Well I didn’t have much time to do this but I think it turned out pretty good it’s for a Halloween show at the Texas theater. Sort of like a variety show music and little scenes and skits you know funny but spooky. Not too sure if I can make it actually you’re not going … Read More

and so it begins

I feel like I am doing something really dumb trying to sand all of this crap myself but heck why not? So far I am making good progress but man it is a bit of a hill. Also I got dusty as hell last time.

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][az_column_text animation_loading=”no” animation_loading_effects=”fade_in”]Here it is. Pretty straight forward. Just an initial thought. ideas like these from this site: are cool ways to use a structure we already have instead of buldozing and doing over. AHHHH it sounds SOOOOO much like the baloney with the Hilton downtown that was going to be demoed because … Read More

For a good cause.

My fault. I got a little carried away for a charity auction and spent a little too much time on making an art piece. It turned out great.

Taking Down the Nothing Fits Show.

December 4, 2013By erikUncategorized

It was a good turn out. Now that it has been a couple weeks since taking it down, I am starting to want to do another show. >>>Side note, I really enjoyed working with Nina Harp on this project, she is a really great person and I really feel like I was able to peak … Read More

Update on the house

February 18, 2013By erikActivities, Design Stuff, My Place

Here is a cool update on the house. The front entry garden and fountain are done up. I was able to rehab the old plumbing and install a new pump and bowl for the fountain system. The dirt was bone dry and sandy. Had to dig out a ton of it so the plants wouldn’t … Read More

Living in the outer rings of the cliff is really peaceful and quiet. A bit unusual but I am getting acquainted with it. The place I live in is damn fine and I am still scratching my head about people paying the big bucks in fancy “old oak cliff” ain’t it funny? Seems like only … Read More

Bizarre dreams make room for crisp awake state.

November 14, 2012By erikBlog

All last night I was having dreams. Before I could get the chance to totally relax and dip into the quiet abyss of complete and total subconscious rest, I was resuscitated back into a completely torturous visual fest. My mind was exhausted this morning as I struggled to rustle myself out of bed. I do have a penchant for … Read More

Voting Freakfest.

November 6, 2012By erikUncategorized

Wow. Didn’t think it would get to this level, but here it is. Sounds like voting machines are rigged. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOj2IPulNPA I did these a couple months back, but I figured they were appropriate for voting day. If you’ve tried Coke and Pepsi, then maybe you want orange juice?

One day closer to big fun.

There is a certain excitement when it comes to creating something, especially when it is something for your own company. There is a certain level of ownership that is sometimes lost when you are working for a customer. I am not saying that the work you do for customers is somehow less important or not as … Read More

Percival must have went through a ton of shoes.

October 22, 2012By erikBlog

My skill set is constantly growing. I seem to run into it whether I want to or not. The idea of many additional hats stacking up on my head is not a concept I particularly enjoy, however it seems to cultivate a certain level of perception or foresight that could be lost on someone working … Read More
