Hope these classes are well attended.
I’ve only bought 2 new complete bicycles from shops in my life. One was a TREK mountain bike from Bustleton Bikes 19 years ago. The second was a Brompton from Trophy that I bought 1 year ago. They do a great job, If you can’t fix your own flat get over there and learn already.

Phoenix

Not River Phoenix in front of the Dragonfly or the city that I don’t ever plan on going to.. This post is a celebration of a new computer. The old iMac is dead, sadly, and it’ll be a minute before things are normalized, but this, my first posting in several months, is the first step.

That’s Satin Slipper and the incomplete dragon during practice.

Interior scene for the Avenuers (big finish).

I learned a lot with this image. We spent a solid 2 weeks with extra labor on this one. It barely looks it. My favorite is the india ink sign.. and the guy on the human powered thingiedoo.

There’s 127 guys that I painted. Steve painted the bodies for 8 of em and Drew obsessed over the terrain. Too much detail for a “20 yard stare”.

The Taj M’hawl. I wish I could say this just flew together, but I struggled with the colors in the Taj for a while (it’s white of course). Drew painted the sky. He’s really good at skies (even though I disapprove of his color choices). We fought about the shape of the bushes. Nobody saw them. There was a huge prop in front of this scene. You can’t even see William Penn on top of the main dome.
I didn’t get pictures of anything. Drew took these but he missed a couple of things. Oh well.
This year I plan on recording my process better.
It sure is nice having a new computer.
