Back in LA, excited about 2013, embracing Atlanta, recap of accomplishments this past year

Hey BunBuns,

So I promise to be better about this blogging thing with more frequent posts.  Once I get everything set up I hope for it to be a really cool blog sharing my crazy adventures, cool experiences, so you all can be apart of this art journey with me.  What's the point of being so busy you can't share it with others?

There's already been so many experiences I have yet to share, but will hopefully catch up on them when I can, stuff that's happened over the last two years since I've been back to Atlanta.  So we will be doing a good bit of jumping around - talking about what's happening currently, as well as what's happened recently.  So much has happened BunBuns!

Right now I am in Los Angeles doing my first residency with Self Help Graphics & Art, who invited me to come and do a limited edition serigraph print under the guidance of Master Printer Jose Alpuche. Jose is a true Master Printer, his skills are out of this world.  I really appreciate good craft, it's been a real honor learning about the silk screen printing process from Jose and the folks at SHG.  

Sooo much to tell you BunBuns, I'm gonna spend some time going back and writing blog posts about all the cool experiences I've had since being in Atlanta, so we can be all caught up and move forward together.  Momentum is building as things will really be on fire next year and the year after.  Lots to be excited about BunBuns, stay with me.  

With that said, wanted to give you a recap of what I accomplished this past year.  I'm content, though not satisfied.  It was a good warm up, but still lots to go.  Stay with me BunBuns, things are about to get wild I can feel it.  Yee!
