I’m working on this drawing based on a photo of Keith Darrock at a way-too-identifiable spot on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. I am thinking of making it a label for some fictitious rub on, locally sourced, marijuana-based, artisan snake oil. Maybe.
The other drawing is one that I did to make up for doing the lettering for my friend Stephen Davis’s new restaurant, named “Cellar Door,” not “Underground,” though it, mostly, is.
Meanwhile, because one of my clients, heading for Hawaii, texted me something that included, “hang loose,” I got to thinking. Yeah, yeah. In the cold waters of the northwest, we don’t tend to hang loose, we hand tight. More thinking. If there is a wetsuit company that needs a new tagline, how about some variation on “Polar Bare Wetsuits- maximum stretch, minimum shrink.”
Meanwhile, Clint Thompson, pretty much a surf fixture on the Olympic Peninsula for a while, has sold his house in PA, most of his 50 or so board collection, and is headed back to Florida. His going away party was last night, possibly still going.
