Ojai Face design day.

I went kinda crazy on the Ojai Face designs today. I got out of bed this morning and my son Elijah had emailed me a link to a piece by Hunter S. Thompson from 1955. It is titled Security and the legendary Gonzo journalist in all of his 18 year old wonder waxes eloquently about avoiding the rut of security and making life an adventure.

We were somewhere on the edge of Oak View when the drugs began to take hold.

Well that inspired me to make a GONZOJAI Ojai Smiley Face variant with a HST theme. I like how it has a sort of racoon, nighttime, Hamburgaler feel to it. Really makes me smile.

I took this nudge from the muse and kept going. I made the screen, had several puffs of light hit me from above and then made some more magic on the computer. Easily distracted, I wandered to the garden and laid in the hammock for 7 minutes. Sweet release ran through me, and I was at it again.

Pulling an old image from my smart Samsung Charge phone. It really does take a decent picture. Better than any iPhone images I’ve been in. While I’d been at a job last week, I saw a note pad from a regional airport and I snapped a quick picture of it with my phone and went on. Here’s what I made. Again, a variant on the Ojai Smiley face, this time with the dream of an airplane and a wind sock limp in the afternoon lull.

Fly Ojai Airport how convenient.

Ok, that’s enough for now. I have to add these to my store. What a great day.
