LANDED IN LONDON

It is late when I get to the check in point at Stansted airport in London.

At first I think I am going to be cleared, but then the Border Guard squawks his walkie.

I have got a Stop-Check. Someone needs to come relieve me. he says.

Fuck. This again.

He grills me and I provide answers. What is you purpose for visiting London? How long are you staying? How much money do you have? Do you have a job? Have you had trouble with Border Control before?

I provide my printed out itinerary, and he asks to see proof of my departing flights. My phone is dead, so I have to use my laptop.

That is okay- take your time He says, I am still waiting for someone to cover me.

I connect to the free airport wifi, as he hands me this form

He says I bet this looks familiar. I think, maybe, but it has been awhile. I already know what comes next.

By now I have pulled up the proof of flight and all the places I am staying at while visiting London.

After looking at everything he directs me to the holding area.

Now this does looks familiar.

I quickly pull out my sketchbook and begin to draw.

This might be the only thing I get to sketch in London.

It will be a quick drawing.

Several minutes later he comes back.

Wow, you just drew that?! he asks.

That is what I do. I say.

I let him show the others guards. He takes the sketchbook to show them.

One of the girls asks- Did you draw me? Yes.

I look like a man, says the other.

(sorry hon, it is the uniform. It is never flattering).

Then the gentleman who has been grilling me asks his supervisor- Wait, are drawings of the border Control okay?

The Supervisor just silently nods her head.

Back to the business at hand.

He informs me that he has read the last report where I was denied entrance.

Things have not changed.- he says. I am still a freelance artist without a steady income.

So I log back into my laptop and access my online banking.

I also show him the confirm bookings for the hostels.

He goes back up the stairs, behind the black glass. At this point I am thinking FUCK THE BRITISH. I will act proper, but they are going to get a piece of my mind- about how they got the wrong person. I just want to draw your shitty country!

Then he comes back, and says- Okay, gather your things, and meet me at desk 18.

I take my time, shutting down my laptop.

Too long, and I rush over to the desk as a few things fall out of my bag.

Okay- he begins - We are going to LAND you, but I am giving you this stamp that will be a red flag to every time you try to enter the UK.-

I’m going to be landed! Yes!

I ask - Well, may I ask what these concerns are?

Without a family or a typical real job back in the U.S.A they are worried that I will try to start a new life in London…. We will not penalize you for being different. I am going to LAND you.

He stamps the passport, and tells me to go.

I walk past the border check with a smile on my face.

This time I made it!

I walk thru customs where there is no one waiting.

I’m squeaky clean so I was never worried, but when I realize that they never once searched my bag. I think:

Shit, I could have snuck in some of that Eindhoven Hash

Rota Spain

Someone call the Cute Police. . . . There is about to be an arrest!

UPDATED 04/18/2017

 

I TRY TO BUY WEED IN A PET STORE

While walking in Rota last night,

I notice a small shop that has a pot poster in the window.

I make a mental note of where this shop is at, and vow to return tomorrow, when they are open.

 

It takes me awhile to find the store again.

Although I wander around for awhile I would not say I was ever truly lost,

and I realize that I have become comfortable navigating this small beach town.

Finally I see round about with the giant hands- it is directly across from that

which means I am almost there!

Yes! It is open! Wait a minute this is a. . . . a pet store?

I see the poster that I saw last night, so I go in.

It is a very small pet store.

I look around.

Pet stuff.

Pet stuff.

More pet stuff, and then I see it.

In a small standing glass case I see grow products with weed leaves on them. . . and seeds.

There are about five packages each containing cannabis seeds.

They are priced around Euro26.00

I hope.

I hope.

There is a book on top of the display and I thumb thru it

It is a catalog of what seeds are available.

I would buy some, but I do not have the time or a spot to grow a plant

(I will be in France in two weeks.

In a desperate attempt I decide I am going to ask the guy working if he has anything to sell.

Maybe out of his personal stash,

or the secret garden I hope is in the back.

maybe next to the dog food

He is talking to a customer,

and If this is gonna work it has to just be me and him in the store when I ask.

So I leave.

I walk around for about ten minutes, making notes of places I might like to eat at later.

I arrive back at the store but there is someone else inside.

This is a very small store so I know I will have a chance to be by myself but not right now.

I walk around a little more.

This time when I come back there is no one

I go back inside.

Hola! I say

Hola he answers.

