Time flies when you're having fun! 09.09.10 is my daughter Marley's 2nd Borneversary, so we're scrambling to put together a birthday party for her (if you think you should be invited, you pro'lly are... get at me). I'm going to design the invitations and assorted printed crap for that, so keep your eyes peeled for some of the stuff, which I'll post for you. This sketch is a first shot fired, so to speak... hope you like it!

A little (Afro)Steampunk Fantasy

Wonderdark Rising by Samax Amen
This is one of the commissions* I have had on my desk screaming for attention for a minute. I'd say it's about 90% done

Father's Day Weekend photos


I hope everyone had a good Father's Day. We had a great weekend for this, my second Father's Day. On Friday, Charlene took Marley to a birthday party and where she got to wear her new yellow swimsuit and play in the kiddie pool with the other kids, who taught her how to scoop up water and pour it out on herself and others! Then we all went to the pizza place on Sunday. It was a simple, fun outing with the family... that's how I like it!

Wired for Empathy?

"We don't lose our... nationhood, religious identities or even our blood ties. We extend our identities so we can think of the human race as our fellow sojourners, and other creatures as our evolutionary family, and the biosphere as our community. We have to rethink the human narrative."
-Jeremy Rifkin
economist, speaker and activist

Quote of the Day

"When I am writing my problems become invisible and I am the same person I always was. All is well. I am as I should be."
-Roger Ebert
