@highlife Whatever happened to your wife’s jewelry business?

@monkey Where’s the best place you’ve ever been?

@DougoBlue Are you still making etchings or print blocks? If not, are you planning to start up again? What are your favorite subjects and why?

@nick What do you order at a Mexican restaurant?

i love champagne problems and dorthea on evermore.

folklore …i really like the 1 and this is me trying.


#265

I haven’t done any etchings in quite a while. The studio I work at isn’t as equipped for acids that you use to etch the plates… you need very good ventilation and we’re not there yet.

I am still doing woodblock and linoleum block prints. I have actually just started working on a linoleum block print. It is a tryptic of a street scene. Getting back into urban landscape once again - one of my favorite subjects or genres. I also do figurative work as well as still lifes.

Most of my subject matter only really appeals to me. That’s all I really care about is pleasing myself.


#266

what are your fave tracks off those two albums? @saf

also, how fucking good is Lover. i go back and forth between that one and 1989.

probably 1989 because my brother bought my daughter her first vinyl and it was 1989


#267

No, no, Doug. I would buy your art in a heartbeat. I really like your art.


#268

Thank you, that’s very kind.


#269

I can’t fairly answer about Evermore, I literally had just heard it for the first time within minutes of you asking.

Mirrorball is my favorite track on Folklore.

There is only one Taylor Swift album that I love and the reasons are non-standard. That would be Red. @thebalvenie

i have a print dougo was kind enough to send me.

#271

I can’t wait to see that.


#272

Funny story about that print…

My cousin always sends me odd Christmas presents from Kentucky. She had sent me a couple years worth of presents without me reciprocating and so I thought I would send her a print. She had told me that she likes my prints. I sent her one of those Beehive prints and when she got it she sent me back a rather angry text saying “Don’t you know I’m very allergic to bees, why would I want to look at that?” Obviously I had forgotten about her allergies.


#273

This is Me Trying is a great track though, I love that line “I was so ahead of the curve, the curve became a sphere.”


#274

@monkey Where’s the best place you’ve ever been?”

I don’t honestly know how to answer this.


#275

My wife had a partner in her business years ago, but they dissolved their partnership and closed the store. My wife continued making stuff, and reopened her own store after two years.


#276

Just say Gweneth’s funk bucket.


#277

Or wherever @thebalvenie has just been. Same thing.

@ Faithless-Street Board

Black as the night and strong like bull.

Strong with creamer by the gallon.

I wash it up with baking soda and smoke that MF
