We are half way through the semester and we are itching for summer. We started digging in the garden and now have onions in the ground. We have some greens, cabbage, and pigments to plant this up coming week. Allyson and I are really stoked about the warm weather, future gardening plans, and getting to the beach as frequently as we can. Unfortunately this year our spring breaks did not line up. So in attempt to get away for a little while we went to the beach for a few days. The weather  predicted that it was going to rain the whole time, luckily we had a couple of days of sun and got to enjoy the beach. Only if we could stay here next to the ocean. We had planned to work on our book while we were here....but we both realized after an exhausting week of school we would get some r&r. We are working on some drawings for our new zine that is in colloration with Patrick Costello and other artists called the Olympic Drawing Club. Working on Vol. 2.  I have also been planing out building a chambered paulownia surfboard that I will be attempting to build in the next couple of weeks. Check out our pics of the beach and some drawings. Enjoy!
