TODAY IS THE DAY, AUSTIN: I flew in yesterday, just minutes after President Obama landed. Got to see the ass-end of Air Force One on the tarmac, which was exciting as hell. Austin was buzzing for the president with stories of the motorcade, taco lunches and intense security. Man, I love our president. Just so thankful to have him leading the charge.
Anyhoo, I grabbed my rental, raced to my hotel, unloaded my gear and started making my way into the city. Made it downtown in about 10 minutes, straight down MLK. Was robbed blind by some snake-eyed parking lot attendant so I could make my interview appointment at “Analog” by American Greetings. Whatever it takes.
I’m down here to do my talk today! The schedule is up above. I’ll be delivering a BLISTERING rendition of my Tall Tales multi-media fiasco, with extra emphasis on paper, slowing down and the wonders of ephemera in a world that just keeps getting fast and faster. Deep breaths, big world, deep breaths.
Our slot is at 3:30pm at the Thirsty Nickel down on Trinity & East 6th Street. Open to the public! Come see the show, Austin!
Thanks to all the good people of Mullen Lowe, Guild and American Greetings for making this event come to life. Thank you Yudit, Lauren, Enrique, Jonathan, Ruby, Caroline, Mike, Emily and all the folks who rolled the dice on me, and a cool event.

AND CHECK IT OUT: I got to make the logo for the event! You’ll see it above! So fun. Thanks! Come to the show! 3:30pm, you fire-ant-infested Austin’ers!
