My Miami peeps who kept me in art supplies have a blog.

Thanks Franklin! (setting up a combo-breaker here...)

That Kremo hat trick is pretty sweet.

wwc, I quite like your "Lisboa, Lisbon". It strongly reminds me of the lyrics and delivery of Buck 65, if I may make the rather associative cross-discipline comparison.

Do they sing in Portuguese? I'll look them up...

All the text in the book is from the language tapes I listened to in a sad attempt to be able to communicate. Luckily Lisbonistas are nice and drawing works everywhere.

(and thanks)

Written Portuguese is very close to Spanish, but the spoken version is very different. Personally, I find spoken Portuguese unpleasantly nasal and generally unattractive aurally.

What happened with the "Art for Geeks" set from Paulthewineguy, I saw it this morning, but now it seems he set it to "private" - a pity.

They got nothing on us. That material has been evident in the brains of some of our university administrators here for decades.
