Between the Encinitas Street Banner and preparing to launch an Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign for Ocean Dancer II, it has been a very busy New Years Week.

Creating the banner went pretty fast, because the design was from my painting as well as the T-shirt design. The difficult part developed when I purchased an acrylic painting pen to do the bronze outline. The rough tip of the applicator took off the original paint, then the paint come out of the applicator too watery, cleanup time. Secondly, Angel my kitty got her tail in the lime green paint, cleanup time number two. Holding kitties’ tail was not an easy task, wiping it with a paper towel caused the paint to get onto other parts of her tail. Over to the sink we moved, tail in water and organic soap. What a chore.

Third adventure, the black marker that was used to outline the sign bled when applying the clear-coat UV protection. Interesting, the surfer was painted with the same pen and it only bled slightly, but why? The marker was acrylic for painting? Well, it’s finished!
