A nice day by the pool at my cousin's house. Here is Kyle's Friend... I can't remember his name, but I won't forget the helmet and the speed racer swim trunks.
Thanks a bunch
R.I.P. finally... Maybe it's time to go through the many negatives and hard drives. So many photos and memories. Some how (soon) I will figure how to properly show them.
I visited the home I grew up in one last time before it's scheduled tear down. I took several photos and then started doodling. It felt strange and good at the same time. No one was going to scold me for drawing on the walls this time... Once the house is gone (It's about half way there now) I plan on documenting what grows in it's place.
We watched them jump the beach while we drank beer from a brown bag and ate olives w/sand sprinkled bread.

A few months ago, I collaborated with Jon Mueller on the cover art for his new record "The Whole." The record isn't out yet BUT you can see him perform the piece “I almost expect to be remembered as a chair.” this summer. I highly recommend it, he is an amazing artist and it seeing him live is very memorable. Above is a flier for the piece, not the cover of the album. Now I understand why he ask me to take photos of this old chair he brought with him to the shoot.
"Throughout summer and into fall, I’ll be performing one piece exclusively: “I almost expect to be remembered as a chair.” his piece will mainly be used in live performance to support the forthcoming release on Type Records, The Whole. -Jon Mueller
