feelings i used to know.

I'll blame the warm weather for my unshakable thoughts of swimming. well, not just swimming -- but swimming in that spring fed river.
The other day, a friend told me that she never learned to swim. I recalled my experiences of swimming in the San Marcos river. The years of school in San Marcos afforded me a wealth of knowledge and taught me the value of always having a swimsuit when in the presence of a river!

There is something about that river water that makes my entire body happy. And lately I crave the feeling of the river water all around me. I miss that natural wave in my hair that I have only known after swimming in that river...

Flatout FlatSTOCK

FlatSTOCK! Poster! Convention! proves, yet again, to be one of my favorite events of the entire year. This year, Flatstock 20, was my 4th annual poster convention to attend.
It was quite a sight to see.
And what is more, I found many artists that I have work from participating again this year. It was fun to talk shop with them and say "oh yeah, i have that print that you did last year.. with the birds.." and for them to say "oh! yeah, that was a good one! glad you got that one".

There was even a Lubbock-based design firm exhibiting! FD2
wow. there are "creatives" in Lubbock!

As in years past, the Poster Convention proved to be the creative "recharge" I crave. I could feel the energy from all of the creatives in one room circling around mine. My face hurt from smiling. And I left there on a creative high, ready to get back into the studio and crank out some art! woohoo

See you at Flatstock 21. March 2010
