It ain't easy being interested in everything.  The diameter of my focus is manipulated by a flood of opportunities that each hold their own significant importance.  Actually, "diameter of focus" implies a foolish consistency that is not accurate.  The profile of my focus is more nebulous, morphing to accommodate the ebb and flow of priorities.  Oh, the list I could write!  My old buddy James, from college used to keep a credit card sized piece of paper in his wallet with tiny key words for jokes scratched into it so he could remember them.  It was funnier than the jokes.
Well, that is how my "to do" list reads right now.

Below are a few random images from a project I have been working on.

Color sample for the Three bench.  Milk paint on bamboo, shellac and wax.
Rude drawing of Three Bench.  I drew it after the bench was finished to make a show submission more interesting. Faking history. Fabricating a story. Its all a big lie. I saw a kid at Pratt scribbling on a cocktail napkin right before he had a presentation.  He tacked it to the board and the teachers were intrigued.  Suckers.  
Spooky photo of the almost finished Three Bench
Flip side of the color sample.  This is a blotch of milk paint.  A controlled spill.  We went with the stenciled circle.  It was prettier.  Less of a statement.  I do love this sample though.

Presenting The MOGmobile Interior!!!

This used to happen to me when I kept a diary. I am a busy guy and if I don't keep up with myself I get a little concerned 
that I am not giving all of these interesting things I am doing their due. Whaddaya gunna do?. Some kind of digital haiku would be nice but that would turn into a thing that might warrant a post of it's own.
Below are some images of the MOGmobile interior. What a rig. I wished I had documented the process a little more 
vigorously but my hands always had tools in them, which makes it hard to type. There was some good drama with the 
arm mechanism but everything else went pretty smoothly.