Maybe he recognizes me from before

(I am sure it is weird to walk in and out of a place like I did)

he immediately comes over to help.

I try to explain:

My Espanol is un poco, I say.

Meaning very little, but in realty my Spanish is very bad.

He nods.

So in broken Spanish I attempt to ask if he will sell me weed.

I point at the case with the seeds.

I make the smoking a joint gesture with two fingers to my mouth.

Do you have? I ask in english

He looks confused and points at the case

We are not understanding each other

He calls over the Older Gentleman.

My first thought is, No not the old dude!

But the older Gentleman is just as polite.

I explain again that my Spanish is horrible,

and he corrects me on how to properly say that.

It goes in one ear and out the other. I am trying to buy weed here.

I explain, in English, that I am a tourist. It has been weeks since fumar Marijuana

.

I gesture to the case with the seeds. Plant. Do you have?

The younger Guy says a few things in Spanish, and I say SI..SI... thinking I understand

but he begins to open the case to get me some seeds.

No.

No that is not what I am wanting.

Two months, he says in English.

Meaning in two months I will have the smoke I desire.

But I do not have two months.

I ask now. Do you have now?

OH, now they understand, and answer no.

They look at each other.

The mood is light, so I am not feeling worried.

They go back behind the counter, and I snap the above pictures.

I leave with a smile saying

luego (later),

and they return the polite goodbye.

Damn it.

HOLY WEEK day 3

4/12/2017

I am in Rota Spain.

The noisy crowd goes silent

The Procession of Pasos has begun

I begin to sketch

I notice a few people watching me draw.

I am happy to show them.

They compliment me in Spanish, or at least that is what I think is going on.

I smile.

Do you not speak Espanola?, a younger man asks.

un poco, I answer (very little)

In broken English he asks how much for the sketch.

This is the second time someone has asked to buy the sketch while I am drawing Holy Week.

I try to tell him that it is not for sale, and show him the sketchbook with the other drawings.

An older man asks to take a photo. I agree.

These floats or Pasos are considered works of art, and I can see why.

They are giant life like wooden sculptures.

Depicting the Passion of the Christ

There must be about 20/30 people under each float, carrying it on their shoulders.

They do take breaks

As the Pasos is lowered I hear the wood creak and creak,

giving evidence to how heavy these things really are.

Two taps of a cane,

a signal to inside,

and the Pasos is raised in an upward thrust to continue the march.

believers touch it as it walks past

.

  

followed by a brass band follows.

  

I follow the procession, sketching.

  

I break off to try and get ahead so I can finish my drawing.

As I’m walking down narrow alleys ways I realize I have no idea where I am at.

But I’ll worry about that later.

Besides all I need to do is find the beach, and then I’ll know my way back.

  

I cut down this alley, and up another one.

I see a large crowd and I am able to finish the above drawing.

SASQUATCH 2016  

as lived by BOULET

 

 

May 26th 2016 

I'm part of a group of artists that have been invited by Ryan Henry Ward.  

This will be my first time at the Gorge. I hear it's gonna be awesome.  

Fueled on laughter an curls, Jessica and Roxy Rose get us there. 

Close to the festival she picks up two hitch hikers and drops them off at the main gate. 

Time to make our way to the artist camping grounds.

  

I find a spot, and set up a tent. 

Sasquatch is a four day festival, and this is just cold night one.  

I shiver myself to sleep and think "What the hell I've gotten myself into?"

FRIDAY MORNING- DAY 1 - I'm gonna be all right. 

For the next couple of days I'll be painting a mural with Henry. 

I'll be drawing people from the crowds.

This is for Pepsi's Kola House. 

It is a comic book mural. 

It will take us (Henry, the 3 Chicago artists, and me) four days to finish.

 

FINISHED MURAL 

Here are some detail shots of what I did:

The Three background characters here: 

All of the red / blue crowd scenes.

My fingerprints make up the red splatter!

See the little red heart? 

They would host Kola House podcasts in front of the work in progress. 

Photo credit unknown.

Sketching Henry at the Kola House stage.

 

 

THE BIG GRAMS BACKSTAGE STORY

Sunday night. Big Grams (Big Boi from OutKast and Phantograms) are playing the Bigfoot stage. 

I walk up to security and show them my orange backstage bracelet. 

The security guard frowns and says "No backstage passes tonight."

"But I'm the visual artist" I say, as I hold up my sketchbook, and a lanyard with my photo on it that says VISUAL ARTIST. 

