in one week i’ll be driving all the way to austin to play the gold robot records showcase at sxsw - it is a long drive, and will not be cheap, and so i am selling original pages from the Mr Toast comic book series to help cover some of the cost of travel. have you ever wanted to be a patron of the arts? here’s your chance!
ALSO if you are going to be in attendance at south by - come hang out on march 13th! here’s the info: http://fatherdaughterrecords.com/web/LIBERATION2014.html
feel free to reblog the heck out of this post :-)
2013 has been a very busy year.
I often beat myself up for not “getting enough done” because of having to work 2 “day jobs” to squeak by, but having just spent the past few minutes tallying up some of my creative output over the past 365 days, I think I did okay!
This list is for my own records, you can skip it if you want. It’s just “self congratulatory” tumblr garbage. (yay, me!)
I participated in 5 group shows at Gallery1988 where I showed 23 drawings total (16 of them sold) - six were purchased by Edgar Wright!
At this summer’s San Diego Comic Con International, I drew close to 700 portraits of attendees over a 4 day period, as well as 25 tiny ink and crayon drawings.
On the musical end, while I did not release any new Seamonster albums, I did win the 2013 VEER Magazine music award for “Best Experimental” (whatever that means), played at The NorVa for the first time (with Kishi Bashi), released this David Byrne cover I did for fun, and wrote some original music for the score of the upcoming documentary film “Paradise Garden - Howard Finster’s Legacy.” I also recorded menu screen music for the Mr Toast iPhone game and remixed a Tom Tom Club jam.
I’m not counting sketchbook doodling, iPad drawings, collages, countless notes and song demos, since I have no way of getting an exact number for those things. I’m also not counting commissioned art, since that was more like “work” than “makin’ up stuff.” But anyway, I think I got enough done this year, on the creative side of things.
Still haven’t updated toddbot.com yet though - guess that’ll have to wait til 2014.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, GANG! LET’S MAKE MORE STUFF!
