Good News, Bad News, All Around News Worth Day

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to support Monkey's first feature show on Friday! The opening showcased mythical beasts discovered by Rick Kitagawa (aka Monkey) and Grant Gilliland. It was fun catching up with new and old friends alike, we even met some of our blog readers in person! If you missed the showing, “Bestiarum Vocabulum” will still be on display at Big Umbrella Studios until the end of this month.

Monkey was busy painting and preparing right up until the moment it opened. This was a good lesson as it was his first feature and would like to plan more in advance for his split collaboration with Seal for the June OZ Gallery. At the same time, Seal was preparing her work portfolio and for her upcoming show this Thursday: “Warhol Reimagined: The New Factory.”

So after a lot of internal deliberations at the Monkey + Seal cave, we realize that we bit off a bit more than we could chew with a M-W-F blog format. After a few successive weeks of missing posts here and there, we regretfully realized that we're a bit overloaded. Now that Monkey is helping run Big Umbrella Studios, Seal is working full time on her portfolio and getting into gallery shows, and we'll both be painting for our upcoming feature show at Oz Gallery in June, we realized that for the time being, we are unable to deliver the blog posts in a quality and consistent manner. We were rather disappointed with ourselves over the last couple of weeks.

Posts have gotten shorter, some without images, and this is definitely NOT what we want. We want to offer our readers constant quality posts with thought-provoking content that inspires you to reach for the stars and follow your dreams and become even more awesome than you already are. We get a pleasure of writing these posts and sharing with you our honest lives.

So after lot of careful considerations, in order to deliver consistently with high quality content and illustrations while practicing the sustainability that we often preach, we decided that it would be best for our readers and ourselves to blog our main posts only on Wednesdays. Our main posts will be our new posts about inspiration, meeting your goals, chasing your dreams, and will be accompanied by new high quality illustrations each week.

Because in the end, we want to spend the time and quality on making sure the Wednesday posts are excellent, we'll continue to have posts here and there of show information, reviews, and random goodness, but they will be unscheduled and flexible. So be sure to subscribe and/or check back so you won’t miss a beat.

We really appreciate everyone sticking with us thus far, and as our journey is far from over and is actually climbing much faster than we anticipated, we hope you'll continue on with us for years to come. We really couldn't have done it without you. Thanks so so so much for all the support and we'll see you on Wednesdays for now!
