11:45pm: excavations. 6 & 7.
Ex. 6 is a selection of ephemera found in the mound. There were more of them, but they had faded and were illegible. Ex. 7 is a wadded up pile of napkins, and below, a characteristic example of the many love letters I recieve almost daily. It's penned on the back of an envelope. The napkins appear to have an indistinct image of my default LJ icon on them, or maybe it is another miraculous Sudarium discovery. There are several, why not this one too?

9:55pm: cat.
In the tell mound, there is a very small porcelain cat. It was hard to see clearly, so I decided to make a trial drawing to see what I could see. I'll try again for the final; I sent this one off to pal kdotdammit. This will do here for now until I draw another.

11:55am: excavation. 1 & 2.
Here are a ceramic piggy bank and a silver metal, heart shaped pendant that says "I love you" (must be Rikki's) that I found on my cabinet / tell. The piggy bank was empty; the cork in the bottom gone. What other fascinating finds will there be?

11:06pm: thriving vallejo series: yeah!// here's a cabinet in my house.
I think maybe it is from India. The front has an elaborate, primitive chip carving. There's an accumulated mound of this and that on top. It's almost like an archaeological site: a tell. I think I'll excavate the mound over the next few entries.

11:30pm: drawing on cash register tape.
I asked the cashier in Trader Joe's for a roll of cash register tape I saw in a box behind her. She deftly swept it into the bag and smiled at me. Later, in Prunedale, we stopped for some coffee...

10:22pm: fold-up pine occasional table.
Here's an idea I had about 30+ years ago. I never built this fold-up one but did make many non-fold-up things similar to this.

In a studio environment, fold-up things are always good because lots of space for projects is the first consideration.
