Not to be fucked with: Vin vs. DDC. So good.

Vin’s forearm alone could move a mountain.

My Seattle mission on Thursday/Friday was quick and dirty. The traffic all the way there, and back, disgusted me so much I’ve just now able to think about it all. Here some images from the whirlwind tour.

01. “Savoring the smooth sailing of I-5.”
02. “Nitro Mark on his rat bike. Fucking lethal.”

Awhile back I did a logo for Nemodesign for the Hotel Max up in Seattle. (Nice site!) Well, hell, they used it, and man, we had to do a quick pitstop to pick Coal teamrider Priscilla Levac there on the way to the photoshoot. So cool.

03. “Priscilla Levac and Embry getting to know eachother, possibly discussing photo ideas. Maybe not.”
04. “The Hotel Max “M” mark.”
05. “Not used to seeing this stuff in real life.”
06. “Bellboy.”
07. “Real proud.”

Seattle has great neighborhoods. We did most fo the shoot in the Ballard district. I dig. Great old buildings and llittle shops and brick streets.

08. “Seattle: home of square tree trunks.
09. “Fucking unbelievable. How much you asking?”

Special thanks to Brad for arranging things, to Priscilla and Jessica for being beautiful and to Embry for getting it all on film. So good. Stay tuned for a sneek peek.

Took a lot of time off this weekend, and still managed to get a ton done. Wow.

Rounded off the weeked doing this shit:

01. Watching War Of The Worlds in HDTV on HBO.
02. Tuning up the Archives section. No more broken links.
03. More prep for the 2006 DDC Fall Tour.
04. Some guitar playing. The new strings sound so good. Sore fingers.
05. Some drum playing. So loud. Gettin’ that hi-hat beat down.
06. Making a mean smoothie. Sounds tough, eh? No? Well, fuck ya.

The Hotel Max logo is super clean, modern and nice. Nothing too baroque or too much. Less is more indeed. Gotta be nice to see your handiwork in real space.

sophisticated. simple. balanced. modern. not 1986”max” vernacular.
