As the year winds down, I’m reflecting on what an amazing one it has been. With workshops across Europe, a group show in a museum, and the honor to have been involved with the Raygun Gothic Rocketship, it was a summer that will be hard to top.
There has been a lot of media coverage of the rocketship and I wanted to see a few of my favorite things in one place. Starting with photos, here are some doozies. Stay tuned for excellent video later in the post.

Hats off to Sean Donnelly for producing this amazing documentary on the creation of the rocket. It truly does justice to an amazing crew and project. Part of the film ran in Donnelly’s two part series for the Oakland Tribune.
