Added 1 new A* page:Just two pages left in episode 34, but they'll have to wait until mid-week next week; I'm leaving tomorrow to attend my dad's memorial service in Seattle. Back next Tuesday night, and should be back to work on A* by next Wed or Thursday—the 26th or 27th.|
Any important status updates while I'm on the road will get posted on my Twitter.
While I'm in Seattle I'll be taking down the last A* art show—one my dad arranged (it's at the Fresh Flours bakery in South Lake Union, Seattle—basically across the street from Amazon's front door) and my mom put up, after I had already moved out of town! So you've got just a day or two left to catch that one.
My dad, in fact, arranged all but I think one (my sister-in-law tipped me off to that one) of the many shows of A* art in the Seattle area over the years—it was him going around to coffee shops and other places that put up local art, door to door, talking to owners and managers, showing them print-outs of my work, and getting them to agree to allow my art on their walls for their customers to see. And he bought the frames, framed and matted everything (!), brought the hammers and nails and fishing wire and printed up the little signs to stick up next to each piece—basically did nearly everything, I just chipped in with a bit of the grunt work. It was his way of helping me get my art out there. : ) He was super-duper supportive! Thanks, dad. : )
And thanks to my mom, who helped put up a lot of the shows, and even provided catering! Thanks also to my brother, and sister-in-law, and other friends who came out to so many of the opening shindigs to support me!
