Well Washington exports apples everywhere, so I picked up some Golden Delicious apples at the grocery store. I also took Joy of Cooking's suggestion to make a lard crust to go with this pie. I've never baked with it before, but they say it makes a flakey crust. If you have the book, I made "Apple Pie I" with the lard crust.
But the end result is still cool. And delicious.
The end result:
This is definitely the flakiest crust I've ever seen, and the pie tastes fantastic. The only downside is it definitely tastes like animal fat. Mixed with the sweetness of the apples it's nice, but on it's own it's a bit strong. I might try subbing half butter or shortening next time to get the best of both worlds.

The caseable pouch is not yet available for sale, but it will be soon! Check their website www.caseable.com for the status. This one fits a Nexus 4. So nice to get cool cases for us Android users. I own two laptop cases from caseable and they are very high quality and really fun.
Here's the back side on top of the gift wrap.
I really like Spoonflower's Satin gift wrap. It's so smooth and the printing is very crisp.
Here's the case and the gift wrap. Vector graphics make it so easy to scale all of this.
And here's the girl who inspired it all, Ramona!

Okay, so Texas Art Supply is a store where you will be swooning over all the pretty colors and items. I found an urge to work large and loose, and I found these cool paint markers. The tip is about .5 in across.

Anyhow, my internet connection was very bad for the weekend, but I did keep up the art during all the busy days. My fitbit tells me I did about 15K steps per day, so I was pretty tired.
Here's two drawings I made. The first is some ornamentation from the roof of the Paramount theater.

I'm here at PAX Prime without a good Internet connection, but I'm keeping up the patterns nonetheless. (I'll have to backpost a few.)
Today I visited the Wacom booth and tried out a Cintiq. It's so much better than the iPad. It recognizes pen pressure, and you can see where your pencil will go. Now I just need to save about $2000...