(Thank you Melissa)

"Okay. That works." he says and opens the gate. 

I try but I am not able to actually get on stage, despite my pleas of needing to document the show correctly. 

So I walk around to the front of the stage. 

Here I am able to stand between the barrier of fans and the stage. At times Big Boi will only be a few feet from me. 

This is where the media is allowed, and about twenty of them run around snapping the same photo..

I dance. I draw. I enjoy the show. 

At some point they stop to wish the DJ a Happy Birthday. 

A pink pinata is lowered from the top of the stage and everyone wishes the DJ, who is also named JOSH a Happy Birthday. 

He swings, but the pinata is pulled up. He gives them a look. I can only see a certain amount being this close to the stage.  

After he demolishes the pinata he HURLS the large mop handle he was using, into the crowd

The Girl on stage screams "JOSH! What are you-!?"

Big Boi just stares. 

I couldn't see what happened, but I thought there is no way he really threw that mop handle.

Quickly Sarah, on stage, apologizes and the show gets back to jamming. 

A few songs later security comes up to me and says "All media has to leave! You gotta go!"

"But I'm the visual artist!" I say and show them my sketch. 

"Okay. He can stay." one guard points at me "but everyone else- OUT!"

Now it is just me and two security guards in all this space. 

I smile and continue to sketch. 

It took a few attempts but eventually I am able to produce something I am happy with.

BIG GRAMS at SASQUATCH 2016 by BOULET

 

 

I have time, so I turn around and sketch the crowd.

I stay until the show ends. When someone is yelling at the DJ to apologize, but I can't really hear, and the crowd groans.  

I walk around the back to try and get an Autograph, but Big Boi is GONE. 

I see Sarah of Phantograms, and wait to say hi. 

I show her my sketch and contemplate if asking her for an autograph would be okay. Then I think, wait, I might be like, only sign here, and that might be rude. What should I do? I stand there, smiling.  

She gives me a weird look and walks off. 

Damn.

I walk back to camp, tell my story, and hang out with my friends. 

Sunday ends. 

It will be late in the next day when I meet 

AMBER

There are three sides to this part of the story.

Mine, hers, and the truth.

This is mine. . .

When I see her, out of the corner of my eye, I abruptly I leave the conversation I was having and walk over to her.

I can already see that there is something special about her.

Politely, almost a little too shy, I ask to sit down.

"You're an artist?" I ask.

"Yes."

"You're also a. . . a . . . "

I stumble on my words.

Just say it Boulet. Just say what she is. You see it. So does everyone else. Besides, she is kinda cute.

"You're a Sasquatch, right?"

AMBER - THE FEMALE SASQUATCH ARTIST 

We talk a little bit. 

Apparently the Sasquatch tribes will socialize with the Humans ONLY once a year- at the SASQUATCH Music Festival

"Wow. I had no idea." I say.

She has some amazing art ideas.

I try to make her laugh.

As we talk I pick up a vibe that she might be flirting with me. Seriously?

I thank my lucky stars! I can already see our two styles melding together into some kind of weird Human Sasquatch obscure art greatness! 

Of course I could only see her once a year, but.... I'm not worried about that.

How does that saying go? True love knows no bounds? Yes...

Plus, she is kinda cutel. Wait, did I already say that?

I should have told her that then and there, because I get distracted by a friend or smoking weed, or something, I can't really remember,

but it will be a few hours before I see her again. . . .with another man.

She is sitting on top of the hill. 

I can see that she is sketching now. . . him.

He is a handsome Prehistoric Reptile type bird man. It is hard to describe. I'll just draw it-

Amber and the Bird Man - he swooped in, and I immediately disliked him. 

I try to give them some time, but he isn't leaving.

Finally I walk up the hill to say hi, but the vibe has already changed.

I watch her draw for a few seconds- just long enough for my heart to break, and then walk off. 

I am already lost in the crowd as I wave bye. 

MY HEART!

IT HURTS! 

Like a raging fire that can't be controlled. 

Each heart beat causes a pain that  pounds thru my body.

had just met her. I had nothing invested. How can it hurt like this?

I plop down in the grass at the main stage, and amongst the festival goers I smoke hash until I can forget about Amber.

Which turns out to be a lot of hash

A cute Sasquatch girl broke my heart.

but....

I am still alive.

TUESDAY MORNING

For the last day that damn sun wakes me up on time.

I quickly break down my campsite.

