repair work at lbb

it was a busy day at lubbock preston smith international airport (lbb). one of the gangways was broken and it looked like the grounds crew (one tall, one short) had their work cut out for them. ao and i were discussing if they were actually doing anything, or just looking up at that piece of machinery for the first time. for those of you unfamiliar with lbb, it’s not a particularly busy airport and is actually much larger than necessary. no one who works there ever looks particularly busy, that isn’t to say the employees don’t do their jobs, but it’s not exactly laguardia during thanksgiving weekend.

what's online: do-it-yourself music stardom

last what’s online illustration of the year, last illustration of year, most likely. so here it is, david byrne and he’s got six arms and he’s floating. (note: david byrne does in fact have six arms and can in fact float. don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.)

THE former Talking Head, David Byrne, interviewed Thom Yorke of Radiohead for Wired about Radiohead’s online-album experiment. Interestingly, though, a companion piece by Mr. Byrne, about how artists should navigate the troubled and chaotic music industry, is getting the most attention (wired.com).

urban rustic

food eateries open and close all over the place, and i greatly enjoy checking out their drawing potential. a new player is urban rustic where i met up with friend/cartoonist/illustrator gb. the people running the place were nice, the coffee was tasty, the food was okay (but i am optimistic that it will improve or that i will try better things). from a drawing sense, they do have lovely wooden shelving lined lined with do-gooder groceries, but the angles to draw are not terrific as the seating is all the way in the back of long space.

eben rating: it’ll make it into the rotation.

happy winter

nothing like a mug of hot cocoa and marshmallows* on a cold day. full disclosure, it’s not terribly cold at the moment, but it’s been looking like it’s going to be a cold and snowy winter this year. happy winter everyone!

*note to petm (people for the ethical treatment of marshmallows): these lil’ guys are happily and willingly plunging to their deaths in a vat of rich, chocolatey, and delicious, hot cocoa.
