East Austin Studio Tour:

Lots of great conversations over the weekend in the studio. Didn't see much of my peers work, saw Ben's a lot whom I share the studio with. This year the tour is spread out over two weekends, which I am not sure is such a great idea. I will reserve judgment until after next week, but I am pretty spent and it is only half way over.

Donut 168

Old Fashioned, Donut 168, Spring TX, 11.6.2009

I am no numerologist, but it is kind of weird that the show in Houston was Perspective 168, I ate this donut at a shop called Donut 168, and this weeks picture is #167, but really should be 168 because I skipped a week.

Donut 168 is not named for its address, but because 168 is a lucky number. I was in Donut 168 placing a call to Triple A for a tow truck because my car overheated again. This unexpectedly keept me in Spring another day. My trouble was caused by a $2 hose.
