Happy Day After Labor Day

September 2nd, 2008 | Posted in General

This is a holiday that you will find on no official calendar, but it’s one all theme park caricaturists adore. Read that last link if you don’t understand… you need to spend at least one entire summer sweating out on the midway drawing endless lines of snot nosed kids, vain teenagers, drunk couples and surly art critics in order to get it fully. As a theme park concession owner, that goes double for me. Yesterday I was ultimately responsible for 12 art concession locations in three states with a combined work force of about 60 artists. Today… Nada. Nothing. Zero.

Oh, except I have a boatload of artwork to do in the studio and deadlines rushing at me like bullets from Dirty Harry Callahan’s friends Smith and Wesson. So…

The Dreaded Deadline Demon!

    From the land of 365 days a year theme parks, 35-40 artists on the schedule at all times, let me be the first to say….


    Enjoy the (relatively) freetime, buddy!

    Sure I didn’t get to bed until about 3 – but just the same I ended up sleeping in until about 2 in the afternoon. Which is pretty unheard of for me.
    It felt. . . nice.

    Now if I could just rid my olfactory receptors of the daily suntan lotion, B.O. and nacho cheese cocktail that still haunts me.
