S is for Second coat of paint.

Two and a half walls remain before we can say we're done. One of R's walls will be done with chalkboard paint and we were able to get a mix that wasn't black or green. Thanks to the best paint store in LA, Jill's Paints and their advice, we went with Syndey Harbour's Chalkboard Paint because it has a clear base so you can mix any color you want!!

I cannot tell you how many times I had to refer to my beloved fan decks today. Countless times. Paint colors, PMS colors, I-feel-like-I'm-going-crazy colors.

The results of the day:
- R and I picked a color for the new studio. Mythic Paint Ghost Story 142-1
(Sorry Benjamin Moore, you lost out on this one)

- I'm working on some signage for this amazing place in China, and the printer is in, you guessed it, China. Time is tight and there's no chance for color proofs. And even with all the Pantone color matching goodness in the world, good old random values of CMYK pulled through and gave us a better color on all the printers we tested. Fingers crossed.

And fan decks closed.

For now.
This is what our new studio looks like... three coats of primer, newly sealed concrete floor and a long way to go.

At least we picked the paint color today.... will show progress as it happens.

I'm packing up my studio and moving. And man, am I finding out about my hoarding tendencies.

I'm heading to a new studio space which is still in the beginning stages of becoming a space. There's still a lot of work to do, but I'll share more when we're up and running.

This is just one pile, one small car load... so much more to move!
