier lamp doing calligraphy because of they've sucked ink blood of an ampersand.

But then, I also believe that I'm a typographic wizard casting spells that manifest through the relationship of flour & water, but bread is some sort of miracle.

I just spent a moment going back through my archives and it was pretty cool seeing me develop before my eyes. Both in terms of style, what I'm doing, what I look like and who I'm hanging around with (I see Allen come into my life, then The Fighting Trikes and now that my images are slowly waning Diamond Pony is kicking it & I'm making excuses of being too busy dancing to upload proper blog posts with photos and/or videos).

It was SO COOL going back through and reminding myself that I can draw and sketch and I do do do do awesome things and I'm surrounded by awesome people! I don't particularly see that inspiring me to do more proper blog posts, but hopefully maybe some sort of fantastical event will change that because it would be nice to continue to track my progress as a person.

then again, maybe my current progression is simply an expression of thoughts instead of images?

It really is a bit too bad that I can't just export my facebook updates, pics & videos onto this blog so that we could really see a growth pattern.

Keeping up with myself

Someday maybe I'll post some pictures or videos of all the awesomeness that I've been involved in and surrounded by, but until then I'm just going to enjoy it and share it with those around me (sorry I don't consider you in my immediate proximity, blogger based internets)

I've been posting as much as I can to the facebook because that's where I can tag everybody, immediately share with everybody, conversations happen and my friends are already hanging out there like it's a friggen water-cooler!

Just to glaze over it all:

Spring break was absolute insanity.

I came back to Cheney afterwards and was so inspired by our adventures I wrote a song that's been catching like wildfire! I've since stopped playing music as State of Nature and I've re-adopted the musical moniker of Paco. BUT I've been trying to play fewer and fewer solo shows because I recently helped start a traveling singer / songwriter band called The Sky is a Suitcase! Tony James, Allen Duffy, and I play old State of Nature songs, Tony James songs, Duffy Allen songs, old folk songs, AJJ & the like, and we collaborated on a new song, too!

The Hobbit Hole has been hosting a whole heard of happenings! Bonfires on the roof, sunset blush with the sunrise, brunches that last from 10am to midnight, stick and poke tattoo parties, awesome music, great food, and wonderful people!

Sometimes I feel silly using so many exclamation marks, but I'm not sure how to accurately express how excited I am about everything (damn near all the time).

The weekend of Friday the 13th was absolute insanity.

and it just keeps going and going and going!

On the horizon is my Senior Thesis exhibition for my BFA in VCD and I'll finally release what I've been working on for so long! The reception is at the art building gallery 6pm on May 27th. We get to start cleaning, paintings and hanging works this coming Saturday! Whoo!

Anti-Squatch is coming up! Instead of traveling across the state and spending a million dollar bills, a sizable crew will be traversing across the palouse fields for a free concert with some epic bands (and free camping)! Homemade circuit bending workshops, a million bands, and campfire rock?! Yup.

THEN Mitch The Champ is going to be in town!

I'm having enough trouble keeping up with myself, let alone trying to keep you up to date with me ;)
