This is one of my favorite artists brought to me through Google+. I find his work truly unique and yet timelessly classic. That he works in a digital environment makes it all the more striking. Support him if you can.
 
Today with a lot of excitement ( and a little bit of nervousness) we are launching our first ever Kickstarter project called 3000 Moments.
If you've followed me for a while, you'll know that I've published several sketch books over the years... this is the first one that will be a true compilation of my sketches of the day, with tips and tutorials on how I do my images, insights on how I think about my work, some stories about how I got in the industry, stories about my life and a few more goodies.
The book is a collection of the best daily sketches from the past ten years.
I hope you guys like this project and will help us with it and please share this if you like it.
Thank you
P.

Our beloved Bernie Sanders continues to show remarkable patience at stating facts to his deaf, ignorant, and in many cases entirely corrupt colleagues in congress.

More supply, less demand for gas in 2014 than in 2009 - five years ago.
Yet gas is now $3.73 when in 2009 it was $2.69.

More supply, less demand...yet prices go up.

When normal economic tenets don't seem to apply, there is a finger on the scales...clearly.

it's great that he's helping to make vinyl more popular but his music is the same generic alt/blues shit I have heard for 10 years.

Geoffrey A. Landis of NASA's Glenn Research Center has summarized the perceived difficulties in colonizing Venus as being merely from the assumption that a colony would need to be based on the surface of a planet:

“However, viewed in a different way, the problem with Venus is merely that the ground level is too far below the one atmosphere level. At cloud-top level, Venus is the paradise planet.”

Landis has proposed aerostat habitats followed by floating cities, based on the concept that breathable air (21:79 Oxygen/Nitrogen mixture) is a lifting gas in the dense carbon dioxide atmosphere, with over 60% of the lifting power that helium has on Earth. In effect, a balloon full of human-breathable air would sustain itself and extra weight (such as a colony) in midair. At an altitude of 50 kilometres (31 mi) above Venerian surface, the environment is the most Earth-like in the solar system – a pressure of approximately 1 bar and temperatures in the 0°C–50°C range. Because there is not a significant pressure difference between the inside and the outside of the breathable-air balloon, any rips or tears would cause gases to diffuse at normal atmospheric mixing rates rather than an explosive decompression, giving time to repair any such damages. In addition, humans would not require pressurized suits when outside, merely air to breathe, protection from the acidic rain and on some occasions low level protection against heat. Alternatively, two-part domes could contain a lifting gas like hydrogen or helium (extractable from the atmosphere) to allow a higher mass density.

At the top of the clouds the wind speed on Venus reaches up to 95 m/s (approximately 212 mph), circling the planet approximately every four Earth days in a phenomenon known as "super-rotation".Colonies floating in this region could therefore have a much shorter day length by remaining untethered to the ground and moving with the atmosphere. Allowing a colony to move freely would also reduce structural stress from the wind.

Cabby's thing is the volume slider. She is the mix engineer from hell. Full blast or dead silent is her game, and at the worst musical moments possible. 

This is a rare shot of the artist sneaking in while Liam looks away.

Heritage is a great place to bring your family business. We are a family of 4 and we just got our 4th vehicle (a 2014 Rav4 XLE) from Heritage Toyota. We were treated great - with respect and care, and we got a great deal we are 100% happy with. The dealership is very nice, clean, and comfortable, and we felt very welcome. Our salesman Rob Iandoli was great! Very friendly guy, greeted us when we arrived and didn't abandon us at any point, made sure we understood the answers to all our questions and didn't rush us a bit. When the deal got down to the end there weren't any surprises except how kindly and quickly Rob accepted our few last little requests to really make us feel like we made out! The buying experience was perfect and we will be back for sure for car #5 whenever the time comes. You definitely should let them make you and offer when you buy next.

L'Amante is our favorite restaurant in town I'd say. Personable and fun staff, and the food is wonderful. We go all the time without reservations and sit in the bar where it's fun and friendly. Kathy and Ian always treat us well and we save our pennies all the time to enjoy this special treat. The penne is great and if you get there early order the squash blossoms!
