Good weather today, starting angry/grumpy but becoming happy and relaxed as we made the entire, bumpy round (bumpy after grumpy), looking for a Hawaiian man who knew the gibbons, via the waitress (who gifted us a kama'aina price for the Coke float), driving past the aviator without noticing, stopping for ice cream bananas, and coming up on ranch rain at the end, discovering Sgt. Pepper and the mechanical nosehair clipper waiting, and the combo washer/dryer, shaking the house.

A good day.

tropical fantasms.

Exaggerated form and color. Your sense are filled, without need to fill in any gaps.

Unabashedly extravagant.
Colorful home for the flitting visitor.
Red cursor arrow pointing to?
Unabashedly purple.
And even more so.

Haven't heard the new album, yet. This looks like it's from early-ish on. Like their sound.

Creative Lab Hawai'i.

Group photo at the end of this weekend's Creative Lab Hawai'i Animation Ideation Workshop, where I pitched the hawaiian mythology project with the goal of reactivating it.

A good start to my time here.

This place embraces you as soon as you step off the plane. The world feels like it's on the television set, somewhere else. Birds chatter to wake you, and spam musubi is the devil's treat after tennis.

The sun, the ocean, the plants...all a salve for over-sensitized souls.
