Hey kids, just a quick one today, I had a pretty eventful weekend so I thought none of you would like to hear about it. On Thursday I got a nice phone call from the Phoenix Police Department notifying me that someone had broken into my house and they needed me to rush home, so they could enter the house.
Thought #1 "Shit!"
Thought #2 "I'm stuck in a drive through at Jack in the Box."
Thought #3 "The dog!"
So I race home, arriving at the same time as my X and the boys and the police have the place surrounded, K-9 units, about 10 officers, the works. They enter and search the house and nobody was in there, and nothing was even touched (the K-9's did more damage inside the house than anything else). So nothing was taken, but the asshole did break 2 windows. One was very thick door glass that has to be special ordered. Taking into account the age of my house (98 years), putting in new windows was a day-long job of sanding, chipping and cleaning. So I learned something about installing new glass old-school style, big thanks to my Dad who really did the majority of the work, and while installing one we noticed a hairline crack we made, so we get to re-do that one later this year.
(side note - anybody want to buy a unique, antique home in Central Phoenix?)
Friday night was the first Phoenix Chapter Drink and Draw of 2008 and it was fun, I mostly chatted with Patrick Scherberger, Ben Glendenning and his wife and a retailer friend of ours, but I got a little sketching in on something I have been dying to do, The Hulk #1 Sketch Cover for the Hero Initiative. I'll post that when I'm allowed to. I also got about 7 games of darts in with The Drunken Tossers, dart night is always fun, and I flat out dominated, so that was even better.
Sunday I taught a Dynamic Drawing Class and had a small, but interested and fun group and then I got to watch the Yotes game with my gal, so a great day was had there. No new art today, but check out the new VILLAINS PRODUCTION BLOG for some goodness.
Oh, and if you see a shady white guy in his mid-30's that looks like the type of ass that would vandalize/potentially burglarize a home lurking around my neighborhood, kick him in the nuts for me.
