I hereby present this piece to my WordPress Illustration Blogging peer, Paul Longo, of portfoliolongo.com.
He suggested I mix a dashboard, pipe threads and fittings…oops…I just checked my notes and realized that I forgot the doorknob. I finished it last night, uploaded it to a draft, and now I’m sitting at my desk at 7:32 in the morning trying to post this. It’s hot and ready to go. Paul, I’m going to have to owe you a doorknob.
In fact, I’m going to Morguefile right now to get you a shiny doorknob.
I’m back. I found something better than a shiny doorknob, check out this vintage hardware. It’s beautiful.
Forgive my forgetfulness. The reason, not my excuse, is that it was late in the evening after bathing the kids and putting them to bed with a few hurdles (read frustrations) that then led me to open a bottle of wine of which my wife got one glass and I got the rest.
I was at the kitchen table alone with my wine, This American Life podcast, my iPad, and my notebook that was open to the page where I wrote down the items that you requested (chagrin). I was cranking away on the painting and having a good time. Just forgot to double-check the notebook.
I hope the fact that I put your face on the dashboard can make up for that.
I’ll add one more offering to the plate. This is my first draft from the previous day that I scrapped.
