I'm sorry that I've been sporadic with my posts lately.  This time of year finds me very busy with my job!  Me and my buddy Richard did find a little time on Friday night to head out to Lola's in Ft. Worth to catch Hayes Carll, so I thought I'd do a quick concert review.  First stop was Chimy's.  This is a Texas Tech restaurant/bar that has branched out to Ft. Worth.  Great food and even better atmosphere.  It was packed.  Next stop was Lola's for the Hayes Carll show. This is the show that had my photo on the concert poster. So I had to attend right?? Lola's is a small little place that packs a punch!  Cool honky tonk dive that holds about 200.  Opening band was Shovels and Rope from Charleston, SC.  They were pretty dang good.  Check them out when you get a chance.  Hayes came on around 11 and played until a little after 1 AM.  Outstanding show with all of his hits covered.  I've seen HC a few times before but this was about as good of an effort as I've seen.  Make sure you download his new album KMAG YOYO. You will not be disappointed!

Navy blue on metal blue shirt

Here are couple of new t-shirts I've made recently.  I like to use my older t-shirts and undershirts as my trial shirts.  These turned out pretty good for trials.  I'm trying to come up with a few different versions and fine tune some stuff before I release an official JT shirt.  This screen printing sure is fun though.  Above is a brief tutorial.

400th Post! - Wow! - New Mini Oil Pastel Landscapes

Junky Trinkets has hit 400 posts!  I would have never guessed that I would have been able to go this far with the blogging thing.  I'm kind of addicted though.....so on we push.  Today I wanted to share some mini oil pastels I did last week.  I found these small wooden blocks at a garage sale and thought I'd knock out some small landscapes. They are landscapes painted from some photographs from the Big Bend region of Texas.  My blogging friend/artist - Erin Spencer does small oil paintings in a similar format.  Since I found these small blocks I thought I'd do a couple small pieces to mix it up.  The cool thing about these is that they only take about 20-30 minutes.  They are great when you don't have a large block of time to work.  In other news, I ordered some more film for the Holga.  We'll be heading up to New Mexico in a few weeks and I want to be prepared.  I have some locations in the Taos area I'm scouting out.  Thanks for reading #400!  Here's to 400 more!

Children's Name Signs

These are the types of requests that I get from my wife for gifts for friends with new babies.  Didn't think you'd see this on Junky Trinkets did you? All the antique wood was found at Canton.  I usually use antique door panels.  We think they make nice personalized gifts.

Serro Scotty Trailer Drawing

Serro Scotty Deluxe!

The other day I decided to draw a trailer that resembled the one we had when I was a kid.  The brand of trailer we owned was a Serro Scotty.  You can pick out a Serro Scotty by locating the super cool upside down nike swooshish  wheel well.  I was also thinking about incorporating this design into some of my future t-shirt plans.  It was fun busting out a real technical type drawing again.  That's kind of where my artisitic roots are from.
