these days are numbered.

literally … these days are numbered. i had the honor of designing the bar bc ranch calendar again this year. last year’s was a success and, according to the bossman, this year’s “is fabulous, well done!  Maybe the best yet?” 

Bar BC Calendar Cover

this year, i was asked to not only design the calendar and handle pre-production/production, but they wanted me to paint a series of watercolors to accompany each months “hero” photograph. the series consists of 3 insects, 3 fish, 3 trees and 3 plants. again, this was one of my most favorite jobs. i love large, intense projects that i can get lost in. this satisfied both my overly-organized self as well as the creative daydreamer in me. thanks again to mj for a great experience.

i work with a great partner on the project, which makes it that much more enjoyable (mj, you know i’m talking about you). the organizing, research, working with wyoming photographers, etc, went smoothly with the hillwood team. printing went smoothly, which is always good news. capital printing here in austin does a fantastic job of being technically on-it as well as accommodating and pleasurable to do business with (high five, mickey!). the production side of it can be a headache (and backache and eyeball ache) but they run it smoothly and kink free.

which is your favorite?me, i’m partial to jackson hole in september …

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 58 trips to carry that many people.

plaza saltillo.

about a year ago andrew started a small urban farm in east austin called HOPE community farm. after helping him get started i joined him in managing the farm. we are under the blanket of the amazing HOPE campaign, including the HOPE farmers market in east austin. the farmers market is continuously adding local vendors, providing excellent quality produce, clothing, art and more at an affordable cost. the market is moving a few blocks east to the plaza saltillo, a beautiful site (take a look here!).

each month a local artist creates a poster to promote the market and HOPE sells the posters in their shop. lizzie garrett, development director of the hope campaign austin, asked me to do a poster to advertise the market and to help promote the move. keep an eye out for the poster around town and in the next edition of edible austin!
