KC left us today.

We woke up with 3 cats in the house this morning.  KC had been sleeping the back of a kitchen cabinet and had stopped eating so he went to the vet. We were unable to bring him home.  He was not yet 2 years old.  We now only have 2 cats...I'll post more on this another day.

The View of Baldy View

I will be the first to admit, my aesthetic can be a bit...  let's say, "Youthful".  I grew up in Anaheim and worked at Disneyland in my teens...so there is a lot of youthful influences that I try to incorporate into some of my projects as an adult.  I can't be too far off from the rest of the world, the guys on "Big Bang Theory" are always reading comics and playing with toys...right?

So, a year ago, I got an ideal client... an elementary school.  I did some logos for free, and then designed tshirts to promote school pride---I even geared up the pep squads (who even knew that elementary schools had pep squads?!?)

And then, over the Summer, I got the request to help design the graphics for the new school marquee.  So I sent this image:

 And now, today, I got these pictures of the project moving forward:

Baldy View Marquee Close Up

I have been able to say I am a professional designer for a while, but have not had too much proof to back it up publically.  Therefore, I am posting this to validate my designs...  YEAH!!!!!

KC McCasey's 1st Halloween

KC was quite helpful outside, as my Halloween decorative assistant.  He is very much UNLIKE any other cat I have had the acquaintance to know.  He will follow me around the yard, always under foot "helping" me with everything I do.

He was, however, very photogenic with the Halloween decor...
What a handsome boy!

Bailey Cat Halloween

I posted this on Disneyland California RePort blog, but it probably is more appropriate here...

Here is what Bailey considered dressing up for on Halloween
perhaps, Ghost Bailey...

possibly, Vampire Bailey...

Bailey decided to be the Sorcerer's Apprentice

Put On Your Sunday Clothes

When you see or hear "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" from Hello Dolly, what is the first thing that comes to mind?

Do you think of dressing up for those horrible Sunday mornings of your youth?

Is it Barbra Streisand, Gene Kelly, Walter Matthau, Michael Crawford or Tommy Tune?

How about Yentl, Phantom of the Opera, or the Tony Awards?

For me, I always think of  Wall-E

Portland(ia) Recycles

Beginning Monday, Oct 31, Portland begins a new chapter in trash pickup.

 ... been doing blue recycling for years.
 ... yellow glass pickup, also a regularity.
 ... green Green Waste is also done often, Often.

so what is this new chapter you ask...?   (I assume you ARE asking)

OKAY, so Portlandia, the series, might have added a extra bin color or two (or twelve), but beginning on Monday, trash pickup is gonna be done only every other week in exchange for composting that will become a weekly process.  Sadly, we eat out more than not.   Still striving to become more Portlandic!

And Now For Something Completely Different...

Sooo... I just started watching "Curb Your Enthusiasm" this past season. It makes me uncomfortable as I laugh out loud hysterically. The season finale made watching the entire season worth it, but enough about all that.

The character that had me laughing in the aisles (that is, if my living room actually had aisles) was this, shall we say "special" kid... I don't to give too much away here. I found this video clip online that summarized the story line in just 3 minutes.

Oh and by the way, I love this video... but it is just SOOOO wrong...
