Summerized Blog



After about 2 years of not having an online portfolio, I’m feeling the pressure to put some work up again. I created a bare bones online portfolio the other day, in record time — you can see it here. I’ll probably create something more robust in the future. Above is an image from the Bodega Party in a Box I’ve been designing for the Neighbors Project, for the last many months. It’s going to print this week I think.

There truly is a book for everything. It was gone when I returned.

Minimum met!

I’m excited to announce that last week, fundraising for my Avon Walk passed the $1800 mark — Avon’s required level. The current number is $2530!

Thank you so much, to all my generous contributors.

No Bocce

Last weekend Jason went with me on a training walk through Golden Gate Park. We’d been there a few times previously, but weren’t entirely familiar with what’s there. It’s kind of like Central Park that way, I suppose – something unexpected around every corner, be it a small zoo or a vagrant camp.

Our first surprise was a lawn bowling field. A couple of old timers were out there playing, along with a few newer recruits. Seeing the sign above, we imagined a confrontation between the lawn bowlers and the bocce enthusiasts, ala West Side Story.

Another surprise was the Botanical Garden. It’s actually quite large, with little warrens of paths that are pleasant to walk through. Different sections have names like Eastern Australia Garden, Moon-Viewing Garden (Japan), Garden of Fragrance, Old World (Asian) Cloud Forest, John Muir Nature Trail, etc. You can actually see a real variety of plants there, thanks to SF’s mediterrenean climate.

Golden Girls Revisited

Last week I went to another Trannyshack Golden Girls event with a bunch of people – Marcia, Maria, Madeleine, Matthew, Omar, Kaho and Magi. Nothing is more comforting than watching Golden Girls episodes lovingly reenacted by transvestites… We especially enjoyed the garment selection – Dorothy’s various textured and voluminous ensembles were faithful to the show.
