I came back from a shoot, exhausted.
Went to my office, went to meetings... it's just really busy and I'd forgotten that someone asked for hi-res copies of some of the art from the blog back before I left.
One of the meetings I went to was a lunch meeting - a big one - and on the way in someone said that my art looked great on the wall.
Our office has multiple floors, I'm on 39.
Some of the people who conspired in this thing walked me up to 40, and there on the wall are gigantic reproductions of some of the most recent paintings.
It's not easy to describe what that feels like, unexpectedly seeing your stuff up big on a wall.
Ahhh what am I saying - of course it's easy.
IT'S SO COOL!!!
(Thanks Paul and Max and Di and Andrea and Lauren and Dave and DDB!)
So how you doin'?
Has it really sunk in that the Chicago Cubs are the World Champs?
It really really really takes some getting used to.
Management's vision couldn't have paid off more - we've all gotten to watch this team change from kids to stars to champions to guys singing on Saturday Night Live.
If the Commissioner's Trophy were treated like the Stanley Cup, I imagine a ton of us would have already have touched it and had a picture with Ben Zobrist or Anthony Rizzo.
And now the... we all knew it was coming but the heartbreaking retirement of Dave Ross... who's gonna replace that guy?
You know pretty soon they're going to trade somebody or maybe more, too.
Getting ready for that in my head.
Okay so here's the deal, and I don't really like going into depth about work here so as simply as I can say it... I'm going to be really really busy in the coming months.
Have patience - I'll still be around.
And I also hope to have prints very soon.
