“If you build it, they won’t come…”

Here’s some weekend reading for you —  enjoy the links and we’ll see you soon!

Project 1 in 4 — 100 Days of sketches

Project 1 in 4 — 100 Days of sketches

Chances are, you know someone — or may be someone — struggling today. These drawings may help understand you how that feels.

Finally for this Friday, a lovely tune from the David Ducharme-Jones Band — playing again this Saturday evening, June 20 at the One-2-One Bar on S. Lamar in South Austin, Texas — y’all c’mon down!
