While I'm on the subject, last gig our band played, tech e-mailed a week before the show asking about my setup and could I draw him a quick plan? Sent him this... and everything still turned out okay :)

This might be the most “actual LOL” post I have ever seen on TDPRI. I love it!

Tech’s reaction: “Ohh shiii—...”

Great artwork and wild story man! Wow... Your drawing would make an awesome couch cover for a music room, or perhaps even curtains? ;)

I feel like I'm on a roll, kinda hard to stop posting guitar-related art so here's a quick one for the road: second tattoo I ever did, machine-free tattoo-poking practice on my left leg, felt inspired the day after I bought the Baja... I'm not a pro tattoo artist by any means, I just like me some slow torture.

That’s awesome. I’ve never thought of doing such a thing . You’ve acquired alit of instruments in a relatively short period of time!
In retrospect, it sure looks like I did, but only in retrospect :) Never had all of them in the house at the same time tho, and I've got this rule where I try to give each instrument I own a little attention each and every day -- a guitar that stays unplayed for a couple of weeks/months deserves a better owner. Last couple of years, since first picking up a tele, I'm a bit more focused, and I found my odd equilibrium: two guitars = not enough, three guitars = too many. Been down to the two in my avatar for a couple of years now, got a third one on the way -- an Esquire partscaster, taking my time with the slowest build ever...

Nice work! My kid is on the spectrum and I have some spectrumy qualities too.

Cheers,
Geoff
'Spectrumy qualities', love that! Same here, I found out both my kids (7 and 3) are on the spectrum before I realized where they got it from. I always thought I was just an odd quirky fellow, but a late diagnosis is better than no diagnosis at all, it sure made life a bit easier.

Thanks again for the compliments everybody!

Love your drawings and comments! I understand completely that you wound up with two teles. But after all those cool guitars you've documented, no acoustic?

Man, I want Steebz’s band setup drawing as a T-shirt. That is rock n roll, right there. There is actual visual rock n roll drawn in the air around the guy and his amps. How often do you see that?!?
This comment makes me happy. For all you lovers of trashy rock'n'roll mayhem, more pictures from my diary below, in a variety of drawing styles: a couple of self-portraits and a couple of band pics, most drawn right before or after shows we played. Since people seem to dig it, maybe I should do a limited tshirt run...
