Teeth in the grass

I saw this on the way to work today. I love walking to work because I find things like this. Oakland seems to be full of inside jokes represented by graffiti and symbols all over the place. I think its great that the internet and the street are so closely intertwined. Im sure most might find it somewhat sad, but I am really fascinated by it. I've seen so many things around the street that somehow manifest as jokes on the internet.

One week left of Pre college. The program has been a success despite some minor "road bumps" along the way. The kids are in crunch week and so they are dropping like flies with sickness and exhaustion. I forget that I've had about 4 years practice with this way of living. I am ready for a good ending to this thing next week.

The Morae River has been suffering a bit due to my 9-5 schedule but things will pick up in August. Its incredibly hard to balance a full time job, art, and life these days. I feel that Its something that will take a long time to learn and I hope to avoid it all together by keeping my profession art related soon.

I have been writing a bit about a new species that will show up on soon but I like to take breaks painting something fun. This was an old sketch that I decided to give a second chance. Im hoping to have it done this weekend.

Great blog!
It is funny how we share the same feelings about how complex it is to fit art between day job (at Spain it is from 08:30 to 19:30), and family matters.
BTW do you use digital media of watercolors?, they are fantastic.
