My first baby mural

Happy 2014 everyone. First accomplishment of the new year: my first baby mural! This was for the Downtown Artwalk in Santa Ana. I didn't have anything to sell but I displayed some sketchbooks and offered free coffee, you know, to reinforce the whole thing.

The process took me about 5 days, half of prepping the wall and getting the sketch down. The other half was painting the damn thing.  It's been way too long since I've done big work (come to think of it. last one I did was in college and was of a skeleton rocking out with an Explorer...) so I asked around for some tips and people mentioned getting a projector. I was lucky enough to find an overhead projector for dirt cheap which made the whole process ridiculously easy. Just trace and apply paint.

Thanks Konsept for having me show at the event. Also thank you everyone who took the time to look at my stuff and talk to me. I really appreciate it!

Some mixes I liked this year #1

Alright, here it is. The last entry for this year's "Some mixes I liked this year" series. Hope they've been interesting and at least decent. Though honestly, I'm just doing this more for myself but if there's any other dance heads out there, please be friends with me. I need more dancing partners.

This mix is actually 3 years old but I suck and I was only able to find out about it this year and they say it's never too late for good music, right?  Oh well, I'll never be cool as you, underground dance music scene snob. Anyways, something about the intro just pulls me in and sets me off into this fantastic voyage of future garage, UK funky or whatever genre you wanna call it. All I know is this shit is good, all the way through, even if the mixing isn't.

Apparently, Jacques Greene hails from Montreal, Canada. I swear, as more and more time passes, Canada becomes synonymous with cool and good thing(s).

BONUS!

So I couldn't help but still toss in some more mixes I enjoyed. Here's some extra stuff. Hopefully these will help your dance party tonight. Though things will get heavier from here on out.

Also just found out about J.Tijn this year and I am diggin' his techno. Can't want to see him live, which I hope is soon. This mix is chock full of bangin' sound. Party time.

Anyways, that's it. I really need to make a music blog. Also get better at writing about music. Also a ton of other things. But hope this has been an enjoyable tangent. See you next year.

2nd installment of this lil' mini series. Just throwin' this up real quick before I go to bed.

Part of me wants to say this mix is pretty close to perfect. Has a real great flow of awesome 70's & 80's hits with recent dance tunes. You'll glide through this with ease and I'd like to think you can enjoy it at any time of the day.

Just one more to go... hope everyone's excited for tomorrow's shenanigans!
