Tim traded me this at the First Thursday Art Walk on 12/6.

Here is his story:

"The sketch book was made by a guy named DB -- one of my former neighbors in the Prudential Building here in Pioneer Square. When he moved out he threw out quite a bit of stuff including 3 sketch books. I took one of them apart and hung them as a border along my ceiling. I took another one apart and hung them on a wall and gave them away during artwalk. Thanks so much for trading the 3rd one for the ceramic chip bowl."

I tried to get more content by asking him a follow up question to something we had talked about at First Thursday "What's the best thing you've ever found at a garage sale?" -- because he told me that he makes a living going to garage sales (a huge dream of mine by the way!) -

His response:

I buy several thousand things a year so its hard to come up with the best. I do find lots of crazy/weird art. I buy some of it and put in in the book room where we have over 15,000 books on shelves waiting to be ordered. I put the chip bowl on my toilet tank in my bathroom in the book room. My stuff is for sale at www.happyhourcomics.com and www.happyhourbooks.com.

He's coming back next first Thursday to take some pictures with me because I was so excited to get the sketch book trade that I forgot (once again) to take a picture. Sigh.

Wanna know what's on the back of my toilet?

Okay.

I'll tell you.

A sign that says "Bean Pot" that was supposed to be a swing. "Bean Pot" was my unfortunate nickname as a small child.

What else, you ask?

Okay, there is one other thing.

A Jack in the Box antenna ball that has been strapped to a piece of wood and has a knife stuck through his head. It was a gift. From someone whose car I accidently put a Jack in the Box antenna ball on.

It was an accident.
