The giant elephant in the room.


Be careful if you let me into your house.

And especially if I have one of these.

and one of these.

Drawing on a wall or ceiling or floor is a lot like cliff jumping. You sort of can't believe someone told you to do it, or let you do it.

But you said you'd do it. and now you are up there. so you have to jump.

Because it would be so lame to half-amaze.

or half-attempt to amaze. 

things should scare you a healthy amount. 

or else. things stay lame. 
and you never get that filled-up-celebratory-exhausted feeling. 

theres also some pressure when you paint on houses. or ON theaters. 

like HERE and then also here

I figure that I like pressure. or really, I am propelled by it.

And to be honest. I am in love with drawing. 

he's going to watch over a sweet new baby.


( there is a giant elephant in the room ) 

and a little bird too.

With a little stripe on another wall.



It is good when projects are bigger than me.

It is really good.

(literal too.)


what a little dream land.


All the best to this family. and the new little life that will be living here.
