It’s time to pick your Squiddie brains again… See how much you know about Squid Row… answers will be printed in the blog on Tuesday.
Hi Squiddies all…
I got a recent communication from a reader… and she poses a question…
I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your blog. It appears as if some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this
happen before. Many thanks
I would like to know, too… as I want you to enjoy Squid Row on your ‘puter. Feedback please…. on any and all issues.
So, recently I got an ipad mini… and I’m loving it… and so there are two groovy programs I’m monkeying around with… (figuratively… I have no monkey)…. Sketchbook Pro and Paper. Both apps are pretty darn cool… and I am having fun with each application’s unique features… I am posting a few doodles for giggles (and because of the monkey) … I’m not that good at present… but I am improving, I feel. Feel free to comment. Randie, here is made with Sketchbook Pro.
Coffee guy (which looks a little like Kurt Sasso with weird hair… not sure why), is done with Paper (which is a GREAT app for designers…)
I found this little Public Service Announcement online… and I thought it appropriate….

Randie got into paint over at my coffee shop. The coffee joint in Squid Row, Rollickers Coffee, is actually Rollick’s Coffee in Salinas. It is steps from my office and it is a favorite haunt…. my go-to joe coffee joint.
The reason for the mural is that the window was smashed (for the second time in less than a month) and the semi-temporary ply-wood fix needed some art! So I offered my services along with Trish Sullivan and her Hartnell art class… and we put our heads together… and made it happen. Here’s some of the action…
