Crazy Day at the Visual Science Lab Headquarters. Painting, maintenance and post processing all rolled into one.


We're wrapping up Summer and I should be focusing my full attention on my commercial task at hand, creating video modules and stylized still imagery for the folks at Hahn Public. I've been in the command seat in front of the tactical imaging computer since seven this morning, hammering out extremely wide graphics to deliver into the heady swirl of commerce.

But I've also had an insurance adjuster out looking at the roof (hail storm) and a painting company power washing not only the world headquarters building, but also the family home, in anticipation of a much needed painting of all the many doors, windows and other surfaces that want, like and need paint. The scraping, caulking and painting starts in earnest tomorrow.

Seems it's time to refresh the physical plant and make right the injuries of time and weather visited upon the epicenter of the VSL compound.

I anticipate that in the next month we'll have more than our share of construction noise and craziness here but I can't see that it will effect the business too much. We'll see....

Thanks Patrick, I've lived and worked here for the past 18 years. I've cranked out seven books sitting in that studio in front of the house. Shot a couple thousand assignments. Raised a wonderful kid at the house just behind and to the right of the studio. The house and studio sit on about 1/2 an acre in the hills of west Austin. The property is about 1/2 miles from the pool I swim in and about the same distance (give or take a bit) to the top rated schools in Texas. Too bad I'm not interested in selling it....

Happy to have finally found some time (and $$$) to fix it up like new.

KT,
If you waited till your neighbors construction project was finished you
could have made more noise on your project just to let 'em know what its like!
(and have the workers park in their driveway)

I'm not quite awake yet, so when I read your headline I thought for a split second that 'post processing' was something to do with mending a fence. I think it was the 'Painting, maintenance' bit that put my brain into the wrong mode. Must have more tea!

It sounds like you have a nice place there.

Are you doing the Secret Lair as well? I mean, you got the guys there.

JB- We're saving it up for their open house. Thinking roofing, painting, concrete work and a garage sale on the first day..should be just about right...
