Back in January when I was thinking about how I would actually go about getting a new design completed each day for 28 straight days, there were a few events that I thought might be reasonable occurrences that could derail my plan. One thing that I certainly did not think of was that I would need to suddenly get my wisdom teeth pulled out, which is exactly what happened today. About that, there's really only one word that comes to mind:


Needless to say, I wasn't in shape to spend a lot of time on this today. I hope you all can forgive me. As I write this, I'm in the midst of what will probably be about a 20 minute long moment of clarity right after I've taken my pain medication, so I'm going to write as fast as I can. If I start talking about my bike being stolen and evil clowns, or me and Princess Leia inviting the Klopeks over for a barbecue, you'll know that moment of clarity is up.

Beyond that, today's crest is dedicated to Crew and United States Men's National Team legend Frankie Hejduk and inspired by his favorite musician. I did a version of this back in 2012 when the USMNT played Jamaica in a CONCACAF World Cup qualifying group stage match at Crew Stadium. I've wanted to do something new with it since then. It seemed like a good opportunity to repurpose it.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow and being able to work more on this project. There are lots of ideas still going through my head for these last two weeks of 28 in 28, and Pee Wee Herman and the Klopeks just showed up on bicycles so I should probably go. Time to reapply the ice packs and fire up the barbecue.
