1-2-3-4-5, blah-blah-blah, don't take no jive, 6-7-8-9-10, back it up 'n do it again!
|amongst craziness, time with friends and family has happened!|
Anyhow, I started at the Encinitas TJ's location, and so far so good. I am doing a lot of sign-work and the incessant busy-ness of this store is really nice. It makes for seemingly short days :) The drive is really nice too. Nice and short(er)! Here is some of the art I've done so far...some of which has already been ruined by shopping carts (SIGH).
First up, VALUE SIGNS:
Next up, FROZEN DIRECTIONALS
Anyways, so among life at TJ's, I've been interning at the Boys and Girls Club for my final undergrad class. It was a pleasant surprise to have my volunteering turn into a paid internship, but also way more demanding. I get to run clubs (kind of like classes) within the club, so I am sort of pseudo teacher. I have six clubs: dance club, art club, writing club, running club, yoga club, and song club. I have my favorites, one of which is art, but they all offer something neat. Song club was actually started by one of the kids, so that has been cool/interesting to see develop. Anyhow, I snapped some pictures of the art club in action!!
|some kids just wanted to mix paint, hehe|
|we were doing paintings in the style of Van Gogh, it was fun to see their interpretations of the art style.|
It has been a pretty tiring gig, but all in all it has been great experience. The kids are absolutely hilarious. Even when it is at my expense...ha.
The week of the 4th of July, I had the chance to go to an Artist Book Exhibition at the UCSD library with my fine friend, Quinn. It was pretty incredible. Here were some of my favorites:
In June, my grandma turned 96!! How's that for longevity! The ongoing joke is that she will outlive us all...
|I was pretty bummed that there weren't 96 candles, but hey, whatever.|
|We took 2 of these on my camera. This one was my fave though because Neely is pointing at the camera.|
I also had the chance of participating in artist penpal exchange! Here's what I mailed:

Poor picture of the final result, but here's what I did for the Sushi Lounge. It's quite big...go and see it live and get some Peppered Seared Ahi and a Lounge Stack!! :D
Last, but certainly not least, I am going to be in an art show this weekend!! I am not quite sure if I should have participated (because I think I may be going a little LOCO) but I already have a semi-clean desk, and have mostly everything marked and packed up! If you are local North County San Diego, or feel like driving, come by and say, "hello!". We will have wine!!
