Does the world really need another blog? Probably not. And yet here I am, typing away for no apparent reason. Maybe it's just a nice diversion from the madness many of my days have become. It's probably an understatement to say that things are a bit hectic these days. It's a good problem to have, but a problem nonetheless.
As much as I thought the art thing had kind of run its course and that it would be winding down soon, turns out it's alive and kicking after a bit of a lull. This year, I've already done a huge project for the NFL and about to start another for the Japanese division of Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company. Here's a couple shots from the NFL gig that involved creating the logo for each team in license plates. I was pretty nervous about a few of the more complicated ones, but I'm pretty pleased with the way they turned out.
Not bad, eh?
Beyond that, I'm currently in San Diego with my other company, Skratch Labs. We've been hired to oversee all the food preparation for all the riders and staff at this year's Amgen Tour of California. It's a pretty big gig for us since we're still such a small company, but it feels great to be partnered with America's biggest pro bicycle race. It's going to be a busy week for sure, but I'm looking forward to it.
It's strange that there is so much happening at once. I've even gotten a rash of auditions in the last couple of weeks. Most of which have gone as well or better than any auditions I've ever done. At least that was how I felt about them. The fact that I don't seem to have gotten any of the parts is only slightly upsetting. Regardless of what the casting folks thought, it's pretty much the first time I've ever felt good about an audition and that I did it the way I wanted without fear. If that's not what they want, then I'm probably not right for the part anyway. Oh well. Onward and upward.
