Slash Study

More digital painting! This time I did a drawing from the video lesson with Slash included in this months Guitar World Magazine and scanned it into Photoshop. It's not the greatest piece I've done, but it sure was fun and I learned a bit.

Back From the Desert

This weekend Leah and I took a little excursion to the desert to see The Duke Spirit perform at Pappy & Harriet's. Our cabin was located at the edge of Pioneertown, a western movie set built in the late 1940's.

We drove up Friday afternoon and were joined by our friends Erin, Rachel and Amy the following day. After some drunken Scrabble on the porch Rachel prepared us a great meal and then we were off to see the band. The Duke Spirit delivered a spectacular performance! It was rad to see them perform in such weird place with a mix of LA people, bikers and local desert dwellers.

Shit's On Fire Again

Around 1:30 pm yesterday another fire broke out near us, this time east in Griffith Park. It seemed under control by late in the afternoon but after sunset it picked up again. These photos were taken by me around 10 pm from our friends Erin and Rachel's place up the hill from us in Beachwood Canyon. By the time we went home around 11:30 pm no flames were visible from our vantage point. Thanks to the hundreds of firefighters who protect us. Leah and I have a feeling this won't be the last fire we see this year.

More on the fire from CNN.
