Solid output. I’m surprised to see how many series I did during this time! Also, for being the summer, this work was a lot less ridiculous and whimsical than usual for me. It’s good that I’ve found places where I can exhibit my output.
I spent my time at Mendocino Magic increasingly on practical matters but did find time to crank out a short run of dinosaurs.
Entirely practical, this one is a place to hitch up your boat. Previously there was none. Surprisingly, guests really did not understand this very well and adoption was low. I think this might be related to the water level decreasing far enough that it became easy to pull your boat up onto shore, but it’s also a good reminder that people don’t follow rules and do everything wrong. I built and decorated a series of five of these with help from friends. This series of 3 coffee tables was very nice, with help on the spray from Jay. This photo doesn’t show the fade that well, but the purple fade made this a favorite for everyone I talked to. I put together a 5 part lounge in some undeveloped central space at the park. This reclining bench was a great challenge with excellent payoff. It’s huge and very very reclined. Personally, I fancy this silly tea table made entirely of fence boards with a top I found decaying in a scrap heap. This game! We found a half-dead foosball table and decided that, rather than toss it like we should, we would put in hard work to rebuild it all crazy! It’s name is GOL SMOKING, as you can see on the side.
