Enzo Ferrari Supercar Trace

My newfound fandom of all things autosport has taken me back to the days of creating vector art. I used to traces when I was in graphic design school. I really enjoyed using Adobe Illustrator to recreate photos. I did one for a class project and was hooked. Moving on after finishing school, that was 12 years ago, I stopped doing them. Boredom struck over the holidays and I knocked this one out. I originally picked this car because of the photo. I thought it looked challenging, but not too challenging. I knew very little about the car other than it was a bad ass looking Ferrari. As the project progressed I began to become curious about the car. The more I found the more I was enamored with it. This particular car was made in 2003 and Ferrari claimed to have made only 400 of them. According to this video some internet sleuths have found over 400 VIN numbers registered throughout the world. Ferrari only sold the car by invitation only. I’m sure Ferrari has more than 400 gazillionares in their Rolodex. Some were probably butthurt over not getting an invite so Ferrari made extra. My theory anyway. I …

Guy in the Mirror…

I had 10 seconds from the time I pushed the shutter button to bumble up those stairs, dive left dive left! dive left! , barrel roll backwards, and get my fat head around the banister. 10 seconds! I got this! Not going to lie, it was very close. Probably 9 something seconds, but I did it. The World is Burning I was thinking just the other day about that our little family unit has had a pretty long streak of good times and even now that the world is on fire, the good times still keep rolling. I remembered in the past I was little scared, because I knew that times can change quickly. A run of good luck is usually followed by a spate of bad luck, or so goes my experience. Then I realized, I haven’t felt that jolt of fear in a few months. Are these the bad times? I keep thinking that it can get worse than this. I probably sound like a selfish prick, because I know for some, it can’t get worse. Some here in Vegas have lost everything. I know enough to know that I’ve been very fortunate and an unfortunate change could …

New Year New World

Well, maybe not an entirely new world, but it just seams this pandemic won’t loosen it’s grip. About four weeks ago Dana tested positive after being exposed at work. We had to go into lockdown mode. Dana had a cold for a few days and that was about it. Feiya and myself didn’t show symptoms. I was able to continue to work. I only did unoccupied houses during that time. Fortunately, it was the slowest time of the year. This virus is no joke. Dana’s small office consists of herself and 4 other co-workers working in close quarters. Dana started showing symptoms a day after her coworker announced he had tested positive. We tested negative 10 days later after showing no symptoms for 3 or so consecutive days. Dana was one of the first of her coworkers back to work and one week later she had found out the mother of one of her coworkers had died from the virus. Her mother was retired and lived her. It came from the same outbreak Dana and the rest of us were exposed to. This is why we have to be very respectful of this virus. Sorry for being so glum. That’s …
