OK Rockabilly Cloud Picker

January 26, 2011

My OK quote has gone viral and is showing up all over the place in Medialand, including the Daily Kos, Atlantic (Online), LA Times, etc.

Had a Fox 10 news crew in this morning to film me talking about Arizona Wild, as it's becoming known. I'll let you know when it runs. Going to be part of a show, or series on the local affiliate.

Went home for lunch and finished a little study I call "Rockabilly Cloud Picker":

This is for the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony 2011 program. Yes, it has an Ed Mell cloud feel, because frankly that's where I got the inspiration. Also wanted to make him a bit ethnic to show off the Southwestern angle of Arizona style Rockabilly, sometimes called Chicken Scratch (or, at least that's one arm of the movement). Maybe I should have named it "Sky Scratcher."
