Iggy, are you going to chew that thing? (video)

Iggy is a very submissive dog – I’ve never had a dog so willing to go on his back before. Here, he’s got a bully stick (that’s dried bull penis in case you didn’t know, much better for dogs than rawhide, unfortunately a lot more expensive too) in his mouth but he’s just laying there. […]

Like button stamp

Nation, a design studio, decided to make Like and Dislike rubber stamps that mimic the Like button from Facebook. When I saw them, I had to have them, so I ordered them. And they arrived today – here’s a sample: I can’t wait to stamp a paper at work with the Like stamp! Translate

Image transfers

Aviva has been trying out using image transfers as an underlying part of her latest artwork; this involves copying images onto special “paper” and then using turpentine to transfer the resulting decal onto canvas. Since I know how to use Photoshop, I scan and muck up the images (mostly reducing contrast and blurring them a […]

Pasadena

We decided to head to Pasadena on Saturday, so we dropped Iggy at doggy daycare (he loves it there, he runs with the other pups and comes home and sleeps like a log) and drove out to Pasadena. We started with my goal for the trip – I wanted to see the Hiroshige print show […]

Aviva’s studio

I’ll be posting pictures here of the progress getting Aviva’s studio addition built (Aviva’s mom wanted me to start this post so she could see – the power of the internet in action!). First the slab – they had to dig twice because they didn’t go deep enough the first time for the inspector (there […]

More pictures I’ve taken this week, mostly with my iPhone; hope you enjoy them! DirecTV had its Programmer’s Day – the companies that provide our programming bring their swag and set up in tents for a 2 1/2 hour party; it was cool to walk around and check out all the varied content DirecTV provides.

Iggy chasing his leg

Basil used to chase his leg when he got excited – breeders have the tails docked on schipperkes when they are very very young puppies because its a breed standard; schipperkes have curly-q spitz tails naturally. I think this practice originated with the canal boats to keep the tails from getting caught in lines; you […]
