October 18, 2006 Bonus Blog
Kathy bought me the new Beck album. The coolest thing about it is you get to design your own CD cover. Beck put a whole bunch of stickers inside, and you pick the images, the hat, the typeface, etc. you want and put it all together. Here's my art direction BBB version (notice the twin Beck typefaces):

I constantly learn a bunch by copying the masters. Here's two studies of Maynard Dixon-ish scenes. He really had a knack for southwestern color, and he is a big influence.

I hate when I get car fever and I really hate the distraction but it sometimes can't be helped. Last week, a neighbor parked his Ford pickup out at the end of Cahava Ranch Road and I drove by it several days, but then he moved it across to my side of the interesection and of course I couldn't resist, I stopped, checked it out: he wants $9,800 and it is in cherry condition. There's only two problems. It has 140,000 miles on it and I don't have the $9.8 K. I called the owner anyway and he said, 'How much can you offer?" And I said, "Nothing, sir, but I have car fever and I had to call anyway." That's my humble, little Ranger in the foreground (100,000 miles) and Big Brother in the back:
