September 15, 2003
Really juicy piece on me in the Scottsdale Republic zone edition this morning. They did a very nice job. The quotes are correct, the photo is okay (who is that old, grizzled fart. Oh, wait, that’s me!) and it’s great exposure for the magazine.

Worked all afternoon yesterday on surfing illustration for my December editorial. Makes me sigh. I must have spent four hours on four different versions (this is supposed to be a spot illustration!). Still not done. Two have potential. Here they are. Your thoughts?

Speaking of your thoughts, please go vote on your favorite Vera stamp image. You can click right here. We are going to publish the results and send them along with our formal proposal to the U.S. Postage department.

Watched Sex In The City and the premiere of a new show Carnivale on HBO last night. Man, the sex in Sex makes me pucker, and I’ve always thought of myself as a liberated, worldly male. Really enjoyed the opening of Carnivale, but I don’t think the actual show quite lives up to the hype and the imagry. The opening, montage of old film clips and weird tarot cards and classic paintings where the camera goes into the painting and it has depth, going over character’s heads (in the painting!) until we see a new image and then it cuts, it was all just amazing.

Kathy posted our house on a vacation service website to see if we can house trade with someone in Europe. After posting this at the TW offices, we stopped for an early dinner at El Encanto. Had several margaritas and split a Sonoran enchilada plate ($41 house account). Fun talking to my honey. After all the events of the last two years it’s sometimes hard to believe we’re even friends.
