Nash Car.

Every now and then I’ll post something just for fun even if it’s kinda random. Here’s a 1947 add for Nash Motors. This is a beautiful example of the ‘streamline’ design style of the 30s and 40s period. A lot of trains, planes and cars had this type of design (even some buildings, ie: Chrysler Building). I think it represents a feeling of optimism, modern comfort, style and the idea of ‘going big’ that unfortunately is so lacking nowadays. Perhaps it might inspire us to dream about the past and imagine better things for the future. Nash Motors on Wikipedia.

Zine Fest Houston.

Last Saturday I had a table at Zine Fest Houston at SuperHappyFunLand. True to the name of the venue, a good time was had by all. I got to meet the people from Blazed, CEJ from Armzrace, Jason Polland who draws Robbie & Bobbie, the guys from Brass Comics, Richy Vegas who shared his pizza with me, Gabriel Dieter who made the poster for the show, and of course Shane who founded Zine Fest Houston and Lindsey Simard who organized this years Fest.

I want to thank everyone for the warm reception and friendly atmosphere. ICECUBES even won best table! Thanks guys I had a great time and it was really great to meet fellow Houston artists.
