penmanship

Two weeks from now I''m a married man!

Recommended Posts

Holy hell I had no idea how much shit people give you when you get married.

 

Plush as fuck new towels, bedding, knives so sharp they might create an atomic blast when I slice through atoms.

 

There is the major costs though, still have a bit of savings leftover but it'll be a while before we've got enough for a down payment on a house again.

 

Got almost all my shit together.

 

Been cleaning these rusty ass bottles for centerpieces.

Jen's wedding gift to me. Kwest sculpture, soon to be added on a shelf also made by him which I can't wait for.

Getting a custom tailored suit because I own three different articles of clothing: t shirts, dickies, hoodies, all of which are apparently not good enough for my wedding so I decided to spend all my fancy clothes budget on one suit. I have dubbed it my life suit, as I will wear it to every occasion I have previously been underdressed for. Got my third fitting tomorrow so I'll post a pic

 

The tailor wanted a picture or pattern for the insignia or whatever it's called so while at school with nothing but soapstone and a welding table I sent Jen this:

and she sent the tailor this:

Thank fuck she offered to actually draw it because in hind sight a custom suit with my drawing would just not sit right.

 

 

Got a giant navajo inspired wood work piece from this dude MSGHandmade. he's got that instagram shit so check it out if you're into it.

hanging it in the barn behind the head table which Jen doesn't know about yet.

To try and match her wedding gift to me I got a hold of her favourite painter, Timothy Hoyer, and a couple teacup machines from mike pike.

 

I'll post pictures of the shit that happens in the lead up and the wedding if you fucks care to see.

 

If you want to help us pay for the wedding get tattooed by Jen, she's in chicago right now, and will be in brooklyn before the years up and austin at the start of december. (and I doubt any of you live in iceland but there for a short stint as well)

I was told to go there. they have a mini-gun apparently, so I'l pay for that experience for sure.

 

I'm up for anything really. the groomsmen that are coming along are on a tighter budget than me, but I think I'll be able to convince them if the entertainment is worth it.

 

One of them wants to see the dirtiest cheapest strippers, which I'm not that into, but will gladly take the walk and check out whatever sketchy region it'll undoubtedly be in. something along the lines of a "show" involving foreign objects would probably suffice for him. not that he's into that (I assume) but more so to see something fucked up while in vegas.

 

I'd be pretty keen on gambling, but don't know most casino card games well enough to attempt so whatever casino has the most ridiculous shit to waste money at.

 

and good scotch, is it true that you can roll with open liquor wherever on the street? if so duty free will keep me plenty lubricated on the cheap.

cheapEST dirtiEST strippers?

 

go to Chicas Bonitas in north vegas.... shit is a good time.

most larger casinos will have a shuttle you can use for titty bars. one way only though, so save taxi $

 

the 'world famous' Palominos strip club is on the same block if chicas bonitas is too trashy for you and your boys

 

 

 

yep open containers are ok. and you can take drinks in cabs.

the gun store was cool. worth the pricey experience imo.

i shot with a silencer and some full autos.

otherwise i dislike vegas.

 

nice artwork, all around.

 

i saw an old friend get married and she had a photo of her parents on their wedding day silkscreened onto her train. was very interesting on a wedding dress. (they died in her youth) cool to see people doing different stuff

 

congrats!

It was 350 plus shipping. dude gave me a deal because it was a bigger piece that he wants to use for his portfolio or whatever and it was for a wedding so he said it was even cheaper. mines about 6 feet long and three and a half feet high so it's significantly bigger than most stuff he does.

I think he's got prices for all the stuff available.

Cool, hope you like it. There are some things I would do differently after looking at more if his work, but that is on a craftsman level.

 

In what kind of setting are you going to hang it after the wedding?

brick wall in our apartment for now the two extra pieces will have to wait for our house though. wall real estate in my tiny apartment is quickly dwindling

 

I've also thought about how I'd do it different but Jen digs his work so I'll just buy his work.
