The Blues.

And greens.

Everyone always forgets the greens.

Yesterday was a very busy and productive day.

I got shit done.

Let’s exclude all the stuff I did for work. Just for the wow factor.

Yesterday I sorted through old photos.

All of them.

From 1948 to present.

All of my grandparents’s photos. All of my dad’s photos. All of my mom’s and stepdad’s photos. All of the photos taken by random people. And then all of my photos.

Sadly/luckily a lot of them had been damaged by time and/or smoke from the Great Fire of ’88. So, the the ones that were too far gone got chunked.

The rest got boxed. I still have a bunch more to box. sigh.

I bought the supplies for Sandragraphs. I also cut and assembled the bases of 6 10×16 inch and 3 4×16 inch of them. If you can’t tell, I’m getting ready to start printing Sandragraphs. (This technique was taught to me by Steve Miller.)

No. Not that Steve Miller.

Anyway, I’m going to attempt to start designing them this week.

I also picked up two gallons of mis-tinted paint. A blue one. And a green one. The blue was for the bedroom and the green for the office.

So, then I emptied the bedroom and cut in all the edges before heading to tutoring. After my lesson was over, I started painting my bedroom blue. And then Cassattack showed up. Out of the blue. (See what I did there?) And “helped” me paint. To be fair I wouldn’t let her paint because of the cathartic nature of the painting for me. But she finally talked me into doing a little.

She and I chatted for a while before I kicked her out because it was past my bedtime.

Oh, and I got the Sandwich Control and Sin Nombre Press shirts listed on Amazon. Go buy them.

So, my bedroom is now blue. Like REALLY blue. It reminds me of a little kid bedroom. This pleases me.

Today I plan on tackling the nightmare that is my office. My goal is to move everything into the center room and then paint the walls and move it all back. I’m going to try to disassemble as few things as possible.

I am also going to attempt to finish the photos. And start design the Sandragraphs.

I might post some of my favorite photos from the archives on here over the next few days.

If I have the time.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
