End of day one - one shot paint, mad dog bay of pigs invasion sign painting

Current one shot memorial painting on a cargo fuel plane for the air force/air national guard

Been working on a bay of pigs memorial for the 4 Alabama flyers that passed during the bay of pigs  - I'm lucking to have rock star friends and students helping me and everyone at the Base has been totally great. I'll post more picture as we finish etc.

Historical Book Binding Workshop at Harbin Center spine work marbling etc.

Had a great time at the Harbin center - they came up with some great unique solutions for spine working and niches.  They combined coptic, sewn on tape, french hitch, wheat stitch etc.  They cased in well too!