I high five all my new friends, hitch a ride, and get the fuck back to civilization and a warm shower. 

 

MY FAVORITE SASQUATCH MOMENT 

At one point I am back at the camp. Carl comes up to me and tells me that down at the main stage bar he was talking with some of the other artists. 

He tells me that everyone was saying how awesome of an artist I am.

Who? I quickly ask

He lists off a list that will forever stay close to my heart.

I give him a hug. 

THE END

THANK YOU FRIENDS! 

THANK YOU HENRY!

Thank you, my friends, beyond whatever words or art I could ever produce.

I'll give you a BIG HUG next time we meet.

Here is the backstory on this one.

The unfortunate house that is in front of the 50 bus/Alki gets a lot of foot traffic.

Just recently the owner (female) had begun to leave ‪‎chalk‬ out, with ideas for people to write things

One day I noticed the chalk was low so I anonymously dropped more off.

The sidewalk art continued

and then I saw this sign posted on the tree,

I am at home drawing. Waiting. Watching the Seahawks in Superbowl XLIX, and I must say they are looking pretty damn good. I think they are going do it! Yeah, they are gonna win!-- And that means there will be a riot downtown! 

It’s the 3rd quarter. 4th and down. I pull a Hail Mary- grabbing the sketchbook, and jump on a bus heading to Pioneer Square. On the ride there I have time to think. Wow, my first real riot. I have missed so many of the big ones. (I was close in NYC during Occupy) Hmmm, What if the riot became kind of a thing, a Victory Riot. It could be part of the game. Like how the commercials are now. What if each city was guaranteed a riot after the victory? It would give us a chance to let off a lot of steam, and maybe burn a few things. Isn.t that what this game is about anyway? So riding the 21 bus towards downtown I am able to convince myself that I am not going to just fuck shit up.

I get to Pioneer Square and Cops are EVERYWHERE. I join a crowd that has spilled out onto the street, watching the final two minutes of the game. A group of SPD are huddled around a news van. One of them screams. !YES! YES! Thank God yes! Then 7 seconds later the rest of us witness the miracle happen. Jermaine Kearse s amazing catch. I walk over to the Police group, staying a safe distance of course, and I watch the Seahawks lose 7 seconds before everyone else. The Fans scream !WHY? Why would you throw the ball on the one yard line?! I wonder if the pass had worked would they be screaming about the brilliance of the play?

A large group of Police are being sent home, and they look relieved. Blue and green pours out of the bars. Deflated. It actually happened. The Seahawks lost the Superbowl. That means…. There will not be a riot! Deflated, I walk around Pioneer Square. Man, no one is flipping over cars, or burning anything! Some people scream !SEA! !HAWKS!. I see someone snapping pictures of a cute dog. Everyone just seems really really sad that we lost. So I walk around and end up walking past the Mission Homeless Shelter. There are about 20 or more men outside. Some are smoking cigarettes. As I pass my thoughts are about what hardships their lives must have had to put them here. Then I remember this radio report I had heard earlier in the day, about a guy in Vegas betting almost a million dollars on the game. I looked at these homeless, possibly hungry people here, and thought ...Man, what a douche bag.

Eventually I make it to my bus stop where the universe places an attractive blonde. She has the Seahawks Eye Black, and tugs two small twin dogs. A hello leads to a conversation, and we end up boarding the C bus together. Not even one stop later I hear dispatch over the radio saying, !All buses do not take 1st avenue there are serious disruptions in Pioneer Square.! I rush to the front, and ask the bus driver if I can get off right here. !Are you serious! he asks. !Yes. I’m serious.! He hesitates. Then opens the door. I look both ways and then hope off. I hear someone in a sad voice say ....I want to riot.

As I rush towards Pioneer Square I play the bus moment over in my head. Man that was to cool. Total action movie moment. I know it. There was a cute girl, and everything. Wait a minute. I have no way of contacting that cute girl! Kaylee, if you read this you can call me at 206.555.0420.

I make it to Pioneer Square and there are no SERIOUS DISRUPTIONS here. The Square looks exactly the same as when I left it! Ugh! I walk around a little more, and finally a cop yells at me. !Hey get off the phone, and pay attention! I quickly do what I am told. After all, I am dressed in all black. Eventually I must accept that there is not going be a riot. I catch the C bus back to West Seattle. It is a crowded bus full of drunks that argue over how good poutine is. I safely make it back home and blaze my own Super Bowl.
