1972 Suburban

1972 Chevrolet Suburban, 67-72 Chevy trucks, GMC Suburban, 72 c20 suburban

Gratuitous shot of the Suburban from our walk on Sunday, starting in Sunnyside (Washington Irving's home) to Lyndhurst Mansion. The last weekend for so many leaves still hanging on. The truck continues to run well - on the to-do list is fix rear oil seal leak at the axle (very soon); tighten up or replace power steering gear; various oil leaks around engine (new gaskets for timing cover and oil pan). It's been a pleasure to drive - and it about as rare as a Ferrari around here - about the same gas milage too? We've seen twice a 1979 Jeep Cherokee around town. It's not like California - but even in CA the older cars are getting rarer - although I just found this blog with some fantastic stuff from Alameda - click here...

Rabbit Painting

rabbit series - smaller paintings by Tim Thayer
Start of a new series of smaller gouache and watercolor works. I'm looking at balance here - and all that might mean within a painting (balance of composition, light/dark, etc.). I find the rabbit to be an odd character/metaphor - it's symbolic sexual meaning combined with cuteness --- but I also find them a little menacing (maybe it all stems from Monty Python and the Holy Grail???). These rabbits are also have a direct connection to the introduction of Henry in Milton 5.0. And a minor connect to the Updike character. This one is available at our Etsy Shop -- 20bucks.

Milton 5.0

Milton 5.0 comic strip by Tim Thayer
Working on getting a batch of Milton 5.0 strips together to submit to the syndicates. I'm coloring a few in - I've colored other Three Feet strips, but I think this is the first Milton. I may work a bit more on the color for Milton himself. Also I've had plans for CPU's little screen to show relevant content to the strip -- got the chance to play with that too here.
