Hi Blog, here's a piece for SLAM and a story about Calvin Murphy, Houston's greatest short player ever and one of the finest to ever play the game.

Apple Store SoHo Recap + THANK YOUS

*notice* Consolidated posts.

Hey there Blog. Here's a little photo recap of what happened at Monday's Apple Store SoHo talk. Erin from the ADC and Jayson Atienza gave me a great intro and let me do my thing. My talk was titled "Braincicles" and was mostly me showing my work and providing (hopefully helpful) anecdotes about them. I showed a vid from my past and ended with some Dagr-Nott work, with Justin Weber utterly destroying with his yo yo. The only snafu was a failure to show clips from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. No big deal, however we did miss the Great Gonzo.

Great time overall, and many thanks to the world famous Ahmed Klink for hanging out with his camera. Also, audience member Elle Dio was nice enough to provide a couple more shots as well.

Many thanks to Jayson Atienza for the intro, Erin Biggerstaff from the ADC, Brian Davis from Apple Store SoHo, Tshombe Knight from OMBE, Ahmed Klink, Carmela Pereira, Gina Schiappacasse, Chris Rabanes, and of course my secret weapon Justin Weber! It was definitely a team effort and I would have crumbled if not for them.

Apple Store SoHo, this Monday

Hi Blog, don't forget that this Monday, January 17 at 6:30pm I'll be appearing at the Apple Store SoHo in conjunction with the ADC Young Gun series. I will discuss my range of work and have a few surprises in store as well. At this point, its looking closer to a variety show than keynote speech.

Also, I will have complementary gifts from the There Goes The Neighbor Hood concept for those that show up early. This gift is highly wearable.

See you there.

You're My Favorite 07

Hi Blog, Happy New Year. 2010 was amazing, and I'm looking forward to 2011 with even more fervor and excitement. Over the holiday break I had time to go back into the series You're My Favorite. I don't know what the ultimate final number will be for this series. I imagine one day when I am an old man I will stare at these existing and future works and feel compelled to make one more.
