A Useless Wooden Push Toy.

Been chatting with a buddy at the current 9-5 about some of the various projects that I have built and crafted together over the years and kinda got stoked to go play with an old idea that was kicked around for a while way back in 2006. So I am dusting off the 'ol paint brushes, oiling the rusted joints and giving it a go to try and bring some life back into this forgotten project. I am going about it with no expectations or a road map. Just going to start wandering with it and see where it might take us.
Starting out on this adventure I figured might as well mess with this here unused skate deck.

First thing first, need to rid it of it's original art and start fresh.

After a little elbow grease...

 time for a pass with a new coat of paint.

Yeah some of the images I shot 'em with the phone in poor light cause I was too lazy to get out the nikon....
Anyway, next up will be laying down some ruff outlines and giving it new life.
More on that as it progresses...
Till then ... "Keep 'em Flying"

Breakfast Sketch'n

A little bowl of Cinnamon Life, clean piece of paper, and some markers. My boy is making his old man proud! What a great way to start a day...
Go on Give it a go.
Cheers, 'MrRay'

Production is a Work'n

Before the Holiday brake I had the chance to hook up with my buddy over at his place of employment and check out the production line.
I am a big fan of innovation and its use to streamline processes, and these kids have it down. Real time production tracking! Amazing!

Now if I only had some ideas to put into works....

Pack It Up.

It has been a very long time since I have spent any time on this magic intro-net thing that I almost forgot how to use it... OK not really, but I have been super spent doing other things to keep food on the table and the 'lil groms  happy that it has taken me away from the beloved electronic information finder. Well upon my recent travels on the waves of information I stumbled upon this beauty of a pack built by Topo Designs for Kidrobot. Sickness!

I love great design with hidden fun...

Well that was fun we should do this more often.
For more funtimes check this.... better yet,
Go build something.

The End...2011

Good Bye Mr. 2011!... It started out with a new addition followed by a change in scenery and climate that ended with the unplanned and unexpected.
Looking forward to the continued adventure in the coming year!

"Keep 'em Flying"

Just a little CREATIVE fun... :-)
