In about twelve hours time I head for the airport, heading for SFO for the anual Techcrunch Party. Like I’ve done for the last four years, for the event I designed a signed, limited edition print, pictured above- a play on the “Dream Big” campaign I’m doing here in Alpine, Texas.
Then it’s off to New York, NY the following day to sign prints, including Purple Cow and Create or Die.
Hope to be back home, sleeping in my own bed by Wednesday night.

Did you read George Monbiot on air travel in yesterday’s Guardian? Here’s a para…
According to the chief executive of the International Air Transport Association, “Business habits are changing and corporate travel budgets have been slashed. Video conferencing is now a stronger competitor.” Companies have finally twigged that hoisting 80kg of human 10,000 metres into the air whenever you want to have a conversation is a waste of time and money.

Hope all goes well in SF. Love your stuff, keep rocking.
It’s a testament to the importance of direct physical interaction with fellow humans.
Except these days it’s easier to meet people continents across than your next door neighbour.
Does this mean we can expect Purple Cow soon?
I love all your art…and your ideas. You have opened up a world of possibilities for me.
Alpine to SF?? Major culture shock. I live in TX, been to Alpine more times than I can count…
Well wishes and thanks for all the inspiration!
Airplanes and airports and cabs and bad food vs. video conference.
