Sunset over Manhattan

So I’m in New York now, and will continue to be so until the end of the month. Ilan is doing his annual visiting of family and friends, and I just tagged along.

What I’ve been up to:

* Working my ass off with my day jobs as usual
* Forcing Ilan to show me around interesting neighbourhoods
* Seeing Ilan and his band perform a few times
* Answering the question “So how do you like New York?” about five million times
* Eaten lots of very, very good food

Piggy street art!

Piggy street art in Williamsburg!

The doggies here are on average much smaller than in Berlin.

Corner of Washington Avenue


Stairs up to an abandoned house, one of three or four in a row.

Closed up store


There were lots of doggies in this room!

There were lots of doggies in this room! Maybe it’s some kind of doggie day care center?

Ilan in New York

My plan here was actually to force Ilan to take me to the exact place where the main part of this video was filmed, but there is construction going on there right now, and you can’t access it. This is as close as we got!

Brooklyn Bridge

There are many more photos on my Flickr.

As for my comics, you might have guessed that I’m in a rather wretched period right now. It has happened to me several times before, and quite often around this very time of the year. I just know that one day I will wake up and know exactly what I need to do next in Driftwood. Until then I will just have to suffer …

But in the meantime I’ve designed some more fabrics for Spoonflower. I made a new boar variation and a fabric with Eva(!). Sneak peeks below:

I made three different colour schemes for the Eva fabric. But we shall see how they look in print.

Some people have actually bought my boar fabrics. Whee!

    Kankaasi ovat todella jänniä. Kuinka isoja paloja ne on? Aattelin ehkä kangaskasseja vai olisiko parempi jotain muuta?

    Bubu: Tässä possukankaassa possulainen on korvasta korvaan 5 cm. Toisissa possukankaissa possulainen on korvasta korvaan 10 cm.
    Eva-kankaassa ison Evan pää on noin 7 cm päälaesta leukaan. Eli aika iso kuvio …
    Jos mä tilaan itse mä voin myös pienentää kuvioita.

    Kangas on noin metrin levyistä, ja sitä voi tilata vaikka kuinka monta metriä, ja myös 50×50 sentin paloja.
    Ne varmaan sopii hyvin kasseihin ja laukkuihin … Varsinkin jos yhdistelee niitä jonkun yksinkertaisemman värin tai kuvion kanssa …

    Netania: Heh … I like it here – it’s much more messed up and decayed than I had dared hope for, and random strangers are in general friendly and polite in a much more ‘honest’ way than I experienced in more superficial Houston. And it’s very nice to be surrounded by water.
    But I couldn’t live here for a longer period of time. There is too little air to breathe – the streets are so narrow and there aren’t many parks. And the average doggie size is too small! :o(
