On Tynan

My week in Hollywood has just finished and I'm now on a plane to Tokyo. Just hearing the Japanese announcements on the airplane's PA brings back fond memories of my trip here last year and makes me more excited to get there.

(Quick aside. The girl next to Todd is sleeping in the most hilarious position I've ever seen. She's kneeling facing the seat with her legs under the seat in front of her. Her head is face down on the seat of the chair, buried in the cushion. I cannot imagine that that's comfortable in any way. I wish I had my camera out to take a picture.)

I waited too long to call people so I didn't get to see all of my old friends, but I did get to see a bunch of them. I stayed at Style's place, spending most of my time working on CD on one couch while he worked on a new book on the other couch. His new girlfriend, an exotic half Indian, quarter Japanese, quarter something else, hung out with us a lot. She's adorable and a lot of fun, and they're in love.

A is for Art.

On I/O

Last week, A is for Art held their 10th annual Gala and Exhibition. And I was a proud visiting artist for this wonderful program for the second year. Last year I worked with the Chicks a group of 12-18 month olds and help them create a work of art to be auctioned off for the continuing existence of the great programs and work that the staff at the SDSU Children's center does.

This year, I worked with the Seals and the Koalas (same group I worked with last year just about two years old now). The kids created the entire of work themselves. And from the sales of the two paintings alone we raised almost $700, the night was a great success and made about $8,000 for the Children's Center.

This program started with a dream of a teacher, Mrs. Peggy. Who dreamed of the children creating their own works of art, and having their own art show. Now the amazing thing is that these kids, created amazing works of art then showed it at the Minge museum in balboa park, and sold their work for $$$. All this is so much more then I have ever done. Well done. And we made the cover!
