I had the pleasure of meeting Doug at the Art Party last night. I love his ArtAxes. I have always wanted to do something artistic with guitars but a) never could find an old one to do it with and b) didn't know what I would do if I had it. Doug doesn't have that problem. I found it interesting that he said some folks are turned off by the fact that the guitars are rendered unplayable. Well, they are for display not play. Duh. C'mon people. Despite the fact that a guitar is a beautiful instrument sound-wise, have you ever just stopped to enjoy the aesthetic beauty of their design.
Doug is also a remarkable illustrator. You can view more of his work here.

I met James at Velouria in Ballard the other night. As I was reading his statement, I saw that he graduated from The University of West Florida...just like me...only 10 years later. I really like his work. I hope we cross paths again sometime.
We met several great artists over at Building C in Ballard on Satuday night. Here are a couple I really liked.
I am very envious of their studio space over there. I suppose that should be a goal of mine to one day be able to support myself enough to have a studio outside the home.
