While I'm on the subject of Grizzly Bear, I thought I'd post a video by the Department of Eagles, which is another creation of Grizzly's singer/guitarist Daniel Rossen.

Moe had a little encounter with something he didn't agree with during his morning pee wondering. Then quickly ballooned up and ultimately turned into a Shar-Pei looking creature, with swollen eyes and bumps and lumps covering him. But a speedy trip down to the vet and a few hours later, he was back to his normal self. Poor buggar felt pretty so sorry for himself though, and gave us a good worry...
Bam on the other hand, stayed home and ate grass.

An old illustration first done with pen and paper. Well, it actually started as two separate drawings that some how magically fit perfectly together. For some reason, I don't know why, I have a tendency to draw faces, as I'm sure you'll notice as time goes on.
Afterwards, I was also swarmed with fans and had all the press junk-its and not to mention all the autograph signing... It's exhausting.

This is a poster designed by Jay Ryan. For those who don't recognize the concept, it's taken from one of the best scenes, in, with out a doubt, one of the best films of all time... The Big Lebowski.
Jay Ryan is a Chicago-based poster artist who has done posters for The Flaming Lips, Andrew Bird, Flight of The Conchords and many more. Known for his work with squirrels, dinosaurs and other creatures, Jay knew exactly what to do when he heard the phrase "Nice Marmot."

My girlfriend introduced me to "The Black Cab Sessions" a few months ago, which is basically up and coming artist performing a song while driving around London in the back of a Black Cab. Every one I've heard just blew me away. The songs are striped down the their pure, organic sound and really show the artists true style and talent. The one I've chosen to post today is King Charles, who I had never heard of before seeing this, but now is one of my favorite songs. You can't help but feel good when you hear it.

Today we went for a walk on the beach in the Spanish town village concrete jungle that is Calpe. It isn't renowned for it's Spanish culture, but it does have one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen... and it's about 10 minutes down the road.

I'm pretty sure I like the top version best. Slightly more simple and easier to recreate. Obviously the graphic is the main aspect, and can be used sans background, but it does tie it all together. It's still a work in progress, but it will be my logo for the time being.
I was at the local Benissa Medieval Fiesta, and they had some pretty impressive classic cars on display. Why, at a Medieval fiesta? I have no idea, but this old chevy was amazing! Not exactly a car you would expect to see in a small town in Spain, especially when everyone around is dressed like Gandolf or Harry Potter. Bizarre combo.
