Driving Dakota
Last night Bruno told us about Al's, which is the narrowest diner as it's built inside an alleyway. Bob Dylan use to eat here and apparently they do the most amazing breakfast.
We woke up to an amazing sunset out of the hotel window this morning. Breakfast was included with our room and you got to make your own waffles. My one turned out perfectly. I had the flavour of ...

Rock 'N Roll Bride
We worked from Caffeine Dreams today where we spotted a piece of Lindsay Tonielle Lockwood's art which had sold. She didn't know and was so excited when we told her.
Motel Art
Jason Little (the author of Shutterbug Follies) sent us a copy of his new comic Motel Art Improvement Service and it looks so good.

I thought we'd spend today recovering from all the fun we had over our birthdays but Tom told me we were going on a mystery road trip. We jumped in the car and after half an hour of driving, we end...
Henry Doorly Zoo
Today was my birthday, so after opening cards and presents we headed out on an adventure. Every birthday girl should have a pink donut with sprinkles for breakfast. We drank orange juice from the...

Dave and Megan have been running an Extreme Co-Working week at Camp where everyone is invited to come and work, drink Red Bull and watch Vin Diesel movies. We headed along for a while this morning.

Beer And Loathing In Dundee
We went car shopping today on Saddle Creek where we took this car for a test drive. It seemed okay, though the horn didn't work and there was a strange sound coming from the boot. Our mechanic frie...
Tim Kasher
We went back to Red Mango today to get frozen yogurt. Tom wasn't too convinced that he liked it but after a few spoonfuls, he couldn't stop himself. This time we tried cinnamon and vanilla yogurt...
Kat Von D
This week I'm going to DIY the look of tattoo artist Kat Von D and I promise it won't hurt a bit... There's a lot more to Kat's look than tattoos so you better be ready to take a pair of scissors ...

I finished a new iPad painting today. It's so addictive.
We finally had some $5 notes today, so we headed to the Bemis Centre to get some art from the Art-O-Matic vending machine. There were so many cool things to pick from. We got a 3D art box and a b...
A Bicycle Made For Two
