Writing this email as Luke & Lochlan swim and do flips off a mini-bridge into Lake George. It’s our last full day here - we rented two cabins with my entire family - the same place where I learned how to swim, according to my dad.

My memory of this place - musty cabin smell, allergies and waking up to buzzing flies in my ears. It’s much better than I remembered, but I’m a city boy at heart, so one week in a cabin is more than enough for me...

My favorite part of the trip, the temporary tatoos. I picked a whale and a flower, Lochlan picked a penguin and Luke picked Road Runner. They say it doesn’t hurt but I felt everything!



For the artist-in-me - the hightlight has always been The Magic Forest, which was a strange, kitschy amusement park from the 1960's, with all these fantastical fiberglass characters living in the forest. Sadly (but understandably), new ownership came in and are upgrading the park. I’m glad I was able to photograph these guys while still here (most have been sold to private collectors in past year). Here are just a few.

When I happened on these guys a few years back, those recurring nightmares of being chased in a forest by strange characters, when I was a child, made perfect sense. I am writing a separate (cathartic) post about these guys, which will be up on our blog next week.

If you are around later today - Mike is running Open Studio from 4:00-7:00pm.When I happened on these guys a few years back, those recurring nightmares of being chased in a forest by strange characters, when I was a child, made perfect sense.

 Come to Open Studio today 4:00-7:00pm.

I will be back and refreshed for Open Studio on Monday from 11:00-2:00pm - ready to start a few new collaborative projects - hope you can make it! Or, check out our full list of events coming up in next few weeks - hope you can make it to one -or- a few -or- all!!!

It's our last day today up here with the family - so I am off to make a few more memories (and maybe get some more tatoos). Thanks for reading.

Happy Friday!

Mia, is an 8 year old artist that came to a few of our workshops. This print was made at her very first visit to our shop. It took her about 1 hour to create and all of us here at Little Pulp love this print so much.

Today, my wife, two boys and I just went on our very first road trip in a long time - and I am writing this sitting in a hotel room in center of Syracuse. Tomorrow morning, we are driving about 30 miles north to pick up Bowie, our new Australian Labradoodle puppy. She is supposed to be hypo-allergenic, we’ll see what happens - but we’re keeping her no matter what.

Kids love working with the tools of printmaking. Inspired by these tools, I am always trying to create my own tools for drawing & painting and our workshop is a perfect testing ground, where kids use them and let me know what they like and what they don’t like.
