Always movin

Been wanting a studio at the ICB building in Sausalito for years. I put myself on the waiting list back when I still had the Shop. I finally said yes and just moved in. Man I have a lot of stuff. I am simplifying constantly and and yet there is a balance of having that perfect thing when you need it, Hmm. Looking forward to a lot. My plan is to ride my bike to work and focus on my work during the day then totally being there for my kids when they get home from school.

This area of sausalito has held up some of its funk, charm and humbleness. The building has tons of history, for me it does too. My father lived on sail boats for years and this area has always been one of my favorite places to go as a kid. My father has been gone for years now , but I can't tell you how soothing it is for me to breath in the salt water air and the sound of the clanking lines on the boats surrounding me. My father was a great man and I feel like he is a part of me more than ever. This building is massive chalked full of artist, and I know half of them, its pretty cool. Sorry about my hipster photos, kind of was havin some fun with it.

 If you look closely my Dad ( nick name Pooch) is the sailor left to the golden Gate bridge print.

             Heath happens to be next door. I also grew up eating off heath ceramics plates. Coming from a family of 9, my Mom would pick the bone yard. We had a stack of the simple blue and white.
My kids helped a lot with the move, that was super sweet.
