I recently did a graphic for Scott Cook of Eastside Harley Davidson for their Northwest BBQ Championship that they were going to have in May. This event were put on to help raise money for MDA . Scott asked me to come down to paint at the event this weekend and I took my son Nathan along to paint also. This was his first time doing something like this and I wanted to show him what I do at events and trade shows like this. He had a great time and the people were taken to him because we were both painting, like father like son I guess. He liked the attention like his old man, wow the apple doesn't fall far from the tree huh? The final painting were to be given to the grand champion of the event that day. We spent the whole day from 11am to 5pm there tasting different BBQ goodies. The weather could have been better but oh well what do you expect from the great northwest. A big thanks to Scott and Sheila Cook for having me and Nathan there, and for my cousin Hien Duong for taking all the great pictures.

Mike Ennen called me and Norman Roque to come out to Portland for Scion's corporate dealer meeting. Scion asked that we come out to finish up the car that we've started and also be the "entertainment" for the evening. It was an honor to be asked again and cool to hang out with the guys again. We got to see some new Scion model cars that was exclusive that haven't been seen by the general public. I brought my two cousins Al'n and Hien to come document the event and to make contacts. It was fun carpooling with them, kind of like a guy's road trip.
The weather was excellent, last time we were there it was all wet and rainy so I didn't have a good impression on Portland. We all hung out, Norman brought his wife and we all had a great time. Thanks Mike and thanks Scion, lets do it again real soon.
